Anodic Protection

Cor-Pro Systems Inc. is the leading company in providing fast and high quality anodic corrosion protection in Houston, TX.

Anodic protection is one of the most common forms of corrosion protection. Anodic protection offers extreme corrosion protection in equipments where other methods won’t work because of the harshness of the environment.

Experts commonly apply anodic protection to industries with underground facilities.

In highly industrialized regions like the Gulf Coast, corrosion is a big problem specially in areas where factors such as climate and topography contribute greatly to corrosion. Corrosion protection methods such as anodic protection can prevent both losses and damages due to corrosion.

What Is Anodic Protection?

Anodic protection is a kind of corrosion protection designed to protect metals exposed in highly corrosive environments that are either too acidic or too basic for metals.

Anodic protection uses a layer of protective coating on the surface of the metal, which is commonly known as the substrate.

To create the anodic layer on the surface of the metal, corrosion protection experts apply controlled electric current to charge the protective film with the use of an anode. The current can increase or decrease the thickness of the protective layer through the use of an external power supply.

Anodic Protection Versus Cathodic Protection

Anodic protection differs from cathodic protection in several ways. Among their differences are:

  • Level of protection. Cathodic protection can fend off corrosion in areas such as underwater and underground through the use of a sacrificial cathode. However, even electrically charged cathodes cannot protect metals in extreme environments. Meanwhile, anodic protection, by forming an electrically charged layer on the surface of the metal, can withstand the effects of basic and acidic environments.
  • Method of protection. Cathodic protection uses electrically active alloys that release electric currents to the area, redirecting agents to the said alloy until it completely breaks down. Meanwhile, anodic protection uses anodes to create an electrically charged layer that protects the metal from corrosive processes such as oxidation.

Industries That Will Benefit Greatly From Anodic Protection

Among the industries that will greatly benefit from high-quality anodic protection are:

  • Fabrication
  • Subsea Equipment
  • Energy Services
  • Production
  • Energy Exploration
  • Petrochemical
