Providing both sophisticated and simplified solutions to facility maintenance problems for plant engineers, facilities engineers and managers, and maintenance engineers, this revised and updated fifth edition discusses every aspect of maintenance engineering from new technical advances to maintaining new machinery. All kinds of facilities are described, including generating plants, refineries, hospitals, schools and universities, and office buildings. The handbook also includes effective ways to use computers to manage maintenance procedures for machinery, physical plants and fixed support service. While the entire handbook has been revised (it now contains approximately 40% new material), special attention is given to lubrication, vibration analysis, instrumentation, industrial chemical cleaning, corrective and predictive maintenance, computerized stores control and arc and gas welding. The issues discussed by the 55 specialists include: operating policies, reports and staffing procedures; establishing costs and controls; computer applications; maintenance of plant facilities; sanitation and housekeeping; maintenance of mechanical equipment; instruments and vibration; maintenance of electrical and service equipment; and chemical corrosion control and cleaning. The handbook offers practical information, data, procedures and ideas on every major aspect of maintenance.
