BADGERCAST High Silicon Cast Iron anodes are in service all across the United States. Since they are quite stable and have a long life they are usable in many different conditions.
Most are installed in deep ground beds that are commonly known for their occurrence of natural groundwater. Almost all of these installations are in conjunction with a carbonaceous backfill to ensure that good surface contact between the anode and the surrounding earth is achieved; however there are select instances with the correct soil composition where HSCI anodes may be installed without a coke backfill.
Deep groundbeds with multiple layers of groundwater are especially suited to BADGERCAST anodes where anodes can be staged in the water layers.
|Installation Environment||Current Density (Amps/SF)||Compsumption Rate (lb/Amp/Year)|
|Fresh Water or Bare Soil||0.25 – 0.5||0.25 – 0.45|
|Sea Water||0.9||0.75 – 1.1|
|Carbonaceous Backfill||0.7 – 1.0||0.15 – 0.30|
In larger than standard sizes (available upon request), BADGERCAST anodes do exceptionally well in seawater environments as well.
