Troubleshooting, purchase and installation of equipment, troubleshooting and stable commissioning of the cathodic protection system of underground lines of Amirkabir Petrochemical Complex
In general, cathodic protection systems are used to control the corrosion of metal structures (usually steel) buried in soil or in contact with water.
In order to take advantage of cathodic protection systems, the first step is to study the environmental conditions. Environmental conditions determine the choice of the type of cathodic protection system. Determining and selecting the type of cathodic protection system is based on several parameters such as the type of electrolyte (soil, water, seawater), access to AC power and the amount of current intensity required.
The main and pervasive problems in cathodic protection systems of industrial complexes are insufficient attention to the issues of protection current distribution, type and location of anodic substrates, how to establish connections, how to control current waste, etc.
It should be noted that in the field of cathodic protection of underground pipelines of industrial complexes, mere reference to existing standards is not enough and the use of previous experience in similar industries is also required due to significant differences in underground piping and adjacent equipment.
The idea is based on the knowledge and experience of the Corrosion Control Department of Naftan Payesh Company in the field of cathodic protection and has been tested in many industrial complexes and has yielded very good results. This idea has been done or is being done since the launch of the company in a large number of industrial complexes, especially petrochemical complexes, in the form of consulting, design and engineering, supervisory and executive projects, and there is the full satisfaction of esteemed employers in this field.
