Now completely revised and updated, this definitive, hands-on reference provides a comprehensive resource on the fundamental principles of lubricant application, what products are available, and which lubricants are most effective for specific applications. It also offers a detailed and highly practical discussion of lubrication delivery systems. You'll gain a clearer understanding of the "why" of relevant industrial lubrication practices, and, importantly, how these practices will facilitate optimized results. Lubricant applications covered include bearings and machine elements in earthbound electric motors, process pumps, gas compressors, gas and steam turbines, as well as many other machine types. An examination of the most advantageous ways to procure lubricants, to understand contaminant filtration, and to implement cost-justified means of lubricant storage is presented. Also provided are expert tips on lubricant handling techniques, procedural setups, how and when to perform oil analyses, critical maintenance practices, equipment reliability issues, and more.
