About this title

Synopsis:

Unsurpassed in its coverage, usability, and authority since its first publication in 1969, the three-volume Instrument Engineers' Handbook continues to be the premier reference for instrument engineers around the world. It helps users select and implement hundreds of measurement and control instruments and analytical devices and design the most cost-effective process control systems that optimize production and maximize safety.

Now entering its fourth edition, Volume 1: Process Measurement and Analysis is fully updated with increased emphasis on installation and maintenance consideration. Its coverage is now fully globalized with product descriptions from manufacturers around the world.

Béla G. Lipták speaks on Post-Oil Energy Technology on the AT&T Tech Channel.

Review:

The editor of this masterpiece, Béla Lipták, is a longtime engineering consultant, a teacher at Yale, and a fellow of the ISA. He is clearly devoted to producing a useful reference ... . The book is replete with simple explicatory figures and diagrams; well-organized summaries with information on the costs, suppliers, ranges, and inaccuracies of the instruments covered; and practical tips on related subjects such as good instrument maintenance practices. ... Comprehensive, practical, and well-organized, this book is highly recommended for academic libraries and engineering company libraries. It can best serve as a teaching aid for students, or a reference manual for both new and experienced practicing engineers.
-E-Streams, Vol. 7, No. 6, 2004

About the previous editions:

-Alan Reese, Control & Instrumentation

I have seen nothing with the scope of this handbook...
-Roy V. Hughson, Chemical Engineering

In our smaller universe of process control, Béla Lipták is a towering presence...
