Process Plant Equipment. Operation, Control, and Reliability
A round-the-clock operation of heavy equipment in harsh, gritty conditions is the nature of the coal mining and production business. Equipment failure is not an option for an industry that services customers around the world. Some of the components cost hundreds of thousands of dollars each and production downtime losses can be immeasurable. Figure 1: Equipment failure is not an option in surface mining operations. Reliability has long been in focus at one surface operation in the U.

The productivity of these investments is a fundamental element of competition among companies and nations. Events that slow or interrupt the manufacturing process or degrade the product impair the competitiveness of a manufacturing enterprise. The term equipment reliability and maintenance ERM encompasses not only equipment, such as machines, tools, and fixtures, but also the technical, operational, and management activities, ranging from equipment specifications to daily operation and maintenance, required to sustain the performance of manufacturing equipment throughout its useful life. This chapter addresses all causes of diminished or degraded output. The panel considers ERM to be a significant factor in the competitiveness of manufacturing firms, an assessment supported by the case studies in the section on present practice pp.
Reliability Engineering Principles for the Plant Engineer
Ronald Frend X MR. He rose to a senior position in Shell International Middle East before opening a worldwide engineering consultancy based in England and a senior position in a global training enterprise. His entire career has been concerned with practical applications of maintenance and engineering from a solid business foundation. Ron is experienced in a variety of maintenance analytical techniques as well as possessing management skills suitable to a large multi-national corporation working in the oil and gas industry. Ron has also undergone specialized training on the following topics: management techniques, non-destructive testing, oil tanker cargo operations, instrumentation and control, resistance and gas welding, vibration analysis, infrared thermography, and ultrasonics.
Increasingly, managers and engineers who are responsible for manufacturing and other industrial pursuits are incorporating a reliability focus into their strategic and tactical plans and initiatives.
Reliability Engineering History
With this book as their guide, readers have the information and practical guidelines needed to select, operate, maintain, control, and troubleshoot process plant equipment so that it is efficient, cost-effective, and reliable throughout its lifetime. Following the authors' careful explanations and instructions, readers will find that they are better able to reduce downtime and unscheduled shutdowns, streamline operations, and maximize the service life of processing equipment. Process Plant Equipment: Operation, Control, and Reliability is divided into three sections: Section One: Process Equipment Operations covers such key equipment as valves, pumps, cooling towers, conveyors, and storage tanks Section Two: Process Plant Reliability sets forth a variety of tested and proven tools and methods to assess and ensure the reliability and mechanical integrity of process equipment, including failure analysis, Fitness-for-Service assessment, engineering economics for chemical processes, and process component function and performance criteria Section Three: Process Measurement, Control, and Modeling examines flow meters, process control, and process modeling and simulation Throughout the book, numerous photos and diagrams illustrate the operation and control of key process equipment. There are also case studies demonstrating how actual process plants have implemented the tools and techniques discussed in the book. At the end of each chapter, an extensive list of references enables readers to explore each individual topic in greater depth. In summary, this text offers students, process engineers, and plant managers the expertise and technical support needed to streamline and optimize the operation of process plant equipment, from its initial selection to operations to troubleshooting.
Con permiso! - крикнул санитар. Мимо стремительно проплыла каталка. Беккер успел отскочить в сторону и окликнул санитара. - Dоnde esta el telefono. Не снижая скорости, мужчина указал Беккеру на двустворчатую дверь и скрылся за поворотом. Беккер последовал в указанном направлении.
Беккер застонал и начал выбираться из расписанного краской из баллончиков зала. Он оказался в узком, увешанном зеркалами туннеле, который вел на открытую террасу, уставленную столами и стульями. На террасе тоже было полно панков, но Беккеру она показалась чем-то вроде Шангри-Ла: ночное летнее небо над головой, тихие волны долетающей из зала музыки. Не обращая внимания на устремленные на него любопытные взгляды десятков пар глаз, Беккер шагнул в толпу. Он ослабил узел галстука и рухнул на стул у ближайшего свободного столика.
