Research and Markets: Practical Lubrication for Industrial Industries, 2nd Edition

Now completely revised and updated, this book provides those who select and apply lubricants with a comprehensive resource on what products are available, and which lubricants are most effective for specific applications. This new edition expands on the issues of lubricant applications by oil rings (slinger rings) and the elusive problems that often result, and adds a major segment on bearing protector products. The full spectrum of industrial lubricants are addressed, including general purpose oils, hydraulic fluids, food-grade and environmentally friendly lubricants, synthetic lubricants, greases, pastes, waxes and tribosystems. Also examined are lubrication strategies for electric motor bearings, gears, compressors, gas engines and turbines, along with proper lubricant handling and storage, and effective oil analysis.
