FlowmetersMicro Motion 2200S two-wire transmitter
Emerson Process Management, Micro Motion Division
Emerson's Micro Motion 2-wire Coriolis meter with MVD technology extends highly accurate mass flow and density measurement to loop-powered applications, eliminating the need for additional power wiring. Bringing the same high-quality features of Micro Motion Coriolis, the new two-wire meter delivers +0.10% liquid flow and +0.0005 g/cm3 liquid density accuracy in continuous process and mass balance applications. It has no moving parts and requires no maintenance. Suitable for integral or extended mount, the innovative loop powered design makes for seamless integration into existing control systems. The 2200S delivers multivariable and diagnostic information via HART communications. www.micromotion.com
ST51 Flowmeter - Fluid Components International
ST51 Mass Flow Meter from FCI provides highly accurate and reliable gas flow measurement in green energy applications in the emerging methane-to-markets processes that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and use biogas in the co-generation of electric power.
Process Sensors Fluke Ti25 Thermal mager
The Fluke Ti25 enables engineers to see the heat signature of electrical and mechanical equipment to scan and identify potential problems quickly from a safe distance. Its IR Fusion patent-pending technology integrates infrared and visual (visible light) images in full screen or picture-in-picture views for enhanced problem detection and analysis. The Ti25 and Ti10 models are designed to make the use of thermal imaging affordable and effective for day-to-day troubleshooting. The Ti25 includes the ability to record and save voice comments with every image taken, and on-screen emissivity correction. Both models are tested to withstand a drop of 6.5 ft. (2 meters), and are IP54 rated to withstand water and dust. www.fluke.com

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.
