Tankhouse Industries cc is a South African based manufacturer and supplier of edge strip systems and related insulation products for use in the copper and cobalt electro-winning industries.

Our products are made from high grade raw materials and are subject to continuous rigorous quality checks. We also have a history of continual research and development of both existing and new products.

ANODE COMPONENTS

All of our anode insulator products are injection moulded from polypropylene which is proven to be the material of choice in electro-winning cells.

ANODE INSULATOR BUTTONS

Insulator buttons are supplied in two halves and screw together through holes in the anode and maintain an effective spacing between the anode and cathode in the electro-winning cell.  Two types are available, full cone (top) or “star” type (middle).  Both types are suitable for 6mm and 9mm thick anodes.  The “star” type has been shown to reduce the “shadow” effect on the copper cathode opposite the insulator button and thus gives a better end product.

ANODE INSULATOR BUTTONS STAR

Insulator buttons are supplied in two halves and screw together through holes in the anode and maintain an effective spacing between the anode and cathode in the electro-winning cell.  Two types are available, full cone (top) or “star” type (middle).  Both types are suitable for 6mm and 9mm thick anodes.  The “star” type has been shown to reduce the “shadow” effect on the copper cathode opposite the insulator button and thus gives a better end product.

DIAMOND TYPE ANODE SIDE SPACER

As the name implies these are fixed to the side of an anode and act as both as guides for the cathode side edge strips during stripping and loading and also help to maintain correct spacing between anodes and cathodes.  They are available to fit 9mm (black) or 6mm (orange) anodes and are supplied complete with re-useable drive type fixing pins.

ANODE BOTTOM LOCATORS

Bottom locators are fitted to the bottom of the anodes and prevent the anodes from moving during load/unloading of cathodes.  They are so shaped as to also locate the bottom of the cathode thus maintaining the correct spacing of anodes and cathodes while minimizing the possibility of shorting in the cells. They are available to fit 9mm or 6mm anodes and are supplied complete with re-useable drive type fixing pins.
