This Publication has been developed in order to aid those operating ageing rotating equipment. The guide outlines a condition based maintenance methodology for finding deterioration mechanisms. Additionally, it details the appropriate regular service and inspection regime, which is still the principal means of identifying age related modes of failure. Where possible, appropriate mitigation steps are described. The contents of this guide have been written for and by engineers in the petrochemical, process and power industries. The specific equipment covered in the Publication scope are pumps, fans, compressors, generators, motors, gearboxes and certain types of turbine. Users may determine that equipment not listed here is suitable to fall under the scope of EEMUA 230. However, this is done at the user's discretion.
