    Equipment and Components in the Oil and Gas Industry Volume 2: Components provides an overview of the components used in the oil and gas industry, including instrumentation, pipe components, and safety components. Using practical industry examples and an accessible approach, the book is a key reference point for those seeking to learn more about the industry.

    Covering both larger and smaller components used throughout the oil and gas industry, the book details the theory behind pressure gauges, temperature gauges, flow gauges, and level gauges. It then goes on to discuss piping components, such as pipes, flanges, and gaskets and introduces piping special components. Valves are particularly crucial to the oil and gas industry, including on/off valves, control valves, safety valves, and special valves. The book also details actuators, sprinklers, fire and gas detectors, hoses, and hose reels, along with electrical components such as switches, cables, wires, and cable glands. Finally, the book ends with a discussion of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) components.

    This book will be of interest to mechanical and chemical engineers working in the oil and gas industry.

    Karan Sotoodeh, an Iranian author and engineer, formerly worked for Baker Hughes in his last position as a senior–lead valve and actuator engineer in the subsea oil and gas industry. He earned a PhD in safety and reliability in mechanical engineering at the University of Stavanger in 2021. Karan Sotoodeh has almost two decades of experience in the oil and gas industry, mainly with valves, piping, actuators, and material engineering. He has written 11 books about piping, valves, actuators, corrosion, and material selection and approximately 50 papers in peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Sotoodeh has also been selected for international conferences in the United States, Germany, and China to talk about valves, actuators, and piping. He has worked with many valve suppliers in the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Germany, and Norway. He loves traveling, running, swimming, and spending time in nature.
