Magnesium Anodes For Freshwater Boating

This is where Deepwater’s engineers have a big advantage, as they’ve retrofit new anodes on more fixed platforms worldwide than anyone else. This patent covers the use of First Graphene’s cavitation process technology to directly grow conductive graphene nanoplatelets on to the surface of suitable particles, including silicon. The benefit is that the process is simple, scalable and uses readily available feedstocks that are processed under bulk ambient conditions, as opposed to standard industry practices that require temperatures in excess of 900°C. Another benefit is that the process is clean – hydrogen gas is produced as a byproduct. MG Duff has an experienced technical department and offers full design services and technical support as well as providing the most comprehensive range of sacrificial anodes and cathodic protection systems.

The team demonstrated a laboratory-scale full cell that delivers 500 charge and discharge cycles with 80% capacity retention at room temperature. This represents exciting progress for both the silicon anode and solid-state battery communities. An initial round of tests showed that the new battery is safe, long lasting and energy dense, and thus holds promise for a wide range of applications, from grid storage to electric vehicles. Nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego led the research, in collaboration with researchers at LG Energy Solution . Power Jacks are continuously developing new products to keep customers designs at the leading edge of technology and performance.

Here the carbon blocks are fused to a steel rod with molten cast iron. The rodded are then transported to the smelter potroom to be placed in the reduction cells. Here, the anodes are placed in a furnace at a temperature of 1120°C for a period of up to two weeks. Prebake anodes are produced in an area of the smelter called a “green mill” and are made from petroleum coke, pitch and recycled anode butts returned from the smelting process.

However we still support all our older technology , which are still in service worldwide. This is the cornerstone of the Generation 4 anode beam positioning system. The system is designed to meet the requirements of the latest pot designs, which have seen a significant increase in physical size and performance requirements. Both the new anode jack and its system have successgully completed potline testing and are now used in major potlines. The last stage of the anode production process takes place in the “rodding room”.

These materials are mixed together in heated containers and poured into moulds. For vertical or indexing conveyor systems, Membracon offers several design of Low Profile Bulkheads to reduce the necessary working height of the Anode Cell to a minimum. Also known as pressurised cells, they are offered in two primary styles, including a compression type fitting and a thread connection. They acts an opposing electrode to the substrate and remove excess acid generated in the paint bath during the E-coating process.
