Valve Selection Handbook: Engineering Fundamentals for Selecting Manual Valves, Check Valves, Pressure Relief Valves, and Rupture Discs
This definitive guide to valve selection is the result of the author's lifelong study of the design and application of valves. It covers the fundamentals of sealing mechanisms, as well as the sealability of fluids and flow through valves. You will find a complete analysis of valve designs for various industrial flow applications. This fourth edition is thoroughly updated, with revised and expanded chapters on pressure relief valves and rupture discs. This book takes into account U.S. practices and codes as well as emerging European standards. The book is an excellent reference text for practicing engineers and students. It is also of interest to valve manufacturers and authorities who evaluate and establish standards.

The book is fantastic & valuable for the selection & maintenance point of view.
Most of the Dwg.s are clear & very clear to understand the exact construction
& operation of the variety of valve, beginners will be the most benefited form this edition.
Other (earlier & forth coming) additions also to be publish in same manner
