Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is one of the most pervasive issues faced by pipes, boilers, storage tanks and pressure vessels that are susceptible to moisture from rain, high humidity and fog. Corrosion costs business over $2,505,000,0000 each year, and places countless lives, the environment, and production at risk. In addition to tying up countless man-hours with repairs and clean-up, an estimated 40-60% of piping repair costs are spent in treating or addressing the aftermath of CUI. Learn more about the causes of CUI below, as well as a unique preventive inspection technology below.
