Six, heavy high silicon cast iron (HSCI) anodes, each 315 lb / 140 kg, are securely mounted on a corrosion resistant frame (sled). The sled weighs approximately 2,000 kg (4,410 lb), depending upon the size and length of shore lead cable. The footprint is nominally 2.1 m x 2.0 m x 0.6 m (7 ft x 6.5 ft x 2 ft).
The anodes are spaced for uniform current discharge and consumption. Although HSCI in sea water can withstand current discharge amperages exceeding 5 Amps/sq. ft.
(55 Amps/sq. m), the following factors should be considered.
- Environmental regulations may restrict sled discharge current to lower values. (i.e. less than 1 Volt/meter electric field strength in natural waters).
- Sled life will depend upon the weight of anodes (1,890 lb), the discharge amperage, their consumption rate, and utilization efficiency (85%).
