This is the definitive guide to valve selection. It covers the fundamentals of valve construction and application, and analyzes the different hazards and requirements of all types of industrial fluid flow situations.

This third edition expands the coverage of pressure relief valves and rupture discs. It includes a new section on damping valve chatter, which is a serious problem in installations such as atomic power plants where valve chatter could have catastrophic consequences to the safety of a plant. There is also new information on performance of spring-loaded pressure relief valves and a closer examination of valve selection with respect to rupture discs and explosion venting.
