Lubrication Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Synthetics, Mineral Oils, and Bio-Based Lubricants
Chemistry and Technology
edited by Leslie R. Rudnick

Synthetics, Mineral Oils, and Bio-Based Lubricants contains chapters on all major lubricant fluids used in a wide range of applications.

Features:

  • Considers all the major lubrication areas: engine oils, industrial lubricants, food-grade applications, greases, and space-age applications
  • Contains an index of terms, acronyms, and analytical testing methods
  • Includes the latest conventions for describing upgraded mineral oil base fluids
  • Offers a comprehensive listing and an accompanying CD-ROM of Internet resources for the lubricant industry, including information on companies that provide the materials discussed in the text
  • Features individual chapters on lubricants-such as environmentally friendly, disk drive, and magnetizable fluids-for major market areas around the globe, without having to purchase expensive consultant reviews
