Titanium Substrate Insoluble Anode (TSIA)

1. New generation anodes for chlor-alkali industry. 2. Special features: a. High mechanical strength and dimensional stability. b. 10-15% energy savings. c. ability to operate at higher current densities. I. The technology has been licensed to and commercialised by three parties. II. Caustic soda production all over India is carried over by using the TSIA anodes developed by CECRI. Total 1989 tonnage of caustic soda productioin is by using the TSIA Anodes developed by CECRI. Development of the technology in India helped break world monopoly of single firm. Averted import of technology into the country.
