Courtesy: Emerson Process ManagementEmerson's ROC800L flow computer uses Flow-Cal's liquids CFX file format, which is designed to creates a seamless interface from the field to Flow-Cal’s Enterprise Liquids measurement system. This is designed to improve productivity, reduce cost and increase measurement data security with better insight to field operations. 

The version 7 CFX file format allows for the import of liquid data into the Flowcal measurement application which automates the complex process of batch and ticket processing. Data generated from the CFX file includes flow information, CTL and CPL, meter configuration, and analysis. The Flow-Cal CFX file format is a secure, binary format which retains data integrity by ensuring the measurement data cannot be changed or manipulated. Generating the file format within the Emerson flow computer offers an additional level of data security.  

The ROC800L covers a wide variety of applications for liquid handling across a full range of liquid hydrocarbons, including crude oil, refined products, special application products, lubricating oils, and light hydrocarbons. The ROC800L leverages the easy-to-use architecture of the ROCseries, offering fill-in-the blank configuration that brings users online faster.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 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.
