RE: Embeddable ICCP Anodes for Atmospherically Exposed Steel-Reinforced Concrete


Dear Daniel,
CC Technologies has completed the testing of specimens from a single anode (prefabricated from titanium mesh
and coated with mixed metal oxide (MMO)) submitted by Ningbo; testing was conducted in accordance with NACE
TM0294 Testing of Embeddable ICCP Anodes for Atmospherically Exposed Steel-Reinforced Concrete (2007
version).
The test solutions were 30 gram per liter sodium chloride solution (3% NaCl), 40 gram per liter sodium hydroxide
(4% NaOH), and simulated pore water. The simulated pore water composition was 26.3 grams of sodium hydroxide
(NaOH) per liter of solution,10.74 grams of potassium chloride (KCl) per liter of solution, and 2.15 grams of calcium
hydroxide (Ca[OH]2) per liter of solution. As a part of the tests, the pore water test cells were filled with ASTM C778
sand before pouring in the solution. The NaCl and NaOH test cells were filled with solution only. All of the chemicals
used to make the test
solutions were reagent grade materials. Deionized water was used to replenish solution
losses due to evaporation.
The tests cells were one liter glass containers which contained an anode mesh test specimen, a titanium counter
electrode (cathode), and a Luggin probe for potential measurements. The titanium rod (counter electrode) was
0.500 inch in diameter and 8 inches long. The gap between the anode and the cathode was maintained at two
inches throughout the testing. In the NaCl and NaOH test cells, a removable Luggin probe was used for potential
measurements. A semi-permanent Luggin probe was installed into each pore water / sand test cell and was not
removed until the end of the evaluation. The test cells were connected in series and grouped together based on the
type of solution present inside of the cell. Power was delivered to the test cells using a constant current, filtered DC
power supply with a maximum ripple of 5%. The specimens were 5 cm long and 2 cm wide. Given that the samples
were made from mesh material, the current was maintained at 11.4 mA to produce the target current density of 108
mA/m2. The duration of the testing period was six months (180 days).
The measurements taken during the evaluation were the cell potential, the anode potential, the cell current, and pH.
Measurements were taken after 1 min, 1 hour, and 8 hours (reverse current test) and 1, 24, 168, and 336 hours and
every fourteen days after that, with the final reading at 180 days (normal current test).
Tables 1 through 3 present a summary of values measured during testing. The results suggest that, in accordance
with the failure criterion stipulated by the NACE TM0294, the tested samples should be considered as having had
passed the test.
Thank you for the opportunity to provide this service. If you have any questions regarding this work, please contact
me at (614) 761-6919 or Mark.Yunovich@dnv.com.
Sincerely,
CC TECHNOLOGIES, INC. (a DNV company)

Anode Galvanic
Magnesium Anode

Magnesium anodes are commonly used in cathodic protection, as Mg metal has the more negative potential than other
galvanic materials.
Howerer, in order to ensure the high quality of the magnesium anode, we not only use the high pure magnesium ingot, but
also take advanced technology to insure the purity of the alloy.
Our company have developed a new casting technology over more than ten years of anode manufacturing experience.
We only use the above 80% high pure alloy of the melting in casting the anode, and further the whole casting procedure is
protected by inert gases so that the anodes would not contain any inpurities, such as the oxidation slag inclusion caused
by solvent and burning. By adopting this developed technology our anodes can avoid the common defects brought from
the conventional hand casting.

Mg High Potential Anode


Our high potential anodes are made from high purity Mg metal superior to normal indutrial standard. The anode
produced by special casting technology, have superior electrochemical properties tested according to ASTMG97-89
standard. In the course of use, the anode is consumed uniformly, thereof have a longer life.

Prepackaged Mg anode (Environment safe)


Above bare Mg anodes could be supplied after being prepackaged. The bare Mg anodes will be assembled with
cable and sealed with epoxy resin, and packaged in cotton bag.

We suggest use our high potential Mg anode in soil with resistance higher than 2000ohm.cm.

As the prepackaged anodes are buried under the ground, if there is any harmful element in the backfill of prepackaged anodes, this element will leak to the earth and groundwater when the anode is in use, which will pollute the environment.

2.MMO tube anode

Mixed Metal Oxide Anode

The research of mechanism and application development for electro-active coatings on Titanium was started in early
1980's. Various kinds of multi-elements coatings have been developed. The mixed metal oxide anode has an extremely
low consumption rate, measured in terms of milligrams for ampere-year. Whether operating in soil, fresh water, and or sea
water, mixed metal oxide coatings demostrate very high chemical stability even in environments with very low PH values.
Yuxi's supply high performance MMO anodes suitable for soil, sea mud, seawater, and fresh water environments. In
seawater, the suggested working current density is: 600 A/m2, and in fresh water :100A/m2.

Main Features:
Suitable to use various kinds of reference electrode including zinc electrode, Ag/AgCl electrode, Cu/CuSo4 electrode.
The units reliability and stability is significant improved by using all serious of integration & modularization electronic
circuit. The updated integration & modularization also simplified the operation and maintenance work of the unit.
By using the high impedance digital meters which enable the units input impedance reaches 5M, the units potential
measurement precision is much improved.
Auto error conversion system can insure the system convert to the preset constant current status at a time of the failure
of the cathodic protection system, such as the potential diversification caused by instruments, anodes, circuits, reference
electrode, etc.
Overload protection, short protection circuits are configured to insure the safety of the unit. The unit is preinstalled with
three sets of surge arrester (8-20s) which on anode & cathodic terminals 40KA, reference electrode terminal 40KA and
AC input terminal 40KA respectively, additional surge arresters are optional.
