The surface condenser waterbox, tubes and the tubesheet can all be made of different metal alloys that are in contact with the circulating water. The water becomes the electrolyte between the metal alloys creating electrolytic corrosion. An impressed current cathodic protection system consisting of probe anodes can be employed to mitigate this problem.
Bayanode Probe Anodes - Designed for physically harsh environments where protective current is required. This anode provides superior operating endurance in condenser waterboxes, large diameter piping, and storage tank applications.
Probe Reference Electrodes(half-cells) - Important devices that permit measuring the potential of a metal surface exposed to an electrolyte. An example is a structure-to-potential measurement.
