Your Single Source

From a modest beginning in 1952, as a manufacturer's representative for a single pipeline coating, Stuart Steel Protection Corporation has grown to become one of the leading suppliers of corrosion control products.

Still under family ownership, Stuart now offers hundreds of products for corrosion control in the oil, gas, electric, telecommunications and marine industries.

The Stuart line of quality products reflects the latest advances in corrosion control technology.  Stuart offers a complete line of products for protecting a wide range of structures.  The line includes products for cathodic protection, coatings and wraps, electrical isolation products, sealing materials and related accessories. 

Cathodic Protection

The corrosion of underground structures is caused by a DC current flowing from one metal surface to another through the adjacent soil.  The metal surface discharging the current dissolves metal particles to cause deterioation of the structure.

Cathodic protection is a means of stopping the discharge of DC current from the structure or negative  (cathodic) metal, by countering with another current from a positive (anodic)  metal.  This is accomplished by installing anodes in electrical contact with the structure.

Anodes, Galvanic, Impressed, Magnesium, Aluminum, Zinc, Graphite, mixed metal oxide, precious metals, silicon-iron

Rectifiers, air cooled, oil cooled, custom

Cable, wire, connectors, splice kits, fittings

Test Stations, reference electrodes, testing equipment

Coatings and Wraps

Stuart offers a wide range of coatings, wraps, and application equipment for corrosion control.  These products include: epoxies, hot-applied tar coatings, heat-shrinkable sleeves, cold-applied tapes, mastics, petrolatum and Stuart Rock Stop™.

The Stuart Wrapster™, a pipe-wrapping machine developed in 1968, is specifically designed for applying Stuart Super Wrap and other hot or cold-applied plasticized tapes.

Electrical Isolation

Stuart isolation products include dielectric unions and flange insulation kits with gaskets, sleeves and washers.  We offer a variety of products to seal and separate the carrier pipe from the casing.  They include Stuart Casing Seal Kits, rubber link seals, spacers and casing fillers.

Instruments & Accessories

 

 

Electrical metering and instrumentation products include potential meters, reference cells, soil resistance instruments, holiday detectors, pipe locators, and other field monitoring devices.

Stuart Accessories include pipeline pigs for internal cleaning, pipeline marking tape, transition fittings, couplings and tools associated with corrosion control.
