Erosive wear

Erosive wear (or erosion) occurs when particles in a fluid or other carrier slide and roll at relatively high velocity against a surface. Each particle contacting the surface cuts a tiny particle from the surface. Individually, each particle removed is insignificant, but a large number of particles removed over a long period of time can produce staggering degrees of erosion. Erosive wear can be expected in metal parts and assemblies where the above conditions are present; common problem areas are found in pumps and impellers, fans, steam lines and nozzles, the inside of sharp bends in tubes and pipes, sand and shot blasting equipment, and similar areas where there is considerable relative motion between the metal and the particles. - Internet Partner
