CUI: Corrosion under insulation - how to avoid it
CUI – Corrosion under insulation
 The corrosion under insulation war has been fought for many years in the petrochemical industry
 The corrosion processes are well understood but yet CUI often goes undetected until the damage is significant
 May lead to catastrophic failures, e.g. on equipment operating under high pressure
 May occur on:
 Carbon steel (general/localised corrosion)
 Stainless steel (localised corrosion/stress corrosion cracking)
CUI cost studies have shown that:
 40 to 60 % of pipe maintenance costs are caused by CUI
 NDE/inspection costs with a high confidence level for detecting CUI are equal to or exceed field painting costs
 Approximately 10 % of the total maintenance budget is spent repairing damage from CUl
