Elsevier  Science  present  the  latest  edition  of  this  comprehensive  work  on  all  aspects  of compressed air. There have been many advances in hydraulic and electric technology in recent years, yet compressed air still keeps its place as an important medium for power generation, transmission, and control. Its versatility makes it the ideal choice for many applications for which  no  other  form  of  power  is  as  suitable.  As  in  previous  editions,  the  PNEUMATIC HANDBOOK covers the whole range of pneumatic engineering in one volume. It starts with the  basic  principles  and  properties  of  air  and  includes  the  theory  of  air  compression,  the principles of air treatment and the design of compressors, tools, machinery, actuators, sensors and valves. Low pressure and vacuum applications are also covered. The  importance  of  efficiency  in  the  generation  and  transmission  of  compressed  air  is emphasised throughout and useful guidance is given on the design of factory installations to achieve  this.  The  author has  made  a  survey  of pneumatic  equipment  available  in  the  UK, Europe and elsewhere in the world; the latest signifcant developments, wherever produced, are  described.  Legislation  introduced  by  the  European  Community  by  way  of  Technical Directives in respect of safety in the use of compressed air, pressure vessel design, noise control and environmental control is discussed at length. British, American and ISO Standards are an important  source  of  design  material  and  reference  is  made  to  them  throughout  the  book. Included is a comprehensive list of Standards, Codes of Practice and Technical Directives. The book is written with needs of the practical engineer in mind, and only sufficient theory is included for a proper understanding of the principles involved. The publishers are grateful for the assistance of manufacturers who have supplied informa- tion and for the trade associations CETOP, Pneurop, British Compressed Air Society (BCAS) and the Compressed Air and Gas Institute (CAGI). Acknowledgement is given in the text for material where it has been used.
