Daikin Applied's AGZ-E family of air-cooled scroll chillers is designed to enable greater energy savings and environmental efficiency while also offering easy maintenance. The chillers are ideal for use in small- to mid-size buildings, as well as in elementary schools, data centers, and hospitals. Features include a factory-installed custom pump package designed to reduce engineering and design efforts, and quicken installation and commissioning. AGZ-E chillers are optimized for mission critical applications, with RapidRestore and fast loading capabilities allowing them to provide 100% chilled water capacity in less than 4 min after a power loss, or in just 2 min from standby mode. The positive displacement scroll compressors used in the AGZ-E chillers provide reliable day-to-day operation. The AGZ-E uses all-aluminum microchannel coils, with a 1000-hour salt fog.
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.
