SPONSORED White Paper: Logic Solver for Tank Overfill Protection
This paper explores the possibilities available to SIS designers of tank overfill protection systems when using a logic solver. It includes examples of system topographies and their associated Safety Integrity Level (SIL) calculations.
This white paper is designed to explore potential choices to a safety instrumented system (SIS) designer of a tank overfill protection system for the logic solver. It also provides a step-by-step procedure to define and evaluate an SIS as well as show examples of system topologies and their safety integrity level (SIL) calculations.
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.
