Gas temperature probe
The EGT diesel exhaust gas temperature sensor features an enclosed, foul-proof probe tip.
The EGT diesel exhaust gas temperature sensor features an enclosed, foul-proof probe tip. The type-K thermocouple can withstand extreme vibration and heat up to 1,200 degrees C. The sensing tip is recommended for EGT temperature measurements of sulfuric fuels such as diesel and bio-fuels. Measuring 0.187 inches in diameter, the unit will fit most diesel engine exhaust systems from 0.750 to 4.0 inches in diameter with nominal installation modifications. A 90-degree bend accommodates tight-spaced mounting locations.

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.
