Maintenance Reliability and Troubleshooting in Rotating Machinery Book Review:

Maintenance, Reliabilty and Troubleshooting in ROTATING MACHINERY This broad collection of current rotating machinery topics, written by industry experts, is a must-have for rotating equipment engineers, maintenance personnel, students, and anyone else wanting to stay abreast with current rotating machinery concepts and technology. Rotating machinery represents a broad category of equipment, which includes pumps, compressors, fans, gas turbines, electric motors, internal combustion engines, and other equipment, that are critical to the efficient operation of process facilities around the world. These machines must be designed to move gases and liquids safely, reliably, and in an environmentally friendly manner. To fully understand rotating machinery, owners must be familiar with their associated technologies, such as machine design, lubrication, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, rotordynamics, vibration analysis, condition monitoring, maintenance practices, reliability theory, and other topics. The goal of the “Advances in Rotating Machinery” book series is to provide industry practitioners a time-savings means of learning about the most up-to-date rotating machinery ideas and best practices. This three-book series will cover industry-relevant topics, such as design assessments, modeling, reliability improvements, maintenance methods and best practices, reliability audits, data collection, data analysis, condition monitoring, and more. Volume one began the series by focusing on design and analysis. Volume two continues the series by covering important machinery reliability concepts and offering practical reliability improvement ideas. Best-in-class production facilities require exceptional machinery reliability performance. In this volume, exceptional machinery reliability is defined as the ability of critical rotating machines to consistently perform as designed, without degradation or failure, until their next scheduled overhaul. Readers will find this volume chock-full of practical ideas they can use to improve the reliability and efficiency of their machinery. Maintenance, Reliability and Troubleshooting in Rotating Machinery covers, among many other topics: General machinery reliablity advice Understanding failure data Design audits and improvement ideas Maintenace best practices Analyzing failures

Meeting the Pump Users Needs Book Review:

Meeting the Pump Users Needs is a documentation of the 12th International Pump Technical Conference. Pump makers have always understood that their equipment provides an essential service to the pump users. Pumps have been designed and built to satisfy the needs of the user. The main thrust of this book is to share between users, specifiers, and makers their knowledge and experiences leading to better understanding of what the user needs now and would like for the future, and what the designer/maker can provide now and may be able to offer for the future. This book also describes an unusual method of calculating a head generated across a multistage pump when the impeller diameters are changed. The method leads to significantly larger calculated changes of head than predicted from the conventional affinity law approach. This text is a useful reference and source of information for engineering students and those conducting research on pump manufacturing.

Mechanical Seals Book Review:

Mechanical Seals, Third Edition is a source of practical information on the design and use of mechanical seals. Topics range from design fundamentals and test rigs to leakage, wear, friction and power, reliability, and special designs. This text is comprised of nine chapters; the first of which gives a general overview of seals, including various types of seals and their applications. Attention then turns to the fundamentals of seal design, with emphasis on six requirements that must be considered: sealing effectiveness, length of life, reliability, power consumption, space requirements, and cost effectiveness. The next chapter is devoted to test rigs used to establish the effect of the various seal parameters on the behavior of face seals. Special test rigs used to establish leakage, wear, friction losses, and temperature distributions for various material combinations, rubbing speeds, pressures, fluid media, and temperatures are highlighted. The following chapters explain primary leakage through the seal gap between the faces of the seals; factors that contribute to seal wear; friction and power of a mechanical seal; relationship of leakage to wear and friction of a balanced face seal; and importance of seal reliability and operating safety. The final chapter explores particularly interesting sealing problems together with the use of special accessories such as heat exchangers; magnetic and cyclone separators; and techniques such as cooling and auxiliary circulation. This book will be useful to mechanical engineers as well as seal designers and seal users.

Rubber Product Failure Book Review:

Rubber components are used in many demanding applications, from tyres and seals to gloves and medical devices, and failure can be catastrophic. This review of Rubber Product Failure outlines and illustrates the common causes of failure, while addressing ways of avoiding it. There has been increasing pressure to improve performance so that rubbers can be used at higher temperatures and in harsher environments. For example, the under-the-bonnet temperature has increased in some vehicles and new medical devices require longer lifetimes in potentially degrading biological fluids. The expectations of tyre performance in particular are increasing, and retreads have been in the spotlight for failures. The definition of failure depends on the application. For example, a racing car engine seal that lasts for one race may be acceptable, but in a normal car a life span of 10 years is more reasonable. If appearance is critical as in surface coatings and paints, then discolouration is failure, whilst in seals leakage is not acceptable. Each rubber product must be fit for the use specified by the consumer. Failure analysis is critical to product improvement. the cause of the problem can be much harder to find. It can range from a design fault to poor material selection, to processing problems, to manufacturing errors such as poor dimensional tolerances, to poor installation, product abuse and unexpected service conditions. The rubber technologist must become a detective, gathering evidence, understanding the material type and using deductive reasoning. Testing and analysis of failed materials and components add to the information available for failure analysis. For example, stored aged tyres appeared superficially to be alright for use, but on drum testing small cracks grew more quickly than in new tyres leading to rapid failure in service. Quality control procedures such as product inspection, testing and material quality checks can help to reach 100 percent reliability. In critical applications such as electricians' gloves for high voltage working, gloves are inspected before each use, while engine seals may be routinely replaced before the expected lifetime to avoid problems. in the literature is not high. However, several reviews have been written on specific products and references can be found at the end of this review. Around 400 abstracts from papers in the Polymer Library are included with an index. Subjects covered include tyre wear and failure, seals, engine components, rubber bonding failure, rubber failure due to chloramine in water, tank treads, gloves and condoms, medical devices and EPDM roofing membranes.
