Cover for the book Diesel Engines and Electric Power 3rd Revised

This publication is Lesson 8 of Unit 1 of the Rotary Drilling Series (RDS)

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. A glossary, index, and review questions are included. ISBN 0-88698-169-7. 2015, 256 pp.

Spanish Language 2nd Edition also available
