WHAT DOES SACRIFICIAL ANODE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

sacrificial anode

Galvanic anode

A galvanic anode is the main component of a galvanic cathodic protection system used to protect buried or submerged metal structures from corrosion. They are made from a metal alloy with a more "active" voltage than the metal of the structure. The difference in potential between the two metals means that the galvanic anode corrodes, so that the anode material is consumed in preference to the structure. The loss of the anode material gives rise to the alternative name of sacrificial anode.

Definition of sacrificial anode in the English dictionary

The definition of sacrificial anode in the dictionary is an electropositive metal, such as zinc, that protects a more important electronegative part by corroding when attacked by electrolytic action.
