Overview

Appropriate for both engineers and sales staff, this textbook reviews fluid properties and measures of flowmeter performance, describes the operation and attributes of the various flowmeter technologies, and provides guidelines for selecting the appropriate flowmeter for each industrial application. Separate chapters are devoted to differential pressure, magnetic, mass, oscillatory, positive displacement, thermal, turbine, ultrasonic, and insertion flowmeters. The second edition was published in 1990. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
