The iP55-280DS diesel-powered waterjet intensifier pump is suitable for use in remote and mobile locations where electricity is scarce. The 280-horsepower turbo diesel engine meets domestic and international Tier 3 emissions standards. The pump is capable of producing flow rates of up to 4.1 gallons per minute of 55,000-psi ultra-high pressure water for waterjet cutting, surface preparation, and cleaning applications. The pump also is equipped with a pressure-compensated hydraulic system to drive dual plunger-style intensifiers. The use of hydraulic fluid power provides smooth flowing UHP water.
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.
