EEMUA Seminar: Corrosion under insulation

Location:

near Warrington

Date(s):

21/6/2018

Summary:

Now more than ever, detecting CUI prior to serious damage or failure to the process system is imperative. This seminar looks at inspection and operation, and how to mitigate the attendant risks without incurring excessive costs.

Detail:

Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is one of the key concerns for industrial asset operators, as it affects a wide range of key equipment and it has become more critical in the industry for a number of reasons.

For one, the industry as a whole has become more complex with industries as diverse as the chemical, petroleum and food processing facilities, to name a few, requiring more sophisticated equipment, instruments and piping arrangements. In addition, piping and equipment are more difficult to insulate, requiring highly skilled professionals. However faced with greater revenue uncertainty, corporations are having to reduce staff numbers and budgets and this cost cutting is putting inspections and maintenance in jeopardy.

Attendance is free of charge for delegates from EEMUA member and associate companies. For members and associates registering on the website for the first time, please note that there is an additional validation step. In this case, we recommend registering for the event only after the ‘Welcome to EEMUA’ communication has been received. This will ensure that once logged in you will have free entry to the event.

Non-members can take advantage of an early bird rate, available until 10th May 2018. A standard rate of £300 will apply to all non-member registrations made after the deadline.

Limited spaces are available to delegates from higher education establishments, i.e. staff and full time students, at a reduced rate. All delegates from higher education establishments will be required to provide us with confirmation of their status accordingly, e.g. copy of student ID card, personnel ID card, etc.
