Assured Automation has published an eBook titled Automated Valves: Optimization of Process Control and Profits. The eBook is a compilation of educational articles written by process engineering expert Günter Öxler. The book provides useful guidance for engineers who are designing for efficiency and cost-containment. Sample topics include Process control valve operation under power shut-down / black-out conditions; How to design process valves with adjustable speed control for the opening and closing sequence; and How to operate valves absolutely fail-safe without a power supply or control system.
ABB's Measurement Products' business announces the availability of a full-color, 36-page brochure, Flow Measurement Solutions, that covers a wide range of flow measurement products. Discussed is a common HMI (Human Machine Interface) platform that enables users to easily configure, integrate and maintain ABB flow products. A one-page grid indicates the applicability of the company's electromagnetic, vortex/swirl, thermal mass, Coriolis mass, variable area, and differential pressure flowmeters and flow computers to a variety of liquid, gas, and steam services.
