Symposium Failure Prevention and Unconventional Failures
Presentation Title The Power of the "Infinite Smalls" Where Heavy Rude Working Conditions Are Involved !
Author(s) Pierre Dupont
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Pierre Dupont
Abstract Scope This talk will show through practical industrial case studies how some specific failure modes such as abrasive, adhesive, corrosive wear and rolling contact fatigue can be minimized or nearly avoided by the use of some thin micronscaled surface treatments and especially under so heavy working conditions as those met in pulp&paper, steel casting and polymer industry. A detailled description of the working conditions rudeness of those applications will be done to better show the complete efficiency of these solutions leading sometimes to a time 4 to 5 increase of the lifetimes of the machine components. A review of some specific coatings (Iron Oxydes, DLC, Ceramics, …) showing their composition and properties is previewed. A talk truly oriented on prevention !
