Practical Plant Failure Analysis Book Description :

Component failures result from a combination of factors involving materials science, mechanics, thermodynamics, corrosion, and tribology. With the right guidance, you don’t have to be an authority in all of these areas to become skilled at diagnosing and preventing failures. Based on the author’s more than thirty years of experience, Practical Plant Failure Analysis: A Guide to Understanding Machinery Deterioration and Improving Equipment Reliability is a down-to-earth guide to improving machinery maintenance and reliability. Illustrated with hundreds of diagrams and photographs, this book examines... · When and how to conduct a physical failure analysis · Basic material properties including heat treating mechanisms, work hardening, and the effects of temperature changes on material properties · The differences in appearance between ductile overload, brittle overload, and fatigue failures · High cycle fatigue and how to differentiate between high stress concentrations and high operating stresses · Low cycle fatigue and unusual fatigue situations · Lubrication and its influence on the three basic bearing designs · Ball and roller bearings, gears, fasteners, V-belts, and synchronous belts Taking a detailed and systematic approach, Practical Plant Failure Analysis thoroughly explains the four major failure mechanisms—wear, corrosion, overload, and fatigue—as well as how to identify them. The author clearly identifies how these mechanisms appear in various components and supplies convenient charts that demonstrate how to identify the specific causes of failure.

Maintenance Strategy Book Description :

Devising optimal strategy for maintaining industrial plant can be a difficult task of daunting complexity. This book aims to provide the plant engineer with a comprehensive and systematic approach, a framework of guidelines, for tackling this problem, i.e. for deciding maintenance objectives, formulating equipment life plans and plant maintenance schedules, designing the maintenance organisation and setting up appropriate systems of documentation and control. The author, Anthony Kelly, an experienced international consultant and lecturer on this subject, calls his approach BUSINESS-CENTRED MAINTENANCE (BCM) because it springs from, and is driven by, the identification of business objectives, which are then translated into maintenance objectives and which underpin the maintenance strategy formulation. For the first time maintenance management is analysed from the perspective of the whole company and thus makes sense not only technologically but also in economic and business terms. Complete guide to maintenance from a whole-company perspective Best-selling and world-renowned author Complementary to RCM (Moubray) and TPM (Wilmott)

Plant Engineer s Handbook Book Description :

Plant engineers are responsible for a wide range of industrial activities, and may work in any industry. This means that breadth of knowledge required by such professionals is so wide that previous books addressing plant engineering have either been limited to only certain subjects or cursory in their treatment of topics. The Plant Engineering Handbook offers comprehensive coverage of an enormous range of subjects which are of vital interest to the plant engineer and anyone connected with industrial operations or maintenance. This handbook is packed with indispensable information, from defining just what a Plant Engineer actually does, through selection of a suitable site for a factory and provision of basic facilities (including boilers, electrical systems, water, HVAC systems, pumping systems and floors and finishes) to issues such as lubrication, corrosion, energy conservation, maintenance and materials handling as well as environmental considerations, insurance matters and financial concerns. One of the major features of this volume is its comprehensive treatment of the maintenance management function; in addition to chapters which outline the operation of the various plant equipment there is specialist advice on how to get the most out of that equipment and its operators. This will enable the reader to reap the rewards of more efficient operations, more effective employee contributions and in turn more profitable performance from the plant and the business to which it contributes. The Editor, Keith Mobley and the team of expert contributors, have practiced at the highest levels in leading corporations across the USA, Europe and the rest of the world. Produced in association with Plant Engineering magazine, this book will be a source of information for plant engineers in any industry worldwide. * A Flagship reference work for the Plant Engineering series * Provides comprehensive coverage on an enormous range of subjects vital to plant and industrial engineer * I

Simplifying Mining Maintenance Book Description :

In the world of mining, both mining and asset management professionals often face difficult challenges to improve plant and fleet reliability or cost. Over the years the mining industry has developed complicated systems and processes to deal with the seemingly complex problems, but in the real world of maintenance, to be truly effective, organizations must first embed the practical, culture-based routines that simplify work so that large groups of people can align and become effective. After more than thirty years in mining, Gerard Wood has experienced firsthand the persistent maintenance problems that can occur. Throughout these years he has developed effective methods for solving the common problems by developing the required culture of ownership and care that will ensure reliable, low-cost equipment performance. In Simplifying Mining Maintenance, he presents two simple models for reliable maintenance management, as well as actionable solutionsto common problems causing unscheduled downtime events, increased scheduled downtime, cost concerns, people problems, and poor transition from projects to operations. Having the best maintenance organization in the world is possible--by getting back to basics with simple, culture-focused routines that people can understand and implement to ensure sustainable equipment performance.
