Jennings Anodes are delighted to announced that we are now manufacturing Mixed Metal Oxide Anodes (MMOs) at our specialist UK foundry, following a long-standing tradition of producing high quality anodes in the UK for more than 50 years.
Previously manufactured in China, adding the MMO production to the UK allows us to have greater control over production flexibility whilst helping to ensure we continue to offer our customers the reliability they have come to expect from Jennings Anodes.
WHAT ARE MMO ANODES?
MMO anodes provide a stable and durable solution for Impressed Current Cathodic Protection (ICCP) systems. They consist of a titanium core that is coated in a specially formulated mix of iridium tantalum and iridium ruthenium. This coating can be adjusted to better suit different environments or modify current output. The consumption rate of the coating is extremely low so can be designed to last up to 50 years.
Originally developed for the electrolytic production of chlorine and hypochlorites, the exceptional stability of MMO coated titanium anodes means they are now commonplace in cathodic protection applications.
Light and easy to install, they are specially formulated to withstand the simultaneous effects of oxygen and chlorine. MMOs are an ideal solution in sea water or fresh water containing low chloride levels. They are also highly durable in acidic mediums so are also often used in underground applications.
Operated by a team of experienced engineers, our foundry has the capacity to produce items of up to five meters long and 7000kg in weight ¨C a capability that is unrivalled by most foundries. We have a workforce in excess of 400 people in our foundries and have more than 50 years¡¯ experience in the manufacturing of Anodes.
We have supplied castings and anodes to the likes of GE, Tesla, Siemens, Shell, BP, Saudi Aramco, Exxon and many other industry leaders.
At Jennings Anodes, we pride ourselves on manufacturing our products to the strictest quality, traceability and international standards.
Our casting process ensures optimum anode performance and lifespan. We employ rigorous internal testing standards, in addition to third party testing, guaranteeing a high-quality product.
Wherever feasible, each anode is stamped with a unique serial and cast number for quality tracking and after-sales service, ensuring any issues can be easily identified and resolved in a timely manner.
