For over thirty years, the Surface Production Operations Series has taken the guess work out of the design, selection, installation, operation, testing, and troubleshooting of surface production equipment. The fourth volume in this series, Pumps, Compressors, and Drivers, is directed to both entry-level personnel and practicing professionals looking for an up-to-date reference book on managing, evaluating, sizing, selecting, installing, operating and maintaining pump and compressor systems. Packed with examples drawn from years of design and field experience, this reference features many charts, tables, equations, diagrams, and photographs to illustrate the basic applications including the following:

- Pump Hydraulics and Engineering Principles- Centrifugal, Reciprocating and Rotary Pump Application and Selection Criteria- Pump Performance Curves- Operations and Maintenance Considerations- Compressor Thermodynamic and Engineering Principles- Centrifugal and Reciprocating Compressor Application and Selection Criteria- Compressor Performance Maps- Application of Compressor Theory and Practical Solutions- How to Select a Compressor- Pump and Compressor Construction Details and Materials of Construction- Process Piping and System Considerations- Pump and Compressor Testing, and Installation- Retrofitting and Rerating Considerations- Commonly Used Drivers such as Motors, Engines and Turbines- Electric Motors- Internal Combustion Engines- Combustion Gas Turbines and Driver Application and Selection Criteria

- Covers application and performance considerations for all types of pumps and compressors- Delivers hands-on manual for applying mechanical and physical principles to select and design pump and compressor systems, supported by many tables and diagrams- Gives expert advice on how to apply design codes and standards such as API 610, API 674, ANSI B78.1, API 617, API 11P, API RP 14C and the Hydraulic Institute
