Galvanic Corrosion Protection Methods

Using various corrosion prevention techniques, Cor-Pro Systems is the leading provider of galvanic corrosion protection methods in Houston.

Corrosion is a natural process that occurs whether we like it or not. This inevitable occurrence is what’s causing companies to spend hundreds of millions of dollars every year.

In totality, the US spends a whopping $1 trillion annually just to fight corrosion and corrosion-related problems. It’s a serious threat to businesses; even more so for those whose operations rely on complex machineries and critical equipment.

Galvanic corrosion protection is an essential part of any anti-corrosion strategic plan of companies whose operations involve the use of critical equipment and installations.

Engineers, designers and equipment manufacturers are very much aware of the problems that arise when galvanic corrosion occurs, but it remains a complex issue that needs to be addressed.

Cor-Pro Systems provide top of the line galvanic corrosion protection methods that include custom-made solutions depending on the specific business needs.

What Is Galvanic Corrosion?

Galvanic corrosion is an electrochemical phenomenon wherein dissimilar metals come into contact with each other.

One metal corrodes at a higher rate (the anode), while the other at a lower rate (the cathode) when placed in an electrically conducting environment.

To illustrate, noble metals like stainless steel can cause galvanic corrosion on less noble metals.

Cor-Pro Systems’s custom corrosion prevention techniques will depend on the causes of the corrosion and can help companies determine this early on so as to delay corrosion and prolong the life of critical equipment.

Galvanic Corrosion Protection Methods

  • Insulation of dissimilar metals
  • Select metals as close as possible in a galvanic series
  • Introduce a sacrificial metal, such as magnesium or zinc, into the structure or assembly
  • In the design of components, consider using replaceable parts to replace corroded parts instead of replacing the entire installation
  • Ensure that the more active metal does not have a smaller area than the less active metal
  • Apply appropriate coatings. Knowledge of materials and metals as well as their compatibility can help control galvanic corrosion

Galvanic corrosion protection methods, if applied correctly, can help mitigate the damaging effects of corrosion, saving companies millions of dollars in repair and replacement.
