This week conservators are installing improved impressed current cathodic protection anodes on the Monitor’s gun carriages.  The anodes are flexible wires supported on removable frames made of PVC pipes.  Josiah designed and built the frames which allow the anode wires to protect the metal parts of the gun carriages from corrosion during wet conservation treatment.  The frames are lightweight and easily removable to provide easy access to the carriages during deconcretion.
