PROTECTING COOLING WATER SYSTEMS
An impressed-current cathodic protection system for use in ships' cooling water systems and condensers has been developed by Morgan Barkeley & Co., Ltd. This system makes it possible to use lower-cost materials in cooling water systems and condensers and increase the flow velocity in pipes. An electric current is fed from anodes mounted thru pipe and condenser walls and flows to surrounding areas rendering it cathodic. An automatic control is used to regulate current flow because the current requirements vary with the water velocity and operating conditions.
