Abstract

Friction, wear, and surface-failure properties of materials sliding together in cryogenic liquid are vitally important to the development of efficient pumps. Bearings and shaft seals in particular have critical sliding surfaces and are used in all types of pumps. Positive displacement pumps may include additional parts such as vanes, pistons, or gears with surfaces in sliding contact.
