Reverse-helix flow meter
Reduce debris and sand typically associated with flow measurement in surface and water well applications with the Model MO300SW Reverse-Helix Flow Meter from McCrometer.
Reduce debris and sand typically associated with flow measurement in surface and water well applications with the Model MO300SW Reverse-Helix Flow Meter from McCrometer. The flow meter increases measurement accuracy, reduces maintenance requirements, and lowers total operating costs. The meter's reverse-helix design propeller comes in a bolt-on saddle configuration that is suitable for use in line sizes ranging from 4 to 12 in. The reverse-helix propeller is installed nose-first on the bearing shaft and uses the reverse flow style bearing assembly. This unique construction allows the ell to curve with the flow, shedding grass, sand, or silt with increased operational reliability and longer life. The meter's stainless steel saddle eliminates fatigue-related breakage and provides corrosion resistance. The reverse-helix impellers are designed with high-impact polypropylene plastic that withstands temperatures to 160 F and is available for water or water heated applications.
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.
