Mitigating Corrosion Under Insulation and Supporting the Longevity of Industrial Pipe Insulating Systems

A systems approach that includes impermeable insulating materials and accessories, combined with proper installation techniques, can help keep moisture away from process pipes and support the system’s longevity, even in harsh conditions.

Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is a serious and expensive problem for industrial pipes. In the United States alone, CUI costs an estimated $276 billion—possibly more—in direct and indirect costs. The presence of moisture in the industrial environment introduces the threat of CUI; however, there are proactive strategies to defend against it. To function safely and efficiently, industrial pipes require effective insulating systems. Taking steps like choosing compatible accessories and providing an additional layer of moisture protection (essentially creating a sealed system) are ways to prevent the costly and potentially dangerous issue of CUI.
