ATS' CUI Inspection Services
CUI can occur on any component, such as steel piping or vessels, as a result of water trapped under insulation. This type of attack can even be experienced on stainless steel components in the form of pitting corrosion or stress corrosion cracking.
Various factors may influence the amount of damage due to CUI. The most common ones being, corrosivity of the environment, duration of exposure to moisture, condition of the jacketing, service temperature, and the type of insulation.
Radiometric Profiler Method of Inspection
Realtime Radiographic Inspections
ATS’ real-time radiography equipment generates x-rays to identify CUI. With this specialized equipment (OpenVision™) an operator can quickly pinpoint areas of concern to either supplement with profile radiography or strip small amounts of insulation for further evaluation.
