The "Husky" Drive-in anode is made from a high purity extruded alloy rod having a .125" diameter steel core. In most environments, the oxidation potential is 1.4 to 1.5 volts. A crimped copper sleeve connection is solder wicked into the joint and a 100% silicone rubber (of marine and electrical noncorrosive grade) is used as the encapsulating sealant.
The standard "Husky" magnesium anode is supplied with 3 feet of TW12 solid copper wire. Other wire lengths are available upon request. Designed with a UHMW polyethylene drive cap, the lead wire and soldered connection are protected during installation.
The drive point is cut at a 45 degree angle for easy penetration through the soil. An adjustable stainless steel connector can be provided to allow easy attachment of the anode to coated steel risers and service lines. Depending upon soil conditions, the life expectancy of the "Husky" ranges from 7 to 10 years.
