A valuable reference, Pump User's Handbook: Life Extension explains just how and why the best-of-class pump users are consistently achieving superior run lengths, low maintenance expenditures, and unexcelled safety and reliability. The book conveys, in detail, what must be done to rapidly accomplish best-of-class performance and low life cycle cost. Simply put, the text explains what exactly needs to be done if a facility wants to progress from being a one, two, or three year pump MTBF plant, and wishes to join the leading money-making facilities that today achieve a demonstrated pump MTBF of 8.6 years. Written by two practicing engineers whose combined 80-year working career included all conceivable facets of pumping technology, book provides experience-based details, data, guidance, direction, explanations, and firm recommendations. Implementing what this text explains will allow a plant to move from yesterday's demonstrably unprofitable and costly repair focus to tomorrow's absolutely necessary reliability focus.
