This rigid PVC pipe is made to schedule 40 dimensions, but it's transparent, with only a slight blue tint, making it easy to see what's inside it. Built for laboratories, food and beverage processing, sight gauges, pharmaceutical manufacture, hospital use, chemical processing, dry food lines and other applications, the pipe and fittings are made from a clear, virgin grade, PVC compound. The ingredients are non-toxic, conform to FDA food contact standards, and the compound is listed by the National Sanitation Foundation for use with potable water. It doesn't need ties or clamps to hold it upright or level, and may be used with standard schedule 40 fittings of gray or white. The Clear-40 pipe and fittings are non-conductive and flame retardant, with a U.L. rating of 94 VO. It comes in ¼ through 4-inch nominal pipe sizes, and fittings come in 90 and 45-degree elbow, T, male and female adapter, coupler, reducer bushing, and cap fittings styles. Optional configurations include bell-shaped ends, other fitting configurations, longer lengths, and schedule 80 dimensions.
Using wireless chips and accessories, engineers can now extract data from the unlikeliest of places -- pumps, motors, bridges, conveyors, refineries, cooling towers, parking garages, down-hole drills and just about anything else that can benefit from monitoring.
With strong marketplace demand for qualified engineers across the board that currently outstrips the available supply, there may never be a better time for engineers and project managers to advance their careers and salaries. Whether those moves are successful in the short-term and long-term is likely to depend on how the transition from one job to the next is handled.
