|The Valve industry has
become increasing digital since the publication of the first edition in 1997.
Even a casual examination of available smart or
intelligent positioners reveals significant differences in design philosophies,
on-board intelligence, and application options being employed by manufacturers.
The 2nd edition of the Valve Handbook will focus
on the new process plant applications for smart valve technology found since
Filled with drawings, photographs, and
step-by-step examples, the book features the latest information on basic valve
and actuator sizing the impact of smart technology on valve design and operation

The classic guide to improving efficiency and productivity, updated and
including "smart valve" technology
Updated to accommodate a new generation of"smart technology," this Second
Edition of the Valve Handbook features coverage of smart positioners,
controllers, and valves.
With this comprehensive, expertly written
reference, you get one-stop coverage of valve design, performance, and
selection, as well as the operation, application, and pros and cons of today's
newest smart valves with digital positioners and actuators.
Redesigned to meet the needs of today's professional this handbook provides:
* New process plant applications for the latest smart valve
* Updates on HART® and FieldBus valve technology
* Addition of new pneumatic-to-hydraulic actuator design
* Three-way pneumatic positioner with smart transducer adaptation module
* New high-performance micro-Cv valve
* New ceramic trim materials for mining applications
The Handbook also gives you the expertise to deal with many common problems that
reduce valve performance, including solutions to flashing ... choked flow ...
high velocities ... noise ... and other day-to-day problems.
