Process and Power Industries
Savcor provides electrochemical corrosion prevention systems for wide variety of applications in process and power industry. These include cathodic prevention for pipelines, cooling water intakes, tanks and reactors.
Anodic protection can be utilized in sulphuric acid tanks and heat exchangers. The advanced system and our know-how of different types of electrodes ensures the maximum protection also in the extreme industrial process conditions.
Cathodic protection for cooling water facilities
Savcor cathodic protection has been successfully applied to concrete cooling water tunnels with all the bar screens, rotating screens and immersed metallic structures included, intake piping and heat exchangers and even some pump propeller housings.
When operating with sea water system, coating is not enough for corrosion control. Using stainless steels can promote corrosion of adjacent mild steel structures. All these issues can be handled by correctly designed cathodic protection system.
Cathodic protection for chemical tanks and buried steel
Savcor cathodic protection has saved many stainless steel chemical tanks when the change in process conditions has initiated pitting corrosion. The advanced control system and our know-how of different types of electrodes ensures the maximum protection also in the extreme industrial process conditions. Underground oil, gas and water lines as well as large storage tank bottoms have benefited from Savcor cathodic protection that stops the corrosion at coating defects.
Anodic protection for suphuric acid tanks and heat exchangers
Savcor anodic protection works well in sulphuric acid environment. We have tank protection systems that have performed flawlessly over 20 years. Even very high-purity acid requirement can be met with carbon steel tank equipped with anodic protection which prevents iron dissolution contaminating the acid. The key in successful anodic protection is to accurately measure and control the vessel potential; both tasks expertly conducted by Savcor control system.
