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 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 lose the galvanic corrosion protection of your equipment.

HEAT EXCHANGERS-INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE

How do you do it now.

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

You will know if you are suffering 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 lose 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 is occurring 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 depleted 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 has completely depleted.

FINDING SPARES AND SUPPLIERS

How do you do it now.

You may have to source 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 organised, identified in a tailored storage 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

Now you can verify if anodes are depleted without opening the tanks.

 

CHECKING AND IDENTIFYING PENCIL ANODES

How do you do it now.

Sometimes it is hard to know where all anodes are, especially when you are new to a job or you are in charge of maintaining a fleet.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

Pencil anodes are easily identified and labelled for each equipment, especially handy when you join a new vessel.

TIME SPENT GETTING RID OF LEAKS

How do you do it now.

By the time you spot 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 alert you of excessive 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, you might not even have the information of where the anodes are located and it takes 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 for you will track 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 expend a lot of time explaining 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 within your sea water systems including piping and equipment.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

You can now measure and quantify the corrosion and put take action to avoid 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 within your sea water systems.

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 have incurred major damage to equipment. 

How do you do it with EasyAnode

Premature corrosion will be spotted by the corrosion indicator thus, potentially saving your equipment.

DISMOUNT HEAT EXCHANGER TO LOOK FOR ANODE

How do you do it now.

Very frequently, anodes break inside heat exchangers, if we discover that they are broken, we may have to dismount the heat exchanger and remove it before installing a new 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 long before the anode breaks off

BROKEN ANODES

How do you do it now.

When anodes break, they can go in the seawater system, reducing the performance of equipment and cause damage. You often you will not even know that it has broken off.

How do you do it with EasyAnode

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