Emerson’s valve/actuator system improves temperature control
New system can accurately control the temperature of water, oils, steam, and other industrial fluids.
Emerson Process Management has released the Fisher GX 3-way control valve and actuator system. The new system can accurately control the temperature of water, oils, steam, and other industrial fluids. Applications include heat exchangers and lubricating skids. The flow cavity of the GX 3-Way valve body can provide stable flow and reduce process variability and is suitable for temperature and pH control applications. The valve is multi-faceted in its ability to cover flow mixing and flow splitting applications with no extra parts. It features side-port and bottom-port common trim. The robust way valve package addresses space limitations of the OEM industry. It meets requirements of EN and ASME standards and comes with a complete accessory package, including the FIELDVUE DVC2000 integrated digital valve controller.

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.
