The Friction and Corrosion Relationship

By Advanced Piping Products

Prevent piping corrosion related to exterior friction wear.

 
 

Process pipes are subjected to movement due to changes in temperature, load, or other operating variables and this movement causes friction between the pipe and its support. Frictional forces are undesirable because of the wear and tear that they cause to a pipe.

 

Fortunately, there are composite pipe supports engineered to minimize friction throughout your piping system.

 

A frictional force is experienced whenever two materials move or slide across each other. This frictional force can be described by the equation:

 

 

Frictional force is experienced whenever two materials move or slide across each other.

On pipes, friction is undesirable because it causes abrasion and leads to wear.

 

 

The Coefficient of Friction is a dimensionless number that describes the resistance of movement between two materials. The higher the CoF value, the more frictional resistance there is. For example, the CoF between your foot and a sheet of ice is much lower than that between sandpaper and a piece of wood.

 

Metal-to-metal contact has a higher CoF than that of metal-to-polymer and much higher than that of polymer-to-polymer.

 

Friction is undesirable because it causes abrasion and leads to wear. Abrasion can be thought of cutting on a microscopic scale. Abrasive wear is problematic because it decreases the mechanical integrity of piping. Pipes could experience fatigue failure sooner than designed for.

 

In addition to mechanical wear, abrasion makes the metal pipe more susceptible to corrosion. Often times, pipes are painted in order to prevent corrosion. The idea behind this is that the paint will act as a physical barrier and prevent a corrosion cell from forming.

 

Unfortunately, abrasion can cause pipe coatings to degrade, which leaves the pipe without its protective coating and corrosion ensues.

 

Abrasion also exacerbates corrosion because it alters the microstructure of the metal and subjects the material to stress. High stress areas are at a higher energy state than the un-worn metal so the worn area can become anodic to the low stress area, which creates a corrosion cell.

 

This type of corrosion would be a localized attack, which is more difficult to detect than uniform corrosion and therefore is more dangerous.

 

As previously mentioned, there is a large frictional force when metals slide on each other. Contrarily, polymer-to-metal and polymer-to-polymer interfaces have lower CoF values, which make polymers the optimal low friction bearings.

 

Composite pipe supports are engineered to reduce friction and prolong the life of your piping system. Are there applications in your refinery that can benefit from these types of supports?

  • Werneree :   What a great topic about "The Friction and Corrosion Relationship". This will be helpful for all workers in this field and those who wanted to learn about work efficiently on this things. Finally I can understand the "Coefficient of Friction " after so many years LOL! Try this game called soul knight - it is a role playing game with cool gameplay that you will surely enjoy. If you are a fan of Runescape then I highly recommend this game!

  • Jacky :   Hey! thanks for the info. There is really less info on the web relating friction to corrosion. You can visit https://dewwool.com/friction/ for animations on friction.

  • OKmarts :   Thanks for your sharing. I'd like to raise one of my concerns here. What about the friction occur in the pump or compressor station? It is not only friction but also there's definitely vibration from reciprocating compressors. Can you expand on this topic or is there any info you can link me to? Cheers!

I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there.

So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email dr.azukasolutionhome@gmail.com he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy.
