Aluminum anode bolted for ship
Aluminum anode is a kind of sacrificial anode, also known as aluminum alloy sacrificial anode, aluminum sacrificial anode, aluminum block, etc. It is called a sacrificial anode because it corrodes itself, sacrificing itself and protecting more important metals or equipment. Sacrificial anodes are made of corrosion-prone materials and installed on protected bodies such as pipes and storage tanks to protect other parts of the system from corrosion. Sacrificial anodes are also known as galvanic anodes. Aluminum anodes are one of the common sacrificial anodes that can be applied to many types of industrial equipment to protect them from corrosion.
