Corrosion Under Insulation in the Thermal Power Generation Industry

With the rise of renewable power, some fossil-fuelled power plants are increasingly run intermittently, as much needed capacity for when renewable energy is not enough. This repeated intermittent use leads to heating and cooling of equipment, which means the plants more often pass through the 60-150°C (175°F) temperature range, the danger area for corrosion under insulation.
