Why You Need Cathodic Protection to Prevent Propane Tank Corrosion

Cathodic Protection

Underground liquid propane tanks have several benefits. They are better protected from fire and free up space in your yard. Despite those advantages, underground propane tanks can still corrode, rust, and leak possibly leading to property damage and injuries.

Cathodic protection (CP) is a corrosion-control method used to protect underground or underwater metallic structures from corrosion. It works by providing an electrical current that flows between the metal structure and an anode, which helps to prevent the metal from corroding.

In this blog post, we will discuss why you need cathodic protection on your liquid propane tanks and how it can help to extend the life of your tank!

Extend the Life of Your Propane Tank

One of the most important benefits of cathodic protection is that it can help to extend the life of your tank. By providing a protective current, CP can help to prevent corrosion and damage to the tank’s metal surface. This means that your tank will last longer and require less maintenance!

Improve the Safety of Your Propane Tank

Another benefit of cathodic protection is that it can help to improve the safety of your tank. By protecting the metal surface from corrosion, CP can reduce the chances of a leak or rupture occurring. This means that you can rest assured knowing that your tank is safe and will not pose a danger to your family or property.
