Corrosion is one of the most important problems encountered by the owners, shareholders, and operators of underground, offshore, submerged and other metallic structures exposed to an electrolyte.
If corrosion is NOT controlled, it can lead to large costs in repairs or facility replacement. Even greater costs can be incurred from environmental damage, injuries and fatalities.
- AMPP (formerly NACE International)
When metal is in contact with moisture an electrochemical reaction occurs leading to metal loss, we call it rust. Rust, or corrosion, costs the U.S. approximately $2.5 trillion dollars, or more than 3% of the global Gross Domestic Product. But corrosion control practices can limit damage – saving 375 to 875 billion dollars a year.
Products and Services
Corrosion of well casings is a serious concern. When well casings are exposed to surrounding soil, electrochemical cells form which leads to active corrosion sites and eventually to penetration of the external casing, leading to expensive repairs, environmental damages and production downtime...

We are available to travel throughout Western Canada (MB, SK, AB & BC) to meet your corrosion needs... Read More
For example, if a steel bulkhead were discharging 875 mA over a period of four years, the below calculation will calculate the amount of metal that will be lost. With Faraday’s Law/Formula & Appalachian Underground Corrosion Charts, we can calculate this equation.
9.1kg/A-yr x 0.875A x 4 years = 31.9kg = 70.3 lb of lost steel
70.3lbs of steel will be corroded over a four year period. High levels of this corrosion will be most critical in pitted or imperfected areas of the steel.
