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
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
