CORROSION CONTROL

Corrosion is not only a safety threat, it also undermines the structural integrity of water and sewage treatment plants, storage tanks, pipelines, transit systems, ship hulls, oil rigs, bridges, power plants, and other structures critical to our nation’s economy and security. Cathodic protection (CP), the most successful method used to protect against corrosion, is a process in which UTRS has in-depth expertise and wide-ranging experience. We design, assess, test, install and teach cathodic protection.
