Fabric ceiling diffuser
Finalist in HVAC/R in Consulting-Specifying Engineer's 2011 Product of the Year competition
KitchenSox by DuctSox is a flow-through fabric ceiling diffuser that offers restaurants, commercial food service operations, and industrial food plants a solution to improve heat and grease capture for exhaust hoods, indoor air quality, and employee comfort. The product provides an even, regulated, and draft-less airflow through the fabric diffuser that yields radial flow coverage but does not interfere with a kitchen exhaust hood’s capture performance. The fabric diffuser can be detached for laundry, and the product’s Rx series is treated with an antimicrobial agent. The product is made of up to 55% recycled fabric and qualifies as a LEED-certified material.

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.
