Delve into the components, circuits, instruments, and control techniques being used in today’s high-tech process control technology field. Instrumentation and Process Control provides a technician-level approach to instrumentation and control techniques used in automation and manufacturing processes. 


The book is divided into two parts: Instrumentation (Part 1) and Process Control (Part 2). With an emphasis on industrial applications, this comprehensive source covers the common measurement of temperature, pressure, level, and flow. In addition, it describes the instruments used to measure position, humidity, moisture, and typical liquid and gas measuring instruments. Data transmission, networking, safety, and security are only some of the information covered. 


Typical control techniques are included, with examples of common industrial processes. Fundamental scientific principles, detailed illustrations, descriptive photographs, and concise text are used to present the following topics:


Common instruments and measurements used in industry

Data types and communication over networks

Automatic control techniques and equipment

Hydraulic analysis, control valves, valve sizing, and other final elements

Safety systems and standards

A systems approach to the integration of instruments in process control applications

Examples that show how to install instruments and protect them from damaging environmental conditions

This outstanding and up-to-date text fosters both an understanding and appreciation for the instrumentation and process control field. The content is organized in a logical sequence, beginning with an introduction to the field of instrumentation and continuing through all the elements of a control system. You’ll be pleased with this all-in-one resource that provides a strong foundation in the field of instrumentation and process control.
