Industrial Valves: Calculations for Design, Manufacturing, Operation, and Safety Decisions
INDUSTRIAL VALVES Improve the design and safety of your industrial valves with this comprehensive guide
Industrial valves are used to regulate the flow of liquids, gases, or slurries. They are fundamental to multiple industries, including marine shipping, in which valves regulate power supply, wastewater, water for fire-fighting, and other shipboard essentials. They are also critical to the oil and gas industry, where valves are used to control the flow of oil or gas out of deposits, direct the crude oil refining process, protect key areas and equipment from spillage and overflow, and more. Without the safety and regulating power provided by industrial valves these industries could not proceed.
This book provides a thorough introduction to the modeling and calculation of key challenges related to valve design, manufacturing, and operation. It focuses particularly on solving problems of material failure due to corrosion and cavitation, allowing readers to construct valve designs that will maximize safety and reliability. It is a critical resource in helping protect workplaces, industrial sites, and valuable equipment from the externalities of these fundamental industrial resources.
