Explosion-proof control panels
Control panels designed by Ross SysCon are explosion-proof, more efficient, and have a small, more compact design, the company said.
Ross SysCon announced a new line of explosion-proof control panels. The operator station includes a digital readout for speed and cycle time in a new interface and more compact design.
The panels are designed to be mounted close to the mixer in a hazardous area and wired to a variable frequency drive that is installed outside the mixing room, according to Ross SysCon.
Type X or Z purge control panels are also reportedly available for users who require mixer portability without remote wiring.

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.
