The Valve industry has become increasing digital since the publication of the first edition in 1997. Even a casual examination of available smart or intelligent positioners reveals significant differences in design philosophies, on-board intelligence, and application options being employed by manufacturers. The 2nd edition of the Valve Handbook will focus on the new process plant applications for smart valve technology found since 1998.
