Anodes and AF Systems

Anodes and AF Systems

The purpose of the combined antifouling anodes is to reduce vegetation and corrosion using an electrochemical process. An automatic system provides a direct current to the pure metal anodes installed in the sockets. The system addresses fouling and corrosion problems:

Copper ions released from copper anodes inhibit the growth of marine microorganisms that could clog the ship’s cooling systems.

The iron/aluminum ions released from the anodes rebuild and repair deteriorated or damaged surfaces.
