dynaCERT Reaches Major Milestone in Third Party Validation

- November 15th, 2016

TORONTO, ON–(Marketwired – November 15, 2016) – dynaCERT Inc. (TSXV:DYA; OTC:DYFSF) is pleased to announce that a major milestone has been reached in the development and validation of their HydraGen™ unit for Class 8 truck application. Fuel consumption and emissions testing of the HydraGen™ unit on a Class 8 truck while exposed to real world road load and environmental conditions was carried out using the Climatic Wind Tunnel (CWT) of the Automotive Centre of Excellence (ACE) at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) in Oshawa, Ontario.

TORONTO, ON–(Marketwired – November 15, 2016) – dynaCERT Inc. (TSXV:DYA; OTC:DYFSF) is pleased to announce that a major milestone has been reached in the development and validation of their HydraGen™ unit for Class 8 truck application. Fuel consumption and emissions testing of the HydraGen™ unit on a Class 8 truck while exposed to real world road load and environmental conditions was carried out using the Climatic Wind Tunnel (CWT) of the Automotive Centre of Excellence (ACE) at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) in Oshawa, Ontario.

The objective of this dynamometer testing was to simulate real-life environments with high accuracy and repeatable conditions on an in-service Class 8 truck to determine how much H2/O2 was required for a minimum of 8% fuel reduction while at the same time maintaining the same power and torque.

Fuel consumption was measured by rerouting the fuel supply system to an external fuel drum placed on a precision scale. As fuel was consumed the scale measured the weight of the drum over the time of the test. The fuel weight and time were recorded by the CWT data acquisition system. Emissions were measured by using portable emissions equipment supplied by dynaCERT.

Several trials were done with two different Class 8 tractors at different combinations of velocity, force load and H2/O2settings.

There was 20+ hours of testing completed producing over 550 pages of valuable data which has been instrumental in the further development and algorithms for our new Smart ECU.

While altering flow of gases, and depending on different settings of H2/O2, test results verified a range of fuel consumption reductions from 2.7% to 19.2% equally on post EGR and pre-EGR engines.

Emission reduction ranged from 10% to 40% of greenhouse gases (Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen Oxide) and greater than 65% reduction in particulate matter.
