    By Diane R. Barkin


    When new plants or systems go online, control systems technicians face special challenges. The start-up you are involved with may be a newly built or substantially changed facility, or the start-up of a portion of a manufacturing facility.

    Author Diane R. Barkin explores and explains the crucial role a technician plays in this process. From the first start-up team meeting to the last round of tuning and loop checking, Barkin uses her extensive practical experience in the process control field to walk you through the issues and skills typically required during a start-up. The book covers:

    • Continuous emissions monitoring
    • Asset management
    • Performance acceptance testing
    • Safety Instrumented systems (SISs)
    • Safety practices and standards
    • Documenting the start-up process
    • Tuning control loops

    Updated significantly since the first edition, Barkin has added content regarding project execution and information concerning the systems and personnel a technician will work with in the current manufacturing environment. Each chapter includes self-study learning objectives, practice questions and exercises, answers and references to industry practices and standards. Written with the technician in mind, it is a nonmathematical, practical book that provides an overview of the scope of duties a technician must perform in real-world situations. Over 30 figures and tables are included, and there is an extensive index.
