10. Cathodic and Anodic Protection

The sacrificial metal then corrodes instead of the protected metal. For structures such as long pipelines , where passive galvanic cathodic protection is not adequate, an external DC electrical power source is used to provide sufficient current. Cathodic protection systems protect a wide range of metallic structures in various environments. Common applications are: steel water or fuel pipelines and steel storage tanks such as home water heaters ; steel pier piles ; ship and boat hulls; offshore oil platforms and onshore oil well casings; offshore wind farm foundations and metal reinforcement bars in concrete buildings and structures. Another common application is in galvanized steel , in which a sacrificial coating of zinc on steel parts protects them from rust. Cathodic protection can, in some cases, prevent stress corrosion cracking.

Anodic protection AP is a technique to control the corrosion of a metal surface by making it the anode of an electrochemical cell and controlling the electrode potential in an zone where the metal is passive. Anodic protection is used to protect metals that exhibit passivation in environments whereby the current density in the freely corroding state is significantly higher than the current density in the passive state over a wide range of potentials. Anodic protection is used for carbon steel storage tanks containing extreme pH environments including concentrated sulfuric acid and 50 percent caustic soda where cathodic protection is not suitable due to very high current requirements. An anodic protection system includes an external power supply connected to auxiliary cathodes and controlled by a feedback signal from one or more reference electrodes.

Zinc-plating of steel has been used for over years and is also a type of cathod- ic protection, as in most environments the coating acts as a sacrificial anode in.

This article presents a brief history and the uses of the anodic protection technique. It compares anodic and cathodic protection and describes the design considerations of the anodic protection system. The article discusses the specific requirements of equipment required for anodic protection. It also explains the applications and economic aspects of anodic protection, with examples. Carl E.

Platinum Metals Rev. The technique of cathodic protection is well known and has been widely applied to a number of corrosion problems. It is not so well known that corrosion can also be prevented in suitable cases by anodic protection, using a platinum electrode system. The author shows that, with adequate laboratory work beforehand and proper instrumentation, the use of anodic protection can make an effective contribution to the life of a chemical plant. It is well known that corrosion can sometimes be controlled by cathodic currents and, even with an elementary knowledge of electrochemistry, it is easy to appreciate why this should be so.

Anodic protection

Polarization curves provide the basic information for derivation and study of anodic protection. Methods are surveyed for the measurement of polarization curves, one of them based on slow continuous or stepwise change of the applied potential under constant electrochemical conditions. The other method, applicable also to variable conditions, derives polarization curves from multipoint current-density-time curves. The analysis of polarization curves and of their components is discussed with respect to pure metals and alloys. In the survey of anodic protection of alkaline pulping digesters the effect of polysulfides as depolarizers and of reducing reagents is explained. In many other applications of anodic protection the absence of reducing reagents demands the application of a potentiostat to prevent a shift to the transpassive range.

Cathodic protection converts all anodic areas on a metal surface to cathodes so that corrosion ceases. The protected metal has positive current flowing onto it from.
