Radiant floor-heating pump improves control and energy use in primary- and secondary-piping configurations. Pump features include a fully integrated pump and indoor/outdoor controller to simplify pump and associated wiring installation; a standard spring check valve built into the pump casing, which reduces energy costs by eliminating uncontrolled "ghost flows"; user-selected external "call for heat"; and warm-weather shutdown.

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.
