Corrosion Under Insulation: Why CUI is Not the Problem
There's no doubt that industry has taken the issue of corrosion under insulation (CUI) seriously over the last 40 years.
The volume of data on the history, causes and challenges associated with CUI is expansive.That data, as comprehensive as it is, has not led to a discernible decrease in the instances of CUI. This is reflected in the investment and research that continues today by OEMs, research institutes and mechanical integrity teams. These facts lead some to conclude the issue is in fact unsolvable.
In this white paper, we discuss the importance of predicting failures before they happen to demonstrate that CUI does not have to be a perennial issue. Preventing moisture ingress may be, but CUI happens over time and with the right strategies moisture can be detected before it initiates CUI.
