Compressed Air and Gas Handbook available as free download
Chapters can be downloaded at CAGI Website
The Compressed Air and Gas Handbook, the authoritative and widely used reference manual for information about the proper installation, use and maintenance of compressors and pneumatic equipment, is now available online in PDF format. Formerly available only as a 750-page hardbound book, the individual chapters are now available as free downloadable PDF documents on the CAGI website.
Published in 1947, the first edition of the Compressed Air and Gas Handbook was a joint effort of the CAGI Educational and Technical Committees. The original hardbound handbook consisted of five chapters and nearly 400 pages. Now in its sixth edition, the illustrated handbook contains engineering information from leading manufacturers and valuable reference data about compressed air systems.
“The CAGI handbook is an excellent, comprehensive resource for compressed air professionals,” said Paul Humphreys of CAGI. “Now, with its availability online, even more professionals can have access to this valuable information.”
The handbook is still available for purchase as a hardbound book through the CAGI website.

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.
