Insulation materials are used extensively in the chemical, petrochemical, offshore and marine industries. They are used primarily to preserve heat loss, mitigate ice formation, reduce noise levels and to protect the workforce.
Insulation materials can be found in many forms including mineral wool/glass, foam glass and rubber amongst many others and are designed to perform specific functions. Prior to insulating an asset the surface is generally prepared and coated with a suitable material. An assets life expectancy can be as long as 50 years hence inspection of the preparation, coating and insulation at both the new build and maintenance stages is critical to ensure long term protection.
Corrosion under insulation or CUI is becoming an increasing problem on older plants and is costing industry large sums of money to either repair or in extreme cases replace the asset.
The SSPC insulation inspection course has been developed to give coating inspectors, plant and maintenance inspectors and engineers a greater understanding of the complex industry.
The course covers many subjects including insulation systems and materials, coatings systems used under insulation and the industry standards and specifications. Emphasis is also placed on the duties, roles and responsibilities of the insulation inspector.
The course contents include:
