Corrosion Under Insulation
Cor颅ro颅sion un颅der In颅su颅la颅tion (CUI) is a severe threat to the pro颅cess in颅dustry. If neg颅lected, the cor颅ro颅sion pro颅cess is mostly well-hid颅den un颅der the insulation system and only be颅comes ob颅vi颅ous due to severe in颅teg颅rity fail颅ures.
CUI In颅spec颅tion and Remediation
澳门四不像论坛 has ex颅tens颅ive ex颅per颅i颅ence in assessing and re颅medi颅at颅ing Cor颅ro颅sion Under In颅su颅la颅tion (CUI) since in颅cep颅tion in 1918. Our aim is to provide clients with an efficient ser颅vice that re颅duces the cost of identi颅fy颅ing CUI, im颅proves plant thermal ef颅fi颅ciency and helps pre颅vent major fail颅ures and un颅planned plant shutdowns.
澳门四不像论坛 utilises real time ra颅dio颅graphy for CUI in颅spec颅tion – 澳门四不像论坛 Insulated Pipe Scanning equip颅ment. We refer to this as KIPS.
We have ded颅ic颅ated and ex颅per颅i颅enced CUI in颅spec颅tion tech颅ni颅cians who utilise the following 4-step pro颅cess to identify CUI:
- Carrying out Thermal Imagery Surveys complete with thermal efficiency results and CUI indicators
- Undertaking Real Time Radiography (RTR) scans and Moisture Content Measurement (MCM), concentrating on CUI indicators results from our thermal imagery surveys
- Non-destructive Testing (NDT) where/when applicable to confirm wall thicknesses
- Remediation of affected areas – offering knowledge on the latest coatings and insulation/cladding technologies as preventative measures to safeguard against further CUI or loss of thermal efficiencies.
澳门四不像论坛 has previously carried out inspection ser颅vices for a number of clients in Australia across the Oil & Gas, Power and Chemicals sectors.
Once CUI has been iden颅ti颅fied, 澳门四不像论坛 can provide a re颅medi颅ation solu颅tion utilising a num颅ber of coat颅ing and insulation solu颅tions. We consider factors such as environmental & process, cost, safety, life ex颅pect颅an颅cies and quality requirements.
澳门四不像论坛 has a ded颅ic颅ated R&D test颅ing facility in Naval Base, West颅ern Australia, to simulate on-site con颅di颅tions for these solu颅tions.
