Diff-Tranz heat-transfer compound increases the efficiency of platen heaters by maximizing their contact with the vacuum diffusion pumps on which they are installed. The compound fills gaps between the irregular surface of the pump's boilerplate and the smooth surface of the heater, ensuring uniform transfer of heat to the boilerplate. Applied with a putty knife, the compound withstands temperatures of up to 1,250 F.

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.
