Battle against water intrusion/ corrosion

Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is one of the major concerns for most insulated tank owners. CUI is a severe form of localized external corrosion that occurs in carbon and low-alloy steel that has been insulated. It is well-known that this aggressive form of corrosion occurs when water is absorbed by or collected in the insulation materials covering the surface. Many in the industry are scrambling to find a solution to this potentially catastrophic problem. Some are seeking alternative insulation materials that claim to be more resistant to CUI, and others are adding additional coatings to the surface prior to insulating in hopes of extending the life of their valuable assets. It is widely known that water intrusion is the key contributor to CUI, yet many application techniques and design efforts do nothing to combat this constant threat.

When these two components are approached from a systemic viewpoint, the potential for water intrusion can be greatly reduced, offering a large return on the investment. When an insulation system is successful in eliminating or minimizing water intrusion, several notable advantages are achieved:

This return on investment indicates the need to spend more time up front to design a tank and insulation system that combats the devastating effects of CUI and promotes ease of installation. ISO Services' ISO Panels system is customized to meet your needs, featuring superior strength and increased R-values. With an unmatched level of experience, ISO Services takes pride in providing services that exceed customer expectations.
