Abstract

The corrosion protection factor (c.p.f.) and the corrosion condition (c.c.) are simple instruments for the study and evaluation of the contribution and efficiency of several methods of corrosion prevention and control. The application of c.p.f. and c.c. to corrosion and prevention in agriculture in The Netherlands is considered in detail. Attention is paid to relations between c.p.f. and c.c., the corrosion costs, possible cost savings and the applied corrosion protection scheme on farms. It is shown that the c.p.f. and the c.c. are useful expedients in a preliminary analysis of corrosion costs and possible cost savings on farms in relation to the corrosion protection methods applied. It is concluded that significant cost savings on arable farms can be derived by improving corrosion protection. No statistically significant cost savings are possible by improving corrosion protection on the dairy farms considered in this research.
