1 Sacrificial current protection system The basic principle of a sacrificial protection system is based on the natural potential of metals. e. is more electronegative). This metal then acts as the anode and is termed the sacrificial anode. Commonly used anodes include magnesium blocks that are placed alongside the pipeline and corrode in preference to the pipe surface. Applications include: . subsea pipelines; . short onshore pipeline sections. c. voltage between the anode and cathode. External voltage is used to drive the protection current and ensures that the pipe surface is always the cathode.

Seamless pipe usually comes in smaller sizes, 450 mm and below in diameter. The main methods of seamless pipe manufacture include rotary forging, plug mill and extrusion. One such manufacturer is the Mannesmann Mill, which produces seamless pipe in what is known as a ‘plug mill’. This method uses a solid billet of steel that is formed into the shape of a pipe using a series of rollers and a piercing arm that forms the material into the shape of a tube. The tubes are then shaped into pipes where the wall thickness and pipe diameter measurements are controlled using a series of rollers and an internal forging arm (see Fig.

5% strain. This increases the strength and tests the integrity of the weld. A hydrostatic test to $95% of the specified minimum yield strength (SMYS). Inspection using NDT such as ultrasonics, magnetic particle inspection or radiography. Spiral submerged-arc welded (SSAW) pipes are used for larger-diameter pipelines of 400 mm and above, but the pipe diameter is dependent on the angle of coil and thickness of the sheet used. Manufacture is by using a hot roll of steel that is unwound using a series of rollers.
