The X-SERIES | Anodes for Extreme Environments

May 19, 2022

Galvashield® X-Series Anodes are designed to achieve 20+ year service life in Xtreme environments


Vector Corrosion Technologies’ Galvashield XP & CC anode standard spacings are designed to achieve a minimum 20-year anode service life in average annual temperatures of 10-15°C (50-60°F). Every 10-15°C (18 to 27°F) increase in temperature causes a natural increase in the current delivered by a galvanic anode which will reduce the anode service life.


Vector’s new X-series anodes strike the right balance of anode service area and zinc mass to allow the anodes to meet demanding 20-year anode service life requirements in average temperatures greater than 15°C (60°F).

If the average annual temperature of an environment exceeds 15°C (60°F), specify Galvashield® XPX & Galvashield® CCX.
