About the Authors
  • Flow Measurement Handbook is a reference for engineers on flow measurement techniques and instruments. It strikes a balance between laboratory ideas and the realities of field experience and provides practical advice on design, operation and performance of flowmeters. It begins with a review of essentials: accuracy, flow, selection and calibration methods. Each chapter is then devoted to a flowmeter class and includes information on design, application installation, calibration and operation. Among the flowmeters discussed are differential pressure devices such as orifice and Venturi, volumetric flowmeters such as positive displacement, turbine, vortex, electromagnetic, magnetic resonance, ultrasonic, acoustic, multiphase flowmeters and mass meters, such as thermal and Coriolis. There are also chapters on probes, verification and remote data access.

    • Discusses industrial meter types and technologies systematically
    • Provides a thorough source of knowledge to enable choices to be made and industrial products to be assessed

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Professor Baker's second edition is a thoroughly welcome volume, and highly recommended to new readers. As for those old enough to have a copy of the first edition on their shelves, it is likely that the ninety pages of updated and judiciously selected references would on their own justify the investment. More broadly, however, … perusing the second edition avails the opportunity to see, through the eyes of a trusted guide, where and how our craft has evolved since the turn of the century.' Manus Henry, Flow Measurement and Instrumentation
