Understanding of sacrifice in fresh water: Why magnesium anodes are an appropriate choice
Protect your boat from corrosion with proper anodes
What are boat anchors?
Boat anodes, also called victims or zinc, are made of a metal material that is more reactive than the boat's hull and drive system metal. The anodes are installed on the boat's hull and/or rudder and drive system to protect them from corrosion by attracting and corroding first.
Why are boat anods important for boats in fresh water?
Although fresh water does not lead electricity as well as salt water, it still contains minerals and other substances that can cause corrosion. The use of anodes helps to prevent this by creating a path for the electric current to flow, protecting the boat's hull and drive system.
Why is magnesium ancestry a suitable choice for boats in fresh water?
Magnesium anodes are an excellent choice for boats in fresh water because they have a higher driving voltage than aluminum or zinc anodes, making them more reactive and effective in preventing corrosion in fresh water. They are also a more environmentally friendly alternative because they have a lower impact on aquatic life compared to other types of anodes.
Advantages of using magnesium anodes for boats in fresh water:
- High protection against corrosion
- Environmentally friendly
- Easy to install
- Cost -effective
How do you choose the right magnesium anodler for your boat?
