Why Cathodic Protection?
Cathodic Protection (CP) is one of the most effective methods for mitigating corrosion of steel structures in soil and water. The theory and application of impressed current cathodic protection is well established, widely used and has been in existence for more than a century.
The Pipeline Safety Act of 1972 made the application of cathodic protection on pipelines transporting hazardous material mandatory. Natural gas and oil companies have been using impressed current cathodic protection for economic, as well as safety reasons since the 1930’s. The EPA has set deadlines for mandatory cathodic protection of all new steel underground fuel storage tanks and existing tanks.
State and City ordinances throughout the nation require impressed current cathodic protection for many structures. These regulations are intended to protect the environment. However, an effective cathodic protection system will also protect your investment as well as reduce or eliminate repair, clean-up and replacement costs.
