MMO Ribbon Anode and Titanium Conductor Bar

  • UTron Helen

The MMO Ribbon Anode consists of mixed precious metal oxides that are sintered to the surface of titanium substrate to have electro catalytic characteristics. This mixed metal oxide anodes have an extremely low consumption rate, the titanium substrate remains constant throughout the design life of the anode. It can be used in fresh water, brackish water, seawater, coke, or sand environment in cathodic protection application with long operating life.

UTron manufactures MMO ribbon anodes by using pure titanium substrate, which meets ASTM B265 in Grade 1 or Grade 2 standards, coated with precious mixed metal oxides IrO2/Ta2O5 for a maximum current density of 17 mA/m. They can be used in sands with various levels of moisture and salt contents, and can be designed to provide effective protection for 50 years and more. Strict quality procedures are followed throughout the coating process to ensure proper adhesion and loading. The coating is strictly following Tape test as per ASTM D 3359 -97 and NACE 0294 - 2007 9 months test - cell voltage and single electrode potential S.E.P..The MMO ribbon anode is proven to perform high quality.
Features: Conveniently cut and welded in the field to suit various geometries; Easy installation - eliminates the need for expensive and time consuming saw cuts and grouting; Surface mounted - provides even current distribution, reduced potential for shorts to rebar;. Low system electrical resistance; Durable - extremely long expected service life (75 yr); Lightweight – 100 feet of the (6.35mm) ribbon weighs slightly more than 1lb; Dimensional stability eliminates issues associated with connection seals; Economical - efficient installation reduces total installed cost. Applications: Bridge substructures Buried steel structures; Reinforced concrete structures; Underground and above ground storage tanks. Working Environment: evolution O2, Cl2; or soil, fresh water, brackish water, and seawater.
