AWWA-20690 Corrosion Control for Buried Water Mains
Small enough to carry in a shirt pocket, Corrosion
Control for Buried Water Mains Pocket Field Guide gives distribution
operators and engineers all the information needed in the field for protecting
water mains from both exterior and interior corrosion. This handy pocket
guide describes the soil types, environmental conditions, and electrochemical
processes that cause external corrosion of metal pipes, as well as how to
protect pipe with coatings, polyethylene wraps, electric current (cathodic
protection), and good installation practices. The guide also describes the
causes of internal pipe corrosion and protective measures, such as linings,
water treatment chemistry, and good installation practices.
Low cost means each member of your pipe installation crew can have a copy.
