Electrical interference is a threat that accelerates corrosion in buried metallic structures such as pipelines, tanks and vessels. Interference sources include cathodic protection systems, DC traction, HVDC systems and welding machines.
In order to determine the adequacy of a cathodic protection system applied on a certain structure, its polarized potential has to be measured. Here, we discuss the practical techniques that can be used to measure the structure's polarized potential.
Learn about cathodic protection potential measurement, a method used to determine the adequacy of a cathodic protection system by comparing the measured potential with certain criteria.
