Corrosion, Stress, Wear and Thermal Concerns in Pipe Support

Corrosion, Stress, Wear and Thermal Concerns in Pipe Support

What contributes to pipe support failure—and how have we designed our products to withstand them? Friction at load points, temperature, and improper installation are all covered.
  • Metal Dusting – High Temperature Corrosion

    Metal dusting is a type of corrosion that occurs at high temperatures (300-850 °C) most commonly when iron, nickel, or cobalt is exposed to an environment with high carbon activities.
  • Glass Corrosion

    Glass is generally highly corrosion resistant, but despite being good material choice for severe environments, glass can undergo corrosion, aka glass disease.
  • Galvanic Corrosion

    Galvanic reactions are the basis of galvanic corrosion, which occurs when dissimilar metals are coupled in an electrolyte and a galvanic couple forms.
  • Creeping on Crevice Corrosion

    Crevice corrosion occurs at, or within, gaps between two metal surfaces due to a difference in concentration of compounds in a fluid system.
  • Corrosion Part 2: The Nitty Gritty

    Most forms of corrosion occur through the action of an electrochemical cell, comprised of an anode, cathode, electrolytic path and driving potential.
  • Corrosion Part 1: What is it?

    Corrosion is the deterioration of a material and its properties due to reaction with the environment, leading to the pre-mature failure of components.
  • Cavitation Corrosion

    Cavitation occurs when bubbles form in a liquid. When the bubbles eventually implode, a shock wave causes stress and fatigue on the inside of pipes and vessels.
  • What is Tribocorrosion?

    Tribocorrosion is the breakdown of a material due to both corrosion and wear – an irreversible transformation of materials or their function as a result of both mechanical and chemical or electrochemical interactions between two surfaces in relative motion.
