Just published in its updated fourth edition, this highly regarded text explains in clear terms how and why the best-of-class pump users are consistently achieving superior run lengths, low maintenance expenditures, and unexcelled safety and reliability. Written by practicing engineers whose working careers were marked by involvement in all facets of pumping technology, operation, assessment, upgrading and cost management, this book endeavors to describe in detail how you, too, can accomplish optimum pump performance and low life cycle cost. A new chapter on breaking the cycle of pump repairs examines the cost of failures and the defined operating range of pumps. The authors also explore mechanical issues, deviations from best available technology, and preventing problems with oil rings and constant level lubricators. Additional topics include bearing housing protector seals, best lube application practices, lubrication and bearing distress, and paying for value.
