CORROSION SERVICES TO MUNICIPALITIES AND INDUSTRY
Our company inspects and protects materials prone to corrosion. We use half cell surveys to conduct nondestructive inspection of such materials as parking garages, bridges, walkways and storage tanks. We work for municipalities, cities, villages and towns, and for architects, construction contractors, structural engineers, tank farms and building owners.
Watch this short video of a half cell survey:
After inspection, our company designs and installs corrosion protection systems for a variety of municipal and industrial structures, including:
- underground and above-ground storage tanks
- municipal water wells
- package sewage plants and sewage clarifiers
- steel and ductile iron in-ground pipes for drinking water and sewage plants
- geothermal wells
- standing historical structures, parking garages and bridges
Corrosion Services also provides ultrasonic, magnetic particle and dyepentrant inspection of steel storage tanks. We certify tanks per NYSDEC 6 NYCRR Parts 612, 613 and 614.
We offer consulting services for the construction and preservation of standing concrete structures such as parking garages and historical structures.
INSPECTION AND DESIGN OF CORROSION PROTECTION SYSTEMS
Corrosion Services works in association with inspection and welding companies, tank cleaners, well drillers and clients to design corrosion protection systems for industrial and municipal applications. We provide clients with procedures for inspection and repair of defects in storage tanks, stainless steel and fiberglass reinforced plastic.

Our company trains municipal water departments and sewage department personnel to monitor and protect their own water mains, water storage tanks and sewage plants. We survey corrosion hot spots, and then train these personnel to apply cathodic protection to these areas. We design cathodic protection systems that meet with tight budgets and in a short period of time to save capital and maintenance costs.
FAILURE INVESTIGATIONS FOR INDUSTRY AND ATTORNEYS
Corrosion Services provides quality metallurgical analysis of failures. Clients may choose qualified laboratories for specimen preparation and analysis while the company provides laboratories with directions. We provide final reports if expert witness documentation is needed.
