American Carbon BADGERFLEX Linear Anodes are an excellent solution for cathodic protection of pipelines, above ground storage tank bottoms, and underground vessels. When compared to a traditional anode groundbed BADGERFLEX offers many advantages including a more evenly distributed current (therefore more efficient protection), ease of installation, and reduced interference with other nearby structures.

Constructed using either a high quality conductive polymer copper wire or a MMO/Ti wire connected at 10 ft intervals, high conductivity coke breeze, and surrounded by an acid resistant porous woven fabric sleeve, this anode is durable and easy to work with.

BADGERCABLE anodes capitalize on the high output to surface area of mixed metal oxide by packaging a complete cathodic protection system in an easy to install rope like assembly.  Listed below are our standard offerings but we can easily customize our product to your specific needs.
