Resource: Crane’s brand new Technical Paper 410

11 May 2018

Originally developed in 1942, the Crane Technical Paper No. 410 (TP-410) is the quintessential guide to understanding the flow of fluid through valves, pipes and fittings. The manual is intended to aid in selecting the correct equipment and parameters when designing and operating any piping system.

This brand new 2018 U.S. edition, features a new chapter on sensible heat transfer in piping systems, in-depth information on compressible fluid flow and an iterative method for sizing flow meters.

Also included is an in-depth discussion on cavitation and choking in control valves as well as a method for viscosity correcting a centrifugal pump curve and clarification of the calculations for non-circular ducts.

New images, equations, and graphs can be found throughout, increasing the value of the TP-410 as an educational tool and industrial reference for personnel involved in the fluid handling industries for generations to come.
