Leak detection kit
The OPK-441 Leak Detection Kit uses an LED leak detection flashlight to find oil-based fluid systems, compressors, engines, gearboxes and fuel systems
The OPK-441 Leak Detection Kit is designed to find oil-based fluid in hydraulic systems, compressors, engines, gearboxes and fuel systems. The main kit component is the Optimax 400 violet LED leak detection flashlight. Its violet LED light causes fluorescent dyes to glow more brightly and with greater contrast to pinpoint the exact source of every leak. The kit also includes an 8 oz. twin-neck bottle of patented OIL-GLO 44 concentrated fluorescent dye, an 8 oz. spray bottle of GLO-AWAY dye cleaner, dye treatment tags and fluorescence-enhancing glasses. All of these components are packed in a rugged carrying case.
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.
