In February experts meet again at the forum of the Institute of Pipe Technology (iro). This year’s motto is: “Pipes and cables – lines for a modern infrastructure”. We would like to exchange technical information about this and the latest developments in the field of CP with you.
You will find us on the 2nd floor, V09 (in the area of the staircase at ofener street) – be our guest.
We are already looking forward to stimulating conversations.
Cathodic Protection (CP): life insurance for your facilities.
Valuable metal structures need to be protected. With individually tailored, complete CP solutions from Steffel, you can provide your facility with powerful protection against corrosion. Corrosion occurs when metal structures come into contact with water or soil, in other words, with an electrically conductive environment. With its injection of protective current (DC), CP is the most effective way to combat electrochemical corrosion processes. Talk to us about a “tailor-made” solution for you.
Be on the safe side: a coating test during HDD procedures.
When laying high pressure pipelines using HDD, the pipe’s coating is subjected to severe mechanical stresses, so taking measurements to check for damage to the coating is absolutely essential. Any necessary repairs to the coating once a pipe has been pulled into its final position are extremely time-consuming and expensive. That’s why Steffel in collaboration with EWE Netz and Herrenknecht AG has developed a method which continuously monitors the pipe coating while the pipe is being pulled into the bore hole during a HDD procedure.
Since the technology can be used during a temporary halt in construction to measure the size and position of any damage, the advantage of the procedure is that any unacceptably large coating defects that occur can be acted on immediately.
