Recently, Reliable Controls was pleased to announce a new initiative that will help its customers minimize waste in the field: eCycle. The eCycle service allows Reliable Controls Authorized Dealers to send non-repairable Reliable Controls and peripheral partner devices to be disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.

The simple, flexible, sustainable controls Reliable Controls has manufactured since 1986 balance comfort and efficiency while helping building managers all over the world reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. One of the hallmarks of the Reliable Controls commitment to true building sustainability is its work to minimize waste in the manufacturing process. This new initiative will help minimize waste even after Reliable Controls products leave the manufacturing floor.

When electrical and electronic equipment, including building controllers, is disposed of properly, electronic materials are recovered and can be used in new products, but programs for proper collection and disposal of e-waste vary widely by region. With the new eCycle service, it doesn’t matter where in the world Reliable Controls customers are; the company will arrange for its Authorized Dealers to ship non-repairable controllers to a responsible recycling partner for disposal and will cover the disposal fees.

The products Reliable Controls manufactures at its Victoria, BC, facility follow the WEEE, RoHS 2, and R2 directives, which set collection, recycling, and recovery targets for electrical goods and restrict the use of certain hazardous substances. The company’s robust in-house recycling and composting program diverts waste and e-waste from landfills and incinerators and helps reduce its environmental impact. With the introduction of eCycle, Authorized Dealers can ensure their customers that the Reliable Controls long-term, better-by-design approach not only provides them with excellent ROI but also mitigates the negative impact of waste management; Reliable Controls products are built responsibly and built to last. That’s a sustainable return on investment.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
