Extended Analysis of how you can save time in maintaining your seawater system and equipment.
Factors we have taken into account to calculate the time saved when you use EasyAnode.

MOUNTING AND DISMOUNTING PENCIL ANODES

How do you do it now.

You can only guess when the anode has been depleted. When you take the anode out you can find out that:

-it has been depleted completely completely and your equipment has been unprotected for an unknown period.

-it has not been consumed and it did not need replacement

How do you do it with EasyAnode

You will only have to dismount when it is necessary. And before you loose the galvanic corrosion protection of your equipment.

HEAT EXCHANGERS-INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE

How do you do it now.

Dismounting and accessing to heat exchangers can be very time consuming. The need to change a damaged heat exchanger can involve additional costs to the purchase of the new heat exchanger. 

You will know if you are having premature corrosion and therefore, be able to maintain the galvanic protection.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

You will only have to dismount when it is necessary. And before you loose the galvanic corrosion protection of your equipment.

TIME SPENT GUESSING CORROSION TRENDS

How do you do it now.

Your only reference is the information from the previous anodes. But you should be interested in knowing when the corrosion increases to address it before major damage occurs.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

You can now have access to how much corrosion you are getting in each area or equipment. Trend analysis is now easy and available.

CLEANING OF THREADS

How do you do it now.

When the anode is gone completely, removing the zinc inside the thread is time consuming.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

You will always have the chance to dismount the anode easily before it is depleted.

FINDING SPARES AND SUPPLIERS

How do you do it now.

You have to find different types of anodes from different sources.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

You will receive the pencil anodes of all your seawater system organized and identified in one only case.​ And all in one order.

TIME SPENT DRAINING TANKS TO INSPECT ANODES

How do you do it now.

You can only verify the corrosion of your anodes by visual inspection after opening and cleaning the tanks.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

Write in words how do you reduce the time or resources

CHECKING AND IDENTIFYING PENCIL ANODES

How do you do it now.

Pencil anodes are easily identified and labelled for each equipment. Especially handy when you join a new boat.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

Write in words how do you reduce the time or resources

TIME SPENT GETTING RID OF LEAKS

How do you do it now.

By the time you see a water leak, the corrosion inside your pipes has already gone too far. 

How do you do it with EasyAnode

The Easyanodes will corrode well before the pipe and give you an alarm excess of corrosion.

CHANGES OF CREW

How do you do it now.

When you join a new vessel you do not always have all the information about corrosion that you would like to have. Actually, you might not even have the information of where the anodes are and the history of corrosion. It takes a lot of time to get familiar with all your sea water system.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

With the corrosion indicators and the spreadsheets we provide you will have track of all equipment and anodes aboard. All the information will be readily accessible for a new engineer.

TRAINING OF PERSONNEL AND DELEGATING

How do you do it now.

Each time you change crew or you delegate the maintenance of the sea water system to another person, you take a lot of time to explain how you want them to do it.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

Delegating the inspection of the sea water system is now a very easy task that you can assign to your personnel. All procedures and tools will be available and easy to explain...

GENERAL CONTROL OF CORROSION SEAWATER SYSTEMS

How do you do it now.

Normally, it is very difficult and time consuming to see how corrosion develops in your sea water system including piping and equipment.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

You can now measure and quantify the corrosion and put the means to avoide premature failure of equipment.

INVESTIGATING CAUSES OF CORROSION

How do you do it now.

It is time consuming to find the extent of damages by corrosion and the root source of the corrosion without precise information.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

The corrosion indicators and our procedures will give you factual information of what is happening in your sea water system.

DAMAGE CAUSED BY EARTH LEAKS

How do you do it now.

If you have an earth leak and your anode depletes very fast. By the time you notice, you can get major damage to equipment. When you find out that you have had corrosion damage, you have to dismount and inspect equipment to see if it is damaged.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

Premature corrosion will be spotted by the corrosion indicator and will save your equipment.

You will know before equipment is damaged.

SAVED TIME IN INSPECTION

How do you do it now.

When you have a leak, you do not know the extent of the damage caused by corrosion. And you should inspect to find other weak points before you get another leak.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

The indicator will turn red before failure happens. 

DISMOUNT HEAT EXCHANGER TO LOOK FOR ANODE

How do you do it now.

Very frequently, anodes break inside heat exchangers. If we find out they broke, we should dismount the heat exchanger and remove it before installing anew anode. In some cases, the access is difficult and inspection becomes time consuming.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

The EasyAnodes indicator will turn red before the anode breaks. 

EARLY CORROSION OF ANODES

How do you do it now.

It is normally guessing game to know how long ago was the anode depleted.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

Easyanode will show immediately.

BROKEN ANODES

How do you do it now.

When anodes break they can go in the sea water system.​ They can reduce the performance of equipment and or cause damage. sometimes you will not even know that it broke.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

Easyanodes are designed to give you the alarm before they break.
