51316-7186-Corrosion Control Of On-Grade Petroleum Products Storage Tank Bottoms Using Impressed Current Cathodic Protection System with Continuous Anode Bed

 An effective and efficient impressed cathodic protection system by laying a continuous shallow anodes bed in close proximity to the tank foundation. Some of the merits of this installation include elimination of shielding effects or interference from other structures and uniform protection of the entire tank bottom.

Corrosion control of on-grade petroleum products storage tank bottoms is a statutory requirement for Oil and Gas Operators worldwide. Tank bottoms are susceptible to corrosion attacks due to their direct contact with soil, moisture and other corrosive elements within the tank foundation. When such failures occur, the consequences are enormous including serious environmental pollution and damages resulting from seepage of petroleum products into the service environment. Cathodic Protection System in addition to good materials selection and coating applications are global industrial practice for corrosion prevention of on-grade tank bottom plates. This paper therefore discusses an effective and efficient impressed cathodic protection system by laying a continuous shallow anodes bed in close proximity to the tank foundation. Some of the merits of this installation include elimination of shielding effects or interference from other structures and uniform protection of the entire tank bottom. The technique will also eliminate the possibilities of under-protection which could lead to localized corrosion failures within the system.

Key words: downloadable, cathodic protection (CP), anodes bed, corrosion, tank foundation, under-protection. Localized corrosion failures
