This Selectronic commercial hands-free, battery-powered, dual-flush toilet valve from American Standard automatically adjusts flush volume. The valve releases a light flush when motion is detected for less than 60 secs. Otherwise, a standard flush volume is used. The sensor’s range is preset at the factory and can be adjusted either manually or via remote control. Valve features include a self-cleaning piston, chemical-resistant seals, and piston operation that eliminates rubber diaphragms. This valve is offered as a complete 11½- or 27-in. rough-in version, as well as a retrofit model without the stop valve and vacuum breaker.
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.
