Leak detection kit
The OPK-340 Industrial Leak Detection Kit has everything a technician needs to accurately and efficiently pinpoint the exact source of all fluid leaks in hydraulic equipment, compressors, engines, gearboxes, fuel and water-based systems.
The kit includes the cordless, rechargeable, Optimax 3000 blue light LED leak detection flashlight, a 16 oz, twin-neck bottle of Oil-Glo 44 concentrated fluorescent oil dye and the a 16 oz, twin-neck bottle of WD-802 concentrated fluorescent water dye. This dye is perfect for detecting leaks in all types of water-based systems. When a leaking industrial system is scanned with the Optimax 3000 flashlight, both dyes glow brightly, locating the source of even the most elusive leaks. The kit also includes an 8 oz spray bottle of Glo-Away dye cleaner, smart AC and DC chargers and fluorescence-enhancing glasses, all 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.
