Titanium Conductor Bar

Regarded as an ideal auxiliary anode material, titanium conductor bars are a bus bar to interconnect anode elements. It is designed to evenly distribute current to MMO titanium-based anode for many cathodic protection(CP) and Electro-Osmotic-Pulse(EOP) applications.

Considering the attenuation of all linear anodes, sometimes auxiliary conductors must be augmented. The titanium conductor bar is particularly useful for controlling attenuation over long spans. It is commonly used with MMO ribbon anodes or MMO mesh anodes for impressed current cathodic protection of aboveground storage tank bottoms and reinforced concrete structures.

The titanium conductor bar and the MMO ribbon/mesh anode are laid vertically to form a lattice grid pattern, and the intersections are connected by spot welding. The connection to the power source is achieved by a special anode joint.
