Taylor & Francis Publishing This superb reference provides a thorough understanding of lubricant-related manufacturing problems and procedures, from specification, selection, substitution, application, and analysis to replacement, in-situ purification, consolidation, handling, and storage. It compares lubrication strategies for electric motor bearings; closed and open and large and small gears; compressors and gas engines; and steam and gas turbines, highlighting machine components that require proper lubrication for long-term, satisfactory, and economical operation.
Presenting comprehensive introductory material that emphasizes the four lubricant categories and the significance of a lubricant's parameter, Practical Lubrication for Industrial Facilities discusses o applications essential for lube oil conservation and consolidation projects o heavy duty hydraulic oil requirements o mineral and synthetic food-grade oils o the merits of the most important synthetic hydrocarbon oils o appropriate lubricants for forest products and paper machinery o the characteristics of competitive lubricating greases o the benefits and pitfalls of particular pastes, waxes, and tribosystems o lubricant delivery systems, including centralized grease and fully automated oil mist lubrication systems o and much more!
Containing a quick-reference glossary of industry terms, an on-the-job lubrication program manual, and numerous illustrations, Practical Lubrication for Industrial Facilities is a must-have source for mechanical, lubrication, chemical, automotive, aerospace, design, aeronautical, plant, power, system, maintenance, manufacturing, heat transfer, and petroleum engineers; tribologists; research and petroleum chemists; lubricant formulators; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
