TULSA, OK (PRWEB) December 15, 2004
TechLite, Inc. (http://www.techlite.com) of Tulsa, Oklahoma (OTC Bulletin Board: THLT) has agreed to become a major distributor of Frigi-Tech, a halogenated hydrocarbon compound used to improve mechanical efficiency of refrigeration, air conditioning, chiller, heat pump, and hermetically sealed lubrication systems.
The US Department of Energy has mandated that all new A/C units have a 30% energy reduction by 2006. By adding Frigi-Tech and the American Society of Heating Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) award winning OAM Oil Purger to its product line TechLite is in a positive position to help its old and new customers save additional energy (money) and comply with government mandates relating to reducing Energy consumption.
When Frigi-Tech is added to compressor refrigerant streams, Frigi-Tech acts immediately to reduce internal friction between refrigerant and metal surfaces and to enhance heat-exchange capability. Frigi-Tech reduces power consumption, provides oxidation and corrosion protection, and extends the useful life of capital equipment. It is compatible with all popular refrigerant compounds.
In a thirty-eight day controlled test at Rockwell Space Operations in Houston, Frigi-Tech was added to the refrigerant stream of one of two 20 ton dual stage compressors. Of the two identical compressors, Frigi-Tech was added to the compressor with normal power consumption 25 percent higher than its companion compressor. Some eight days after treatment with Frigi-Tech, the power consumption of the treated compressor was consistently at or below that of the untreated compressor. The economic payback period to treat all of the facilityÂs thirty dual-compressor units was projected to be ten months.
TechLite president, J.D. Arvidson states, ÂWe are pleased to add Frigi-Tech to our line of energy conservation products and services. Power costs are a major contributor to every organizationÂs operating overhead. TechLiteÂs products and services help reduce the cost of operating a building by 20% or more: All TechLite upgrades simply pay for themselves by a reduction in the utility bill.Â
Frigi-Tech is manufactured by Frigi-Tech International, Inc., headquartered in Houston, Texas.
