Average protective current density measured from galvanically protecting an AISI 1018 carbon steel pipe submerged in saturated potash brine using magnesium over 95 minutes. The data set describes how much current is required to protect the steel from the moment it is submerged in potash brine for a total of 95 minutes. This data can be used to estimate the average current density required to protect 1018 carbon steel in saturated potash brine to use in design calculations for cathodic protection systems.
