Types of Wire Anodes
Magnesium anode rods and wires are the most widely recognized sort of anode used in the following application areas :
1. Water heaters
3. Pressure Vessels
Magnesium anodes are used when a desire exists to prolong the life of any strucutre where magnesium anodes can be applied.
Zinc anode rods or wires can be applied within the same areas as above, if the right conditions are in place. Zinc has a lower driving voltage and isn't as spark sensitive as magnesium and kan therefore be used in oil tanks, where no sparks are allowed.
