This is a very unique book, quite different from the other Womack Industrial Fluid Power textbooks. It features dozens of practical suggestions for proper installation, operation, and troubleshooting particularly for people in the field. For example, the best way to install valves, cylinders, and pumps; how to improve speed or efficiency of existing systems; finding the cause of equipment breakdowns and correcting them; installation and start-up of both open loop and closed loop systems; how to go about troubleshooting. Covers accessory equipment such as heat exchangers, pressure intensifiers, accumulators, and vacuum pumps as well as more common components such as cylinders, valves, and pumps.
