Milford, N.H. - Hendrix Molded Products introduces its Cradle-to-Cradle recycling program for the return and recycling of its HPI Polyethylene Insulators Products constructed using #2 recyclable plastic. Familiar household products that are made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) are items such as milk, juice or water containers, liquid detergent bottles as well as margarine and yogurt tubs.

Hendrix has developed polyethylene insulators that not only address the growing concern to minimize our environmental impact, but also as a means of minimizing costs to customers as an incentive to do so. Unlike traditional porcelain insulators, Hendrix's line of HPI Insulators are made from High Density Polyethylene, a #2 recyclable plastic that can be reconstructed for reuse when its product life cycle has ended. As part of Hendrix's new Cradle-to-Cradle program, customers are encouraged to dispose of insulators by sending any used HPI products to a local recycler, or by simply shipping them back to Hendrix for recycling - at no additional cost. To take advantage of the new Cradle-to-Cradle recycling program, simply ship any used HPI Insulators Products to the following address: Hendrix Wire & Cable, Cradle to Cradle Program, 53 Old Wilton Road, Milford, NH 03055-0326.

Hendrix HPI Polyethylene Insulators are suited for both bare wire and covered conductors and offer an alternative solution to porcelain insulators, which are susceptible to vandalism and can be problematic when paired with covered overhead conductors. Impervious to impact damage and breakage, HPI Polyethylene Insulators offer longer leakage distance and higher impulse strength. Additionally, every HPI Polyethylene Insulator easily withstands ultraviolet rays and offers greater track resistance due to the proprietary high-density polyethylene material.

With the ability to resist wear and tear, including chipping, cracking or breaking, Hendrix HPI Polyethylene Insulators have an increased lifespan over competitor's products. Additionally, the insulators accept any conductor or tie and can be used interchangeably with porcelain insulators.

The Hendrix Molded Products division has been offering innovative product solutions to the electric utility industry for over 40 years. For more information about the Polyethylene Insulators and other products and service solutions from Hendrix, please visit www.hendrix-wc.com.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
