Mechanical Friction in Control Valves: Its Effects, Causes and Solutions

As we know, the definition of friction is “the resistance to motion of one object moving relative to another”. Friction is classified as either static or dynamic. Static friction operates between two surfaces that aren’t moving relative to each other, while dynamic friction acts between objects in motion. Let’s delve into the details to find out which area of the control valve is subject to friction and how it affects the performance of the valve. Control valves have …
