posted July 09, 2007 REGI U.S., INC. / REG TECHNOLOGIES INC. Announce Successful RADMAX® Pump Testing Complete
For Immediate Release: July 9, 2007. Vancouver, BC - REGI U.S., Inc. (OTC BB: RGUS, Frankfurt Stock Exchange: RGJ) and Reg Technologies Inc. (TSX Venture Exchange: RRE, OTC BB: REGRF) today announced the following RadMax® product development status as reported by Robert Grisar, Vice President of Engineering for the RadMax® / Rand Cam™ technology:
Performance measurements of prototype of RadMax® pump completed. Axial Vane Positive Displacement Pump efficiency validated greater than 80%. Proprietary RadMax® radial shaft seals have been qualified for all low temperature applications (pumps, compressors). Validated ability to run dry, self-prime, and re-acquire prime. Measured suction to exceed 20 feet, lift (head) more than 80 feet.
John Robertson, President of REGI U.S., Inc. and Reg Technologies Inc., states, "The successful RadMax® pump tests moves the Company closer to generating revenue in the worldwide 50 billion dollar pump/compressor market."
Robert Grisar, Vice President of Engineering for the RadMax® / Rand Cam™ technology, states, "The RadMax® technology is a truly revolutionary rotary power concept unlike any other existing technology; RadMax® devices are designed for simplicity, efficiency and power. The compressor / pumps are capable of 48 compressions, expansion or pumping actions per revolution, which makes the RadMax® the lightest weight and most efficient compressor / pump ever designed."
ABOUT REGI U.S., INC. AND REG TECHNOLOGIES INC. REGI U.S., Inc. owns the U.S. rights to the Rand Cam™/RadMax® rotary technology used in the revolutionary design of light weight and high efficiency engines, compressors and pumps. The RadMax ® engine has only two unique moving parts, the vanes (up to 12) and the rotor, compared to the 40 moving parts in a simple four-cylinder piston engine. This innovative design makes it possible to produce up to 24 continuous power impulses per one rotation that is vibration-free and extremely quiet. The RadMax® engine also has multi-fuel capabilities allowing it to operate on fuels including gasoline, natural gas, hydrogen, propane and diesel. REGI U.S., Inc. and parent company Reg Technologies Inc. are currently designing and testing prototype RadMax® diesel engines, compressors and pumps intended for aviation, automotive, industrial processes and military applications.

Keep an eye on this one...in 1 month (my guess) it's go time. GLTA in this issue....potentially huge impact in the pump and compressor fields.
Of course the true dream is that it replaces the reciprocatin engine as the engine of choice. Since it will run on diesel, there is no reason for the oil industry not to fall in love with this little gem. It gets good gas mileage, but nothing to make them go broke. 51 or so miles per gallon for a 125 h.p. engine that weighs 125 pounds, according to teh write-up in Forbes magazine. Not too shabby I'd say.
Do you think that this company will upsize their model to include class 8 trucks or is this just for generator type vehicles? Will they have a tic symbol on US market or only the canadian market?
