What is CP?

Cathodic protection (CP) is a technique to control the corrosion of metal. Cathodic protection systems are most commonly used to protect structures such as pipelines, storage tanks, steel piles, offshore oil platforms, and reinforcing steel in concrete.

The simplest method of cathodic protection is galvanic protection where a metal of different electrochemical potential is used as a "sacrificial" anode.

For larger structures, galvanic anodes cannot deliver enough current to provide complete protection. Impressed current cathodic protection systems use a DC power source to achieve this protection.

Reduce CP Operating Costs

These DC power sources require regular monitoring and adjustment to ensure that they are providing the necessary protection. This ongoing monitoring includes regular specialised testing overseen by a cathodic protection consultant.

Where the structure being protected is remote, regular site visits by experts becomes costly.

Omniflex are experts in remote monitoring and control. With years of experience operating in the harshest of environments, we have applied this technology to provide a reliable solution for remotely monitored and controlled Cathodic Protection systems that lowers ongoing monitoring costs.
