Your Best-Bet Guide to Essential Machinery—Updated

Whenever and wherever fluids must be moved, a pump — next to the electric motor, the second most common machine used today — must be there. And if you work with pumps, the Pump Handbook, the field's hands-down reference leader, must be there, too.

Newly revised, and bringing together the resources of international experts, this job-critical guide is the one and only guide to the design, application, specification, purchase, operation, and maintenance of pumps of all kinds. Covering everything from advanced seals to basic design paradigms, the Pump Handbook takes you through all the latest developments in pump technologies. This important update, the first in 14 years, offers practical guidance to help you:

*Design leading-edge pumps of all types for any uses.
*Select and purchase the right pump for your application.
*Specify materials, drivers, valves, piping, intakes, and other components—using both SI and Customary Units.
*Choose and apply controls and valves
*Install and operate any type of pump.
*Test, maintain, and troubleshoot pumping equipment and peripherals.
*Find details on centrifugal, jet, positive displacement, and other pumps.
*Keep state-of-the-art reference data and resources always at hand.
