POY Finalist: Compressed air filter
Finalist in Compressed Air in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The Finite T-Series top-loading compressed air filters are designed to remove solid and liquid contaminants up to 99.995%, which allows for easy element replacement. The filter housings have been designed to make element replacement faster, reducing downtime and increasing production volumes. The loading filters are designed to protect internal components of a refrigerated dryer by removing compressor oil carryover, which can compromise a dryer’s operation. The Finite T-series meets OEM requirements and is ideal for usage in limited spaces and for mounting inside cabinets.

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.
