Cathodic Protection

Where structures are surrounded by corrosive electrolyte, cathodic protection has a proven track record in mitigating the natural effect of the environment on critical and highly valued structures.

Either by coupling to a more active metal or by impressing a DC current between an inert anode and the structure to be protected, corrosion can be halted for the design life.

Modern electronics have enabled the manufacture of compact, sophisticated and self-regulating systems.

Typical Problem Areas

  • Regulatory requirements for the external protection of oil and gas pipelines
  • Corrosion on submerged piling
  • Corrosion of reinforcement in concrete structures
  • Above and below ground liquid storage tanks
  • Ship hulls
  • Wharf and jetty piling
