JP jockey pump controllers by Tornatech control jockey pumps by preventing the fire pump from starting due to small leaks in the sprinkler system.
The JP jockey pump controllers are designed to control jockey pumps to maintain desired water pressure in pump-serviced systems. A jockey pump helps prevent the fire pump from starting due to small leaks in the sprinkler system piping. The JP jockey pump has a front door mounted, microprocessor based iPD+ operator interface, which allows the user to set and adjust parameters for pressure, timers, and units of measure without opening the controller door.
Annual Salary Survey
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.
