POY Finalist: Cartridge dust collector
Finalist in Environmental Health in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The Gold Series cartridge dust collector, with an optional feature for integrated HEPA safety monitoring filter, is designed to prevent collected dust from re-entering the workspace if there is a leak in the primary filtering system. Each module incorporates two HEPA filters capable of handling 2,500 cfm of air per filter and rated to remove 99.97% of airborne particles of 0.3 micron in diameter and larger.
The Gold Series’ integrated design maintains the after-filter at negative pressure, preventing contaminated air from escaping. The design allows access to the HEPA filters and easy change-out through the platform used to access the primary filters.

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.
