Book description

The Instrument and Automation Engineers? Handbook (IAEH) is the #1 process automation handbook in the world. Volume one of the Fifth Edition, Measurement and Safety, covers safety sensors and the detectors of physical properties.

Measurement and Safety is an invaluable resource that:

  • Describes the detectors used in the measurement of process variables
  • Offers application- and method-specific guidance for choosing the best measurement device
  • Provides tables of detector capabilities and other practical information at a glance
  • Contains detailed descriptions of domestic and overseas products, their features, capabilities, and suppliers, including suppliers? web addresses

Complete with 163 alphabetized chapters and a thorough index for quick access to specific information, Measurement and Safety is a must-have reference for instrument and automation engineers working in the chemical, oil/gas, pharmaceutical, pollution, energy, plastics, paper, wastewater, food, etc. industries.

About the eBook
The most important new feature of the IAEH, Fifth Edition is its availability as an eBook. The eBook provides the same content as the print edition, with the addition of thousands of web addresses so that readers can reach suppliers or reference books and articles on the hundreds of topics covered in the handbook. This feature includes a complete bidders' list that allows readers to issue their specifications for competitive bids from any or all potential product suppliers.
