The goal of this compilation is to educate the reader through experiences and observations from real-world applications and to provide tools for the identification and remediation of pipeline corrosion issues before failure. Pipelines have been used to transport fuels since the 19th century. While there is no clear consensus of the total number of pipeline miles in use throughout the world, most agree that the U.S. has over 2.5 million mi of energy pipelines. This book provide tools for the identification and remediation of pipeline corrosion issues before failure.

NEW EDITION! This book provides an extensive update on the second edition with general coverage of the wide field of corrosion control. It is designed to help readers being initiated into corrosion work and presents each corrosion process or control procedure in the most basic terms. Since the first edition was published in 1970, there have been major advances and changes in the technologies used to combat corrosion damage. Third Edition. NACE, 2018.
This report assesses (1) the rate of corrosion of bare steel with and without cathodic protection, and (2) the effectiveness of various commercially avail able coating systems in preventing corrosion of steel piles in seawater. Eighteen coatings and four sacrificial anodes were tested on 24 sets (three piles per set) of ASTM A 36 or ASTM 690 steel H-piles exposed for 5 years at Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts. Performance ratings were established for the following coatings: organic, organic over metal-filled, organic over metal filled with cathodic protection, metallic organic over metallic, and organic with cathodic protection. It is concluded that sacrificial anodes of zinc and aluminum effectively reduced the corrosion rate of bare carbon steel (ASTM 36) piles in the immersed zone from 0.076-0.102 mm/yr (3-4 mils/yr) to zero, and the coating performing best was coal tar epoxy over zinc-rich primer.
