dynaCERT (TSX.V-DYA) announced that a major milestone had been reached in the development and validation of their HydrGenTM unit for Class 8 truck application. Fuel consumption and emissions testing of the HydraGenTM unit on a Class 8 truck while exposed to real world road load and environmental conditions was carried out using the Climate Wind Tunnel (CWT) of the Automotive Centre of Excellence (ACE) at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) in Oshawa, Ontario.
Several trials were done with two different Class 8 tractors at different combinations of velocity, force load and H2/O2 settings.
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.
Jim Payne, President & CEO of dynaCERT states, “We are pleased to announce these positive results. The management and engineering team at ACE was a pleasure to work with. Their professionalism and commitment to work through 20+ straight hours of testing was very impressive. As a Canadian company, we look forward to an ongoing relationship working with this state of the art Canadian facility, the “Automotive Centre of Excellence”, as we further develop our product suite and offering to the market.”
