The industry’s most authoritative handbook on flow measurement provides a road map to the field of flow measurement. This best-seller discusses strategies for problem solving and puts the whole array of types of flowmeters at the reader’s disposal. The text includes laminar flow elements, critical flowmeters, statistics for measurement, laboratory primary standards, and uncertainty in flow measurement. Emphasis is placed on the importance of accuracy in measurements and ways of ensuring accuracy and avoiding equipment damage through correct forecast of operating conditions, flowmeter selection, installation, calibration, and maintenance. Fundamental considerations such as mixed-phase flow, piping effects, and flow conditioning are examined at length. The problem of attaining a meaningful flow signal through linearization, compensation, and totalization is discussed. Join the thousands of engineers, technicians, managers, and salespeople that have found this reference text an invaluable resource.
