Titanium basket as an anode shield





November 23, 2011

I have a question regarding anode shielding. Using soluble anodes, if the anode basket were to have an additional strip of metal such that the top of the basket is closer to the material than the bottom would this affect the distribution?

Or simply having a bar of titanium through the middle of the basket such that the titanium is closer to the material, how would the distribution be affected?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, Scott

I would tend to doubt it because the titanium is anodized and non-conductive as a surface, although the anodized coating is thin enough that metallic contact can be made to it.
