Sloan's BASYS sensor-activated faucets allow for sanitary and simple hand washing.
Sloan’s BASYS sensor-activated faucets feature five modular, advanced function faucets that can be used in any commercial application. The BASYS line includes five body types, three spray modules, two sensing technologies, four crowns, and four power choices. The faucet components are designed to be both functional and interchangeable. Benefits include simplified installation with all the electronics in the spout and the water lines attached. Diagnosing problems is made easier with separate indicator lights for battery and solenoid. The smart design also includes one simple tool for service as well as enabling water shutoff with a rotation of the solenoid caddy. Battery life exceeds 3 years even in harsh conditions with just alkaline batteries. Upgrading to a solar-powered crown will increase battery life up to 7 years.
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.
