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.

CATHODE COMPONENTS

Copper cathode edge strip – cross slotted

When fitted to stainless steel cathodes in electro-winning plants, cathode edge strips prevent build-up of metal around the edges facilitating the stripping of copper.  Made from high quality, high impact strength PVC these edge strips combine flexibility with strength and durability.  These are supplied cut to length to suit each individual plant.

END CAPS

When fitted to stainless steel cathodes in electro-winning plants, cathode edge strips prevent build-up of metal around the edges facilitating the stripping of copper.  Made from high quality, high impact strength PVC these edge strips combine flexibility with strength and durability.  These are supplied cut to length to suit each individual plant.

EDGE STRIP RETAINERS

 Retainer strips are used to ensure the edge strips remain on the cathode, the pins locate into holes drilled along the sidesof the cathode, and the bottom where bottom strips are used.  The retainer strips then align with the slots in the edge strip during assembly.  The retainers are precision injection moulded and are available in 5 and 6 pin configurations.

TOP PINS

Top pins are used to secure the edge strip to the cathode to prevent the strip from sliding off.  One pin is used per side strip and locates through holes drilled into the top of the edge strip and the cathode.

CORNER BOOTS

When a bottom strip is used corner boots are fitted to both seal and protect the mitred corners.  They are injection moulded from a high grade PVC and retained in place using a commercial grade PVC glue during assembly.

2 PIECE EDGE STRIPS

The two piece hinged edge strip is extruded in polypropylene and clamps securely onto the cathode when the backing rod is fitted.   These are cut to length to suit each individual plant and are ideally suited to Vee groove type cathodes.

COBALT EDGE STRIPS

These edge strips perform the same duty as the copper cathode edge strip. Extruded in polypropylene they are tough and durable and supplied in 1m or 2m lengths or can be cut to suit the requirements of each individual plant.

EDGE STRIP TAPE

Specially developed for the copper industry this self-adhesive tape is used under the cathode edge strip where it provides additional sealing properties as well as effectively insulating the cathode under the edge strip thus minimising copper growth under an edge strip if leakage does occur. We are importers and distributors for Africa.
