POY Finalist: Pocket filter
Finalist in HVAC in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
Hi-Flo ES is a high-efficiency ASHRAE-grade pocket filter that uses up to 50% less HVAC energy and offers up to 30% longer service. This pocket filter prevents pocket-to-pocket contact throughout the filter’s depth, ensuring uniform airflow and full use of the media.
An exclusive front-to-back pocket taper makes the filter Hi-Flo ES resistant to tearing and other damage during installation. The result is a long and productive service life as well as a low lifecycle cost. The pocket filter is effective against a broad range of contaminants, including those that contribute to sick building syndrome.

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.
