Air treatment products
Refrigerated and desiccant regenerative dryers and filters
Depending on the application and dew point requirements refrigerated and desiccant regenerative types are available. Refrigerated dryers are available in four different configurations, including non-cycling models, digital cycling models, cycling models, and high temperature models. Desiccant regenerative dryers, ideally suited for outdoor compressed air piping or operations that require dew points as low as -40°F (optional -100°F), are available in four different configurations: modular, heatless, externally heated, and blower purge. Filters, which are designed to protect plant equipment and processes while improving product quality and for applications, cover a wide range of uses from general purpose to the most critical levels of food and pharmaceuticals.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
