Corrosion Under Insulation
Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is a major area of concern for the petroleum and chemical process industries. CUI can result in sudden and hazardous leaks which can endanger plant personnel and surrounding communities. Damage also causes costly repairs and plant shutdowns which can lead to significantly high losses of production and potentially lower profits. The API 570 visual inspection technique often fails to detect CUI. Although corrosion can be hard to find, Amerapex offers a number of methods to successfully identify these areas.
Amerapex is an industry leader in turn-key CUI programs. We use a comprehensive evaluation of your specific CUI needs coupled with a wide array of NDT technologies and a detailed API 570 visual inspection. We are able to locate CUI cost effectively while maintaining a very high coverage rate. CUI programs can become costly due to high insulation and scaffold cost. Amerapex developed programs that yield more accurate results while keeping craft support costs down to a minimum. Change is constant which is why Amerapex evolves and adapts to market needs. Your confidence will remain high knowing Amerapex is continuously adding the newest NDT methods to these programs. Put your CUI needs into the hands of a company with a proven track record of success and many years experience. Amerapex is dedicated to our motto “Efficiency Through Innovation.”
