Cathodic protection (CP) is a technique used to control the corrosion of a metal surface by making it the cathode of an electrochemical cell. A simple method of protection connects the metal to be protected to a more easily corroded “sacrificial metal” to act as the anode. Oil and gas pipelines, oil rigs, marine structures and vessels are all at risk of the corrosive conditions of their surroundings.
With clients in the oil, gas, petrochemical, subsea and offshore industries, Heaps, Arnold & Heaps manufacture a range of sacrificial lead and lead alloy anodes used for cathodic protection. Manufactured using extrusion or casting technology, we can produce sacrificial anodes to any profile requested.
