ISA Announces Update to Flow Measurement Classic

April 142004
Research Triangle Park, NC (14 April 2004) – ISA announces the pending release of the third edition of Industrial Flow Measurement, by David W. Spitzer (ISBN: 1-55617-871-9). Designed to help practicing engineers avoid costs associated with the misapplication of flowmeters, this newly revised text reviews the important concepts of flow measurement and provides explanations, practical considerations, illustrations, and examples of current flowmeter technology.

Today, flowmeters handle many more applications than could have been imagined a hundred years ago. They measure operating conditions that range from capillary blood flow, flows over spillways, and flow of gases, plasmas, pseudo-plastics, solids, and corrosives. Spitzer, well-known as a flow expert in the technical community, reviews the important concepts of flow measurement and provides explanations, practical considerations, illustrations, and examples of existing flowmeter technologies.

Effective flowmeter selection requires a thorough understanding of flowmeter technology, in addition to a practical knowledge of the process and the fluid. Industrial Flow Measurement presents a rational procedure for flowmeter selection based on factual information. This book will help experienced engineers, technicians and others evaluate the appropriate criteria to select the proper flowmeter.

Beginning 28 April, Industrial Flow Measurement will be available for purchase on the ISANetwork, www.isa.org/books, or by calling (919) 549-8411.

Review copy available upon request.
