Schneider Electric’s Condenser Fan Pak solution incorporates floating high-pressure control and VSD fan operation for multi-fan, air-cooled chillers and condensers. This solution can benefit both new machines for the OEM, and existing machines for the end user. In addition, the energy consumption of air-cooled chillers and condensers can be reduced by up to 20%. As a retrofit for existing machines, these energy savings can be achieved for a fraction of the cost of complete replacement. The unit is shipped preprogrammed, wired, fully tested, and ready to optimize the operation of an air-cooled chiller or condenser.
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.
