Flow of Industrial Fluids

To describe the flow of industrial fluids, the technical literature generally takes either a highly theoretical, specialized approach that can make extracting practical information difficult, or highly practical one that is too simplified and focused on equipment to impart a thorough understanding. Flow of Industrial Fluids: Theory and Equations takes a novel approach that bridges the gap between theory and practice. In a uniquely structured series of chapters and appendices, it presents the basic theory and equations of fluid flow in a logical, common-sense manner with just the right amount of detail and discussion. Detailed derivations and explanations are relegated to chapter-specific appendices, making both aspects easier to access. The treatment is further organized to address incompressible flow before compressible flow, allowing the more complex theory and associated equations to build on the less complex. The measurement and control of fluid flow requires a firm understanding of flow phenomena. Engineer or technician, student or professional, if you have to deal with industrial flow processes, pumps, turbines, ejectors, or piping systems, you will find that Flow of Industrial Fluids effectively links theory to practice and builds the kind of insight you need to solve real-world problems.

This comprehensive review of calibration provides an excellent foundation for understanding principles and applications of the most frequently performed tasks of a technician. Topics addressed include terminology, bench vs. field calibration, loop vs. individual instrument calibration, instrument classification systems, documentation, and specific calibration techniques for temperature, pressure, level, flow, final control, and analytical instrumentation. The book is designed as a structured learning tool with questions and answers in each chapter. An extensive appendix containing sample P&IDs, loop diagrams, spec sheets, sample calibration procedures, and conversion and reference tables serves as very useful reference. If you calibrate instruments or supervise someone that does, then you need this book.

Boiler Control Systems Engineering

This book is for anyone who works with boilers: utilities managers, power plant managers, control systems engineers, maintenance technicians or operators. The information deals primarily with water tube boilers with Induced Draft (ID) and Forced Draft (FD) fan(s) or boilers containing only FD fans. It can also apply to any fuel-fired steam generator. Other books on boiler control have been published; however, they do not cover engineering details on control systems and the setup of the various control functions. Boiler Control Systems Engineering provides specific examples of boiler control including configuration and tuning, valve sizing, and transmitter specifications. This expanded and updated second edition includes drum level compensation equations, additional P&ID drawings and examples of permissive startup and tripping logic for gas, oil, and coal fired boilers. It also covers different control schemes for furnace draft control. NFPA 85 Code 2007 control system requirements are included, with illustrated examples of coal fired boilers, as well as information on the latest ISA-77 series of standards.

There is a tendency to make flow measurement a highly theoretical and technical subject but what most influences quality measurement is the practical application of meters, metering principles, and metering equipment and the use of quality equipment that can continue to function through the years with proper maintenance have the most influence in obtaining quality measurement. This guide provides a review of basic laws and principles, an overview of physical characteristics and behavior of gases and liquids, and a look at the dynamics of flow. The authors examine applications of specific meters, readout and related devices, and proving systems. Practical guidelines for the meter in use, condition of the fluid, details of the entire metering system, installation and operation, and the timing and quality of maintenance are also included. This book is dedicated to condensing and sharing the authors' extensive experience in solving flow measurement problems with design engineers, operating personnel (from top supervisors to the newest testers), academically-based engineers, engineers of the manufacturers of flow meter equipment, worldwide practitioners, theorists, and people just getting into the business. The authors' many years of experience are brought to bear in a thorough review of fluid flow measurement methods and applications Avoids theory and focuses on presentation of practical data for the novice and veteran engineer Useful for a wide range of engineers and technicians (as well as students) in a wide range of industries and applications

The latest update to Bela Liptak's acclaimed "bible" of instrument engineering is now available. Retaining the format that made the previous editions bestsellers in their own right, the fourth edition of Process Control and Optimization continues the tradition of providing quick and easy access to highly practical information. The authors are practicing engineers, not theoretical people from academia, and their from-the-trenches advice has been repeatedly tested in real-life applications. Expanded coverage includes descriptions of overseas manufacturer's products and concepts, model-based optimization in control theory, new major inventions and innovations in control valves, and a full chapter devoted to safety. With more than 2000 graphs, figures, and tables, this all-inclusive encyclopedic volume replaces an entire library with one authoritative reference. The fourth edition brings the content of the previous editions completely up to date, incorporates the developments of the last decade, and broadens the horizons of the work from an American to a global perspective. Béla G. Lipták speaks on Post-Oil Energy Technology on the AT&T Tech Channel.
