Electrical Interference Mitigation

Electrical Interference Mitigation - Working to ensure the safety of pipeline infrastructure in shared corridors

It is no secret that finding space to construct the new pipeline infrastructure needed to meet today’s growing energy demand is becoming increasingly difficult. That is why existing High Voltage Overhead Power Line corridors are attractive options for shared right of ways. However, pipelines buried in close proximity to power lines have the potential to pick-up AC current causing a potential shock hazard and raising the risk of AC corrosion. For DC power lines the pipelines may be subjected to unwanted DC interference.

Corrosion Service specializes in understanding electrical interference on pipelines, and in conjunction with the most advanced modeling software, is capable of providing industry leading DC or AC mitigation system designs that improve safety and reduce the risk of AC Corrosion, mitigate safety risks and for DC eliminate harmful interference. Protecting your assets for year to come.

Our team and the services that we offer

All pipeline systems installed in close proximity to High Voltage Power Lines are different, and whether the project is new build, rehabilitation or routine maintenance, our talented team of industry professionals is empowered to understand the unique characteristics of every enquiry. This is important because as an organization, Corrosion Service strives to provide the extremely high level of support and partnership to provide the customized solutions that our clients require on a daily basis.

The Corrosion Service Technical Library that Documents our Past and Defines our Future

Corrosion Service has and remains a leader in the corrosion control industry, supporting the various industries in North American and around the World, ensuring asset integrity by providing responsible engineering services. As part of our continued commitment we would like to welcome you to our electronic Library as the place to view our various technical paper written and presented over the past 69+ years that have supported the corrosion industry advancement.

To document our past and our ongoing commitment to continued research and learning, we converted a prime corner office into a Library in our Head Office. This Library is named after Sorin Segal for his commitment to Corrosion Service and the numerous papers presented, the engineering mentoring he contributed inhouse and to our industry. We would be pleased for you to come and view his comprehensive library that includes various text books, relevant publications, all NACE Materials Performance magazines presented since first publication, technical bulletins and various other related corrosion related material.

Since our founding in 1950, we have built an extensive portfolio of specialist products for the corrosion prevention industry.

Our materials supply team has access to a full-range of DC and AC mitigation materials both manufactured in-house and sourced from partner suppliers. Our dedicated supply chain team is based in Toronto alongside our material distribution hub, which is capable of delivering materials throughout the world on short notice.
