Anode insulators have the basic function of maximising the separation between anode-anode and anode-cathode acting as a submerged capping board.
Due to the simplicity of their design, short circuits are avoided between anode and cathode acting as a submerged capping board.
Furthermore, short circuits are avoided between anode and cathode. The formation of nodules are practically eliminated, as result, harvest rejection rates are reduced in the electrowinning process.
Top guides are inserted from the side and are positioned on either side of the anode lifting window. Top guides assist in positioning the anode blade and a pin is provided to secure the top guide which prevents the top guide from moving out of position during automatic crane operation.
RHOMBO TYPE INSULATORS
Rhombo type insulators are used to maintain interelectrode distance at the legs of anodes.
Buttons assist in maintaining a suitable distance between anode and cathode.
LONG ANODE INSULATORS
The long anode insulator has a double function that allows exact spacing and guides the anodes. The unique design ensures smooth sliding of the anode which minimises damage to the anode. Snap pins are high strength to allow quick instillation.
