What is the difference between conventional pipeline protection and electrochemical protection?
New word in pipe protection

Stray currents and corrosion pose a high risk to the gas pipeline. The main problem is that the section of the gas pipeline exposed to electrochemical corrosion is impossible or extremely difficult to calculate in advance. Currently, corrosion causes significant economic damage to enterprises. That the reason why in 2000 our company developed and patented a special technology of Electrical Insulating Joint (NEMS).

NEMS is designed for electrical separation of pipelines in order to increase the efficiency of electrochemical protection systems. Outperforms many existing joints in terms of reliability and strength. In trouble-free operation there are more than 400 thousand NEMS on gas pipelines, oil pipelines, product pipelines, high-pressure water pipelines with a working pressure of up to 245 bar, in housing and communal services, etc.

Based on 30 years of experience in the oil and gas industry, we recommend using NEMS Isolating Joints.

Construction nems
Consists of two metal pipes corresponding to the pipe connection sizes, connected by a coupling connection
O-rings of a particular profile made of elastic rubber, which are compressed between the contact surfaces of the pipes, coupling and liner, provide tightness of the nems
The inner and outer coating surface of the NEMS can be protected by one or other type of coating, depending on the operation and requirements of the customer
The additional equipment of the NEMS with a fire-discharge device and control and measuring devices is possible
