Product Description

Book Description

A new edition of the authoritative, single-source handbook to the selection, design, specification, and installation of flowmeters measuring liquid, gas, and steam flows. Miller (president, RW Miller Consulting) supplies the key information on seven-place equation constants and simplifying equations and includes many examples, graphs, and tables to help improve performance, and save time and expense. The revised edition features the latest ISO, ASME, and ANSI-related standards, meter influence quantities for flowmeters, and proposed orifice and nozzle equations. The nine appendices present discussions and proofs, and the generalized properties of liquids and gas. Provides definitive information on selecting, sizing, and performing pipe-flow-rate calculations, using the latest ISO and ANSI standards in both SI and US equivalents. Also presents physical property data, support material for important fluid properties, accuracy estimation and installation requirements for all commonly used flowmeters, guides to meter selection and accuracy, and coverage of linear/differential producers. Includes tabular and graphical representations of equations and extensive cross-referenced appendices.

From the Back Cover

``Anyone involved in the selection or operation of slowmeters should have access to this book''N--Applied Mechanics Review. Through two previous editions, thousands of international engineers have turned to this handbook for reliable and complete information on the selection, design, specification, and installation of flowmeters to measure liquid, gas, and steam flows within all engineering applications. Now the Third Edition brings you completely up to date, with new and expanded coverage of: The latest ISO, ASME, and ANSI-related standards--including guidelines for implementing them in your designs and installations. Meter influence quantities for all flowmeters; widely used flowmeters around the world, including thermal mass, GILFLO, "V" Cone, wedge flowmeter, Laminar Flow elements, and pilot tubes; The latest proposed orifice and nozzle equations, complete with examples. As practical as it is authoritative, this handbook serves as a single-source guide for selecting, sizing, and performing pipe flow rate calculations. It features both customary and SI equations throughout. . .complete coverage of fluid properties and equations of state. . .key information on seven-place equation constants and simplifying equations. . .and includes many examples, graphs, tables, and practical applications to aid in decision making, improve job performance, and save time and expense. This comprehensive reference covers everything from industry-wide standards and practices, to specific descriptions and examples, to physical property data and installation requirements. As a result, this edition remains the standard reference in the field and is the only guide to flowmeter engineering that you'll ever need.

The Only You Will Ever Need on Flow Meters 12 Jun 1998
By runman@city-net.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Highly detailed in every way. Complete equations suitable for computer programming. In fact, Rosemount and other companies refer to this handbook exclusively. The index is the best way to use this book. As handbooks go, it is easy to use and an excellent compilation of vendor information as well as original R&D information. There are a few quarks in the equations for integral orifices, but the actual errors are negligable. I got improved equations from Rosemount. The only reason why I did not give 5 stars is that it takes some time to dig information from the handbook. It's all there, but, it takes time to digest it. You must have this book if you encounter instruments, particularly, flow metes, during your work. You must have this book!
A first-rate reference on industrial flow measurement 28 Nov 2008
By Mr. Tony R. Kuphaldt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This review discusses the second edition of Richard Miller's book. I have not yet had the pleasure of reviewing the third edition.

If you are looking for a comprehensive reference on industrial flow measurement, look no further. Miller's general text is the best I have found on the subject. His writing style is clear, and he consistenly takes the reader back to "first principles" of science in explaining how each form of flowmeter functions, and why corrections must be made from ideal to practical application.

Miller's "Flow Measurement Engineering Handbook" is an outstanding reference text for anyone requiring in-depth coverage of industrial flow measurement, and I recommend it without reservation.

It's a very good book. You can see all kind of measure equipments with different technology. The autor offers a software, it' good too.
images were blurry 28 Oct 2013

The book is very heavy
The paper is of better quality than others, but the images were blurry from looks like being photo copied more than once. I had to look on with others to view one page since it was so bad.
The delivery was as described

This book is good for those who work in flow measurement design or operation like in vendors or oil and gas plants but not too useful to those who work in design engineering companies. But still it's nice to have it.
