23 Apr 12 Dual fuel ranges – Capital Cooking Connoisseurian Series


Capital Cooking is debuting its new dual fuel range cookers at the 2012 KBIS which runs from April 24 to April 26. The new dual fuel Connoisseurian Series incorporates the best technology from company electric ovens and gas ranges, offering both open and sealed burner versions – all self clean in 30″, 36″, 48″ and 60″ configurations. As dual fuel range is getting more popular, Capital Cooking Connoisseurian Series is offering the best attributes of its built-in electric wall ovens and gas cooktops.

Capital engineers incorporated a two-speed cooling fan system in the oven of these dual fuel range cookers. The high, noisier speed is only triggered when the oven is at extreme high temperatures over a long period of time, such as operating the self cleaning mode. Under the normal cooking conditions with temperatures under 400°F for under 2 hours, only the low speed cooling fan that is very quiet and not noticeable in a busy kitchen environment is working.

In addition, Connoisseurian ranges feature the larger ovens, ranking them amongst the top usable capacity of all dual fuel ranges on the market. All primary ovens have Capital exclusive MoistRoast cooking feature that uses moisture, not steam, to produce perfect, moist roasting and baking, and also features Capital popular motorized rotisserie system. The secondary ovens in the 48″ and 60″ sizes are fully functioning with bake, broil, convection, roast and self clean. And for safety, the engineering staff tested the external temperature of a fully operational baking oven and found it to be up to 30°F cooler-to-the-touch than many competitive models.

Offering both open burner and sealed burner system options in the dual fuel Connoisseurian line will appeal to all cooking styles and preferences. The open burner system developed for Capital Culinarian line is ideal for the home chef looking for restaurant power and advanced cooking functionality made possible by the open flame. The sealed burner system that Capital uses in its Precision Series is the most common gas cooktop system where the flame is controlled by burner caps of different sizes. Customers can choose which style of Connoisseurian is appropriate for their own lifestyle.

The dual fuel ranges from Capital Cooking will be sold in 10 standard colors with custom finishes available as well, throughout the United States and Canada at specialty retailers during Summer 2012.

25 Oct 11 Garbage Converted to Fuel, Discovery in Czech Republic

WONG: Czech scientists are carrying out a unique experiment of international importance. They have found out how to change household waste into food for animals and fuel for cars. STORY: Experts in algae and energetic use of wastes have designed a scientific process to transform municipal waste into bio-fuel for cars and good class food for animals. The star performer in the process is algae. Certain algae thrive on the carbon dioxide formed while burning the waste. [Msc Petr Novak, Director for Ecology] male “We were of course surprised too, the quality of algae is so high that they are suitable for utilization in the food-processing industry and at the same time it is confirmation that burnt gas from our wastes incinerator is very clean. As wastes are burnt the smoke-gas goes through a filter and heads for a water bath where scientist have placed algae. Algae transform the burnt gas into protein and from protein they make starch. This starch is used in the production of bio-ethanol to be used in place of petrol. [Petr Novak, Director for Ecology] male “The effect lies mainly in that carbon dioxide forms as much as 50 percent of expenses in the production of algae and here it is actually for free.” Moreover the algae grow 30 times faster than maize or soy from which bio-fuel is commonly produced. The Scientific team will patent their discovery in Europe and the USA. NTDTV, Liberec, Czech Republic

11 Oct 11 MGC’s Direct Methanol Fuel Cell : DigInfo

DigInfo – ( With the increase of companies researching oil alternative fuel sources, Mitsubishi Gas Chemical is developing their Direct Methanol Fuel Cell, DMFC, which uses methanol and the surrounding air to create energy. In MGC’s DMFC, the methanol interacts with a hydrogen ion layer while the air interacts with a Platinum catalyst layer These two layers are separated by a polymer coated electrode catalyst that connects the two layers to create power. The exhaust, Carbon dioxide and water, are separated by MGC’s uniqe exhaust gas control system Because of the improved control of the Platinum catalyst at nano level, reaction efficiency and the long reliability of the electrode, the DMFC can provide 130mW The current model under development has a maximum output of 300W, 4000ml fuel tank, and can run for 8 hours straight. It can be turned on and off with the flip of a switch and used to power appliances such as lights and refrigerators.
