Detailing the major developments of the last decade, the Handbook of Hydraulic Fluid Technology, Second Edition updates the original and remains the most comprehensive and authoritative book on the subject. With all chapters either revised (in some cases, completely) or expanded to account for new developments, this book sets itself apart by approaching hydraulic fluids as a component of a system and focusing on key technological aspects.

Written by experts from around the world, the handbook covers all major classes of hydraulic fluids in detail, delving into chemistry, design, fluid maintenance and selection, and other key concepts. It also offers a rigorous overview of hydraulic fluid technology and evaluates the ecological benefits of water and its use as an important alternative technology. This complete overview discusses pumps and motors, valves, and reservoir design, as well as fluid properties and associated topics. These include air entrainment, modulus, lubrication and wear assessment by bench and pump testing, biodegradability, and fire resistance. Contributors also present particularly important material on biodegradable fluids and the use of water as a hydraulic fluid.

As the foremost resource on the design, selection, and testing of hydraulic systems and fluids used in engineering applications, this book contains new illustrations, data tables, and practical examples, all updated with essential information on the latest methods. To streamline presentation, relevant content from the first edition has been integrated into this new version, where appropriate. The result is a reference that helps readers develop an unparalleled understanding of the total hydraulic system, including essential hardware, fluid properties, and hydraulic lubricants.

A-Z Guide for Maximum Cost Reduction and Increased Equipment Reliability

To remain globally competitive, today’s manufacturing operations have greatly improved, but there is one last link in the advancement evolution. The reliability of manufacturing equipment must be improved in order to maximize the productive life of the equipment, eliminate unscheduled shut downs, and reduce operating costs. These are key components to maintaining a smooth work flow and a competitive edge.

Written by peer-recognized industry experts, Lubrication and Maintenance of Industrial Machinery: Best Practices and Reliability provides the necessary tools for maintenance professionals who are responsible for the overall operational functions. With chapters culled from the second edition of the Handbook of Lubrication and Tribology, Volume 1 and a new introductory chapter, this more specialized and focused work supplies critical lubrication information that can be used on a daily basis to achieve greater machine reliability. Incorporating lean methods, this resource can be used by everyone involved in the production process, from supervisors to floor personnel.

Recommended for STLE’s Certified Lubrication Specialist® Certification

In addition to lubrication program development and scheduling, this volume also covers critical elements of the reliability equation, such as:

Deterioration detection and measurement Lubrication cleanliness and contamination control Environmental implications of various lubricants Energy conservation Storage and handling Recycling of used oils

This book fills a niche by specifically and comprehensively focusing on lubrication as part of the overall maintenance program. Under the editorial guidance of two of the most respected names in the field, this seminal work is destined to become an industry standard.
