Solenoid pipeline valve pneumatics
The NITRA line of pneumatics are two-position, normally-closed, and are fitted with DIN-style wire connectors
The NITRA line of pneumatics include a wide selection of solenoid pipeline valves designed for control of air, oil, water, and inert gas. All valves are two-position, normally-closed, spring return styles with 24VAC, 24VDC or 120 VAC solenoids, and are fitted with DIN-style wire connectors. Depending on series, valves are offered with port sizes from 1/8-inch to one-inch FNPT. Valve models are available in two-way and three-way diaphragm styles. NITRA pipeline valves are ideal for applications such as pneumatic air line shutoff and HVAC systems.
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.
