Much of our steel’s infrastructure today is in danger from a highly destructive and rather persistent agent called – corrosion. You already know the effects that corrosion can cause if you’re the owner of a marine facility. In fact, if your facility isn’t properly protected it’s decaying right now. The actual rate of corrosion regarding clean, bare steel is at least 5 mils per year. This significant loss in overall thickness can also potentially be enhanced by a variety of elements including water composition, water velocity, and oxygenated cells generally associated with marine growth and development.
Many marine owners have a common misconception that steel-coated mechanisms that are submerged in water don’t require cathodic protection...Read More
