Summary

In order to achieve consistent competency levels for graduates exiting Associate degree programs in process technology, Process Technology Instrumentation addresses all of the standardized national objectives for this two-year degree program.
This textbook was created with the inputs of more than sixty process technology professionals in both educational and industrial settings.

Process Technology Instrumentation is a two-semester text, so there is continuity and flow between introductory concepts and more advanced concepts taught later in the program. Educators in many disciplines will find these materials a complete reference for both theory and practical application. Students will find this textbook to be a valuable resource throughout their process technology career.

Topics addressed in this book include:

  • Introduction to Instrumentation
  • Process Variables and Instruments (pressure, temperature, level, flow, analytical)
  • Measuring Devices
  • Control Loops
  • Control Valves and Regulators
  • Symbology
  • Troubleshooting
