I have been searching the internet and this forum for information on where to place anodes or how far away they should be spaced but have not had much luck. I am trying to design a sacrificial anode system for the inside of a tank. Does any one have any info to help or send me in the right direction.

Thanks

What fluid or gas is contained in the tank? At what temperature will the contents of the tank be held, or what temperature range will be used? Of what metal or alloy is the tank composed?

The tanks will be holding drilling mud near ambient temperature and they are made of A36 steel, what I am really looking for is somewhere I can find info on how far anodes need to be spaced out and what factors affect spacing,

Thanks for the help
