Types of Pipeline Corrosion Protection Systems

Types of Pipeline Corrosion Protection Systems

Perpetual bombardment from numerous factors is a fact of life when dealing with pipelines. However, this is no reason to accept the corrosion and damage that accumulates over time. Reconstructing or replacing a pipeline can cost millions if not billions of dollars. Instead of resigning to eventual failure, many cutting edge companies are turning to NRI’s pre-impregnated composites to reinforce and protect pipelines and structures.
Every structure and pipeline needs to be evaluated on an individual basis to determine which corrosion protection system is right for the job. The location of the pipeline or structure, the temperatures it is exposed to, the type of corrosion, the substance being transported through the pipeline, and the structure material are all things to consider. For example, it is often forgotten that pipelines are being constantly assaulted from both within and without. Reinforcing the exterior of a pipeline with corrosion protection products can be beneficial, but often the interior is in need of reinforcement, and vice-versa. Different systems are required for above ground and below ground, as well as above water or underwater. These are just a few of the questions that are explored by NRI experts when choosing the best pipeline corrosion protection system for you.
