CUI is more likely on insulated pipings exposed to water/mist/moisture and in the range of 25º to 250º . !rosion is "aused due to impa"ts of solid parti"les in li#uids/gases or li#uid parti"les in gases. It is more serious if "orrosion is also present. atigue failure is "aused due to "y"li" stress or stress re%ersals &%i'rations( thermal "hanges).
