Anodic protection systems have been installed in eight hydraulic continuous digesters and one impregnation vessel. Results indicate that corrosion and caustic cracking have been mitigated by the application of anodic protection. Operating characteristics, hardware improvements and digester inspection results are discussed. Potential and coupon monitoring […]

To date the majority of cathodic protection systems utilize either sacrificial anode or impressed current systems relying upon AC to DC rectifiers powered from the conventional electric power grid. In remote locations however, many alternative energy sources have been used with varying degrees of success. […]
