Cathodic Protection

Cathodic Protection is an active protection method helping to prevent pipe corrosion and degradation.

As a buried pipeline is subject to corrosive attacks if it is in contact with wet environments, cathodic protection is used to provide supplementary protection.

Cathodic protection is fundamental to preserving a pipelines integrity and prolonging the service life of the pipe. Cathodic is a method of corrosion control that is achieved by supplying an external direct current that neutralises the natural corrosion current arising on the pipeline.

Cathodic protection can in some cases prevent stress corrosion cracking

Waterworx can provide turnkey installations on all Cathodic protection systems for pipelines and assets.
