IT REDUCES NOX EMISSIONS AND WORKS AS CLAIMED
Alton Southern Railroad Test Results Confirm RxP Eliminates Black Smoke
EAST ST. LOUIS, IL, June 27, 2002 -- Alton Southern Railroad today
announced the completion of a three-month test of RxP, a fuel additive
marketed by RxP Products, Inc. The purpose of the test was to determine
fuel economy and particulate emissions in locomotive engines.
"We did a baseline test in April," said Bob Cizek, Vice President of
Industrial Sales for RxP Products, Inc. "Then we ran the engine with
fuel containing RxP for a couple of months, then retested. The test
showed an overall reduction in particulates of 26%, which backs up
tests we did earlier with Terminal Railroad and Metro East Industries.
This indicates a more efficient burn and is directly related to fuel
Cizek said fuel economy improvement "under load" was approximately
2.56%, which would result in a considerable savings to the railroad.
"You could just see there was no black smoke coming out of the
locomotive when it was working the hump [making up a new train]," said
Dennis Korando, Mechanical Foreman of Alton Southern Railroad in East
St. Louis. Korando was involved in the three-month test.
Fuel economy tests on locomotive engines usually focus on engines that
are under load at different notches (RPM settings). The fuel is weighed
at each notch with and without the additive to determine the true fuel
economy. A 2.56% savings is approximately one gallon saved for every
thirty-nine used. However, locomotive engines that work in a switchyard
spend much of their time idling.
"There is much more to fuel economy than just the amount of fuel that
can be saved when the engine is under load," explained RxP Products,
Inc. President, Don Woodward. "Only a small percent of the fuel is used
to provide the power to overcome inertia, air drag, friction and
rolling resistance, which are the forces that work against motion.
"Our technology works by increasing the thermal value of the fuel being
used," explained Woodward. "We call this the theory of radiant
containment. Based on a recent test we know that RxP will increase the
thermal value of biomass, which is about as basic a fuel as you can
get, by 13.2%."
Breaking it down to its very basics, fuel is converted into heat to
power the engine. Almost 70% of this energy is lost to the mechanical
process of operating the engine. Another 17% is wasted when the engine
is idling. This leaves only 13% to actually run the engine.
"When an engine is idling, it is getting zero miles per gallon.
However, if you increase the thermal value of the fuel by 13.2% you are
actually using less fuel even when the engine is not moving. In other
words you can sit there longer while idling. I think we can safely say
that if we apply this 13.2% increase in thermal value to the 30% of the
fuel that is used for power or wasted when idling you can say that RxP
will increase the overall fuel economy by approximately 4%. This is a
significant savings over the cost of using our additive and not related
to restoring efficiency lost to an aging engine," says Woodward.
Woodward also said that an undetermined amount of fuel is saved by the
process of radiant containment on that part of the fuel that is wasted
to the mechanical process of the internal combustion engine. If the
theory is correct, the flame made during combustion is hotter inside
and cooler outside. This provides more kinetic energy, used to actually
push the piston down and create power, and less radiant energy, which
is lost as heat penetrating the cylinder walls, etc. The engine runs
cooler and the process of a more complete combustion eliminates carbon
buildup inside the combustion chamber and exhaust system.
Decarbonization of the engine is the key factor in maintaining good
fuel economy and RxP certainly does that, but this only restores the
engine to its original efficiency. It is the increase in thermal value
that actually increases fuel economy above what the engine would get
burning fuel that does not contain RxP.
While the opacity tests were being conducted at Alton Southern,
Intertek Testing Services Caleb Brett labs in Tampa, Florida analyzed a
sample of diesel fuel. The analysis showed that RxP did not change the
American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard for diesel
fuel, meaning it would not affect an engine manufacturer warranty.
"Seeing is believing," said Korando. "When you look in the stacks of
the engine, the interiors are completely white. Also, I inspected the
injectors. They were white and clean. This can only be attributed to
the use of the additive."
TERMINAL RAILROAD REDUCES SMOKE FROM LOCOMOTIVE ENGINES
St. Louis, MO, September 6, 2001 -- The Terminal Railroad Association
of St. Louis has undertaken a project to reduce pollution by using a
combustion enhancer fuel additive to help clean the air in St. Louis,
according to Terminal President, W. D. Spencer.
According to Spencer, since treatment began in June tests have shown
that pollution (soot) emitted from the locomotive stacks has been
reduced by forty to ninety-two percent. In addition to the locomotive
engines, railroad equipment such as graders and cranes have been tested
with the same combustion enhancer and shown reductions of carbon
monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) in the
range of fifty to seventy-two percent.
"We have a responsibility to our community to do our share to reduce
pollution" said Mr. Spencer. "Not only have we reduced air pollution,
but because our engines are burning cleaner and more efficiently, we
are realizing a net fuel savings of approximately $110,000 annually
thanks to this combustion enhancer - RxP."
RxP is the only product known to reduce CO, HC and NOx emissions,
according to Don Woodward, President of RxP Products, Inc. and supplier
of the combustion-enhancing additive.
"They don't smoke like they use to," says Terminal Manager of
Locomotives, Phil Daley. "After we started using RxP the yardmen
couldn't tell when the engines were running by just looking at the
Every locomotive that is fueled at the St. Louis site is now being
treated with RxP according to Spencer.
"We are supplying Terminal with the most advanced combustion technology
on the market," says Woodward. "This technology works in all fuels;
gasoline, ethanol, diesel, jet fuel, biodiesel, natural gas, coal or
any other hydrocarbon fuel."
Fuel consumption tests monitored and administered by Metro East
Industries and the opacity tests showing the reduction in pollution,
verify that Terminal Railroad is helping to clean up the air in St.
RxP Products Announces Combustion Technology Reduces Oxides Of Nitrogen
Emissions In Biodiesel; Supreme Oil Chosen to Market Technology
St. Petersburg, Florida, June 26 -- RxP Products, Inc.
(http://www.rxp.com ) President Don Woodward announced today that
Arizona based Supreme Oil has been chosen to market technology used to
reduce carbon monoxide (CO) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions from
Tests conducted June 13, 2001 on a boiler at St. Mary's Medical Center
in Long Beach by World Environmental, a laboratory approved by the
South Coast Air Quality Management District, showed a significant
decrease in CO and NOx emissions when biodiesel treated with an
additive supplied by RxP was used.
"The allowable limits were 40 parts per million (ppm) of NOx and 400
ppm of CO," said Chris Sellars, a representative from Supreme Oil's
Long Beach, California office who was present for the tests.
"The CO readings were seventy-four percent (74%) below the requirements
and the NOx readings were thirty percent (30%) under," said Sellars.
"This boidiesel blend also surpassed earlier results on natural gas."
"We assume many people from the biodiesel industry will be interested
in this technology," says Woodward. "Although biodiesel is a much
cleaner burning fuel than petrodiesel, sales of this new alternative
fuel have been hampered by the NOx problem."
Woodward maintains the addition of this technology to biodiesel will
not significantly impact the selling price of biodiesel.
"We presently sell additives for gasoline and diesel engines through
leading retailers like Wal-Mart and AutoZone Auto Parts Stores," says
Woodward. "Our technology has been field tested by hundreds of
thousands of real users over millions of miles of normal driving
conditions. We also supply products used in locomotive and marine
engines. Our technology works in all hydrocarbon combustion."
"We will have our skeptics, and should," says Woodward, "and we expect
testing to be an ongoing and day-to-day activity in this field of
study. But to my knowledge, we have the only technology around that
will reduce NOx and CO emissions in biodiesel. Others are welcomed to
TERMINAL RAILROAD BEGINS USING CLEANER BURNING FUEL
St. Petersburg, Florida, 4/3/01 -- RxP Products, Inc. President Don
Woodward announced today that Terminal Railroad Association of St.
Louis would begin using fuel treated with RxP, an emissions-reducing
Terminal Railroad Association President W. D. Spencer said, "It is
everyone's responsibility to improve our environment. Beginning in May
all locomotives fueled at our facility will be treated with RxP. Our
goal is to help St. Louis improve air quality."
The Terminal Railroad Association consists of two major railroad
companies: Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Norfolk Southern. They use
approximately 700,000 gallons of fuel monthly. All thirty-four of the
locomotives used daily by Terminal, plus all the on-line engines that
pass through the switch yard, will be using the RxP treated fuel.
"We made the decision to utilize fuel treated with RxP technology after
tests indicated significant reductions in exhaust emissions, while
simultaneously providing cost savings," Spencer said.
According to Woodward, tests were conducted on locomotive engines over
a two-year period. "We worked very closely with the railroads and will
continue to perform tests and monitor the equipment in order to advance
our knowledge of the combustion process and to keep track of the
RxP is sold nationwide as an over-the-counter fuel additive in auto
parts stores like AutoZone and Discount Auto Parts as well as Wal-Mart.
"Air pollution is a serious and growing problem in this nation and in
the world," says Woodward. "RxP is an economical solution, but not one
necessarily favored by the oil companies who shun technology that
reduces the amount of fuel used. However, with participation from
business and industry we can make a significant difference in air
FLORIDA COMPANY HAS STAKE IN CLEAN AIR
Byline: Ongoing research into emissions reduction shows promise.
St. Petersburg, Florida, 04/18/00 - RxP Products, Inc. President, Don
Woodward, reports tests conducted by the U.S. Air Force show
significant reduction in particulate emissions using technology his
company bottles and sells as a fuel additive.
Particulate emissions are a toxic air contaminant. Such emissions from
diesel and jet engines contain minute particles that adhere to the
lining of the lungs. These tiny particles are difficult to expel and
can lead to serious health effects, including cancer and other
A fuel additive sold under the brand name, RxP, could significantly
reduce these dangerous pollutants according to recent findings.
"Tests conducted by the AIR FORCE RESEARCH LABORATORY showed a
fifty-two percent (52%) reduction in particulates at cruise power,"
says inventor Dean F. Johnson. "These tests were conducted using an
advanced combustor simulator."
Since jet engines spend ninety percent (90%) of their time at cruise
the reductions in particulates in the atmosphere is notable.
Captain Rob Mantz, who oversaw the tests at the Air Force test
facilities at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, points
out that the reduction in particulates is interesting as the jet engine
is already quite clean compared to other engines.
According to Johnson, the Air Force test coincides with tests conducted
on railroad engines last year that showed a seventy-one percent (71%)
reduction in particulates and a sixty-five percent (65%) reduction in
oxides of nitrogen (NOx). The reduction in NOx emissions has a direct
effect on cleaning up air pollution. The effects of sunlight
interacting with NOx in the atmosphere causes the formation of smog.
"When the funding becomes available the Air Force plans to conduct
further tests on RxP," says Johnson.
Ongoing tests being conducted by a retired naval office, Mark Sherman,
now president of the Classic Jet Aircraft Association (CJAA), have also
"In an F104 with a J79 engine we have eliminated smoking and recorded
an average eight percent (8%) savings in fuel. This is a significant
savings in a jet engine," says Sherman.
RxP Gas Kicker, which is made using the same technology, is sold at two
of the nation's largest auto parts chains - AutoZone Auto Parts
Stores and Florida based Discount Auto Parts, according to Woodward.
"RxP has gained a reputation with the consumer, not only as a way to
pass a mandatory emissions test," says Woodward, "but also to clean out
a dirty engine. Each bottle we sell helps clean the air." Johnson and
Woodward say the goal is to put the technology in every gallon of fuel
used in the world.
Johnson also claims the technology would make a viable replacement for
MTBE (methyl tertiary butyl ether), the fuel additive mandated by the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that was touted to significantly
reduce automobile emissions. The EPA recently announced that MTBE would
be phased out over concerns of contaminating water supplies around the
