Vessels, pipelines, condenser box and tanks which are used to store or transport liquids can also be protected from corrosion on their internal surfaces by the use of cathodic protection.  By passing the DC current through the cantilever which is coated with platinum or MMO (mixed metal oxide) the cathode will be protected and could be monitor by the reference electrodes.

Tiaano supplying anodes as per the customer design and as well as our own design.


A reference electrode must have specific electrical, physical and chemical properties. It must facilitate the measurement of accurate pipe/soil/reference electrode potentials on pipelines. It must ideally have a stability that is sustainable for years. For this to occur it should not be polarized by the very low electrical current that will flow in a measurement circuit. The potential should be measured with a high impedance multi-meter or voltmeter.

Reference electrode allows you to measure the potential of the working electrode without passing current through it while counter (auxiliary) electrode allows you to pass current. If oxidation occurs at the working electrode, reduction using the same magnitude of current is sustained at the counter electrode and hence there is no current flow between working and reference electrode(high input impedance) enabling us to follow changes in working electrode potential accurately. This is not possible in a two electrode system although we can get crude values by using certain types of electrodes which can act simultaneously as working and reference electrode.
