How To Install Cathodic Protection System
Cathodic Protection Installation - Blue Sky Construction. Blue Sky Construction routinely works on cathodic protection facilities such as deep wells, conventional ground beds, and anode flex installations.
In 2. 01. 1 and 2. Blue Sky installed 2. The deep well installations, on average, take 6 days to complete the deep well, the anode installation, the coke slurry back fill, and the well cap.
To ensure that the well is not left open for long, our crews are on site for the entire process and ensure that as soon as the well is completed, the anodes are dropped down by the well rig the moment the bit is out of the ground. This prevents the risk of having to re- complete the well at a later date which often happens to other contractors who try to reduce their costs through drilling a bunch of wells and then moving in with the crews to install the anodes later, and thus, in many cases, cause issues due to the wells caving in. Our personnel on site have had extensive training in FERC Upland and Wetland Plan and Procedure which ensures that all drilling mud, and other material utilized in the drilling process, are kept contained on the site and filtered or disposed of properly, and all access to the sites are maintained and restored adequately.
Piping & Corrosion Specialties, Inc. Cathodic Protection and Corrosion Mitigation Systems. Cathodic protection (CP) is a technique to control the corrosion of a metal surface by making it work as a cathode of an electrochemical cell. This is achieved by placing in contact with the metal to be protected another more easily corroded metal to act as the anode of the electrochemical cell. Cathodic protection systems are most commonly used to protect steel, water or fuel pipelines and storage tanks, steel pier piles, ships, offshore oil platforms and onshore oil well casings.
Cathodic protection can be, in some cases, an effective method of preventing stress corrosion cracking. History. Cathodic protection was first described by Sir Humphry Davy in a series of papers presented to the Royal Society in London in 1. After a series of tests, the first application was to the HMS Samarang in 1. Sacrificial anodes made from iron were attached to the copper sheath of the hull below the waterline and dramatically reduced the corrosion rate of the copper. However, a side effect of the CP was to increase marine growth. Copper, when corroding, releases copper ions which have an anti- fouling effect.
Since excess marine growth affected the performance of the ship, the Royal Navy decided that it was better to allow the copper to corrode and have the benefit of reduced marine growth, so CP was not used further. Types. Galvanic CPToday, galvanic or sacrificial anodes are made in various shapes using alloys of zinc, magnesium and aluminium. The electrochemical potential, current capacity and consumption rate of these alloys are superior for CP to iron. Polyaniline may also be effective in improving the efficiency of these materials or can be used alone. Galvanic anodes are designed and selected to have a more "active" voltage (technically a less negative electrochemical potential) than the metal of the structure (typically steel). For effective CP, the potential of the steel surface is polarized (pushed) more negative until the surface has a uniform potential. At that stage, the driving force for the corrosion reaction is halted.
The galvanic anode continues to corrode, consuming the anode material until eventually it must be replaced. The polarization is caused by the electron flow from the anode to the cathode.
The driving force for the CP current flow is the difference in electrochemical potential between the anode and the cathode. Sacrificial anode systems depend on the differences in corrosion potential that are established by the corrosion reactions that occur on different metals or alloys. For example, the natural corrosion potential of iron is about - 0. The natural corrosion potential of zinc in seawater is about - 1. Thus if the two metals are electrically connected, the corrosion of the zinc becomes a source of negative charge which prevents corrosion of the iron.
The materials used for sacrificial anodes are either relatively pure active metals, such as zinc or magnesium, or are magnesium or aluminum alloys that have been specifically developed for use as sacrificial anodes. In applications where the anodes are buried, a special backfill material surrounds the anode in order to insure that the anode will produce the desired output. Sacrificial anodes are normally supplied with either lead wires or cast- m straps to facilitate their connection to the structure being protected.
The lead wires may be attached to the structure by welding or mechanical connections. These should have a low resistance and should be insulated to prevent increased resistance or damage due to corrosion. When anodes with cast- in straps are used, the straps can either be welded directly to the structure or the straps can be used as locations for attachment.
A low resistance mechanically adequate attachment is required for good protection and resistance to mechanical damage.
