Lubrication Degradation – Getting into the Root Causes


Order Your Copy today!

After the first book of Lubrication Degradation Mechanisms - A Complete Guide, Sanya realized that most times, we stop at the physical root causes when investigating failures. She reached out to the veteran in the RCA industry, Bob Latino (Prelical Solutions), whose father was responsible for bringing reliability into the manufacturing & industrial sectors.

Together, they combined their expertise in both Root Cause Analysis and Lubrication Degradation to develop guidelines for each of the six different lubrication degradation mechanisms. This book seeks to guide users into the thought processes involved for failures of this nature and use these processes in other areas of their facility.

An ideal practical book for industry professionals involved with Plant Operations, Engineering, Management, Maintenance, Reliability, and also useful to Technicians.
