MATCOR Successfully Completes Tank CP Project In Mexico

JA Electronics explosion-proof rectifiers for tank CP project in Mexico.

MATCOR recently completed a significant tank CP project in the Mexican port city of Altamira along the Gulf of Mexico. The project consisted of design, detailed engineering, supplying materials, providing installation supervision, and commissioning and testing the systems upon completion of the installation for nine above-ground storage tanks.

Tank CP Project Utilizes Linear Anodes

The cathodic protection system utilized MATCOR’s SPL Linear Anode Concentric Ring tank system that consists of individual, factory assembled, and tested anode segments. This approach facilitates a simple installation that does not require cutting, splicing, or joining anode assemblies in the field. The anode rings utilize a redundant anode cable feed system that assures reliability. This cost-effective solution protects the bottom of tanks on projects across the United States and around the globe.

Explosion Proof Rectifiers

MATCOR also supplied customized explosion-proof oil-cooled rectifiers (pictured above) for each of these tanks from our sister company, JA Electronics. These rectifiers are used in Class 1 Div 2 hazardous areas. Additionally, cast aluminum Class 1 Div 2 junction boxes were also manufactured and supplied by JA Electronics.
