Stainless steel enhanced grounding rods
Stainless steel enhanced ground rods contain special salts that help lower soil resistivity and are used in conjunction with ground enhancement material such as Ultrafill.
Stainless steel enhanced grounds rodsalso overcome many of the problems caused by galvanic corrosion which can take place between dissimilar metals buried in close proximity such as copper clad ground grounds and guy anchors. Some other applications for these grounding rods are areas with acidic soils, airports, pipe lines, power plants, and other industrial sites. For more about the 300 series from Harger, click here .
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.
