Title: Hydraulic and Pneumatic Systems
Author: Andrew Parr
This book has been written by a process control engineer as a guide to the operation of hydraulic and pneumatics systems. It is intended for engineers and technicians who wish to have an insight into the components and operation of a pneumatic or hydraulic system.
The mathematical content has been deliberately kept simple with the aim of making the book readable rather than rigorous. It is not, therefore, a design manual and topics such as sizing of pipes and valves have been deliberately omitted.
This second edition has been updated to include recent developments such as the increasing use of proportional valves, and includes an expanded section on industrial safety.
