Is there a quick and dirty way to predict anode consumption rate after a change in materials? I have a 90/10 copper nickel heat exchanger in salt water. It's currently consuming 100 lbs of zinc in 12-14 months. I need to extend the anode life to 24 months. I was considering switching to Swedish iron anodes of roughly the same dimensions.
