Lubrication and Reliability Handbook

This handbook will assist engineers in industry with the operation and maintenance of machinery. I it provides the information needed in a form that is instantly accessible and easy to read.

The manufacturers of machinery give guidelines on the operation, lubrication and maintenance required for their particular equipment. There are, however, many different machines in an industrial plant or service organization, often supplied by many different manufacturers, and there is a need to rationalise lubricants to a minimum number of different grades, and to use related maintenance and monitoring  techniques.

This book will bridge the gap which exists between the available data on various machines by providing overall guidance on how to co-ordinate the recommendations of the various equipment makers.

  • Lubricants. 
  • lubrication of components.
  • lubrication systems.
