Further Proof That ARTI-64(TM) Removes Arsenic, Copper, Lead, and Zinc
RALEIGH, NC — (MARKET WIRE) — 03/15/2005 — Metals & Arsenic Removal Technology, Inc. (MARTI), a portfolio company of HydroFlo, Inc. (OTC BB: HYRF), announced confirmation of original test results for arsenic removal media, (ARTI- 64(tm)), which effectively removes arsenic, copper, lead, zinc, and sulfates from water.
Original laboratory results were provided by the University of Wyoming when HydroFlo initially acquired the technology in August 2004. Once filtered through the media, it was found that arsenic levels were undetectable. The latest laboratory data was furnished by Environmental Chemist, Inc. These results actually exceeded the outcomes of the initial tests. Environmental Chemist, Inc. analyzed the ARTI-64(tm) compound for the removal of total arsenic, copper, zinc, and lead. The data demonstrated that total arsenic levels were taken from 7.95 parts per million (ppm) to .6 parts per billion (ppb), making arsenic levels virtually undetectable. It also revealed that lead was removed from the contaminated water.
“Even in the presence of contaminants that would ordinarily prevent arsenic removal, the ARTI-64(tm) media was still able to perform at peak levels,” stated George Moore, Chief Operations Officer of MARTI. “I am glad we can bring such an effective technology to the world.”
ARTI-64(tm) media is scheduled to be placed in WAL S.A. (WAL) water filter cartridges for household use to be distributed throughout the Americas this spring. There is also currently a portable filtration unit in production for individuals to take with them anywhere they want clean water. This unit, otherwise known as FATS, was created specifically for military and outdoor usage and prepared to be lightweight and withstand harsh elements.
Dennis L. Mast, CEO of HydroFlo, commented, “As a Business Development Company that is finding and developing new technologies, I am extremely pleased that these tests exceed expectations. MARTI can provide a valuable resource for municipalities as well as industrial clients to provide drinking water for residents. With these results we can achieve HydroFlo’s mission of providing clean water to the world.”
