TAMPA, Fla. -- MagneGas Corporation ('MagneGas' or the 'Company') (NASDAQ: MNGA), a technology company that counts among its inventions a patented process that converts liquid waste into a hydrogen-based fuel, announced today that the Company released an independently produced video demonstrating the stability of MagneGas2®.
In order to clearly demonstrate the stability of MagneGas2® as compared to Acetylene, MagneGas Corporation contracted with the independent company Operator LLC, run by former Military Operations Special Forces, who worked with local police and fire officials to shoot 50 caliber incendiary rounds into a cylinder of Acetylene and a cylinder of MagneGas2®.
Acetylene, while commonly used, is one of the most dangerous industrial gases available on the market due to its unstable chemical composition and heavier than air characteristics. MagneGas2® has been independently tested to be a stable compressed gas and has lighter than air characteristics making it safer than acetylene.
As expected, the acetylene cylinder erupted into flames and burned for over 10 minutes emitting a black soot while the MagneGas2® cylinder was vented with no ignition even though it too was pierced with an incendiary round.
'Following months of planning and safety reviews with Scott Neil at Operator LLC, a former Special Operations Forces, along with other subject matter experts back in early April, MagneGas completed a gas stability test with dramatic results,' commented Ermanno Santilli, CEO of MagneGas Corporation 'We are pleased to be able to graphically demonstrate the superiority of MagneGas2 vs. acetylene and we will continue with third party validation of these claims.'
