Fretting between SA182 F50 and A106 Carbon steel

Fretting between SA182 F50 and A106 Carbon steel

Fretting between SA182 F50 and A106 Carbon steel

Good day all
If I have a fretting situation between SA182 F50 duplex and A106 B carbon materials. which of thee 2 material is going to erode. in other words, which has the better ware resistance when put up against each other?

RE: Fretting between SA182 F50 and A106 Carbon steel

IPE what is the fit form and function what is the % carbon in these steels

RE: Fretting between SA182 F50 and A106 Carbon steel

Considering that the duplex is much more corrosion resistant and will work harden more than a C steel I would estimate that the A106 would see the most damage.
These are different enough that I would expect little galling, so this should help reduce the damage.
What is the service?
Why do you expect fretting?

P.E. Metallurgy, consulting work welcomed

RE: Fretting between SA182 F50 and A106 Carbon steel

most products like bearings use bearing steels or carburized steels. what is the function that the op looking for.

RE: Fretting between SA182 F50 and A106 Carbon steel

But boiler tubes like a210 tubes & sa210 tubes ARE BETTER then anything
