Lead (Pb) anodes are not made of pure lead but more commonly made of metal alloys for better conduction of electricity. These kinds of hydrometallurgical electrode anodes may not always have the same composition. They differ greatly between the devices in which they are used. The different types of alloys that are used in the lead anode may include tin, silver, calcium, antimony and tellurium. Lead alloy anode is commonly used to place it in a device as a component for electro winning cells. In these devices, the anodes conduct high densities of electrical currents, and come in the form of finger-like rods. Additionally, lead anodes are highly resistant to corrosion from seawater. They are therefore more economical for use on systems that protect offshore rigs and ships from cathodic conditions. CORROCO lead alloy anode is featured with high strength, high conductivity, high corrosion resistance, long service lifetime, low production cost and good machining property.

In the process of designing a system for permanent stainless steel cathodes, it is necessary to ensure that optimum electrowinning conditions can be achieved and controlled. During commissioning and operation, the control of electrowinning conditions and maintenance of operational standards are important. This kind of hydrometallurgical electrodes are designed to last the life of the project. They are widely used in Zn/Cu/Ni electrowinning both at home and abroad. This cathode has excellent electric performance and good mechanical property. We use wooden boxes to avoid deformation during transportation.

Aluminum cathodes have been used for many years to replace lead cathodes, lead tanks, and lead cooling coils in the anodizing process. There are a number of benefits to use this cathode to replace lead. Firstly, it removes a contributing source of lead to the waste stream. Secondly, The hydrometallurgical electrode plate is much more efficient in the transfer of current for the anodizing process. The anodizing process is based on symmetry. The proper spacing of the cathode material provides this symmetry. It is widely used in Zn EW in domestic and overseas Zn smelters for its excellent electric performance and good mechanical property. As a professional company, CORROCO can not only provide aluminum cathode plates as per your requirement, but also can provide the most advanced designing for you.

Hydrometallurgical Electrode

Hydrometallurgical electrode is metal mineral raw materials (in the acidic medium or alkaline medium aqueous solution in chemical processing or organic solvent) extraction, separation and purification, impurity, extraction metal and its compound process. It is suitable for low grade ore. Hydrometallurgy is favorable to the environment protection. The production process is easy to realize with continuous automation. The process essence of hydrometallurgical electrode is to meet the demands of production, control the stability of substance and to realize the separation and extraction of metal from the aqueous solution.
