LIDA® Pack Anodes

Lida Pack Anode

The LIDA® Pack Anode
LIDAŽ Pack canistered wire anodes are the perfect impressed current anode for shallow vertical and horizontal surface groundbeds, as well as wet, marshy soil conditions where caving is likely to occur.

The primary anode in a LIDAŽ Pack anode is a mixed metal oxide wire anode. The wire anode is comprised of a precious metal oxide coating applied to a copper cored titanium wire. The oxide coating is completely stable, and does not corrode, as is the case with traditional massive type anodes, such as silicon iron, graphite, or even platinum.

The stable anode element passes current to a highly conductive calcined petroleum coke backfill. The backfill is well compacted inside a galvanized steel canister. To allow moisture to quickly migrate to the coke backfill for increased electrical conductivity, the wire anode element is electrically connected to the steel canister - thereby accelerating the canister corrosion rate once the anode has been installed and energized.
