Technologies inside: Higher pump efficiency, consolidated logic
Eaton M-Max VFD provided QuantumFlo with a cost-effective, more energy-efficient solution than prior drives used. The more accurate Eaton M-Max drive with IP21 conduit kit allowed QuantumFlo to meet energy and functionality needs, while eliminating the PLC and control panel for logic.

The more accurate Eaton M-Max drive with IP21 conduit kit allowed QuantumFlo to meet energy and functionality needs, while eliminating the PLC and control panel for logic.
QuantumFlo used its variable speed pump expertise to develop a “pump in a box” solution, the QuantumFlo Atom Simplex Light Commercial/Residential pressure booster, a fully contained, fully assembled solution with integrated motor, pump, bladder tank, and a VFD.
Eaton’s M-Max variable frequency drive was used with an IP21 conduit kit to contain all the wiring.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
