Since the inception of the company, WBI Energy Corrosion Services has installed thousands of cathodic protection systems on a wide variety of aboveground and belowground structures throughout the region in a safe and cost-effective manner.
At- and Below-Grade Storage Tanks
Corrosion Services has designed and installed cathodic protection systems for at- and below-grade storage tanks for scores of facilities located throughout the region. These tanks have demonstrated satisfactory levels of performance even under the harshest conditions. Using the Corrosion Services systems, the useful life of the tank can be extended for more than 50 years.
Some pipelines are government mandated to have cathodic protection as a method of corrosion control. Corrosion Services personnel have designed, installed and maintained pipeline protection systems throughout the region since the early 1980s. Through this practical experience, many different conditions have been encountered and a variety of different cathodic protection installation methods have been utilized.
Well Casing Systems
Corrosion Services technicians have installed literally thousands of cathodic protection systems for well casings on crude oil and natural gas wells, using either conventional AC power or solar power technology.
Municipal Water Supply Systems
Water is a valuable commodity. Corrosion Services personnel have designed and installed cathodic protection systems for water and wastewater systems throughout the region.
Process Plant Cathodic Protection
Corrosion failures can lead to product losses, liability issues and expensive downtime at chemical plants, electric power stations, refineries, and compression facilities. Corrosion Services personnel have been involved in cathodic protection at these types of facilities for the last two decades and have the safety training allowing them to work in these locations.
