New ultrasonic flowmeter
AC powered sensor family uses transit time technology for a variety of fluids.
Hoffer Flow Controls has introduced its Transi-Flo I family, a new line of ac powered ultrasonic flowmeters designed to provide accurate measurement of conductive, non-conductive, and aggressive liquids. The Transi-Flo I uses transit-time technology to measure the difference in the waves traveling in and against the fluid flow direction.
These sensors are available in sizes from 1-1/4 to 12 in. pipe sizes, with single- and dual-beam configurations. Hoffer says this provides system accuracy of ±1% using single beam or ±0.5% using dual beam. The unit’s display provides rate and total, and can be mounted on the flowmeter sensor or positioned remotely. The company recommends the Transi-Flo I family for applications using clean water, sea water, sewage, process liquids, oils, chemicals, or any homogeneous liquids capable of ultrasonic wave propagation.

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.
