Capstone Turbine

Capstone Turbine, Chatsworth, Ca., offers microturbine power/heat generators fueled by landfill or sewage flare gases (>350Btu/scf). Capstone currently offers 30-kW modules, but a biogas-fueled version of their 60-kW system will be previewed at the 2004 WASTECON and WEFTEC, the company says. Zero-hardware arraying is built in, so any number can be aggregated to generate up to a megawatt or more with multi-module redundancy (such as Capstone's 12-unit LFG-fueled cogeneration deployment near Chicago that was recently named “Project of the Year” by the US EPA). Heavy-duty Capstone MicroTurbines are H2S “sour” tolerant up to 70,000 ppm, have only one moving part, and use no lubricants or coolants. Better combustion and lower emissions than flaring are achieved without any exhaust treatment devices or chemicals. Since introducing microturbines in 1998, the company has sold more than 3,000 worldwide. NEMA3R, UL2200, UL1741, CEC Rule 21, CARB DG 2003, CSA, CE.

The Curotto Can

850 Knight Street
Sonoma, CA 95476
Phone: (707) 939-2802
Web site: www.thecurottocan.com

The Curotto Can, manufactured in Sonoma, California, is an automated system for the pickup of residential carts ranging from 32 to 90 gal. capacity. It takes about a minute to mount the Curotto Can system to the forks of a standard front loader, using a simple three point disconnect. Haulers can then work residential during the day and commercial at night. The Curotto Can has several unique features. The arm is mounted in the back, which provides for a smooth ride and lowers maintenance costs. Also, because of the arm's location, none of the hydraulic components are exposed to accidental damage. The pickup-dump-return cycle is under 5 seconds. The arm has a 602 reach and is of an offset design, which allows more cartloads to be emptied into the Can before dumping into the hopper becomes necessary. The low curbside loading height allows bulky items such as furniture and appliances to be loaded, using either the grabbers or by hand. The opening on the can has a fall-away rubber flap, which allows the lower loading height without sacrificing Can capacity. The Curotto Can system allows haulers to accept ‘take all’ contracts.

Leach Company was founded in 1887 and, in 1932, began manufacturing refuse-collection equipment. At that time, household waste was picked up in unsanitary open-top vehicles.

For 70+ years, Leach has earned a solid reputation as the trusted and durable workhorse of the industry. Wittke is seen as reliable, high-tech and innovative by customers. Now Leach and Wittke are being combined into a single Leach brand that's Stronger All Around.
