INDUSTRIAL GASES — MANAGING ONSITE PRODUCTION, STORAGE AND USE GUIDEBOOK

The articles in this volume profile the various sourcing options for many industrial gases, including onsite generation of oxygen and nitrogen via cryogenic distillation, non-cryogenic processes based on adsorption or membrane separation and production of hydrogen via reforming, and delivery of industrial gases via pipeline, tanker or cylinder. Also provided are good safety practices for the appropriate handling of cryogenic fluids and compressed gases, compressors, and engineering guidance for tank blanketing or inerting applications, a key use of nitrogen onsite. Here you will learn more about the economies of scale and capital-intensive engineering projects.

ISA NEW PUBLICATION: FLUID MECHANICS OF CONTROL VALVES

The International Society of Automation (ISA) recently announced the first-edition release of Fluid Mechanics of Control Valves: How Valves Control Your Process, a practical reference guide to proper control valve design, selection, and operation. Written by Hans D. Baumann, Ph.D., PE; a world-renowned expert on control valve technology; the book reflects the latest understanding of how fluid mechanics and acoustics affect control valve performance.

“The book is primarily targeted to instrument and process engineers needing fundamental knowledge about control valves and their role in industrial process control systems,” says Dr. Baumann, who is credited with more than 100 patents relating to control valves. “In addition to outlining the mechanical and functional value and importance of control valves, it helps engineers avoid destructive effects, such as cavitation, fluid-induced vibration, and excessive sound levels.” Dr. Baumann continues: “Furthermore, the book includes up-to-date valve sizing equations and reference tables for selecting the proper type and size of a control valve for a given application. This makes it a valuable reference and technical guide for practicing professionals as well as for college students studying automatic control theory.”

For the benefit of international readers, examples and equations are presented in metric as well as US customary terms and measurements.
