This totally updated and expanded edition provides proven techniques and procedures that extend machinery life, reduce maintenance costs, and achieve optimum machinery reliability. This essential text clearly describes the reliability improvement and failure avoidance steps practiced by qbest-of-classq process plants in the U.S. and Europe. All new material focuses on: availability and reliability statistics for major machinery categories, benchmarking data, guidance for relevant life cycle cost studies, electric motor reliability, modern sealing technology, and synthetic lubricants. A highly relevant and detailed appendix provides a comparison of the reliability impact of qgoodq vs. qbetterq vs. qbestq approaches. It compares these different approaches in practices such as pump alignment, operation, installation, and component selection.This essential text clearly describes the reliability improvement and failure avoidance steps practiced by aquot;best-of-classaquot; process plants in the U.S. and Europe.
