ScreeTech Report – Autumn 2016

EU Coach Trial reports 5.9% fuel saving and NYC air gets cleaner   Dublin Coach Trial show 5.9% fuel saving     After 6 months, a trial of WorldKlass IR Canister™ at Dublin Coach, shows savings of 5.9% in engine fuel consumption. This trial used a year-long baseline comparing 5 vehicles fitted with the canister to 5 unchanged vehicles. The saving shown by the Dublin Coach trial is an important milestone in ScreeTech’s activities in Europe. Working towards the goal of cleaner diesel, ScreeTech is in contact with several UK bus companies, interested in the outcome and the free trial offer for qualifying early adopters. Get in touch for the full report Cleaner air     Garbage truck is what they call them over there. But whilst gathering municipal waste from the streets of New York City, the vehicles are pumping out NOx and particulate matter, impacting local air quality. Department of Sanitation New York has just completed a customer dyno trial on one of their trucks fitted with WorldKlass IR Canister™. On top of fuel reduction of 4.8%, this trial showed a 45% reduction in particular matter (PM). This is expected from the cleaner, more complete combustion achieved using the patented InfraRed process. These results are great news not only for New York, but for the many urban areas failing European Air Quality standards.

EU Coach Trial nears completion and Carbon Centre gets festive Bus Trial in Dublin shows promising results Preliminary data from an ongoing trial in Dublin, home town of ScreeTech CEO Jim Stout, shows savings around 6% in engine fuel consumption. This trial, across 10 double deck buses is using a year-long baseline and working to gather 6 months of trial data, comparing 5 vehicles fitted with WorldKlass IR Canister™ to 5 unchanged vehicles. This is the first trial in Europe and compares well to the results seen in the USA over the past 8 years. ScreeTech is in contact with several UK bus companies interested in the outcome with a view to availing of the free trial offer for first adopters. Net cost savings are over €2.5k per vehicle, for no upfront investment. Watch this space for final results.

ScreeTech Report – Spring, 2016(update)

2016USA focus: Supporting Fleet replacement cycle with WorldKlass and Snowzilla brings record snowfall to New York. Fleet Replacement Cycle – A Circular Economy Product gets reused Jim Stout, CEO ScreeTech, visited a long term trial client of WorldKlass in Pennsylvania to view the retrieval of WorldKlass IR Canisters™, as part of a fleet replacement cycle. These canisters have saved 5% fuel on the client’s trucks and 10% fuel on their refrigerated trailers(reefers), producing an annual fuel reduction of 2900 litres for trucks and 628 litres for reefers. Some 60 truck and reefer units were at the end of their life or had accident damage beyond economic repair. One of the circular economy features of this WorldKlass product is that canisters can be retrieved in such circumstances, and reused in replacement vehicles.   It was fun climbing over snow drifts to get access to the vehicles and see what’s involved in removing WorldKlass canisters. A fairly quick and simple procedure, a feature of which (apart from the snowdrifts) was a large bucket for collecting the diesel from the units. These units went back to WorldKlass for refurbishment. While we were there, the client agreed to an uplift on units fitting to maintain a 50% coverage across an expanding fleet as part of the long term trial. [Update Spring 2017 – roll-out across the entire fleet of 1000 reefers has been approved and under way.] Snowzilla Snowfall in Central Park, at 27.5 inches, set an all-time record for New York City.  Snowdrifts can be fun, but the blizzard conditions in the USA have brought much of the country to a standstill. Classed...
