Advanced Engineering Based on Proven Turbine Design

The Capstone Microturbine

Capstone power generation solutions help to improve operations by putting the end-user in control of their energy costs. Advanced engineering and more than 100 patents put Capstone microturbines in a class of their own. By integrating an aero-based turbine engine, a magnetic generator, advanced power electronics, with patented air bearing technology, Capstone microturbines are the ideal solution for today's distributed energy needs.

Capstone Microturbines operate on a variety of fuels, including natural gas, associated gas, biogas, LPG/propane, and liquid fuels (diesel, kerosene, and aviation fuel). In resource recovery applications, microturbines burn waste gases that would otherwise be flared or released directly into the atmosphere.

Capstone microturbines feature low maintenance air bearing technology, the lowest emissions of any non-catalyzed gas combustion engine, and digital power conversion to stand as the optimal power generation solution.

The ability to operate on a wide variety of gaseous and liquid fuels makes our microturbines stand out as a robust source of clean power.

Capstone microturbines can be installed individually or in a “multi-pack” configuration and function in parallel with or independently from the local power grid. Our microturbines are compact, quiet and lightweight and provide reliable energy when and where it's needed.
