Storing, handling, and processing of bulk solid materials is fundamental to nearly every manufacturing and processing industry, from the food industry and agribusiness, to the plastics industry, to the mining and cement industries, to coal-fired electric utilities. Automating the handling and processing of solids is rapidly growing, but heretofore little has been published on the latest in sensors and controls used in such applications. This book is intended to meet that need, with full coverage, from principles of measuring solid bulk materials to controlling their flow and movement to help with choosing the right equipment for specific applications.

"This is the first great, 5-star ICS security book.“  Dale Peterson, Digital Bond

"Read Robust Control System Networks — it’s brief, concise, well-written, full of compelling anecdotes, and groundbreaking“  Richard Bejtlich, TaoSecurity

He was the researcher who was one of the first to identify and analyze the infamous industrial control system malware "Stuxnet," and has now written a book that takes a new, radical approach to making Industrial control systems safe from such cyber attacks: design the controls systems themselves to be "robust."

Without modern Instrumentation control, industry would be at a standstill. Whether the instrumentation control hardware consists of local mechanical, pneumatic, or electronic controls, electronic or pneumatic analog controllers, microprocessor-based controllers, programmable logic controllers, personal computer-based controls, or a distributed control system, a keen awareness of advanced regulatory control is required by engineers and technicians to make it all work.

Gregory K. McMillan

With a dose of humor to sweeten a serious message, noted control systems author Greg McMillan offers an experienced-based guide to what can so often go wrong with the systems that measure, regulate, and control industrial processes—from pH measurements to temperature and pressure monitors to process interlock problems.

Using anecdotes, dialogue and dramatized skits, the book helps make more vivid the abstract concepts of how control systems actually do—or don’t—work in real industrial settings.
