Faucets with above-deck electronics
Sloan's EAF series of sensor-activated faucets now come in gooseneck models with above-deck electronics.
Sloan has added gooseneck models to its EAF series of sensor-activated faucets with above-deck electronics. The gooseneck faucets are suitable for all types of commercial applications, including medical offices, classrooms, labs, and foodservice areas. The new EAF-700-ISSM/EAF-750-ISM faucet models feature ease of installation and reliability, along with all the benefits of having the sensor electronics located in the faucet spout for simpler, above-deck maintenance. The faucets have been listed by IAPMO to ANSI A112.18.1. The faucets, which come with a 1.5 gpm/5.7 Lpm laminar stream pressure-compensating insert for healthcare applications, offer greater water savings than typical 2.2 gpm models. Installers can run up to six EAF faucets on a single voltage adapter.
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.
