Dosing and transfer pump
The PD01 series ¼-in.” pump is designed for dosing applications where accurate and repeatable dosing is integral to the process being performed
The PD01 series ¼-in.” pump is designed for dosing applications in the commercial laundry, car wash, wastewater treatment, paint, inks and packaging markets, and many other applications where accurate and repeatable dosing is integral to the process being performed. The PD01 series comes with a solenoid-actuated valve option to electronically control the volume of fluid dispensed, which allows the diaphragm pump to operate with accuracy. Operators can use an external controller to program the solenoid pump to establish when to actuate the pump, and to automatically shut off once the pump reaches the required volume. This feature offers repeatability and consistency with less than 3% variance.
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.
