Diesel Engines and Electric Power, 3rd ed.
Almost every piece of equipment on a rotary rig needs power to do its job. The diesel engines that provide this power are therefore an integral part of the drilling process that every crew member should know and understand. This comprehensive training manual gives an in-depth look at diesel engines and their operation and maintenance. Other topics include governors; fuel-injection, lubrication, cooling, air-intake, exhaust, and starting systems; instruments such as pyrometers and gauges; alarms; and a helpful overview of electric power and how it is transmitted to the rig components. Readable language and clearly labeled illustrations and photographs help the reader to comprehend the material, as well as a glossary. ISBN 0-88698-169-7. 1998, 248 pp.
