Fault location

Cathodic protection systems may have faults which only become apparent after system implementation. Such faults can substantially reduce the efficiency of a CP system. They may be caused by faulty insulating joints, contact with other metallic structures such as foreign pipelines, cables, sheet piling, reinforced concrete structures, casings, etc., or they may be the result of the presence of other insulating valves and expansion joints. It is not always easy to determine the location of such faults. However, our experienced personnel can offer a range of tried and tested methods to localise and eradicate such problems quickly and effectively.
