Improve the design and safety of your industrial valves with this comprehensive guide

Industrial valves are used to regulate the flow of liquids, gases, or slurries. They are fundamental to multiple industries, including marine shipping, inwhich valves regulate power supply, wastewater, water for fire-fighting, and other shipboard essentials. They are also critical to the oil and gas industry,where valves are used to control the flow of oil or gas out of deposits, direct the crude oil refining process, protect key areas and equipment fromspillage and overflow, and more. Without the safety and regulating power provided by industrial valves these industries could not proceed.

This book provides a thorough introduction to the modeling and calculation of key challenges related to valve design, manufacturing, and operation.It focuses particularly on solving problems of material failure due to corrosion and cavitation, allowing readers to construct valve designs that will maximize safety and reliability. It is a critical resource in helping protect workplaces, industrial sites, and valuable equipment from the externalities of these fundamental industrial resources.

Readers will also find:
* Applied calculations based on real-life cases from industry
* Information based on international standards including NORSOK (Norwegian standard) and IECs (European standards)
* Based on decades of experience in the relevant industries

Industrial Valves is a useful reference for engineers and practitioners in the oil and gas and marine industries, piping engineers, valve manufacturers, and more.
