Explosion-proof control panels
Control panels designed by Ross SysCon are explosion-proof, more efficient, and have a small, more compact design, the company said.
Ross SysCon announced a new line of explosion-proof control panels. The operator station includes a digital readout for speed and cycle time in a new interface and more compact design.
The panels are designed to be mounted close to the mixer in a hazardous area and wired to a variable frequency drive that is installed outside the mixing room, according to Ross SysCon.
Type X or Z purge control panels are also reportedly available for users who require mixer portability without remote wiring.

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.
