Detection of Stray Currents

Detection of stray currents which may be causing corrosion is somewhat involved and involves technical operations for which field staff are usually not equipped. Their presence may be suspected when large direct-current installations are in the vicinity of the structure experiencing corrosion and especially when very rapid corrosion occurs. The services of a corrosion specialist should then be requested. (reference)
