Aquatherm has extended its Greenpipe potable water pipe line up to an 18-in. diameter, and the Climatherm HVAC pipe line up to a 24-in. diameter. These large polypropylene-random pipes are recyclable and ideal for large chilled water systems.
Aquatherm has extended its Greenpipe potable water pipe line up to an 18-in. diameter, and the Climatherm HVAC pipe line up to a 24-in. diameter. These large polypropylene-random pipes are recyclable and ideal for large chilled water systems. The pipes have a reduced standard dimension ratio of pipe diameter to wall thickness in order to keep weight and costs down. Systems using Climatherm SDR 17.6 or Greenpipe SDR 11 are connected via heat fusion, which turns the pipe and fitting into a single material, creating durable monolithic connections that eliminate toxic materials, glues, resins, and open flames from piping installations.

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.
