Abrade

ABRADEĀ A001

To abrade means to rub, or wear away by friction.

It is important to choose abradable materials for the support, restrictive and thermal bushings we place in the end of pump stuffing boxes.

TeflonĀ®, graphite, brass and carbon are examples of abradable materials.

Non-abradable materials, such as ceramic, could shatter in these applications.
