Pipe corrosion can be most damaging to industrial property. Corrosion problems have been increasing in frequency and severity over the past three decades, reducing the pipe system’s life expectancy down to only a few years. In the United States alone corrosion costs the industry more than a billion dollars a year. Cathodic protection helps against corrosion. As a non-conductive barrier you can use a dielectric isolation kit.
