While it is mostly “behind the scenes,” lubrication is used wherever you look—in all types of
machines, vehicles, and aircrafts. Its usefulness is everywhere, in every industry, from all
types of manufacturing, power, health, petrochemicals, food, paper, and metallurgy to small
industries and agriculture. Lubrication is absolutely essential to the world.
There is an undeniable link between maintenance strategy and lubrication reliability. Depending
on the industry, maintenance costs can represent between 15-60% of the cost of goods produced.
Therefore, the reliability of plant and equipment has a significant impact on the profits of any
organization. Unfortunately, most problems related to machinery in plants are
lubrication-related. To get maximum benefit from advanced maintenance strategies, an
understanding of equipment lubrication is a must. That’s why this work is invaluable.
Machinery Lubrication and Reliability contains everything a maintenance, plant, or industrial
professional needs to know about lubrication theory, with vital information on all the critical
equipment lubrication requirements. It illustrates how to improve reliability, maximize
equipment life, eliminate unscheduled shut downs, and reduce operating costs.
