Create healthy, sustainable building interiors with Greenguard-certified ToughGard R-EP Duct Liner with Enhanced Surface from CertainTeed. The duct liner provides acoustical and thermal control and anti-microbial protection in duct systems. The duct liner is composed of rotary-type glass fibers firmly bonded with a thermosetting resin overlaid with durable, fire-resistant black composite surface on the steam side. It absorbs unwanted crosstalk, equipment, and air rush noise, and minimizes heat and cooled air loss. ToughGard R-EP is 40% more water repellent than standard duct liner and its airstream surface contains a U.S. EPA-registered anti-microbial agent.
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.
