Tribological problems in heavy industry

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • A brief summary of the tribological problems in the integrated steel plant in Port Kembla NSW has been presented. The friction and wear problems are diverse, and a better understanding of these tribological problems can bring about significant savings in maintenance cost and increase of plant availability. It is estimated that a better application of current knowledge of tribology could achieve annual savings of between 16 to 27 billion US dollars in the United States, and approximately hundreds of millions of dollars in Australia.
