A reference electrode must have specific electrical, physical and chemical properties. It must facilitate the measurement of accurate pipe/soil/reference electrode potentials on pipelines. It must ideally have a stability that is sustainable for years. For this to occur it should not be polarized by the very low electrical current that will flow in a measurement circuit. The potential should be measured with a high impedance multi-meter or voltmeter.

Reference electrode allows you to measure the potential of the working electrode without passing current through it while counter (auxiliary) electrode allows you to pass current. If oxidation occurs at the working electrode, reduction using the same magnitude of current is sustained at the counter electrode and hence there is no current flow between working and reference electrode(high input impedance) enabling us to follow changes in working electrode potential accurately. This is not possible in a two electrode system although we can get crude values by using certain types of electrodes which can act simultaneously as working and reference electrode.

PLATINUM PLATED MESH for electro oxidation to treat the water

PLATINUM PLATED MESH for electro oxidation to treat the water

In recent years, there has been increasing interest in finding innovative solutions for the efficient removal of contaminants from water, soil and air. Government also strictly insist the industries to make a zero discharge and chemical contamination free soil and water to protect our environment.

ELECTRO OXIDATION AND ELECTRO COAGULATION process together treats the water as a disinfection using our Platinized titanium mesh.

By passing the DC current through Platinised titanium mesh leads to remove BOD COD ratio landfill leachate was conducted by means of electrochemical oxidation process. Electrochemical oxidation process is effective in removing pollutants from landfill leachate.  

Depending on the effluent nature, an increase of the conductivity of the solution may be required: the value of 1000 mS/cm is commonly taken as a threshold. Salts like sodium chloride can be added to the solution, acting as electrolytes thus raising the conductivity. Typical values of salts concentration are in the range of few grams per liter, but the addition has a significant impact on power consumption and can reduce it by up to 30%.    

Electro-oxidation (EO), also known as anodic oxidation, is a technique used for wastewater treatment, mainly for industrial effluent playing roll in advanced oxidation process. The most general layout comprises two electrodes, operating as anode and cathode, connected to a power source.

Electro-oxidation is an excellent and eco-friendly technique for the removal of persistent organic contaminants, electrochemical advanced oxidation processes are ordinarily used to remove COD and BOD presence in the water.

Platinum electrode provides good conductivity and they are inert and stable at high potentials. At the same time, the oxygen evolution over potential is low and comparable to that of graphite. As a result, electro-oxidation with Platinum electrodes usually provides low yield due to partial oxidation of the compounds. The contaminants are converted into stable intermediates, difficult to be broken down, thus reducing current efficiency for complete mineralization

However, this technique suffers the primary disadvantage of high energy consumption and low current efficiency.


Tiaano supplying the ELECTRO OXIDATION systems and its spares for the different regions. Also we are supplying the MMO Coated plates (titanium) instead of platinized titanium mesh to treat the water.

Platinized FRP insulated strip for Cathodic protection  in ship hull protection

Platinized Titanium anodes take advantage of the low consumption rate and high current density. Voltages in excess of 10 Volts will result in severe pitting of the titanium core causing premature failure. Exterior protection of ships hulls - anodes in the shape of plates, discs or strips

Platinized FRP insulated strip Anode with impressed current leads to protect the hull of the ships. Negative terminal which is connected to ship hull and positive terminal with impressed current anodes.

Underwater steel structures protection like wharves, jetties, sheet pile walls and piers. Usually rod type anodes distributed throughout the structure to be protected to give a good overall protective current distribution.

Change in the potential of an electrode as the result of current flow to or from that electrode. Also, a change in the potential of a corroding metal from its natural steady-state value, as a result of current flow. “Depolarization” is the reverse process of Polarization. Depolarization is sometimes referred to as "hypo polarization”.

For cathodic protection applications two primary electro catalysts are used:

1.         Ruthenium Oxide (RuO2)

Ruthenium oxide is the catalysts, should only be used in chlorinated environments (sea water). The catalytic life is significantly reduced when the primary reaction is the evolution of oxygen (fresh water, soil, coke backfill and concrete environments).

2.         Iridium Oxide (IrO2)

Most CP manufacturers use Iridium Oxide based mixed metal oxide for their cathodic protection anodes. The bulk oxides are typically a mixture of Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) and Tantalum Oxide (TaO5). Their primary purpose is to provide an oxide film over the substrate material to prevent corrosion of the substrate.


Titanium MMO Anode Advantages

Ø  Titanium is readily available in commercially pure form

Ø  Excellent adherence properties with proper surface preparation

Ø  Lightweight

Ø  Outstanding mechanical strength.

Ø  High flexibility.

Ø  Outstanding chemical resistance to highly acidic conditions – typical for oxygen and chlorine evolving environments common in many cathodic protection applications.



MMO COATED TUBULAR ANODE will be supply in two types

1.         Single string (consist of a single anode with cable)

2.         Multi string (consist of two or more anodes connecting with a string)

Anodes are connected with the cable by a) LIDA connection b) CPCC connection.

(20 years Lifetimes stated are nominal, we can supply Amps / life different to stated standards on request)




PLATINIZED ROD is used for cathodic protection with Impressed Current Cathodic Protection system

clock November 9, 2019 11:38 by author admin

Impressed Current Cathodic Protection systems are the ultimate solution for all corrosion problems to protect the metallic structure for long time and are recognized as a superior alternative to sacrificial anode systems which require frequent replacement. Impressed current cathodic protection systems are preferred by ship owners because they reduce fuel cost and maintenance.

ICCP (Impressed Current Cathodic Protection)anodes are controlled amount of DC current to submerged surfaces like underground oil wells using highly reliable mixed metal oxide anodes and zinc reference electrodes. This electrical current, constantly monitored and regulated by the system itself to prevent the electrochemical action of galvanic corrosion before it begins.

Platinized Titanium Rod are usually used in cantilever anode which is used for protecting pipeline internal, pump internal & condenser box internal for 30 years and more by applying DC current with transformer rectifier.

Normally titanium is well known for its high resistance to corrosion both water and chemical media. But titanium is the poor electricity conductor. So we use platinum/ MMO plating/Coating to increase the conductivity.

We Tiaano is the supplier of cathodic protection over 65 countries like Israel Electricity, Aramco etc., and owning the name created the regular customer for us.
