Metallurgical and Inspection Requirements for Offshore Pipeline Bracelet Anodes
|Publication Date:||29 March 2016|
Sets minimum physical quality and inspection standards for cast sacrificial anodes for offshore pipeline applications. The standard is applicable to typical half-shell or segmented bracelet-type anodes and is not intended to apply to platform, hull, tank, or extruded-type anodes. The section on physical requirements includes information on samples for chemical analysis; anode identification, weight, dimensions, and straightness; insert dimensions and position; insert material; fabrication of inserts by welding; insert surface preparation; surface irregularities on the anode casting; cracks in cast anodic materials; defects; and more.
