Maintenance Fundamentals includes modules that provide the practical knowledge required to effectively select, install, maintain, and troubleshoot critical plant machinery, equipment, and systems. Topics covered include shaft alignment, bearings, couplings and clutches, flexible intermediate drives, gears and gear drives, lubrication, packing and seals, and rotor balancing.

This is the first book in a new series published by Butterworth-Heinemann in association with PLANT ENGINEERING magazine. PLANT ENGINEERING fills a unique information need for the men and women who operate and maintain industrial plants: It bridges the information gap between engineering education and practical application. As technology advances at increasingly faster rates, this information service is becoming more and more important. Since its first issue in 1947, PLANT ENGINEERING has stood as the leading problem-solving information source for America's industrial plant engineers, and this book series will effectively contribute to that resource and reputation.

Keith Mobley is president and CEO of Integrated Systems Inc. of Knoxville, Tenn., which is also his city of residence. He has written numerous publications on such topics as plant performance, maintenance engineering, maintenance management and predictive maintenance.
