Controls Valves is the most complete and up-to-date reference book on Control Valves that ISA has published.

Ten years in the making, and over 700 pages in length, it incorporates the work of twenty-one individual authors that cover the broad spectrum of models, applications and consequences of valve systems.

This book belongs in every measurement and control library, offering both encyclopedic coverage and practical tips. 

    Control Valves offers solutions to problems involving the body assemblies, actuators and accessories of control valves, as well as an overview of valve design and construction.

It includes discussions of applications, safety, troubleshooting, maintenance, testing, standards, valve-related computer programs, and regulators, as well as specific considerations that should assist instrument engineers in the selection of the best valve body, actuator and accessories for their applications.
