The Powerfoil X2.0 uses an airfoil system that combines airfoils and winglets with AirFence technology to increase overall coverage by 28%.
The Powerfoil X2.0 uses an airfoil system that combines airfoils and winglets with AirFence technology to increase overall coverage by 28%. The winglet eliminates efficiency-robbing turbulence at the airfoil tip, while the AirFence captures air that would otherwise slip off the end of the airfoil. Certain tried-and-true features of the previous Powerfoil X remain, including the NitroSeal gearbox. Its onboard VFD provides easy integration into building automation systems and its fully sealed enclosure prevents corrosion and excessive heat buildup. The fan is UL 507/CSA certified and includes a power-on shutdown fire relay for seamless fire-control panel integration.

Annual 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.
