CUI is more likely on insulated pipings exposed to water/mist/moisture and in the range of 25 to 250 . !rosion is "aused due to impa"ts of solid parti"les in li#uids/gases or li#uid parti"les in gases. It is more serious if "orrosion is also present. atigue failure is "aused due to "y"li" stress or stress re%ersals &%i'rations( thermal "hanges). Creep failure is dependent on time( temperature and stress. +he two important inspe"tions "arried out periodi"ally on piping are, a. +hi"kness measurement inspe"tion( and '. !xternal %isual inspe"tion
