Selected Examples of Anodic Protection

Among major decisions to be made in establishing the design and materials parameters of equipment that will be exposed to corrosive solutions is the choice of a material. For some materials sufficient data based on experience is available to permit unequivocal approval of one or more candidates. Thus the materials engineer must weigh the availability, design, and fabrication aspects of alternates concurrently with an economic analysis. Frequently these decisions are further complicated by consideration of the possibility that one or more of the candidates is amenable to electrochemical protection, or that their attributes with respect to inhibitors need also be taken into account. Many of these considerations are discussed elsewhere herein.
