Traditionally pneumatics and hydraulics are thought to be a mechanical engineer s subject. In practice the techniques tend to be more akin to the ideas used in electronics and process control. This book has been written by a process control engineer as a guide to the operation of hydraulic and pneumatic systems. It is intended for engineers and technicians who wish to have an insight into the components and operation of a pneumatics or hydraulic system. The mathematical content has been deliberately kept simple with the aim of making the book readable rather than rigorous.

Andrew Parr is an Industrial Control Engineer, recently retired from ASW Sheerness Steel, Sheerness, UK who worked in the steel industry for over thirty years. In 1980 he began specializing in sequence and closed loop control systems using Programmable Controllers (PLCs) with hydraulic and pneumatic actuators. He has written fifteen books on electronics and process control including Logic Designers Handbook, Industrial Control Handbook, Programmable Controllers, Control Engineering, along with many amateur- level books, among them Introduction to Operational Amplifiers. His books have been widely translated into many languages, including Japanese, Polish, and Swedish. He and has presented papers at various international conferences, including ones on 'Automation Systems in the Steel Industry' and on 'Automated Fault Diagnostics'

Book Description Jaico Publishing House, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Practically every industrial process requires objects to be moved, manipulated or be subjected to some form of force. This is generally accomplished by means of electrical equipment (such) as motors or solenoids), or via devices driven by air (pneumatics) or liquids (hydraulics). Traditionally pneumatics and hydraulics are thought to be a mechanical engineer`s subject (and generally taught as such in colleges), In practice, the techniques (and more important, the fault finding methodology) tend to be more akin to the ideas used in electronics and process control. This book has been written by a process control engineer as a guide to the operation of hydraulic and pneumatics systems. The mathematical content has been deliberately kept simple with the aim of making the book readable rather than rigorous. It is not, therefore, a design manual and topics such as pipe sizing and CV values of valves have been deliberately omitted. Hydraulics and Pneumatics : a technician`s and engineer`s guide is for those professionals who need an insight into the components and operation of a pneumatic or hydraulic system.
