Finalist in HVAC/R in Consulting-Specifying Engineer's 2011 Product of the Year competition
Camfil Farr’s Hi-Flo ES is an ASHRAE-grade pocket filter that offers low total cost of operation, long service life, and the ability to operate without a prefilter. The filter is made of a high-lofted, air-laid micro-fiberglass media with a pocket configuration. Controlled media spacing allows the product to work with a lower sustained pressure drop than conventional pocket filters. Small fiber diameter and uniform lofting provide uniform capture of submicron particles while maintaining low resistance to airflow over time, which allows each product to maintain its original Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rating of 11, 13, 14, and 15.
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.
