Use of Electrochemical protection systems (Cathodic, Papritection® and Anodic) has significantly increased during the last decade. Cathodic protection has been routinely installed on underground structures such as pipelines and storage tanks however, the use of electrochemical protection systems has now gained acceptance to protect the internal surfaces of expensive process vessels. These systems are extremely cost effective but have a common drawback that periodic monitoring and minor maintenance is required.
