anodes, all quickly and efficiently , we also make anodes to your
drawings and specifications. Be it for water chillers, heat
exchangers, boats, bores, pumps, casings, tanks, steel vessels, sheds or
anything metal needing anodes call Riddlesdown Manufacturing for
Anodes manufactured by Riddlesdown Manufacturing are made from magnesium alloy with a mild steel threaded plug and are welded on the
joint where the steel core passed through the plug. When all of the
magnesium has been used up and the anodes useful life is over, the steel
wire core is left attached to the steel plug and is removed when the
anodes is changed.
Anodes made by some other manufacturers have the magnesium rod simply
pressed into a brass plug and as soon as these anodes are put into
service the magnesium starts to corrode where it comes into contact with
the superior material of the brass hollow plug. In a very short time the
anode becomes loose and falls out of the plug and either rattles around
in the turbulent water chipping and damaging the coating on the
condenser ends, or can be drawn into the circulating pumps where it will
cause varying degrees of damage to the pump impellers as it is chopped
up. These bits can travel around the system until they find valves and
control units causing them to fail.
The longer series anodes produced by Riddlesdown Manufacturing have
an additional thread cut into the inside of the plug to prevent the
steel cored magnesium component coming adrift. Magnesium is the most
used metal for the manufacture of sacrificial anodes. It can be used in
many applications, fresh water, chemically treated water, and direct
earth burial are a few.
The magnesium pencil anodes made by Riddlesdown Manufacturing
specifically for condenser ends and heat exchangers are available in a
variety of sizes and lengths ; the most popular anodes have one end plain and one end
threaded and fitted to a hex head 1/4",3/8",1/2",3/4"
