Legacy of Cathodic Protection Solutions, LLC
Cathodic protection is the proven technology for the prevention of corrosion and metal loss in pipelines and crude oil storage tanks subjected to harsh environments or direct contact with soil. Cathodic protection companies use a complex network of rectifiers and buried anodes to provide a specific voltage covering the metal service to prevent corrosion. The network of power sources are remotely monitored using rectifiers and inspected monthly or bi-monthly, and annually, for proper operation. Regular inspections reduce the time of exposure during failed conditions preventing corrosion and unrecoverable metal loss in pipelines.
Cathodic Protection Solutions LLC was established by current CEO Joe Gallo Jr with headquarters in Odessa, Texas. In 1985 when Joe was a young man finding his way in life, he was offered a job in the oil and gas pipeline fields of West Texas by a reputable service company. Like an epiphany, Joe immediately found his calling in life and set forth on a life long career in cathodic protection.
In 1991, after years of impressing customers with an innovative passion for cathodic protection and a demonstrated investment in customer relationships, Joe was awarded research and development contracts to engineer proposed technological improvements to both cathodic protection and internal pipeline corrosion systems.
