Course overview

Asset integrity management is vital to reduce ongoing asset maintenance costs. Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) is one of the leading causes of asset degradation and in turn leads to serious financial implications for asset owners.

  • CUI is responsible for 40-60% of all piping maintenance costs
