- How to protect your rolling element bearings.
The behaviour of a nonlinear rolling-element bearing often demonstrates unexpected patterns that are extremely sensitive to initial parameters and conditions. The effect of rolling-element bearing parameters (such as the internal radial clearance and the preload) on the machinery vibrations is investigated in this article.
- How to choose the right pump for your industrial plant
What steps should you take to pick the right pump for your plant? Amin Almasi explains.
- A review of failures in machineries: Why your machines fail and how you can stop it
This paper reviews some case studies for failures in machineries. Failure modes in machineries, resonance issues, fatigue failures, the chain of events and the secondary damage to critical systems are discussed. Two important case studies are presented.
- The ins and outs of grease: Choosing the best way to lubricate your machinery
In general, “grease” is a solid to semi-fluid product that consists of a dispersion of a thickening agent in a liquid lubricant. The greases are widely used for the lubrication of modern machineries. In this article different greases and their applications for machineries are discussed.
