Fluid Analysis for Mobile Equipment

Diego Navarro, Blaine Ballentine, Michael D. Holloway

$89.95

2023-10-05

          Welcome to the wonderful, practical world of fluid analysis utilization.
 
          There are plenty of labs around the world processing millions of oil, coolant, and fuel samples every year. Most of them do very professional work, however, the data received from them usually fall into two main categories: 1). The information is incomplete for a true machine health assessment, or; 2). At the user’s end, nobody is acting on the information at a level that would allow good, proactive maintenance activity. The sad truth is that very few companies make use of the valuable information contained in fluids.

          This work, Fluid Analysis for Mobile Equipment, supports all activity around fluid analysis so managers can lay a more solid foundation for maintenance. It serves as a major contribution to both the science and art of fluid analysis, and is destined to become the cornerstone of every successful condition-based maintenance program.

          The examples and recommendations will have direct application to implement a true predictive maintenance program. More than 100 examples come from real-life cases, and reflect what many fleet managers encounter in their daily challenges.
 
Unique Features
  • For the maintenance manager, the work offers all the information needed to implement a world-class condition-based maintenance program, and understand the complexities of fluid analysis.
  • For the technical expert in oil analysis, the authors offer an exceptional depth in the subject and present insights gained from more than 85 years of combined on-the-job experience.
  • For technical experts wanting to expand their knowledge of fluid analysis to include the critically important area of coolants, fuel, and DEF (diesel exhaust fuel), this is the resource.
  • Includes a Foreword from Mike Vorster, CE, MBA, Ph.D., the esteemed David H. Burrows Professor Emeritus at Virginia Tech, where he taught in the Construction Engineering and Management Program since 1986.

The CNC Handbook

Hans Bernhard Kief, Helmut A. Roschiwal, Karsten Schwarz

$109.95

2021-12-01

Digital manufacturing is everywhere. Technology advances in production engineering have reduced the “artisan skill” traditionally required in manufacturing processes and replaced it with high-precision, computer-controlled machinery. This reduces human errors and variability in output, but it does not reduce the knowledge required of the professional engineer or shop floor worker. In fact, the reverse is true. They still need to understand the fundamentals, and must acquire other important skills.  
 
Anyone who works in machining or additive manufacturing technology must have a solid technical knowledge of CNC technology. It is important to know how the individual components work and how they affect the overall system, the quality of the products produced and the profitability of production. Professionals should be familiar with today's machine tools and the numerous functions of CNC, electrical servo drives, tool systems, NC programming through to digital information processing and automation.

The CNC Handbook was a critically acclaimed bestseller in Germany for 30 editions, and is now available in English for the first time. This groundbreaking work introduces readers to the CNC world, and teaches practical details about how different components are applied in practice. Next, the authors explain the functions and connections of all integrated components, and clearly describe CNC and drives, tooling, flexible manufacturing systems (FMS), NC-programming, DNC, digital manufacturing, Industry 4.0 and computer integrated manufacturing (CIM). The book then covers industrial robots, additive manufacturing, energy-efficient manufacturing, simulation systems, and state-of-the-art of machine integrated measuring systems. This authoritative, heavily illustrated book is the perfect resource for the avid CNCer, but also for those who plan and program, set up, operate machinery, or are responsible for operation, maintenance and repair.

Features
  • Packed with more than 800 figures, 4-color pictures, and product shots. 
  • Authors use their more than 150 combined years of industrial and academic experience to impart CNC knowledge.

2022-11-21

Because many companies expend so few resources on training, new engineers, technicians, and analysts are often ill-prepared to tackle real-world problems and produce real-world solutions. And when it comes to large, expensive machinery, every minute of downtime can translate into the loss of millions of dollars.
Rotating Machinery Reliability for Technicians and Engineers is a compilation of those problems encountered daily by large manufacturers, delving deep into machinery fault analysis, with a concentration on vibration, bearings, and electrical issues that cause large problems. The work contains more than 50 case studies with the actual data and solutions, along with industry standards and best practices, covering what works, and perhaps more importantly, what doesn’t work—all the result of the author’s 45+ years in the field. It features a chapter on diagnosing and solving electric discharge machining damage in ball bearings. 
Rounding out the incredible package is an affiliated website, www.rotatingmachinereliability.com, with invaluable resources for the technician and engineer:
  • On-the-job videos, detailing exact specifications for analysis and troubleshooting.
  • Spreadsheets for designing dynamic absorbers, estimating thermal growth, and calculating steel balance weight and weight removal
  • Technical white papers on the elimination of electrical discharge damage and designing rotating machinery foundations
  • Directions for implementing the latest technology using amplified motion to quantify operation deflection shapes.
Advanced Praise for the Book…
  • This is the book I wish I had when I started in the industry.”
  • “Hands-down the best work I’ve ever seen, making difficult concepts easy to understand, and offering tremendous value to beginners and experienced techs/engineers alike.”
  • “A must-read for anyone involved in rotating equipment reliability, especially new technicians.”
  • “A wonderful, helpful tool that has helped my team understand how to troubleshoot vibration issues in the field.”
  • Shows how analysts of 5 or 50 years in the field can help themselves in their approach to investigating potential issues in plant machinery.”

Why Industrial Bearings Fail

Kirshna Murty

$94.95

2022-08-03

            A bearing is a common machine element used to constrain motion and reduce friction between moving parts. Bearings are used extensively in global industries, including automotive, construction, power generation, mechanical, chemical, mining, infrastructure, medical, food, etc. The estimated bearing market was valued at $128 billion in 2021, and expected to increase to nearly $227 billion by 2028.
            Unfortunately, sometimes bearings fail, and often at the most inopportune time. This is a source of great concern and expense to users, causing downtime and the loss of millions in damages, outages, and lack of productivity. While modern precision manufacturing and maintenance practices have reduced some of the premature failure, they haven’t addressed many of the core problems that lead to bearing failure.
            This work presents a collection of different case studies in a multitude of industries where bearings have failed, and includes a failure description, observations, possible reasons for the failure, plausible cause and effect, and then discusses what might have been done to mitigate the problem and, when possible, provides solutions to prevent further failures. The author uses root cause failure analysis and explores such topics as alignment, lubrication, manufacturing defects, mounting practices, contamination, and fatigue. He then explains how one or a combination of these issues worked together to cause the failure, and offers preventive solutions to avoid future problems.
 
Features
Throughout the book, a classical RCFA approach is used for each case study, using a nine-step analysis with solutions:
  1. Define the problem
  2. Get information and input from various sources
  3. Locate the evidence
  4. Look for the mistakes
  5. Ishikawa / Fishbone Diagram
  6. Getting to the roots
  7. Solutions
  8. Create plans to implement the solution
  9. Monitor the solution and confirm if it works
