Backfill


CCE is an approved distributor of the Loresco range of anode backfills, including SC-3 Super-Conducting Premium Earth Contact Backfill. Loresco SC-3 is designed specifically for demanding anode systems which mandate a low resistivity medium.

Correct anode backfill is important because it prevents direct soil contact to reduce localised corrosion of the anode, prevents passivation of the anode caused by reactions with soil salts, provides a low resistivity environment around the anode, and expands when wet to fill the hole and eliminate air voids. This will extend the useful life of anodes. The type of backfill you need will depend on the cathodic protection system that you intend to use it with.

Loresco Backfill for Anodes and Earthing Systems

CCE is an approved distributor of the Loresco range of anode backfills, including Loresco type SC-3 which is a Super-Conducting Premium Earth Contact Backfill. This product is made of modified, blended carbon and features surfactants that are designed to improve conductivity, reduce particle surface tension when settling in water and more.

We recommend Loresco SC-3 for high current groundbed installations and demanding anode systems that mandate a low resistivity medium. This backfill has a fixed carbon density and is excellent value for industrial operations and projects.

Choosing the best anode backfill for your CP system is integral to the operational efficiency and lifecycle of your anodes, which is why we recommend the Loresco line of backfill products when engaging in anode ground bed installations. Correct anode backfill is important because it prevents direct soil contact to reduce localised corrosion of the anode, prevents passivation of the anode caused by reactions with soil salts, provides a low resistivity environment around the anode, and expands when wet to fill the hole and eliminate air voids.The type of backfill you need will depend on the cathodic protection system that you intend to use it with.
