Minitek - protecting steel hulls against corrosion
The video shows how the Minitek impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) safeguards steel hulls against corrosion. The system consists of flush mounted anodes and reference electrodes which are connected to a control panel. The anodes produce a small current which neutralises corrosive activity on the hull surface. Unlike sacrificial anodes, the Cathelco anodes only need replacement every 15 years or more with significant savings in maintenance costs.
