Do your above-ground storage tanks have the best corrosion protection?
MATCOR’s reliable tank ring anode system is an easy-to-install impressed current cathodic protection solution that ensures your tank bottoms’ longevity.
Featuring patented Kynex® technology, we manufacture this unique system in concentric rings, so it is factory-ready for installation on your specific tank.
Tank Cathodic Protection Failure
There are four basic strategies to consider when your tank CP system is not working correctly: restore, replace, extend, or do nothing.
Learn how to evaluate which strategy is best for your tank in Ted Huck’s Tanks & Terminals article.
Internal Water Tank Anode Systems
Above-ground water storage tanks often have internal cathodic protection systems to supplement the interior coating system.
Our PF™-Anode is a proprietary MMO wire anode-based impressed current anode available to customized lengths and configurations and includes a chlorine-resistant Kynar® braiding to protect the anode against electrical shorts.
Using a Core-Drilled Anode System for Cathodic Protection
If the existing tank bottom has not yet reached the point where an entire tank bottom is warranted, then core drilling provides a solution.
MATCOR’s core drilled anode installation procedure allows us to safely install additional anodes and replacement reference cells to add service life and improve CP monitoring.
Product Feature: SPL-SANDANODE™
Our SPL-SandAnode is designed for cathodic protection where the anode is installed near or in contact with the structure and is the only impressed current linear anode made specifically for under-tank installation near metal.
