Corrosion Protection

Corrosion protection systems are designed, monitored, and maintained as a cost effective means of preserving and controlling maintenance and replacement costs on underground metallic structures. Select Solutions is highly experienced in the design, installation, and commissioning of cathodic protection systems from sacrificial galvanic anodes to more complex auto-controlled impressed current systems. Correct system selection requires consideration of many factors including type of coatings, presence of stray currents, soil resistivity, proximity to nearby metallic structures, the availability of power supply and the economics of implementing the system. Our corrosion protection services include:

  • Cathodic Protection System design, Installation, Commissioning and Monitoring
  • Protection Level Monitoring / Potential Surveys
  • Corrosion Test Point Installation
  • Electrical/Continuity Fault Finding
  • Coating Defect Surveys (DCVG and Pearson)
  • Electrolysis/Stray Current Testing Services
  • Electrical Surge Protection
