AC Mitigation Services
Land management regulatory bodies are requiring utility and transportation corridors to be shared by many corridor services. There can be dire consequences where electrical transmission lines are co-located with metal infrastructure like pipelines. This can lead to increased risk and safety.
SAE’s engineered AC Mitigation (ACM) pipeline protection system provides high performance electrodes and extremely low maintenance. The ACM system effectively dissipates high levels of induced AC current that provides more pipeline protection over a longer life than current solutions, and that can be efficiently installed quickly and easily.
- Large diameter electrodes consisting of a copper core embedded in a solid Conducrete® surround.
- The large surface area of SAE electrodes easily handles the dissipation of large amounts of induced current, whether
from electrical transmission lines or from lightning strikes.
- Electrode core corrosion is significantly reduced by the protective Conducrete® layer, further extending the useful lifetime of the electrode.
- Installed electrodes are environmentally neutral, with very low corrosion rates and virtually no gas or particle dispersal
into the surrounding soil.
