Cathodic protection is a critical component in preventing corrosion and metal loss in pipelines and crude oil storage tanks. Cathodic Protection Solutions LLC uses a complex network of rectifiers and buried anodes to provide a specific voltage covering the metal surface of the pipeline to prevent corrosion. The network of cathodic protection components is monitored using test points, rectifiers and are inspected Bi-monthly and annually for proper operation. Regular inspections reduce exposure time to failed conditions, corrosion, and unrecoverable metal loss in the pipeline.
