New line of heat-of-compression (HOC) dryers
A new line of heat-of-compression (HOC) dryers provides flexibility, reliability, and energy efficiency in a low-profile package. The dryers turn wasted heat into useful energy, resulting in clean, dry, oil-free air at a fraction of the cost of traditional desiccant dryers. By using heat produced during the compression process, the HOC dryers can deliver instrument-quality air using the same energy as a 150-W light bulb. Patented heat exchangers, constructed with stainless steel, provide optimal performance under the harshest operating conditions, and the automatic drain bypass feature ensures removal of condensate.

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.
