Applied Technology and Instrumentation for Process Control presents the complex technologies of different manufacturing processes and the control instrumentation used. The large variety of processes prohibits covering more than a few. Carefully selected and diverse, but representative, examples show how fundamentally basic simpler elements or techniques can be coordinated and expanded into more control systems. This book is suitable for all levels of practitioners and engineers in related industries or applications.

Douglas O.J. deSá has been involved in the field of process instrumentation and control since 1958. In 1973 he joined the Foxboro Company where he initiated, developed and commissioned several advanced control systems. He has worked in Europe, Canada, and the United States, and lectured at several colleges and universities in the U.K. He has been retired since 1997.
""Each chapter concludes with an excellent summary...This book could be very useful for process control and other engineers who have little background in the design or operation of the processes discussed...Highly recommended."
