New patented innovation: SPA discrete anode

By SPA | May 17, 2016 | 0 Comments

SPA 26 plus & SPA 18 plus Discrete anodes in concrete have been used extensively in reinforced concrete structures especially for concrete elements located in tidal and splash zones. Due to their encapsulation within the concrete, discrete anodes eliminate the risk of grout acidification resultant from sea water in splash zones. These anodes are proven…

Vapour Phase Corrosion Emitters

Vapour Phase Corrosion Emitters Explained…

By SPA | November 18, 2015 | 0 Comments

Vapour phase corrosion emitters are small, specialised devices designed to provide corrosion protection for metal components and parts which are enclosed in non-ventilated control boxes. The Vapour phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI) emits vapours that form a monomolecular protective coating on internal metal surfaces. This coating protects critical, complex and expensive electronic equipment from corrosion initiation…

SPA Offers a New Generation in CP Power Supply Units

By SPA | November 17, 2015 | 0 Comments

SPA has developed a power supply unit for cathodic protection (CP) systems which is simple to operate, has web connectivity and is designed with thorough long term durability and reliability in mind. Importantly, it does not rely on any proprietary components, and this addresses one of the primary shortcomings of various proprietary power supply units which have been incorporated in CP systems in Australia.

Borin Stelth 2 Reliable reference electrodes in concrete and soil

By SPA | October 13, 2015 | 0 Comments

One of the most important aspects of cathodic protection installations is achieving accurate monitoring and minimal maintenance of the CP components embedded in the concrete and soil. Reliable reference electrodes are essential for accurate monitoring and the adjustment of the CP system, leading to optimum protection of the structure.
