Total organic carbon sensor with ISM
Mettler Toledo Process Analytics Division introduces its 5000TOCi sensor with Intelligent Sensor Management.
Mettler Toledo Process Analytics Division announces the introduction of its 5000TOCi sensor with Intelligent Sensor Management(ISM). The new sensor is ideal for continuous, fast, and reliable monitoring of total organic carbon (TOC) levels in applications such as Water for Injection, reverse osmosis membranes, effectiveness of TOC destruct UV lamps, resin bed performance, organics shedding, and quality of final rinse water.
With fast response and continuous on-line measurements, the 5000TOCi sensor ensures TOC excursions will not be missed. The 5000TOCi sensor is developed specifically to meet the demands for pure water in the pharmaceutical, power generation and microelectronics industries. “The new Thornton 5000TOCi with ISM enhances operational performance with a reliable, sophisticated, and intuitive measurement system by combining a proven and dependable TOC analysis platform with advanced user interface and Intelligent System Management sensor diagnostics,” says Steven Carelli, product manager. “When combined with Thornton’s M800 multi-parameter transmitter, it integrates on-line TOC measurement with up to four sensors to save cost and complexity.” The 5000TOCi can be coupled with Thornton’s M800 ISM transmitter (available in two- or four-channel versions) capable of operating any combination of up to two or four sensors for conductivity, pH, OPR, dissolved ozone or dissolved oxygen, plus two pulsed flow sensors.

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.
