Impressed Current Linear Anode

spl-fbr-linear-anodeThe SPL-FBR-Anode is primarily for cathodic protection of pipelines, in congested areas and beneath above ground storage tanks (ASTs). It is available in all standard SPL-Anode current outputs and in long continuous lengths. It is a complete, ready to install anode system encased in coke backfill.

The SPL-FBR-Anode is available in standard long lengths of 500 ft (152 m), 1000 ft (305 m) and 1,640 ft (500 m); custom lengths up to 2500 ft (762 m) are also available.

SPL-FBR-Anode Product Benefits

  • Single package impressed current linear anode system with uniform current distribution
  • Flexible
  • Can be installed by cable plow, trenching or other methods
  • Continuous mixed metal oxide anode
  • Uses patented MATCOR Kynex® waterproof connections.

Note: Some larger size cables and anodes for special orders may use the standard MATCOR five-step connection process

SPL-FBR-Anode Components

Engineering Drawing »

Anode: continuous mixed metal oxide anode sized for the rated current output and life.

Cable: a continuous high molecular weight polyethylene covered stranded copper cable sized for the current rating.

Kynex Waterproof Connections: the Kynex connections between the anode and the internal header cable are spaced to provide uniform current distribution.

Backfill: conductive coke backfill, machine-packed inside the fabric housing.

Fabric Housing: a continuous non-degrading fabric formulated for SPL-Anodes that allows water and vapors to pass, but contains the coke backfill.

Braiding: heavy duty and *color-coded for easy identification. *Yellow thread=25mA/ft rating; White thread=100mA/ft rating; Red thread=200mA/ft rating.

Packaging: supplied on wooden reels and suitable for export.

The SPL-FBR-Anode can be designed for any application using the rated current outputs and is available in standard long lengths of 500 ft (152 m), 1000 ft (305 m) and 1,640 ft (500 m). Custom lengths up to 2500 ft (762 m) are also available.

Contact MATCOR for assistance with designing or ordering SPL-FBR-Anodes.

The SPL-FBR-Anode can be installed by laying it in a hand- or machine-dug trench or cable plowing. The linear anode can be easily field cut to appropriate lengths and/or it can be spliced to other SPL-FBR-Anode segments. Please see the SPL Linear Anode Installation Manual below or contact MATCOR for assistance with your installation.
