CONTROL VALVES Understanding the Underlying Issues By Talib Janabi
eBook (PDF): $16.15
Download immediately.
This book gives a practical in-depth account of the concept of control valve, its role as a dynamic element in the process, its types, sizing and selection. It explains the underlying issues that... More > must be considered and the factors involved. It clarifies the ambiguities surrounding these factors and illustrates their relationships and interactions. The book explains how the control valve behavior changes, and its characteristics are modified, under the varying process conditions so that a prediction of valve behavior can be made prior to selection.< Less

Rescuing valves in distress By Michel Pluviose
Paperback: $23.50
Ships in 3-5 business days
Flows in safety valves, which deeply penetrate the chaotic domain, are remarkable examples of the application of the laws of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. Incidents and accidents with these... More > devices stem from our lack of understanding about how flows expend their motive power. This area of physics has remained in the shadows. Scientists have been trying for centuries to understand their operation. This book will explore this topic. In certain facilities, fluid flows freely and excites the structure containing it, weakening and sometimes destroying it. To avoid these dangerous zones, the author who has been involved for a long time in the operation of valves, proposes efficient solutions based on a new concept in physics: the principle of worst action.< Less

Have you ever wondered if there is a difference between horizontally and vertically applied butterfly valves? In this eBook, Mr Günter Öxler, from Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG, explains... More > that there is, in fact, a significant difference. This eBook also demonstrates the proper - and improper - ways to install a butterfly valve at a pump outlet and at an elbow or reducer with images and explanations.< Less
The Complete Valve Primer – a definitive guide By Michael A. Crabtree M.Sc.
Paperback: $6.60
Ships in 3-5 business days
Research studies within the process industry routinely indicate that the fluid control valve is responsible for 60 to 70% of poor-functioning control systems. This book ‘The Complete Valve... More > Primer – a definitive guide’ is a complete in-depth manual covering all aspects of valve technology and includes more than 140 explanatory drawings – clearly showing the construction of a wide range of valves that includes: control valves; shut-off valves; check valves; and pressure relief and safety valves. A large section is also devoted to covering the fundamental principles of converters, actuators, and positioners. Readers are presented with an insight into flashing, cavitation, noise generation, leakage problems, a complete overview of valve sizing, and the correct procedure for calculating the spring ‘wind-up’. Routine maintenance and repair issues are also covered, as well as diagnostic methodologies for testing for deadband/hysteresis, stick-slip and non-linearity;and signature analysis.< Less

AIR CRASH INVESTIGATIONS: JAMMED RUDDER KILLS 132, The Crash of USAir Flight 427 By Hank Williamson, editor
Paperback: $35.92

The Boeing 737 has a history of rudder system-related anomalies, including numerous instances of jamming. A number of accidents and incidents were the result of the airplanes' unexpected movement of... More > their rudders. During the course of the four and a half year investigation of the crash of USAir Flight 427 near Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, killing 132 people, the NTSB discovered that the PCU's dual servo valve could jam as well as deflect the rudder in the opposite direction of the pilots' input, due to thermal shock, caused when cold PCUs are injected with hot hydraulic fluid. This finally solved the mystery of sudden jamming of the rudders of this aircraft.< Less
