  Anode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Diagram of a zinc anode in a Daniell's cell.
Sacrificial anodes are particularly needed for systems where a static charge is generated by the action of flowing liquids, such as pipelines and watercraft.
The opposite of an anode is a cathode.

 Sacrificial anode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A sacrificial anode is a metallic anode used in an electrochemical process where it is intended to be dissolved as part of the process.
One example is the galvanic anode used in a cathodic protection system, where the intended purpose is to prevent corrosion of a desired piece of metal (such as a ship's hull, an oil pipeline, or a water heater) by being more electronegative than the desired metal.
Another example of a sacrificial anode is the anode in an electroplating process whereby the metal in the anode replaces the metal that is depleted from the plating solution as it is deposited on the cathode.

The load limit of a stationary anode is given by the temperature that is reached in the copper at the boundary between the tungsten target and the copper stem.
The modern rotating anode tube uses a disk-shaped anode, normally made of molybdenum, with a 1-2 mm thick surface layer consisting of an alloy of tungsten and rhenium (5-15%) (Fig.2).
Anodes with large graphite backings are therefore found in equipment where momentary high tube loads are used, for instance in CT scanners.

 Anode Rods from FAMOUS PLUMBING SUPPLY
The possibility of the old water heater anode rod becoming broken off, and then falling to the bottom of the water heater (and then bouncing around whenever water travels inside the water heater) is what will deteriorate the water heater tank lining very quickly.
Anode rods that come installed with water heaters generally will be made of magnesium or aluminum that is wrapped around a steel core wire.
That is the theory of the anode rod.

 Galvanic anode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A galvanic anode, also known as a sacrificial anode, is one of the main components of a galvanic cathodic protection system used to protect metals from corrosion, by the use of a metal electrode which is itself consumed instead in an anodic oxidation reaction.
This is the galvanic anode: the pipeline is electrically connected at intervals to buried plates of magnesium.
Zinc and zinc alloys are often used for galvanic anodes, for example in salt-water cooled marine engines and on yacht propellers.

 Oilfield Glossary: Term 'anode'
Half of an electrolytic corrosion cell in metal is called the "anode," from which metal dissolves, often leaving pits.
The anode is the part of a corrosion cell in which oxidation occurs.
Anodes (often made of Mg or Al metal) are sacrificed intentionally to protect a steel system, such as a buried pipeline or offshore platform.

 Electrochemistry Dictionary
Different areas of the surface act as anode and cathode, at the anodic areas the metal is oxidized to an oxide while at the cathodic areas the dissolved oxygen is being reduced.
In contrast, in the spontaneous electrochemical reaction in a galvanic cell the hydrogen is oxidized at the anode by transferring electrons to the anode and the oxygen is reduced at the cathode by accepting electrons from the cathode.
The hydrogen is oxidized at the anode by transferring electrons to the anode and the oxygen is reduced at the cathode by accepting electrons from the cathode.

 Anode plate structure patent invention   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The anode plate is arranged opposite to the cathode plate, with an area that is smaller than the surface area of the cathode plate, and the anode plate is located inside the cathode plate when the display device is viewed in a plan view so that all four-side edges of the cathode plate are exposed.
The upper and lower relation between the anode plate and the cathode plate is a positional correlation between the anode plate and the cathode plate in a cross-section view.
That is, the entire portion of the anode plate is not located within the boundaries of the cathode plate which is located under the anode plate, but a portion of the anode plate extends from the edges of the cathode plate and is exposed outside the boundaries of the cathode plate.

 The "HOLMESTEAD": Electric hot water tank anode.
If the anode has rotted away such that it is less than 3/8” diameter, or has any exposed bare steel core then it needs to be replaced.
Depending on water conditions, an anode can last from one to ten years but many localities treat their water, which can have significant effect on the life of your heater and the anode.
Note that the anodes are perhaps thirty to forty inches in length.

The rods on the right are unused anode rods; the far one, with a hollow PVC section, is designed to be installed as a secondary anode in the hot water outlet port.
Anodes should be checked every three or four years if water is normal and every one or two years if water is acidic or artificially softened.
Tanks with a hex head anode can be equipped with a second anode by adding a combination rod in the hot port (as many 10-year warranty tanks have).

 Vacuum power tubes, using old valves, and vacuum tube failures
Internal anode tubes are cooled by infrared radiation, by direct thermal conduction to the envelope, and through external connections via leads exiting the envelope.
Peak anode voltage in a properly tuned and properly driven amplifier approaches two times the dc anode potential, and under conditions of mistuning, load faults, or excessive drive anode voltage can be several times the dc anode potential.
Glass internal anode tubes generally have the gettering material coated on anodes, which must be operated a high temperatures to activate the getter.

Unlike the metal anodes typically used in batteries, the fuels in a fuel cell are usually gas or liquid, with oxygen as the oxidant.
Lithium is gaining a lot of popularity as an anode for a number of reasons.
Note that lithium, the lightest of the metals, also has the highest standard potential of all the metals, at over 3 V. Some of the lithium cell designs have a voltage of nearly 4 V. This means that lithium has the highest energy density.
