New Franklin Electric Sacrificial Anode Kit Provides Cost-Effective Alternative In Highly Corrosive Applications


FORT WAYNE, Ind., Aug. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Franklin Electric Co., Inc. (NASDAQ:FELE) now offers the cast iron Sacrificial Anode Kit to provide added protection against corrosion of four-inch Franklin Electric submersible motors. It bolts directly to the bottom of the motor with just three screws and has a smaller diameter, making it an ideal option for both new and retrofit installations. With the metal-to-metal contact, this low-grade cast iron anode acts as a conductor for corrosion, increasing overall motor and water system life. The motor remains unchanged and contractor inventory management continues status quo. As a lower cost alternative to 316 stainless steel motor constructions, the Sacrificial Anode Kit can cost effectively be used as a precautionary measure to prevent premature motor failure in highly corrosive applications – especially those with brackish water, high chlorides, or high temperatures.
