Book Description :

Forsthoffer's Proven Guidelines for Rotating Machinery Excellence draws on Forsthoffer’s 60 years of industry experience to get new operatives up to speed fast. Each of the topics covered are selected based on hard-won knowledge of where problems with rotating machinery originate. This easy to use, highly-illustrated book is designed to elevate the competence of entry level personnel to enable them to immediately contribute to providing optimum rotating machinery reliability for their companies. The first 3 chapters address practical personal rotating machinery awareness, detail how to optimize this awareness to identify "low hanging fruit" safety and reliability improvement opportunities and how to define and implement a cost-effective action plan. The remaining chapters focus on the function of key components in each type of rotating machinery and how to monitor and correct their condition before failure. The last chapter is an RCA (Root Cause Analysis) procedure chapter detailing effective Root Cause Identification before a Failure to prevent a costly failure and the need for a RCFA. Real-life examples are provided from the field of operation and maintenance of rotating machinery, helping readers to implement effectively Includes important advice on monitoring approaches for different types of machines, highlighting differences between working with pumps and compressors A chapter on Root Cause Identification features proven methods to help your organization to prevent machinery failures

Book Description :

'Auxiliary Systems' deals with types, function and application of each major system type (lubrication, control,liquid and gas seal,cooling, buffer gas and pump flush), component selection and design of - reservoirs, pump systems, control valves and instrumentation, coolers/ filters & transfer valves, design audits and troubleshooting of systems and components, maintenance, key reliability indicators, system condition monitoring and much more. 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. The stakes can be high, and it against this background that this book has been published. It is the outcome of many years of Bill Forsthoffer's design, start-up and troubleshooting experience which has resulted in well-honed teaching material which is easily readable, understandable and actually enjoyable! This is a five volume set. The volumes are: 1. Fundamentals of Rotating Equipment 2. Pumps 3. Compressors 4. Auxiliary Systems 5. Reliability Optimization thru Component Condition Monitoring and Root Cause Analysis * One 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.

Book Description :

'Fundamentals of Rotating Equipment' is an overview of the main types of rotating machinery in industry, and covers such aspects as system dynamics, surge control, vibration and balancing, radial bearing design, performance parameters, rotor system design and operation, rotor axial (thrust) forces, performance objectives and mechanical restraints, auxiliary systems and seals. This book will enhance rotating equipment reliability and safety throughout the many industries where such equipment is vital to a successful business.
