Description

Practical Process Control introduces process control to engineers and technicians unfamiliar with control techniques, providing an understanding of how to actually apply control in a real industrial environment. It avoids analytical treatment of the numerous statistical process control techniques to concentrate on the practical problems involved. A practical approach is taken, making it relevant in virtually all manufacturing and process industries.

There is currently no information readily available to practising engineers or students that discusses the real problems and such material is long overdue.

Key Features

  • An indispensable guide for all those involved in process control
  • Includes equipment specification, troubleshooting, system specification and design
  • Provided with guidelines of HOW TO and HOW NOT TO install process control

Readership

Professional industrial engineers of all disciplines at all levels - e. g. engineering managers, technicians, apprentices. Postgraduate manufacturing/process engineering students
