Pressure Vessel Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) Inspection & Repair
BE the Solution
Inspection for corrosion is generally not completed regularly enough due to the insulation replacement and removal costs. Failure to inspect for CUI can have catastrophic results to safety and cost. A presentation to the European Federation of Corrosion in September of 2003 by ExxonMobil indicated that the highest incidence of leaks in the refining and chemical industries are due to CUI and not anticipated corrosion from processes. It was estimated that between 40 and 60 percent of maintenance costs are related to CUI.
