Galvanic Anode Life

Galvanic Anode Life

Magnesium Zinc Aluminum
Utilization (percent) =  
Weight (lbs) =  
Current (amps) =
Anode Life (yrs) =  

Select an anode material and utilization factor
Fill in any two fields and solve for the third.

* Energy capability is based on an efficiency of 95% for zinc, 85% for aluminum, and 50% for magnesium

Formula Used:

L = years of life
W = anode weight in lbs
C = energy capability in amp-hrs per lb
I = current output in amperes
U = utilization factor as a decimal
8760 = hours in 365 days
