Our Iridium tantalum-coated titanium anode offers excellent cost efficiency in various applications. The extended service life and high performance reduce the need for frequent replacements, resulting in cost savings in the long run.
Iridium Tantalum (IrTa) coated titanium anodes represent an advanced electrode material that finds diverse uses across several industrial electrochemical processes. A major application is in water treatment, where IrTa-coated titanium acts as a dimensionally stable anode for processes like electro-oxidation and electrochemical disinfection of municipal wastewater and industrial effluents. The IrTa coating provides excellent corrosion resistance in harsh environments containing chlorides and other contaminants, allowing sustainable operation. It also exhibits outstanding electrocatalytic activity for oxygen evolution from water, generating reactive oxidants to degrade organic pollutants and inactivate disease-causing pathogens. Compared to conventional DSA materials, IrTa demonstrates a longer lifespan and lower energy consumption.
Additionally, the chlor-alkali industry utilizes IrTa-coated titanium extensively in the electrolysis of brine for chlorine and caustic soda production. The electrodes withstand the highly corrosive brine environment while also electrolyzing salt efficiently over prolonged production runs. The dimensional stability of the titanium substrate coupled with the electrocatalytic activity of the IrTa coating enables consistent and reliable performance. Replacing older graphite anodes with IrTa-coated titanium has allowed significant efficiency gains in chlor-alkali plants.
For metal electroplating processes, like chromium plating, IrTa-coated titanium provides inert, non-consumable anodes necessary for uniform metal deposition onto cathodic workpieces. The inert anodes eliminate metal contamination from anode dissolution observed with consumable metal anodes. IrTa’s dimensional stability also ensures precise workpiece plating. Other electroplating applications include nickel, copper, tin, zinc, and precious metals.
In the electrochemical synthesis of organic compounds and specialty chemicals, IrTa-coated titanium serves as a reliable high-performance anode. It withstands aggressive organic intermediates/reagents while facilitating selective electrochemical oxidation reactions at its surface. Key examples include electrochemical fluorination and electrophilic aromatic substitution, producing useful fluorinated and chlorinated aromatic compounds.
Additionally, IrTa-coated titanium is used as an inert auxiliary anode material in cathodic protection systems for corrosion prevention in pipelines, storage tanks, marine structures, and other metal infrastructure. By generating protective current flows, the anodes mitigate external corrosion.
To summarize, Iridium tantalum-coated titanium anodes provide critical functionality across diverse electrochemical processes where corrosion resistance, electrocatalytic performance, and dimensional stability are paramount. Their exemplary attributes enable broad use in vital industries like water treatment, chlor-alkali production, metal plating, organic chemical synthesis, and cathodic protection. Continued improvements in IrTa coating technology and alloy composition will likely expand the application space of this versatile class of dimensionally stable anodes.
