Control valve positioner
Samson Controls' Type 3725 Positioner is a control valve positioner designed for precise and reliable control of small or large flows and uses auto-tuning and contactless position sensing.
Samson Controls' Type 3725 Positioner is a control valve positioner designed for precise and reliable control of small or large flows occurring in food processing, pulp and paper or bottling plants.
The Type 3725 unit features a UV-resistant polyphthalamide housing and transparent blue polycarbonate cover for protection in rugged conditions.
Data input and start-up is a simple process thanks to auto-tuning, while position sensing is contactless, performed using an AMR sensor. This method allows greater flexibility and enables the device to remain insensitive to vibrations, such as those generated by steam hammer.
The 3725 positioner is designed to be used with Samson’s family of diaphragm operated valves, and can also be Namur rib mounted for travels up to 50mm as well as fitted to rotary actuators with VDI/VDE 3845 mounting.

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.
