About this title
As indicated in its title, Optimized Equipment Lubrication, Oil Mist Technology and Storage Preservation, this extremely and unusually user-friendly book addresses lubrication issues from the vantage point of three experts. With well over 130 years of combined industry experience to their credit, their laser-sharp focus is on optimally applying lubricant to all kinds of general purpose machines. These include process pumps, electric motors and other equipment incorporating rolling element bearing where traditional methods are usually very much out of step with best available practices.
Because oil mist lubrication and large-scale oil mist preservation are extensively used by best-in-class (BIC) user companies, these BICs have long profited from high asset reliability and unparalleled maintenance cost avoidance. In addition to giving previously unavailable statistics, the book describes the methods and procedures employed in these successful pursuits. The text describes and details many cost justification calculations used by BICs, and directs the reader's attention to the remarkably low rates of random or repeat failures experienced at these facilities.
