Mg Rod
MG Rod:

There are four primary areas where extruded anodes offer important advantages in cost, performance, and ease of installation:

  1. Water heaters and water storage tanks, where a small diameter anode simplifies installation.
  2. Steel located in high resistivity electrolytes, where a small diameter anode gives a desirable current output to anode weight ratio.
  3. Gas service entrance piping, where a small diameter anode can be driven into the ground to provide convenient and inexpensive protection.
  4. Prepolarization of structures in seawater, where a small diameter anode gives short-term, high-current output.
