The high-efficiency, low-maintenance LED Vaportite luminaires are designed for maximum versatility and are available in multiple mounting configurations including pendant, ceiling, wall outlet, and stanchion mount.
The fixtures deliver high-quality, superior light over incandescent luminaires traditionally used in applications such as:
- manufacturing plants;
- chemical and petrochemical processing facilities;
- sewage treatment plants; offshore and dockside installations; and
- agricultural, commercial, industrial, mining, and marine facilities.
Additional features include an LED life of up to 50,000 hours, a 120 V power supply, and crisp white 5,000 K color.
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.
