Building on Dairyland’s proven history of industry-leading product lines, the PCRX represents the next technological leap forward in decoupling technology. Using sophisticated design techniques that represent the work of numerous leading experts around the world, the PCRX’s new camouflage technology renders it virtually invisible to interrupted survey testing.
Welcome to Dairyland University
There’s no shortage of information to be found on the internet, and our website is full of great technical resources, too. But if you’re new to the industry, or still learning about Dairyland products and applications, too much information can be overwhelming. We’ve got you covered. At Dairyland University we’ve pulled together the most critical information to get you up to speed, fast!
At Dairyland we value accurate, reliable technical resources that can help you apply decouplers properly and solve your application challenges. Don’t see what you are looking for? We are ready to help.
Introduction to Decouplers
Metallic structures including pipelines and tanks, are made more corrosion resistant by the application of cathodic protection current require safety grounding for over-voltage conditions, such as lightning or AC fault events. Decouplers allow corrosion professionals to simultaneously protect their assets from corrosion, while also implementing safety grounding systems.

Learn More About Our Applications
Dairyland decouplers such as the SSD, PCR and PCRX, will provide you with an effective grounding path that mitigates induced AC, while simultaneously maintaining DC isolation improving your mitigation system.
Isolation Joint Protection
Protect isolation joints from lightning and AC fault current by limiting the voltage to safe levels and providing a conduction path around the joint.
Decoupling Electric Equipment Grounding Systems
Use a Dairyland product to provide DC isolation and simultaneous AC grounding for motors and other equipment, eliminating direct bonds that will short-circuit your CP system
Gradient Control Mat Decoupling
Address dangerous step and touch potentials for a safer work environment using Dairyland's Gradient Control Mat. Accompany it with a decoupler to prevent the mat from negatively impacting the CP system.
