Franklin Electric Co., Inc. announced they now offer a cast iron sacrificial anode kit that provides added protection against corrosion of 4-inch Franklin Electric submersible motors. It bolts directly to the bottom of the motor with just three screws and has a smaller diameter, making it an ideal option for both new and retrofit installations. With the metal-to-metal contact, this low-grade cast iron anode acts as a conductor for corrosion, increasing overall motor and water system life. The motor remains unchanged and contractor inventory management continues status quo. As a lower cost alternative to 316 stainless steel motor constructions, the sacrificial anode kit can cost-effectively be used as a precautionary measure to prevent premature motor failure in highly corrosive applications – especially those with brackish water, high chlorides or high temperatures.
According to the company, the sacrificial anode kit is the only anode designed and manufactured by a motor manufacturer, and is specifically constructed for Franklin Electric submersible motors to maximize compatibility and water system performance.
Franklin Electric offers an array of systems and components for moving water and automotive fuels. It serves residential, commercial, agricultural, industrial and municipal customers around the world.
