PIPELINES: International professional competence

The SGK is involved in all aspects of corrosion protection concerning pipelines.

These can be divided into the following main areas:

  • Cathodic corrosion protection
  • pipelines in industrial plants, closed water systems and domestic installations
  • pipelines for water and gas supply

These studies of the SGK can often be usefully complemented by comprehensive laboratory tests:

  • Sampling and analysis of chlorides
  • Material evaluation
  • Current density vs. potential curves
  • Impedance measurements
  • Galvanostatic pulse measurements
  • Determination of pitting corrosion potentials, polarization resistances, critical pitting corrosion temperatures
  • System studies of complete construction parts and different material combinations
