Anode  information  

Riddlesdown manufacturing  specialises in  making special application anodes, the 1 off , no one else wants to do 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 help .

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.

Corroded Anode

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" or 1.00" B.S.P. anode plug (sometimes called a spud).

All anodes can be made and supplied to any length required. These are all available for same day delivery .

Block and disc anodes are available in  various sizes. These can be machined overnight to fit any size required for delivery  the next day.

Gaskets are also supplied in Nebar, rubber  and cork,  custom cut to fit individual  machines, again cut overnight where possible and  delivered the next day.  If urgent can be cut and delivered the same day.
