The Integration of Monitoring Technologies in CUI Risk Management through the Updated DNV-RP-G109
Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is a major safety threat that costs the industry billions of dollars each year. It is a common form of corrosion that occurs in insulated equipment and piping systems, where moisture and other corrosive agents can penetrate through insulation and attack the underlying metal. CUI can lead to equipment failure, leaks, and other serious safety and operational issues.
To address this problem, CorrosionRADAR has participated in a workshop with DNV to identify and detail expectations for the update of the recommended practice DNV-RP-G109. This document describes a comprehensive methodology for managing CUI risk, which includes the use of monitoring technologies to bring more accurate results that translate into cost reductions and improved safety.
CorrosionRADAR is a leader in the development of monitoring technologies for the detection and management of corrosion under insulation in industrial environments. Their expertise in this area has made them a valuable partner for DNV, a leading provider of risk management services to the energy, maritime, and oil and gas industries.
The workshop brought together experts from both companies, as well as other technology providers and operators, to discuss the current state of CUI management and to input into Appendix C of DNV-RP-G109 . They also discussed the use of monitoring technologies, such as CorrosionRADAR's wireless sensors and data analytics platform, to better assess the risk of CUI and to develop more effective management strategies.
The updated recommended practice DNV-RP-G109 will include new guidelines and recommendations for the use of monitoring technologies in CUI risk management. These guidelines will help companies to better understand the benefits of monitoring technologies and how they can be used to reduce costs and improve safety.
One of the key benefits of using monitoring technologies is that they provide more accurate and real-time data on the condition of equipment and piping systems. This data can be used to more effectively manage corrosion risks and to make more informed decisions about maintenance and repair activities.
Another benefit is that monitoring technologies can help to reduce the need for costly and time-consuming inspections. Traditional inspection methods require equipment shutdowns and often involve removing insulation, which can be costly and disruptive. With monitoring technologies, inspections can be carried out remotely and without the need for equipment shutdowns, reducing costs and downtime.
In conclusion, the participation of CorrosionRADAR in the workshop with DNV to update the recommended practice DNV-RP-G109 is a positive step towards more effective CUI risk management. The use of monitoring technologies, such as CorrosionRADAR's wireless sensors and data analytics platform, will play a key role in reducing costs and improving safety in the industry. The updated guidelines and recommendations will provide companies with a comprehensive methodology for managing CUI risk and help them to stay ahead of this major safety threat.
