Cathodic Protection Monitoring
Definition - What does Cathodic Protection Monitoring mean?
Cathodic protection monitoring is a corrosion prevention method used on buried pipelines. It involves the use of equipment, sensors and alarms to detect changes in pipeline chemical composition or leaks by making the pipeline a cathode of an electrochemical cell.
Corrosionpedia explains Cathodic Protection Monitoring
Cathodic protection monitoring involves regular inspections performed by pipeline operators to perform measurements at rectifiers and cathodic protection test points along a pipeline. Increasingly, automated options using satellites, cell phones or drone systems are used for remote inspections.
