Compressed air dryers
The D-EC Energy-Saving Refrigerated Compressed Air Dryer series are designed for small commercial use and manufacturing applications
The D-EC Energy-Saving Refrigerated Compressed Air Dryer series are available in eight models, ranging in capacities from 10 to 125 standard cubic feet per minute (SCFM). The D-EC dryers are ideal for small commercial compressed air users such as machine shops, automotive repair and refinishing businesses and light manufacturing applications. The D-EC cycling dryers incorporate a thermal mass that stores cold energy, providing enhanced operating efficiency over competitive non-cycling products in this range. The thermal mass cools the air flowing through the dryer, allowing the refrigeration system to turn off during periods of low demand without degrading air quality.
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.
