An important volume in the ???Tribology in Practice Series??? (TIPS). Thoroughly updated and revised, Lubrication and Lubricant Selection is a much-welcomed third edition of this established and successful title. Since the publication of the earlier editions of this title there have been important developments in some aspects of lubricant technology, notably in automotive engine lubricants: for example significant improvements in their expected service life and in fuel economy. A major cause of these changes has been the increasing international concern for the environmental impact of all sorts of technologies, not least lubricant technology. Greater public anxiety for safety and the environment has resulted in new legislation governing such subjects as product liability and environmental protection.

This extended and updated edition of Lubrication and Lubricant Selection presents an accurate picture of the current position, particularly with regard to the rapidly changing technical, testing, specification and regulation situation of engine lubricants. The book provides guidance to lubrication practice in industry, with the emphasis on practical application. Specific guidance is given regarding the appropriate selection of lubricants for a wide range of uses. Factors determining the suitability of a lubricant for a particular purpose are described and explained.
