Protection of insulating flanges, cathodic protection systems (cathodic corrosion protection) and control rooms
Chemical and petrochemical systems, such as refineries or oil, gas and product pipelines, are important parts of the infrastructure of regions or entire countries. Because they are so crucial to day to day operations, it is important for them to be reliable. These systems depend heavily on electrical and electronic equipment, which can be affected by lightning strikes and other transient currents. While it is expensive to protect these systems from lightning and surges due to their sheer size, the cost is worth it in relation to the downtime and production standstill that can result from lightning-related surge damage.
