Industrial Lubrication and Tribology provides a broad coverage of the materials and techniques employed in tribology. It contains a firm technical news element which brings together and promotes best practice in the three disciplines of tribology which compromise lubrication, wear and friction. It also follows the progress of research into advanced lubricants, bearings, seals, gears and related materials. A review process involving the editor and other subject experts ensures the content's validity and relevance.
The science of industrial machinery lubrication, friction and wear and tear has only recently begun to acquire the status it deserves - yet a grasp of tribology-that is, understanding which lubricants work best in which types of machinery-can have far-reaching effects in areas such as costs, productivity and quality. At anyone time, up to 50% of machinery is at a stand still due to problems related to friction - and when it's your organization bearing the costs of that downtime, you need to know what you can do to reduce such huge potential losses. Industrial Lubrication and Tribology will help you to achieve just that.
The journal places special emphasis on the development of alternatives to finite hydrocarbons, including synthetics, "dry" lubricants and plastics composites. This leading edge material, drawn from both academic and industrial sources, plus a unique rolling programme review of new products and developments, means that Industrial Lubrication and Tribology is a balanced and well-informed resource offering immediate practical advantages to its subscribers.
