What determines the size of a wear pad used on a pipe?

Two factors determine the size of the wear pad. One is the wall thickness of the supported pipe and the second is the load being supported. In general, thinner wall piping requires a larger contact surface area. Larger load capacities would also require a larger contact surface of the wear pad.
