CerAnode’s MMO PiggyBack TM Linear (PBL) Anode System
A GOOD CHOICE FOR CONTINUOUS ANODES - Arrives On-site ready to lay in place. ORDER WITH OR WITHOUT COKE SOCK
CerAnode™ developed MMO linear anode technology and assigned the trademark PiggyBack™ in 1992. The technology is used around the world for applications including tank bottoms, underground vessels, bullet tanks and pipelines. The first PiggyBack™ installation was in 1993. Since that time continuous close-proximity anode-to-cathode applications have become a common design approach. In many applications this technology has significant advantages compared to traditional discrete anode arrangements. The technology provides optimized current distribution, optimized polarization characteristics, optimized groundbed resistance, optimized interference mitigation and better than ever power efficiencies.
Depending on the application the linear anode can be ordered with or without Coke Sock.
The sock material employed is GREEN in that it is environmentally safe. The anode’s sock decomposes leaving a conductive horizontal column at the position where it was buried allowing protection currents to pass freely to the structure. The MMO anode core is firmly positioned to protect the structure for many decades.
Since CerAnode manufactures the key components of the system, the product specification can easily be customized. Parameters such as design life, current rating, wire diameter, cable size and insulation type can be specified and manufactured quickly.
