A REVOLUTION for

Corrosion Under Insulation
(C.U.I.) INSPECTION

SEPTEMBER 2016

Corrosion Under Insulation is possibly the greatest UNRESOLVED ASSET INTEGRITY PROBLEM in the industry SEPTEMBER 2016 .

Current methods for measuring wall thickness over insulation (liftoff) without removing it have SEVERE LIMITATIONS SEPTEMBER 2016 .
