There is one factor straightaway that will explain the difference: Apparently all failures of CRA pipelines due to HISC have been related to the welding of anodes to the pipeline causing stress concentrations, susceptible microstructure and defect coating.
A f1003 submarine pipelines are designed with an external coating as the primary system for corrosion control, a cathodic protection CP system is normally installed as a back-up for any deficiencies in the snv coating, including defects induced during coating application, transportation, installation, and operation. Moreover, the potential for damage to the pipeline coating during installation is reduced. Ordinary Al-Zn-In and Zn anode materials may provide protection potentials approaching a negative limit of Calculations of anode current output from such anode arrangements shall take into account the significance of a voltage drop in the cable connection and any interaction between closely spaced anodes affecting their electrolytic resistance i.
Thank dng for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts. For anode specific data, reference shall be made to the unique anode number or batch 6. The minimum anode distance L calculated from eqn.
Such systems have traditionally been designed as self-contained systems with all anodes installed directly on the pipeline itself bracelet type anodes. The constants recommended in Annex 1 are only applicable if the actual coating specifications are in general compliance with the referred DNV RP’s.
Anode chemical composition limits, detailed anode drawing and procedures for the last 2 items are all subject to acceptance by Purchaser. Electrical contact to the pipeline is then to be provided using thermite alumino-thermic welding, brazing or explosion welding.

Can somebody shed more light on this issue, and help me understand why these two codes are so different conceptually? This is due to the relatively high anodic current densities that are utilized for testing. However, it is recommended primarily to avoid such temperatures by application of heat insulation between anode and, pipe wall or by installing anodes freely exposed to seawater whenever practical.
Offshore F013 see 1. If a default anode distance of m is adopted 5. It’s easy to join and it’s free. The potential of this reference electrode is virtually equivalent to that of the standard calomel electrode. Purchaser of anodes should consider the need for verification of the final anode design by the installation contractor prior to casting of anodes. I digged more into the detail, and figured out this wide gap btwn the results is comming from big differences between these codes on the coating breakdown factors.
Are you an Engineering professional? For subsea pipelines in particular, this has f10 the conservatism inherent in CP design which affords two main advantages. The heat input from a thermite or welding process shall be controlled so that excessive heat input is prevented.
Results from remotely operated vehicle ROV inspections of numerous submarine pipelines for lifetime pr projects have shown that the coating is still in good condition after 20 to 30 years in service and the consumption of the galvanic anodes is much lower than assumed in design. For submarine pipelines, galvanic anode systems are most commonly applied.
Inspection of CP systems in operation is addressed in Sec. This RP, however, refers to specific combinations of linepipe and FJC coating and takes into account their relative surface area eqn. By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. Unless otherwise agreed, the report shall be accepted by Purchaser prior to start of production.
It changed relatively recently xnv resulted in a significant decrease of anodes. It is recommended in this RP that if data for Al-Zn-In anodes meeting the compositional requirements in Table 5 of the ISO standard at the applicable temperature and anode current density are not at hand, the data in Table 4 of the ISO standard shall be used, multiplied by a design factor of 0.
For definition of contacting parties and associated terms, see Sec.
Of particular interest are those aspects that require destructive testing and hence cannot be frequently verified during regular production. For anodes to be installed on concrete coated pipes, provisions shall be made to prevent any electrical contact between anodes and the cnv reinforcement to be addressed in IPS. For structures with major areas in bare steel e. As a consequence, seawater parameters affecting oxygen supply e.
