Independent humidity, temperature control
Munters DryCool Standard provides operators with ability to control temperature, humidity independently.
Munters DryCool Standard provides operators with the ability to control temperature and humidity independently. DryCool Standard is designed to cost effectively treat 100% makeup air and can work in conjunction with an existing air conditioning system or energy recovery ventilator (ERV). It controls humidity on an as-needed basis, when humidity levels exceed setpoint. DryCool Standard operates cost-efficiently because all of the energy required for the operation of its desiccant dehumidifier is recycled from cooling components, according to Munters. DryCool Standard can reportedly process between 1,000 cfm and 16,000 cfm of makeup air.
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.
