6 December 1999

CleanAIR Systems Inc. announced opening of a new emission testing and research facility equipped with three engine dynamometers and emission monitoring equipment.

The computer-controlled monitoring equipment measures emissions of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter. CleanAIR Systems can now test a variety of emission catalysts on a variety of engines to determine the catalysts' effects on engine emissions and performance. Engines from 2 to 1,500 horsepower may be tested, including diesel, gasoline and propane engines used in light- to heavy-duty applications.

"This testing equipment gives us unlimited opportunities for research and development," said CleanAIR President and CEO Michael Roach, "allowing us to develop new products and design products for specific applications that make engine emissions safer for the environment".

Since the facility is located at high altitude in Santa Fe, NM, CleanAIR can simulate altitudes from 500 feet to 7,000 feet above sea level during testing, which offers the ability to develop specific products for high-altitude applications.

CleanAIR Systems manufactures catalytic converters, converter/muffler systems and particulate filters for all types of diesel engines. The company also produces converters for propane and gasoline engines.
