Written for maintenance managers and
practitioners, Lubrication for Industry provides a fundamental understanding
of how and why effective lubrication practices are an essential aspect of
industrial equipment maintenance.
Focuses on the practical daily aspects of
lubrication that impact productivity. Covers, in detail, failure analysis,
costing techniques, modes of friction, generations of lubricants, oil and
grease classifications and evaluations (including animal/vegetable, mineral,
and synthetic), viscosity and other oil and grease standards and
characteristics, lubricant compatibility guidelines, how to calculate bearing
and other lubrication requirements, preventive maintenance including wear
particle analysis, and filter rating and classifications. Provides ten case
studies drawn from the author's consulting experiences that emphasize the
importance of developing and implementing effective, long-term solutions for
lubrication, maintenance engineering, and maintenance management.
