Analyzing Performance Differences Between Spark Gaps and DC Decouplers in Over-Voltage Applications hosted by Corrosionpedia
- This event has passed.
Join Dairyland and Corrosionpedia for a webinar that provides an overview of why over-voltage protection on isolation joints is needed and a brief description of the two most common protection technologies – spark gaps and solid-state DC decouplers. The primary focus however includes a detailed explanation of the limitations of spark gaps for use as over-voltage protection devices on pipelines and explains why properly rated solid-state devices should be used in place of spark gaps for most pipeline applications.
Attendees will learn:
- An overview of over-voltage protection of isolation joints
- A high-level understanding of spark gap and DC decoupler technologies
- A detailed, data-driven analysis of spark gap performance in over-voltage conditions
- An analysis of performance benefits in solid-state devices
- November 8, 2022, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CST
