Cathodic protection (CP) is a technique used to control the corrosion of a metal surface by passing positive connection in the anodes side and negative connection in the cathodes side.

Platinized cantilever anode is used for protecting pipeline internals, suction and condenser box internal for 30 years and more by applying DC current from rectifier. Cantilever anode is coated with platinum or MMO (mixed metal oxide). The cathode will be protected and could be monitor by the reference electrodes.

Platinized titanium rods are usually used in cantilever anode. 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.

Advantages of Platinum coating:

•          Low consumption rate that conserves precious platinum.

•          Corrosion resistance ensures durability with easy maintainability.

•          Light weight, as well as favorable current distribution in electroplating.

•          Favorable dimensional stability.
