MMO Ribbon & Ti Conductor Bar

Jennings Anodes manufactures MMO Ribbon using a bespoke automated production line, consisting of meticulous surface preparation of the titanium substrate, uniform mixed metal oxide coating application and thermal treatment in large stoves, enabling us to produce a homogeneous coating with superior adhesion properties whilst maintaining a production capacity up to 1,000,000 meters per year.

MMO Ribbon consists of a solid ribbon of titanium substrate to ASTM 265 Gr 1 coated with precious mixed metal oxides (IrO2 /Ta2O5). All MMO anodes benefit from being pre-oxidized in a controlled environment prior to field installation meaning they are not reliant on protective film formation when installed and operational. MMO coating is highly conductive and the anodes have a very low consumption rate. This combination of characteristics results in a long-life expectancy even when the anode is subjected to a high current density rating. For example, MMO Ribbon life can exceed 50 yrs. with a 3A/m2 Current Density.

  • Mixed metal oxide surface is susceptible to abrasion damage
  • There is an attenuation in long MMO ribbon
  • “Break down” voltage should be considered for usage in soil with high resistivity 

MMO Ribbon Anodes are commonly used as ICCP systems for above ground storage tanks. Ribbon is often spot welded to Titanium Conductor Bar forming a grid arrangement under tank bottoms providing a system with an even distribution of current. MMO ribbon is used for new and old structures and steel reinforced concrete structures.

MMO Ribbon is also used for CP applications where there is a high current demand is combined with limited space.  

Ribbon is suitable to be directly buried into fine sand without any need for carbon backfill.
