EnerTeck has exclusive license to the PEx technology which was developed and patented by Indian Technologies LLC.
PEx, which is a pseudonym for Particulate Extraction, uses volumetric expansion and contraction to drop the majority
of the particulate matter from an exhaust stream. This technology is in the latter stages of obtaining CARB approval.
We expect to run final testing on the vessel where the evaluation unit has been operating for over 7000 hours, by the end of June, 2013.
If approved by CARB we will immediately apply for a read-across to the EPA for approval since the CARB standards
are stricter than the EPA standards. Obtaining these approvals will be a major milestone for EnerTeck as the target market is large and
untapped. We have customers waiting for these approvals to come through to begin outfitting their engines with the PEx technology.
The Particulate Extraction Unit (PEx) is a modular device that uses gas velocity changes to create increased slip velocity and
temperature reduction to remove particulate, acids, heavy metals, plus furans and dioxins and other items that
tend to cling to the particulate. A plurality of chambers is used to increase and decrease the gas velocity
in an undulating manner. Two versions of the PEx are available to the marine industry to meet the exact need
of each vessel. The first type unit (Type 1) is smaller as it is designed only to bring Tier 0 engines to Tier 1.
The second type, Type 2, is designed to reach Tier 2 and potentially Tier 4 standards.
