About the Author
James B. Rishel has been Owner and consultant in the pumping industry since the late 40's. From 1960 to present, Rishel has been involved in the design and operation of pumping systems. Significant projects include the Denver International Airport, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and National Institute of Health. The author of three books including HVAC Pump Handbook and Water Pumps and Pumping Systems published by McGraw-Hill, he is a member of ASHRAE Journal Editorial Board, and Hydraulic Institute Standards reviewer. Rishel's other book, The Water Management Manual, was published by Systecon Inc. to promote good pump application practice, particularly variable speed pump operation. It is a composite of a number of magazine articles and company bulletins that he has written over the past twenty years.
