Sacrificial Anodes for galvanized iron Water Tanks


AnoGuard produce a range of anode kits to suit wall hugging "Modular" domestic style rainwater tanks ranging from 400 litres to 2200 litres capacity through to 450 litres to 22000 litres "Round Corrugated" domestic raintanks and finally both "bolt-on" and suspended style anodes for large sized rural tanks containing either rain or ground water (water type must be nominated when ordering as different anodes are required).

Tank with cutaway section showing
“ domestic” suspended anode


“Bagged Anode” used to protect external surfaces on ground mounted rural tanks.

"Suspended Anode” for
large rural water tanks


Each kit comprises either a 21mm or 27mm diameter
Magnesium sacrificial anode, suspending copper cable,
tank roof fastener, tek screws, nut setter and installation and operating instructions.

PLEASE NOTE: Some kits contain dual anodes. A single anode kit may be substituted but will require more frequent replacement.

DETAIL
SPECIFICATION

Anode Material: Designated M1 high potential extruded magnesium rod to AS2239-2003.
Cable: P.V.C. coated 7/1.04 copper cable of appropriate length with attaching eye.
Roof Fasteners: Hot dipped zinc, 90mm x 90mm x 1mm steel plate pre-drilled to take fasteners provided and provision for cable attachment.
Fasteners: 4 only 10-16 x 16mm Tek screws.
Instructions: Detailed assembly and installation instructions are provided with each kit.

GENERAL
Anode Life: The life of the anode will vary through differing factors such as water quality, internal tank wall area to be covered and the condition of the internal walls. For example the anode will be required to work harder to protect an older degraded surface than for a new zinc or galv. plated surface. A reasonable expectation in a new tank would be 10-15 years.
Replacement: It is recommended your anode be inspected on an annual basis and should be replaced when more than 150mm of its central wire core is exposed through corrosion.
Application: "Tank-Guard" anodes are recommended for use in both new and existing water tank applications.
When used in new water tanks the anode acts as a backup defence against corrosion with the primary barrier being the galvanised surface of the tank.
Where used in "older" tanks, the anode will progressively take over the job of protecting the internal surface from corrosion as the original galvanised surface deteriorates. It is not usually advisable to fit an anode to tanks with any degree of pre-existing corrosion as the resultant faster rate of consumption of the anodes can make it economically unviable
NOTE: "Tank-Guard" anodes installed as directed can not protect the external tank surfaces.
SAFETY
Australian Standard AS2239-2003 advises that magnesium anodes are commonly used in "potable water applications" as their corrosion by-products are non-toxic.
