Writing in plain language with a sense of humor, Hooper (Guilford Technical Community College) provides students with a working knowledge of how compressed air systems work. The book is designed as an introductory text for students studying to become maintenance personnel on production machinery, with a focus on individuals who will be working on the factory floor rather than junior engineers, and assumes no prior knowledge of pneumatics. With its reader-friendly layout and quizes with explained answers, it can also be used for inplant workshops. B & w photos of components are included.
