The subject of lubrication is very broad and is evolving continuously with new technologies and developments as time passed by. Some of the things that have been written and published are now by-gone and obsolete. While most maintenance and lubrications people I know are not educated properly on lubrication, most of their decision on which lubricant to use and when to change it is based most often from OEM recommendations. The purpose of writing this book on Lubrication Tactics for Industries Made simple is to provide the maintenance people and the lubricant users in industries an easy to understand and straightforward approach to lubrication that they can adapt easily in their plant. The costs of lubricants in any industry only tell us one side of the story since we are only talking about the cost of lubricants spent on the equipment. The much higher cost can be seen in the number of breakdowns and failures encountered daily caused by incorrect practices and myths on lubrication. The costs of failures attributed to lubrication is a minimum of 2 folds the costs of lubricants that you consumed in the equipment. This means that if you are a heavy user of lubrication, such as a mining industry whose cost of lubricants is 100,000 USD a month, multiply this by a minimum of two and that will be the costs of failures attributed to lubrication failures. Contamination is the main problem on lubrication and it has always been there in the equipment and it comes not only in solid form but in liquid and air (bubbles). The author believes that the more contamination present in lubricating oil, then the more chances that failures happen, not only in hydraulics but in all lubricating systems and what we can do about it. Whether your industry is a large consumer or not of lubricants, there are way too many problems experienced by maintenance people regarding lubrication. Here are some of the most common problems industries are experiencing right now in today's operations. We have problems with bearing failures, oil leakage, lack of procedure, human errors of mixing lubricants, wrong or obsolete procedures on lubrication, spillages, over lubrication, under lubrication, abrasion, oil contamination problems, premature failures, improper storage of new lubricants, grease incompatibility issues, high lubrication costs, guesstimate on greasing interval, lack of knowledge, cost-cutting schemes on lubrication training, and you name it. I'm pretty sure there are more besides these lists. This book contains 12 chapters, and each chapter is summarized and intended to help industries find the key on how to manage their lubrication. Some of the highlights that is covered in this book includes the following: - Why There is No Lubrication Engineering Course in College?- Selecting the Correct Lubricating Oil for the Equipment- Can We Mixed Different Grades and Brands of SAE Engine Oil?- Grease Incompatibility Issue- Advantages of Synthetic Oil over Petroleum Oil- Frequently Asked Questions on Synthetic Oil- Different Viscosity Grades for Industrial Lubricants- Does Lubricating Oil Really Wear Out?- Six Myths About Lubrication- Ten Strategies to Adapt to Lubrication and Contamination Control- Why is the Study of Tribology Important to Industries?- Why Lubrication Failures Repeat Itself- Benefits of Oil Analysis- Why Do Oil Analysis Program Fail in Some Industries?- Tips in Conducting Oil Analysis- Lubrication Tactics on Lubricating Oil- Lubrication Tactics on Oil Contamination Control (Code)- Lubrication Tactics on Greasing- Steps on Adopting a Lubrication Strategy It is my hope that this book reached out to industries in search of improving their overall lubrication strategy and benefit from the process.
The global lubricants market exceeds $110 billion, with strong future-estimated annual growth projections.

This first part of the 20 chapters of the book consists of information written by Cemil Koyunoğlu in his spare time between the years of 2015-2016 at the Istanbul Technical University, where he went to work for his doctoral dissertation. Only the first 6 chapters of the author's document have been technical edited by SAE International employee William Kucinski. I would like to thank Mônica Nogueira, William Kucinski and Mark P. DeAngelo for their help. Azerbaijan's Nargin Island was one of the places where Ottoman soldiers were captured during World War I. On the 101st anniversary of the Sarıkamış operation, a group from Kars was visited by the martyrs. Turkish pilot Vecihi Hürkuş was among those captured in the island.
Strategies of Industrial and Hazardous Waste Management by Nelson L. Nemerow and Frank J. Agardy For years, plant engineers, engineering professors, municipal engineers, EPA personnel, and other professionals have relied on the expertise of these authors in the area of industrial and hazardous waste management. This book is full of new ideas, methods, models, data, updated information, and new case histories. This latest classic reference from Nelson Nemerow and Frank Agardy is by far the most comprehensive and useful source available on the generation, treatment, and disposal of all significant industrial and hazardous wastes. Strategies of Industrial and Hazardous Waste Management addresses the needs of its wide-ranging audience by dividing its coverage into four parts: Part I presents the basic information the industrial waste engineer needs to know about the environmental impact of various wastes, writing environmental impact statements, protecting streams from further pollution, calculating final treatments, testing treatment efficiency, and the influence of economic factors on waste treatment decisions. Part II explores theories and designs of waste treatment, and shows how waste can be reduced through proper operation of manufacturing plants. It ranges beyond the removal of suspended and colloidal solids to include coverage of neutralization, equalization and proportioning, removal of inorganic dissolved salts, and private contract collection and treatment. Also included is a novel paradigm for obtaining zero pollution in the future through environmentally balanced industrial complexes. Part III demonstrates waste management in action, using case studies from around the world to show theories and models successfully adapted and put into practice. All cases are based on the authors' actual experiences--the cases in Chapters 17, 19, 22, 23, and 24 have never been previously published. Part IV offers concise evaluations of all major liquid Industrial wastes, including their origins, characteristics, and acceptable treatments. Industries are classified into six categories: apparel, food processing, materials, chemicals, energy, and (in significantly extended coverage) non-point practices. Included are separate considerations of radioactive and hazardous (as opposed to conventional) waste. No waste-management professional should be without this essential volume. Focused on need-to-know information, common pitfalls, and practical solutions to all kinds of problems, Strategies of Industrial and Hazardous Waste Management is an answer source unlike any other.
