New Oil Analysis Handbook
Third edition contains more How To articles and more case studies
It has been more than two years since we published the first edition of the Oil Analysis Handbook. Our original goal was to compile a comprehensive reference book of common in-service oil analysis techniques to help readers understand and choose the right technique and instrumentation for their needs. Each edition brings us closer to this original goal.
In-service oil analysis for condition based maintenance covers a wide array of topics. We reorganized the structure of the content for better clarity and we added articles to cover more topics and instruments associated with oil analysis. Also, we rewrote several articles including the latest developments in the market. As we learned more from our customers about their successes using on-site oil analysis, we developed case studies that you can find in this edition.
Finally, in-service oil analysis technologies have advanced in the past few years. Innovations in new products have brought on-site oil analysis into the hands of reliability professionals and mechanics. Simple analytical tools enable engineers to make maintenance decisions quicker and with more confidence. We are pleased to share the recent developments in this field and look forward to continued progress.
