CP / ER Test Station

for Harsh Environments

View PDF version
The Metal Samples Harsh Environment CP/ER Test Station provides a complete solution for making corrosion and potential measurements on buried pipes or structures. The test station provides test points for the pipe/structure, two CP coupons1, and an optional reference electrode1. The test station also provides two interrupt switches which can be used to disconnect the coupons from the pipe or structure for instant-off measurements.

The internal faceplate of the CP/ER Test Station is pre-cut to accommodate a 6-pin panel connector from a standard ER underground probe1. This allows all measurements to be terminated within the same enclosure, simplifying installation and reducing cost. Once installed, the ER probe's grounding lead may be connected to either of the Pipe terminal posts to bond it to the pipe and CP system.

The test station is housed in a 316L stainless steel weatherproof 2 enclosure and utilizes corrosion resistant components, allowing it to be used in harsh environments. The test station is designed to mount directly onto a 3" conduit fitting1, making installation simple.
