As regular precipitation returns to North America this increase of humidity poses a huge risk for pipes that are vulnerable to Corrosion Under Insulation, or as it is more commonly identified, CUI. Each year, undetected CUI issues cause millions of dollars of damage due to pipe failures, flooding, and other such issues. Knowing what to look for, as well as the causes of CUI can help you catch rust and corrosion before it has the chance to progress to pipe failure. Learn more about CUI below, as well as some key ways to detect early signs of it.
Heat exchanger tubes are vital assets to the power, O&G, mining and chemical plant sectors, helping to moderate the temperature of fluids and gases throughout plants and processes for optimal performance and safety. In order to maintain heat exchanger tubes in optimum condition, regular non-destructive testing (NDT) is crucial for the detection of flaws that may lead to poor heat transfer and increased operating costs. Routine inspection not only helps to avoid sudden failures but can help extend the life of your tubular heat exchangers. Learn more about the importance of regular testing below.
