  • Custom Anodes

CAID Cathodes are No. 1 in electrical efficiency and reparability with over 1.5 Million in service worldwide.

Superior Cathode design

Solid copper bar design with dissimilar metal weld means the highest current efficiencies are attainable. As current densities are pushed to the maximum, conductivity of the bar at higher temperatures can become an issue. Solid ETP copper bars maintain their low resistance over a wide range of temperatures, therefore handling the higher amperages without overheating. The CAID Cathode design with solid copper hanger bar is the most easily repaired cathode on the market. Sheets and bars can be taken apart and handled separately affording complete leveling and resurfacing of the sheet prior to re-assembly. Continued improvement and weld process advances at CAID have resulted in the next generation of ‘solid copper bar, Cu TIG welded stainless steel cathodes’.
The I-TACC-XL (improved CAID cathode extended life) shows marked improvements in life cycle performance, while maintaining the efficiency and reparability features which the CAID cathode is known for.
