Independent Testing Results Confirm Significant Fuel Savings and Emissions Reductions Produced by CavitroniX™’s Technology for Oil-Fired Boilers and Generators
Fuel Savings of 9% and Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) Emission Reductions of 17% Are Confirmed with New Cavitation Blending Technology
Bristol, VA – April 9, 2013 – CavitroniX™ Corporation, whose technology improves the efficiency of oil-fired boilers, announced today that independent tests utilizing EPA protocols and ASME standards by a leading research institute confirm that the market-ready CavitroniX™ E2C® system for oil-fired boilers and generators produces significant fuel savings as well as a major reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
Armed with the test findings from RTI International, CavitroniX™ has launched its Go-to-Market Strategy by raising visibility and awareness for the E2C®’s innovative solution. In addition, CavitroniX™ is working to drive the technology into stationary oil-fired boilers across its target markets, including industrial plants, schools, commercial properties and multi-housing properties. The need for the E2C® system is being driven by a combination of rising fuel prices and increasing pressure from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and state/local governments to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases such as NOx and carbon dioxide (CO2).
According to the RTI International report, firing the tested boiler using the CavitroniX™ E2C® unit provided up to a 9 percent increase in fuel efficiency, while reducing NOx emissions up to 17 percent. These results are consistent with CavitroniX™’s internal testing data and previous third party testing that has been conducted on the E2C® technology by Power Mechanical, Inc.
“These rigorous and reliable test results, from one of the world’s leading research institutes focused on energy and the environment, confirm that our new E2C® system delivers a much needed solution that produces immediate expense savings, can reduce foreign oil dependency by saving fuel and lower the environmental impact of oil-fired industrial boilers and heating equipment and generators,” said Thomas David, CavitroniX™ CEO and President. “These tests results also confirmed that in many operations the fuel savings will recover the cost of the E2C® unit within 18 months or less.”
RTI International’s testing of the CavitroniX™ E2C® system was conducted using a boiler configured with steam exhausted to the atmosphere and outfitted with instrumentation to monitor key parameters. Testing was done over a four-day period and showed reduced fuel consumption and reduced NOx emissions when using the cavitation blending technology, according to the institute’s report.
Early feedback from users of the E2C® system has been encouraging. According to William “Bill” Romoser, a retired U.S. Navy boiler engineering officer and Technical Committee Chair of Calvary Episcopal Church in Front Royal, Va., “The E2C® system has been installed on two boilers at the Church’s office building since 2010 burning a 90% oil/10% water mixture. We have obtained an estimated fuel savings of 10%, while reducing our emissions footprint. We are pleased to have been the beta test site for this important new fuel-savings and environmentally beneficial technology.”
Meanwhile, at Virginia Highlands Community College (VHCC) in Abingdon, Va., President Ron Proffitt said, “VHCC is excited to incorporate the CavitroniX™ system into its existing HVAC curriculum to expose our students to this cutting edge technology. We are continually evaluating important new technologies and believe the CavitroniX system will help fulfill that mission.”
