This book broadens readers'' understanding of proactive condition monitoring of low- speed machines in heavy industries. It focuses on why low-speed machines are different than others and how maintenance of these machines should be implemented with particular attention. The authors explain the best available monitoring techniques for various equipment and the principle of how to get proactive information from each technique. They further put forward possible strategies for application of FEM for detection of faults and technical assessment of machinery. Implementation phases are described and industrial case studies of proactive condition monitoring are included.Proactive Condition Monitoring of Low-Speed Machinesis an essential resource for engineers and technical managers across a range of industries as well as design engineers working in industrial product development.
