Site Surveys I Investigations
TLF cathodic protection specialists are qualified to carry out a variety for site surveys/investigations comprising:
- Soil resistivity surveys, using either the 4-pin Wenner Method or Geonics Electro- Magnetic Techniques
- Potential and line current surveys.
- Close interval potential and DCVG survey.
- Holiday inspection of pipe coatings and cable insulation tests.
- Interference testing on foreign structures
- Current drainage surveys.
- Insulating flange/coupling di-electric tests
- Collection of any other data that may be required for the design and upgrade of C.P system.
In-house design facilities are available for all types of Cathodic Protection Systems onshore and offshore. These may include either conceptual designs or detailed designs, contingent (upon available project information). Design packages usually consist of the following components:
- Design philosophy
- Design criteria
- Basic of design
- Description of the system
