Xylem's Bell & Gossett brand Series e-1510 single stage end suction centrifugal pumps are designed to provide efficiency for HVAC and plumbing applications. The Series e-1510 is available in 26 sizes and a variety of configuration options that enable customization and flexibility to fit a broad range of operating conditions. Stainless steel impellers reduce corrosion or degradation potential from varying water quality, and provide improved surface characteristics for enhanced sustainable hydraulic performance. These optimized hydraulics contribute to better efficiency for both fixed and variable speed operation. True back pullout capability supports low maintenance and service costs. To simplify equipment upgrades, Bell & Gossett's Series e-1510 offers backward dimensional interchangeability for easy retrofit installations. The product line also helps system designers comply with ASHRAE Standard 90.1 by improving system energy efficiency compared to older products.
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.
