Maddox Sacrificial Marine Anode

Maddox sacrificial marine anodes protect your boat’s bronze and stainless steel components through a highly efficient pathway for cathodic protection. Maddox is an internationally accredited sacrificial anode for timber and fibreglass vessels.

 

Ultimate Cathodic protection system

An environmentally friendly way to protect your vessel, these anodes do not contain cadmium, unlike zinc anodes and are less aggressive on marine coatings than zinc anodes.

Installation of your Marine Cathodic Protection System:

Ingot’s qualified engineers suggest the following steps for installation:

  1. Use a paper template to mark and drill the anode to fit existing bolts.
  2. Use marine grease on bolts, star washers and locking nuts.
  3. Tighten to secure and ensure star washers cut into both anode faces.
  4. Check the internal bonding connection is tight and working as an effective part of the Vessel Bonding System.

What maintenance is required for Maddox SACRIFICIAL marine anodes?

The Maddox sacrificial marine anode has no moving or serviceable parts.

Ingot highly recommends regular visual anode inspections and a comprehensive inspection whenever the vessel is on hardstand.

  1. Ensure anode is firmly connected to terminals and check retaining nuts.
  2. Ensure the integrity of the electrical connection is maintained.
  3. Effective use of an anode in a closed circuit is dependent on its connection to a bonding system.
  4. Check star washers continue to be firmly attached to the anode.
  5. Visually inspect bonding wires where they are attached to the anode terminal bolts.
  6. Ensure all metals in circuit maintaining their connection.

Contact a qualified Marine Electrician for further information to test and monitor the vessel’s bonding system and anode connection.
