Corrosion and Cathodic Protection Problems

Date: October 15, 2013 at 17:26 GMT

Abstract: We want to make known natural and artificial proceedings in which metallic structures return to their stable current condition. Considering corrosion as a phenomenon, undesirable in this particular case, we will avoid all exposures of any metallic surface to any stray current (electrical currents, magnetic, thermical, amongst other human factors), because they can speed up and cause a corrosion process. Using the adequate instruments, corrosion can be detected long before causing damages to a structure. Join the active corrosion cell or mitigate it, in its premises, using an adequate Cathodic Protection System. Nowadays, with the technological advances, a Cathodic Protection System can be real time monitorized, from every place in the world, assuring a complete effectiveness.

A Cathodic Protection System can be as complex and automated as desired, it is the case of Impressed Current Cathodic Protection System. On the other hand, Cathodic Protection Systems made of galvanic anodes, designed and supplied by ZINETI, S.A. assure versatility in its design, set-up and maintenance. This versatility has been tested through years in several areas of naval industry, more lately in marking buoys, propelling force generation, etc.
