Generator set

The Ecostar is the first hydrogen-fueled internal combustion engine-driven genset. Because the unit operates on pure hydrogen, the only carbon-based emissions are from a small amount of burned and unburned oil present in the combustion chamber. The engine is coupled to a Class H, 2-pole, brushless, self-regulating alternator with a winding pitch designed to reduce the harmonic content of the output waveform. It's capable of producing 91.2kW and 114kVA at 480V in 3-phase power and 75kW and 75kVA at 277V in single-phase power.

Hand towels

Kleaners are pre-moistened 9-in. × 11-in. towels packaged in resealable foil packets. They combine a synthetic towel with a liquid cleaner in a sink-free hand cleaning system. The cleaning ingredient is a natural citrus solvent, d-Limonene, which cuts oils, tar, adhesives, asphalt, wax, graphite, and other on-the-job soils. It's gentler to the skin than petroleum-based hand cleaners.
