Over recent years there have been substantial changes in those industries which are concerned with the design, purchase and use of special purpose (ie critical, high-revenue) rotating equipment. Key personnel have been the victims of early retirement or have moved to other industries: contractors and end-users have reduced their technical staff and consequently have to learn complex material 'from scratch'. As a result, many companies are finding that they are devoting unnecessary man hours to the discovery and explanation of basic principles, and having to explain these to clients who should already be aware of them. In addition, the lack of understanding by contractors and users of equipment characteristics and operating systems often results in a 'wrong fit' and a costly reliability problem. Forsthoffer's Rotating Equipment Handbooks: Reliability Optimization through Component Condition Monitoring and Root Cause Analysis details the effective method of component condition monitoring for use as both a predictive maintenance and root cause analysis tool. It also details the major failure causes, the author's proven root cause analysis procedure with exercises and case histories, installation, pre-commissioning planning, functional testing and commissioning, preventive maintenance strategies and more. Forsthoffer's Rotating Equipment Handbooks: Reliability Optimization through Component Condition Monitoring and Root Cause Analysis is the last title in the five volume set. The volumes are: 1. Fundamentals of Rotaing Equipment; 2. Pumps; 3. Compressors; 4. Auxiliary Systems; 5. Reliability Optimization through Component Condition Monitoring and Root Cause Analysis'. Part of a five volume set which is the distillation of many years of on-site training by a well-known US Engineer who also operates in the Middle East A practical book written in a succinct style and well-illustrated throughout

The names Bloch and Geitner are synonymous with machinery maintenance and reliability for process plants. They save companies like Dow and Equilon millions of dollars a year by extending the life of rotating machinery in their plants. Extending the life of existing machinery is the name of the game in the process industries, not designing new machinery. This series by Bloch and Geitner was the first and is still the best, most comprehensive source for doing just that. This classic text on reliability has been revised to include all new material on risk management, pre-grouted bases, laser alignment, cartridge seals maintenance, and many other topics which have undergone many developments since the last revision. Helps engineers save their companies hundreds of thousands of dollars a year by reducing machinery downtime Now in its third edition, with a twenty-year history of success Details the money-saving techniques used by many of the world's leading companies, including Exxon, DuPont, Dow, and dozens of others

As the most important parts of rotating machinery, rotors are also the most prone to mechanical vibrations, which may lead to machine failure. Correction is only possible when proper and accurate diagnosis is obtained through understanding of rotor operation and all of the potential malfunctions that may occur. Mathematical modeling, in particular modal modeling, is key to understanding observed phenomena through measured data and for predicting and preventing failure. Rotordynamics advances simple yet adequate models of rotordynamic problems and phenomena related to rotor operation in its environment. Based on Dr. Muszy(n ́)ska's extensive work at Bently Rotor Dynamics Research Corporation, world renowned for innovative and groundbreaking experiments in the field, this book provides realistic models, step-by-step experimental methods, and the principles of vibration monitoring and practical malfunction diagnostics of rotating machinery. It covers extended rotor models, rotor/fluid-related phenomena, rotor-to-stationary part rubbing, and other related problems such as nonsynchronous perturbation testing. The author also illustrates practical diagnoses of several possible malfunctions and emphasizes correct interpretation of computer-generated numerical results. Rotordynamics is the preeminent guide to rotordynamic theory and practice. It is the most valuable tool available for anyone working on modeling rotating machinery at the machine design stage or performing further analytical and experimental research on rotating machine dynamics.
