A highly practical troubleshooting tool for today's complex processing industry Evolving industrial technology-driven by the need to increase safety while reducing production losses-along with environmental factors and legal concerns has resulted in an increased emphasis on sound troubleshooting techniques and documentation. Analytical Troubleshooting of Process Machinery and Pressure Vessels provides both students and engineering professionals with the tools necessary for understanding and solving equipment problems in today's complex processing environment. Drawing on forty years of industrial experience in the petrochemical, transportation, and component manufacturing industries, the author introduces analytical models that utilize simple mathematics to provide engineers with the information needed to understand equipment operation and failure modes. This will allow engineering professionals to talk intelligibly with manufacturers, implement modifications required for continued operation, and ultimately help them save millions of dollars in lost production or warranty claims. Readers will find in-depth coverage of factors that can cause equipment failure, including: * Component wear and fretting * Vibration of machines and piping * Instabilities and sizing of pumps and compressors * Thermal loads and stresses * Gear, bearing, shafting, and coupling loading * Corrosion and materials of construction By striking a balance between analytical and practical considerations, each potential problem area is illustrated with case studies taken from the author's own extensive experience and accompanied by methods that can be used to address a variety of related challenges.

Just published in its updated fourth edition, this highly regarded text explains in clear terms how and why the best-of-class pump users are consistently achieving superior run lengths, low maintenance expenditures, and unexcelled safety and reliability. Written by practicing engineers whose working careers were marked by involvement in all facets of pumping technology, operation, assessment, upgrading and cost management, this book endeavors to describe in detail how you, too, can accomplish optimum pump performance and low life cycle cost. A new chapter on breaking the cycle of pump repairs examines the cost of failures and the defined operating range of pumps. The authors also explore mechanical issues, deviations from best available technology, and preventing problems with oil rings and constant level lubricators. Additional topics include bearing housing protector seals, best lube application practices, lubrication and bearing distress, and paying for value.
