New Book for Process Operators Published by AuthorHouse

AuthorHouse Publishing has published a new book titled Operator’s Guide to Rotating Equipment (An introduction to rotating equipment construction, operating principles, troubleshooting, and best practices).  The book was written by Julien LeBleu and Robert Perez.

Every operator who is responsible for monitoring critical rotating equipment will greatly benefit from this handy reference book. The goal of this book is to present proven techniques that will enable rookie and veteran operators alike to detect problems early and eliminate major outages and/or maintenance costs.  To achieve this goal, LeBleu and Perez explain the basics of lubrication systems, bearings, drivers, seals and sealing systems, for centrifugal and positive displacement pumps as well as turbines, centrifugal compressors and reciprocating compressors.  The authors go on to present common sense inspection methods for centrifugal and positive displacement pumps, gear boxes, motors, heat exchangers, and turbines.

The book is now available for purchase at Amazon.com, Barnes and Nobles, and Authorhouse.com.
