02111 NEW CP CRITERIA FOR ELIMINATION OF THE RISKS OF AC CORROSION AND OVERPROTECTION ON CATHODICALLY PROTECTED PIPELINES

New cathodic protection (CP) criteria were developed based on AC and DC current densities measured using coupons. Using these criteria, the design of CP systems for newly constructed pipelines, paralleling high voltage AC power lines, and  DC rail transit systems, was successfully performed.

The risks of AC corrosion and overprotection are increasing on cathodically protected buried steel pipelines, due to the increased cases of installing pipelines in proximity to high voltage AC power transmission lines and DC/AC powered rail transit systems. Based on field and laboratory studies as well as literature research, new cathodic protection (CP) criteria were developed based on AC and DC current densities measured using coupons, to eliminate those risks. Using these criteria, the design of CP systems for newly constructed pipelines, paralleling overhead high voltage AC power transmission lines, and in the proximity to DC powered rail transit systems, was successfully performed. Corrective measures to eliminate the risk of AC corrosion were taken by the use of distributed magnesium anodes and solid-state DC decoupling devices.

Ethics for the Corrosion Professional (English Version)

Product Number: Ethics eCourse
$99.00

The corrosion profession, and the certified professionals who work in the industry, are committed to protecting people, assets and the environment from the effects of corrosion. Those tasked with delivering the technical expertise to society must conduct their work with the knowledge and understanding of the ethical principles expected and required of those professionals.

The NACE International Code of Ethics is discussed in conjunction with case studies and features real-life ethical violations of the NACE International Institute attestations. Frameworks for making ethical decisions are reviewed in this course along with the factors in the corrosion industry that can lead to unethical behavior.

The course is an online, self-paced course in Spanish which should take no longer than 1.5 to 2 hours to complete.

Learning Objectives

Section 1 | Introduction

  • Recognize the importance of upholding ethical standards across the Corrosion Prevention and Control industry.

Section 2 | Professional Ethics

  • Discuss how the Six Pillars of Character embody the ethical values of a professional.
  • Explain why ethics is important within professional settings.

Section 3 | Factors that Lead to Unethical Decision Making

  • Describe what an unethical decision is.
  • Describe how rationalizations are used to justify unethical decisions in a professional setting.
  • Recognize the factors that can lead an individual to make an unethical decision.

Section 4 | Types of Unethical Behavior
