FREE: Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

The Practical Handbook of Machinery Lubrication was first authored by Lloyd “Tex” Leugner, president of Maintenance Technology International, Inc. (Alberta, Canada), to provide the industry with a blueprint for lubrication fundamentals.

Robert Scott, a Noria course instructor and 30-year thought leader in the lubrication industry, authored much of the most recent installment of the book, which addresses specific new topics such as oil properties and testing, oil analysis, grease applications, journal bearings, compressors, contamination control, storage and handling, wear and failure mechanisms, and troubleshooting.

“This fourth edition retains the easy-reading nature of the original book. However, the content more closely complements Noria’s Fundamentals of Machinery Lubrication training course and provides critical information to those who might be considering certification,” said Robert Scott, instructor of Noria’s machinery lubrication and oil analysis courses in the U.S. and Canada. “The chapters have been restructured to heighten the focus on reliability and provide further detail on recent changes in industry practices.”

The fourth edition also contains new graphics and illustrations that make the content easier to grasp and implement. The book’s premise validates the relationship between improved lubrication and recognition of root causes to gain a keener understanding of the science of tribology.

The Practical Handbook of Machinery Lubrication is a 220-page paperback that retails for $70 and is available for online purchase through store.noria.com. Author photos and bios are attached.
