Wash-Water Treatment System

The CLPB series is the first wash-water treatment system to integrate mechanical filtration and bioremediation. Integration of the two technologies eliminates need for chlorine to sanitize waste stream. The two technologies work together to treat emulsified oils and suspended solids such as clay or silt. Proprietary BioStax microbes, along with a time-sequenced aeration of bacteria, control odor and create degradation of total petroleum hydrocarbons, fuels, benzenes, oils and grease.

Containers may be tasked with virtually all of the same dry-handling applications as original line of containers with payloads up to 600 lbs.

Hydraulic Launch-Assist Hybrid Vehicle

Ideal for vocational stop-and-go refuse applications, the Model 320 hydraulic launch-assist (HLA) hybrid vehicle offers the potential to improve fuel economy, reduce emissions and reduce maintenance service. HLA technology recovers up to 75 percent of the energy normally lost as heat by the vehicle's brakes in the form of pressurized hydraulic fluid. Fluid is stored in an onboard accumulator until the driver accelerates the vehicle.

Biometric Terminals

Biometric HandPunch time and attendance terminals help conserve natural resources by using a person's hand as his or her timecard. No paper, wood, chemicals or water are needed to produce paper timecards, which typically are discarded after 1 week of use. HandPunch terminals ensure that employees earn a day's pay only when they are present to do a day's work. Identities are verified in less than 1 second, making it quick and easy for employees to punch in and out.
