Ballast Galvanized Pipe

A ballast galvanized pipe is a hollow metal tube that has been chemically protected by a zinc coating on its surface to prevent corrosion and ensure stability of any vessel it may be attached to. The pipe is used to transfer fluids.

Corrosionpedia explains Ballast Galvanized Pipe

A ballast galvanized pipe is usually made from steel or iron. It should not be incorporated to any part of a wooden vessel, but it should be structurally independent. The use of ballast galvanized pipe reduces overall structural weight, installation time and costs due to corrosion.
