  • Compensates for increase in salinity

Capac technique

The Potential difference between the hull and seawater causes galvanic corrosion on all structures in seawater. The ICCP system provides protection by neutralizing this difference with several anodes. Traditional technique makes use of zinc anodes, however are not able to change to changing salinities. The CAPAC system supplies a controlled amount of current to those surfaces by using platinum anodes and silver electrodes.
