This updated edition is an invaluable
source of practical cost-effective maintenance, repair, installation, and field
verification procedures for machinery engineers.
It is filled with step-by-step
instructions and quick-reference checklists that describe preventive and
predictive maintenance for major process units such as vertical, horizontal,
reciprocating, and liquid ring vacuum pumps, fans and blowers, compressors, turboexpanders,
turbines, and more.
Also included are sections on machinery
protection, storage, lubrication, and periodic monitoring.
A new section examines centrifugal pumps
and explains how and why they continue to fail.
More new information focuses on maintenance for
aircraft derivative gas turbines.
This revised edition gives special attention
throughout to maintenance and repair procedures needed to ensure efficiency,
performance, and long life.
