Corrosion under insulation (CUI) can account for up to 40% of maintenance costs for pipes, according to ROCKWOOL Technical Insulation (RTI) (Houston, Texas, USA) Moreover, water trapped underneath and/or in the insulation is not only corrosive; it also reduces thermal performance and efficiency.
Some process plants operate at noise levels of greater than 100 decibels, according to RTI, which is similar to the noise from a helicopter. This can damage hearing over time, which can also lead to fatigue, anxiety, and other issues that can negatively impact safety and job performance.
In this webcast presented by ROCKWOOL, attendees will learn:
- Why CUI is important, and how it affects the total cost of plant ownership;
- Water repellency variations of various insulation materials;
- Lab testing results of different types of water repellency additives;
- Innovative technology to mitigate CUI;
- Health, safety, and environmental issues resulting from noise, and how stone wool provides superior noise suppression
