[Live Webinar] Inspection and Testing for Cathodic Protection Systems
Intended Audience: Civil, Electrical & Mechanical Engineers
Credits: 2 PDH Units
When: Tuesday 10/4. 2 – 4 pm EST
This discussion includes criteria and inspection actions that, when used either separately or in combination, will indicate whether adequate cathodic protection of a metallic piping system has been achieved. The effectiveness of cathodic protection or other corrosion control measures can be affirmed by visual observation, measurements of pipe wall thickness, or by use of internal inspection devices. Because such methods sometimes are not practical, meeting any criterion or combination of criteria in this chapter is evidence that adequate cathodic protection has been achieved. When excavations are made for any purpose, the pipe should be inspected for evidence of corrosion and/or coating condition. Apply sound engineering practices to determine the methods and frequency of testing required to satisfy these criteria. The criteria in this discussion have been developed through laboratory experiments and/or verified by evaluating data obtained from successfully operated cathodic protection systems. Situations may exist where a single criterion for evaluating the effectiveness of cathodic protection may not be satisfactory for all
