Corrosion is considered to be one of the most common problems found in industries all over the world.
There are a lot of ways for maintaining or even eliminating corrosion with the help of several anti-corrosion inspection protocols that most industries today follow. Corrosion is a very big issue that is why people must be aware of what inspections should properly be made for situations like these.
Guidelines are being implemented in order to provide effect control of potential corrosion of steel structures which are being used for ships, oil tanks and cargo tanks to ensure prolonged service life, and to reduce any possible failures which may result from corrosion.
Anti-Corrosive Design Inspection
- Check and report any unusual activity regarding the steel structural anti-corrosive design of each unit.
Anti-Corrosive Construction Inspection
- Check, report the right placements and construction of each units to ensure that the anti-corrosion materials have been properly placed.
Anti-Corrosive Coating Inspection
- Structures being used in ships as well as offshore installations are given a selected coating protection of paint which is suitable for ocean corrosive environments. It is important to Check, report and inspect the types of anti-corrosive paints that have been used for the steel structural designs of the units.
Cathodic Protective Inspection
- Due to the hazardous and corrosive nature of oils due to the various acids and fumes it carries, cathodic protection is one of the most important inspection protocols. Inspections are performed to ensure that devices like the sacrificial anode, potentiostat, reference electrode and auxiliary electrode are approved to ensure product reliability and functionality.
