Hydraulic Institute Offers Third Edition McGraw Hill Pump Handbook
PARSIPPANY, NJ, August 28, 2001 - A newly revised 1,800 page pump handbook, which brings together the resources of international experts of the pump industry, has been published by McGraw-Hill and is available through the Hydraulic Institute (HI). The job critical guide assists anyone involved with pumps to design, specify, purchase, operate, and maintain all pump types. The Pump Handbook, third edition covers every topic from advanced seals to basic paradigms. It is edited by industry veterans Joseph P. Messina, Paul Cooper, Charles C. Heald, and the late Igor Karassik.
"This important update, the first in 14 years, contains the latest developments in pump technology. It is an invaluable tool for pump users, consultants, contractors, engineering construction firms, as well as manufacturers of pumping systems, seals, electrical motors, instrumentation and controls," said Robert Asdal, executive director of HI. "It contains many references to HI Pump Standards and should be on the bookshelf along side the ANSI/HI Pump Standards 2000 Edition."
The handbook contains many new and revised sections, offering practical guidance on topics including: design; selection and purchase; specification of particular materials, such as drivers, valves, piping, intakes, and other components, using both SI and customary units; choice and application of controls and valves; pump installation and operation. Testing, maintenance, and troubleshooting of pumping equipment and peripherals are also detailed.
