Slide-on pump for multi-gas detector
The Ventis Slide-on Pump (Model VSP) is designed for gas monitors and does not require tools to attach or remove the pump
The Ventis Slide-on Pump (Model VSP), available in black or safety orange, allows for convenient sampling of up to 50 feet in a wide range of applications. It is ideally suited for gas monitors for personal protection throughout the day. No tools are required to attach or remove the pump to and from the Ventis monitor. Since the pump is powered by its own battery pack, as is the Ventis, the battery packs can be easily exchanged between instruments, as needed. There are three available battery pack options including standard lithium-ion, extended runtime lithium-ion and alkaline which make the pump extremely flexible in the field.
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.
