Inverter scroll compressor
The VZH inverter scroll compressor is optimized for different pressure ratios to increase energy efficiency.
The VZH inverter scroll compressor uses a brushless interior permanent magnet (IPM) design and is optimized for different pressure ratios to deliver energy savings of more than 30 percent compared to a fixed or mechanically modulating compressor. The variable speed technology provides infinite and smooth capacity modulation, delivering precise temperature control within ±0.3°C/0.1°F of the set point. A 4:1 modulation ratio allows the VZH inverter scroll compressor to modulate from 25 to 100 RPS for greater savings. Furthermore, pre-equipped tandem capability extends the cooling capacity to 52TR and a 12 to 100 percent stepless modulation where low part-loads are needed.
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.
