1.5# Magnesium Grounding Anode


Placement and arrangement
Grounding anodes should be installed at all dead ends of the tracer wire system to complete the electrical circuit needed to enhance signal for locating purposes. All dead ends need to be grounded for locating purposes regardless of the tracer wire spec installed. All dead ends not brought to surface will be connected to an anode (or grounding device). When splicing the lead wire to dead end of your tracer wire use the included wire nut to keep corrosion out.

Incorporating Anode into Existing Tracer Wire Systems
This grounding anode may be spliced into existing tracer wire systems to improve signal and ability to locate.

Cathodic Protection of Tracer Wire
Magnesium grounding anodes naturally aid in prolonging the life of your tracer wire system since anodes are “sacrifical” to prevent corrosion. In directional drilling installations, it is common for tracer wire to experience abrasion to the insulation which can sometimes expose the wire under the insulation. When this happens, the anode gives off electrons to over time to prevent corrosion to the exposed tracer wire conductor.
