EC: VLM10 Inline Vortex Mass Flowmeter
Process Control - Process sensors: The VLM10 inline vortex flowmeter measures mass, volumetric, and energy flows on steam, liquid, and gas applications in sizes 1 inch to 12 inch. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice Awards Honorable Mention.
The VLM10 combines an inline vortex meter, a built in flow computer and an integral temperature sensor giving users an elegant all in one solution for their metering needs. The VLM10 is precise and reliable with a steam or gas mass flow accuracy of ±1.5% of range over a wide 20:1 flow range. The fully welded, no gasket design, insures safe measurement of steam and allows the sensors and RTD to be removed without having to shut down the line first. The built in web server allows customers to monitor flow and monitor meter health through the internet. Digital communications delivers information on demand using Modbus RTU, BACnet MS/TP and Modbus TCP/IP technology with standard analog and pulse outputs. The VLM10 is available in a wide range of connections and pressure ranges.

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.
