CORROSION CONTROL SERVICES
LSC offers comprehensive corrosion control services based out of our Duluth and Minneapolis offices. Our Corrosion Control Team of motivated engineers and NACE-Certified Technicians is committed to accurate data collection, professional client representation, and proficient documentation and report generation. Our corrosion control experience includes applications for submerged metallic pipelines, above-ground and underground storage tanks, compressor and pump stations, lift stations, municipalities, and mining facilities.
Corrosion control is a vital management plan to sustain the integrity of the pipeline and/or structures. We understand that a successful corrosion program typically depends on a combination of control procedures including: proper materials selection for the application, coating, cathodic protection, stray current bonds, dielectric insulation, vigilant construction practices and corrosion inhibitors. Our Coatings and Cathodic Protection Teams evaluate, develop, recommend, and implement these methods.
By successfully implementing a corrosion control plan, we ensure clients can protect, maintain, and monitor their equipment.
