From Experience: Dielectric Fittings in Utility Process Piping
In food plants, utility piping is typically constructed of copper or carbon steel pipe, which then transitions to stainless steel pipe or tube before entering GMP areas. Because food plant lines frequently contain water (even “glycol” lines), the combination of the dissimilar metals and the presence of water makes these lines inherently susceptible to galvanic corrosion. Learn about the special considerations needed in the April 2020 issue of Hixson’s From Experience newsletter.
