Pressure reducing valve
The 3350 is suitable for systems with fill pressure requirements of 10 to 50 psi and features a fast-fill button with automatic reset.
Taco’s 3350 valve is used to automatically feed water to a hydronic system when pressure in the system drops below the pressure setting of the valve. The 3350 is suitable for systems with fill pressure requirements of 10 to 50 psi and features a fast-fill button with automatic reset. All cartridge-style reducing valve parts are contained in a one-piece cartridge that can easily be removed and serviced. The 3350’s dial-in pressure setting allows for easy adjustment throughout the 10 to 50 psi range, without the need for an external gauge. The design of the valve features a stainless steel coaxial strainer, preventing system debris from affecting the valves’ performance.
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.
