Washdown AC motors
The WSS stainless steel AC motors are dipped and cured in polyester insulating varnish and are designed for rugged conditions like water treatment and machine shops.
WSS stainless steel AC motors are constructed with the windings doubled-dipped and cured in polyester insulating varnish, anti-rust coated rotor to protect against corrosion, and double-lip seals plus V-ring shaft slingers. These 3-phase industrial grade washdown duty motors come in sizes from 1/3 to 2 H.P. and 1800 RPM. Other features include a TEFC enclosure, Class F insulation, and O-rings installed on the endbells to eliminate moisture. They are designed for water treatment, air/environmental control and machine shops.
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.
