How Automated Radiography (ART) Reduces Downtime and Improves Detection in Corrosion Under Insulation Inspection

MISTRAS Group, October 6, 2023

Webinar Overview

Most refinery and process plant operators are aware of the significant impact corrosion under insulation (CUI) has on their assets, but effectively detecting it remains a major problem. Many plants perform visual inspections or strip insulation for qualitative nondestructive testing (NDT), resulting in lengthy facility shutdowns, operational delays, and high costs.

Join us as Inspectioneering and MISTRAS Group team up for our webinar, “How Automated Radiography (ART) Reduces Downtime and Improves Detection in Corrosion Under Insulation Inspection.” ​​During this webinar, Ian Moreau, Technology Manager at MISTRAS Group, will discuss how automated radiographic testing (ART) inspection technology provides large-scale CUI screening at a fraction of traditional costs. Key takeaways from this webinar include:

  • How ART services increase the probability of detecting CUI and water ingress without removing insulation or constructing scaffolding
  • How ART services reduce CUI inspection campaign time and costs
  • Case studies showcasing ART’s efficacy as a CUI detection tool
