Data and Report from S&T Project 20023: Advancement of Cathodic Protection Monitoring and Control for Water Storage Tanks

This research investigated use of ribbon anodes in a ring configuration as a method of cathodic protection (CP) for water tank interiors. Testing was performed using a laboratory model of a storage tank. The effectiveness of the CP system was determined by measuring polarized potentials and evaluating against NACE criteria for protection. This work also studied the performance of a polysiloxane coating system used in conjunction with the CP system. This record includes final report, and csv data files containing potential measurements, anode current outputs, water conductivity measurements, tank surface checks during construction of the tank and coatings application.
