Reliability Services: As the clock ticks
away, the single
value of reliability
in your operation is
to maximize uptime.
When you can count on
your machines running without
interruption you can plan on
productivity and profitability.
But the cost of unplanned
downtime can be measured in idle
workers, missed deadlines and
disappointed customers. These all
translate into losses that impact
your bottom line.
So what is a predictive and
preventive maintenance program
really worth to your operation’s
Dreisilker Line Card: A quick reference guide to our complete electric motor solutions to commercial, industrial and municipal customers.

We specialize in Motor-Safe™ Repair methods using non-burnout stripping, accurate and precise rewinding, advanced varnishing, dynamic balancing, and thorough testing.

Yaskawa Drives: Significant Cost Savings Using HVAC Drives For Buildings. Energy usage in a typical office
building costs the owner between
$1 and $3 per square foot. The
air handling systems account for
around 28% and the cooling
systems for about 24% of the
electricity consumed. That’s
roughly half of your electric bill.
You have the means of reducing
air handling and cooling energy
costs by 20%.
For a 100,000 sq. ft. building,
total savings can range from
$10,000 to $30,000 every year.
The key to savings on this scale
is the judicious use of variable
frequency drives (VFD). Dreisilker is an authorized distributor of Yaskawa VFDs with the expertise to fit the right system to your application.
