Cathodic Shielding Effects Tested: PipePillo vs. Foam

March 2015, Vol. 242, No. 3

Perhaps one of the most important safe guards put in place to maintain the long-term integrity of buried pipelines is a cathodic protection system. Cathodic protection (CP) is an anti- corrosion technique used to prevent the corrosion of metals such as steel and iron in electrolytically conducting environments such as seawater and soils containing water.

Bolivian Pipeline Company Expands Into Mobile Asset Management

August 2013, Vol. 240 No. 8

Landlocked Bolivia is unique among nations for many reasons, not the least of which is its wide range of terrains, climates and biodiversity, which are in turn a consequence of precipitous altitude changes within the country. From Andean glaciers to Amazonian rain forests, the country is a patchwork of varying elevations, including dozens of active and extinct volcanoes and innumerable rivers.

CP System For Slurry Line With Three-layer Coating In China

October 2012, Vol. 239 No. 10

This case study describes the design and commissioning of an impressed current cathodic protection (CP) system for a 10-inch OD, 106.2-mile welded steel pipeline with a three-layer coating system. It describes the adventures of cross-cultural technical communications, differences in equipment specifications and understanding and conducting the survey in the lush green mountains of southern China in torrential rains and lightning storms.

Advances in Automation for Cathodic Protection Remote Monitoring

March 2012, Vol. 239 No. 3

Cathodic protection has come a long way from its manual beginnings. Operators in industrial markets are seeking the most effective and efficient ways to protect assets and infrastructure from corrosion. Many are finding that automated solutions can provide the reliable, real-time monitoring they seek. New technologies and options are continually being introduced to the marketplace.

Review Of CP Criteria In Five Standards

December 2011, Vol. 238 No. 12

Cathodic potential (CP) criteria are used as a recommended minimum requirement for controlling external corrosion of buried or submerged steel piping systems. Different and sometimes conflicting CP criteria are given in different global CP standards. This can lead to confusion regarding what criterion is best used for a given condition.
