Just published in its updated fourth edition, this highly regarded text explains in clear terms how and why the best-of-class pump users are consistently achieving superior run lengths, low maintenance expenditures, and unexcelled safety and reliability. Written by practicing engineers whose working careers were marked by involvement in all facets of pumping technology, operation, assessment, upgrading and cost management, this book endeavors to describe in detail how you, too, can accomplish optimum pump performance and low life cycle cost. A new chapter on breaking the cycle of pump repairs examines the cost of failures and the defined operating range of pumps. The authors also explore mechanical issues, deviations from best available technology, and preventing problems with oil rings and constant level lubricators. Additional topics include bearing housing protector seals, best lube application practices, lubrication and bearing distress, and paying for value.

This updated version of one of the most popular and widely used CCPS books provides plant design engineers, facility operators, and safety professionals with key information on selected topics of interest. The book focuses on process safety issues in the design of chemical, petrochemical, and hydrocarbon processing facilities. It discusses how to select designs that can prevent or mitigate the release of flammable or toxic materials, which could lead to a fire, explosion, or environmental damage. Key areas to be enhanced in the new edition include inherently safer design, specifically concepts for design of inherently safer unit operations and Safety Instrumented Systems and Layer of Protection Analysis. This book also provides an extensive bibliography to related publications and topic-specific information, as well as key information on failure modes and potential design solutions.
