Aluminium anodes are often the preferred
choice for pipelines, oil rigs, jetties
and all sizes of hulls in sea water.
They weigh less and provide the same
protection for nearly a quarter as long
again. They also cost less than the
same shaped poured anode in zinc. Slightly
increased driving potential encourages their use
in brackish water, but magnesium should be
used in fresh water.
For an aluminium hull anodes are usually zinc
but with aluminium tabs or inserts see ZHC
