The Big Fink® cathodic protection test station is a field proven, high strength, maintenance free terminal for monitoring electric currents and potentials. Since 1976 the Big fink® CP test station has been utilized worldwide by gas, oil, chemical and water pipeline companies. Manufactured by Cott in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Los Angeles, California; it is available from Cott distributors everywhere.
Due to variations in pipeline casing projects, your project engineer should determine spacing. Some pipeline companies have achieved excellent results by positioning two insulators at each end of a casing and spacing insulators 4 to 6 feet apart. However, maximum spacing of insulators are also dependant on pipe diameter.
