Internal cathodic protection anode system with monitoring for tanks and process vessels

TankGard, the only system of its kind, is able to provide reliable CP for up to 10 years.

The TankGard impressed-current tank cathodic protection system was developed by Deepwater in the mid-1980s specifically to address harsh-environment upstream-process tanks and vessels. The systems were pioneered in the San Joaquin Valley oilfields of California, where produced water is hot and sour and systems have a high tendency for scaling and sludging. Deepwater installed several prototype systems to evaluate all combinations of anodes and reference electrodes. The result was a reliable, low-cost system that has a proven 10-year design life.
