Tork Aluminium Dispenser and its functions

The Tork Aluminium dispensers was launched recently in the year of 2008 as an alternative to stainless steel washroom dispensers. Tork Aluminium dispensers naturally saves around 30-40 per cent over the cost of stainless steel alternatives. The internal mechanisms of Tork Aluminium dispensers are made from plastic which eliminates sharp edges and reduces the weight of the unit. Aluminium is also resistant to fingermarks and it can be cleaned by using any detergent. It is easy to clean and maintain since sharp edges are present in the internal sections. The solid plastic backplate makes Tork Aluminium dispensers more stable. It is easy to load and open design provides high visibility for replacing things. Plastic cores within the dispenser can be easily adjusted to a wider width by adding optional 3/8" wide spacers. Labels are not included with this dispenser.

The main application reveals to those who care about their washrooms. This type of dispensers are particularly popular in designer hotels, advertising agencies and solicitors’ offices and so on. The functional design and smooth surface of the dispensers also make them highly practical because they are easy to use.

Energy Efficiency Labelling

The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department runs a voluntary Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme for appliances and equipment used in the home and office, and for petrol-powered vehicles. Manufacturers, importers can join the scheme to promote their environmentally responsible products. The labels that are issued provide information on energy consumption and efficiency to help you make better purchasing decisions.

Currently there are two types of energy labels the market.They are,
  1. The Gradiant-type energy label and
  2. The Recognition type energy label

The Gradiant-type Energy Label:

The grading-type energy label tells you how much energy an appliance is likely to consume in a year of average use. It also grades that energy efficiency on a scale of one to five, with one being the most efficient and five the least efficient. More generally, grading-type energy labels apply to:
  1. Room coolers
  2. Refrigerators
  3. Washing machines
  4. Electric storage water heaters
  5. Electric clothes dryers

A registration number is issued to each classified brand, so you can rest assured that it has met the Government's exacting standards.

The Recognition-type Energy Label:

The recognition-type energy label does not grade an appliance's energy efficiency. Rather, it tells you that the product has been certified to meet the minimum energy efficiency and performance requirements. The following products are issued with the recognition-type energy label:

  1. Compact fluorescent lamps
  2. Photocopiers
  3. Multifunction devices
  4. Electric rice cookers
  5. Dehumidifiers
  6. Laser printers
  7. Television sets
  8. LCD monitors
  9. Domestic instantaneous gas water heaters
  10. Electronic ballasts
  11. Computers
  12. Fax machines
  13. Hot/cold bottled water dispenser

Products that carry the recognition-type energy label are registered by the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department.

Pesticide Product Label System (PPLS)

The Pesticide Product Label System is a collection of images, in multi-page TIFF format, of pesticide labels which have been approved by the Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) under Section 3 of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). There are differences, however, between labels in PPLS and those in the market place.

The collection contains:

  • The initially approved label for pesticide products registered under FIFRA Section 3.
  • Subsequent versions of labels which have changed via amendment or notification.

  • Associated correspondence about the terms of registration, specifying any
    changes which the registrant was required to make in the final printed label.

Label images are indexed by EPA registration number and the date on which the label was initially registered or amended. Because some label amendments address only portions of the label, you may have to review several labels for a single product to determine the complete terms of registration.

Limitations of the Pesticide Product Label System:
  • Products which have been subsequently canceled or transferred are not identified in the collection

  • Image quality, collection completeness and other Limitations of the Pesticide Product Label System.
