Schneider Electric's Venta VB-7000 bronze globe valves have ultra-tight seal design.
Schneider Electric introduced the updated Venta VB-7000 series bronze globe valves. The valves have ultra-tight seal design that provides tighter close-off with near zero leakage (ANSI V rating) for greater energy savings. The seal also doubles the differential pressure rating (87 psi) to take on the most applications. The valves feature 100:1 range for higher performance, more precise temperature control, and stronger stem design. The RoHS-compliant valves are equipped with the same CV flow ratings, actuator mountings, triple temp valve packing, and plug/stem connection that existed in previous iterations.

2012 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.
