This half was connected to a stepped-down anode of smaller radius. The centre compartment is used to carry the lead or other appropriate anode and electrolyte. The anode is handled in a special manner in order to render it non-porous and impervious to assault by the nascent chlorine evolved on its surface. The terms have been finalized in 1834 by William Whewell who adapted the words from the Greek word (kathodos), ‘descent’ or ‘means down’. William had consulted with Michael Faraday for the coining of the terms.
This technique offers a means of anode retrieval or substitute without diver assistance. The installation must be accomplished under the supervision of a corrosion specialist to verify that the installation is made in accordance with design specification and drawings. The casting must be dense and homogeneous to make sure that the anode properties are uniform all through their length. This procedure is traditionally … Read More
