Wear types

Wear is defined as a progressive deterioration through loss of material due to prolonged or over-frequent use that ultimately degrades the condition of a part. This leads to a loss of performance, reduced productivity, increased risk to personnel, higher energy and input consumption, deterioration of output quality, and a lower yield.

When wear factors are combined, it can result in significantly increased costs. It is, therefore, crucial to take condition monitoring and wear management into account when it comes to maintenance and repair operations to ensure efficient operations, productive output, and cost optimisation.

The most common types of wear are:
