CUI can be extremely difficult to detect, with insulation and cladding often masking corrosion and traditional methods, such as visual inspection through the removal of cladding and insulation can be time-consuming. Often the true extent of corrosion is not realised until too late, incurring substantial costs and productivity losses for operators. Radiography offers a safe, timely and cost-effective solution for the detection of CUI. The Oil and Gas Technical group of the ACA were fortunate to be joined by John Forlani (KAEFER Integrated Services) who shared some of his expertise with this method with us and discussed some of the key benefits of RT Radiography.
