Among the scheduled attractions of the conference is a presentation titled “Examining Route-based Leak Inspections of Air Operated RKL Bladder Valves and the Benefits of Those Inspections,” given by Daniel Blackford, program manager and lead analyst for Allied Reliability. Within the presentation, Blackford will define an RKL valve and its proper function as used in controlling the production process and in the flows of production materials. He will also look at the process by which the proper amount of DB/PSI allowable leakage is determined.

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.
