Magnetic bearing centrifugal chiller
The Magnitude centrifugal chiller by Daikin McQuay is designed to reduce energy and operations costs
The 700-ton Daikin McQuay Magnitiude centrifugal chiller is designed to reduce energy and operations costs while maintaining a comfortable environment and atmosphere. With its positive pressure, oil-free design, the ultra-efficient performance of the Magnitude chiller is sustainable because there’s no oil to contaminate the refrigerant and degrade system efficiency. By eliminating the high friction losses of conventional centrifugal compressors, the Magnitude chiller achieves exceptional full and part-load performance. The Magnitude chiller line has been tested and International Building Code (IBC) certified for seismic installations to remain online and functional after an event. For critical health facility buildings in California, Magnitude chillers have also received the more rigorous Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) special seismic certification pre-approval.
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.
