Energotest Fall 2015 Campaign
The PIT Group recently conducted its latest Energotest campaign—an event that aims to provide precise, independent, indisputable data on the economic and environmental impact of green technologies. This 2015 fall edition was held in Blainville, September 9-18, and tested eight technologies proposed by manufacturers or in-house tests. Here is a summary of the main tests conducted:
The FuelAid System is a molecular optimization technology that makes it possible, by installing magnetic components, to energize motor vehicle engines for better performance and engine longevity. The FuelAid System components are installed along the gas, water and air intake lines of various types of recreational and transport vehicles. The tests conducted by the PIT Group aimed at confirming the improvement to fuel consumption on transport trucks.
The Forever Green technology uses quantum science to reduce emissions and cut operating costs through greater energy efficiency. With the help of a software system, Forever Green pre-treats the fuel in the tank by sending targeted frequencies enabling the combustion of impurities at the time of new fuel intake into the engine, making these impurities inert.
Xstream Trucking technology consists of a friction reduction system that makes it possible to cut down on fuel consumption in trucks. The system, made up of a canvas-covered metallic structure designed to become activated based on the speed of the vehicle and to deploy the structure, which then fills the gap between the truck and its trailer. This device claims to reduce fuel consumption through improved aerodynamics of the vehicle, making the truck more streamlined.
The PIT Group, at its members’ request, tested high-efficiency tires in comparison to universal ones. The tests followed the manufacturer’s recommendations and aimed to determine the comparative performance of the two types of tires. The tests also made it possible to validate various fuel consumption data, comparing tires inflated at various pressure levels.
Within the scope of this test, the members of the PIT Group wanted to see the difference in fuel consumption between balanced and imbalanced tires. Also within this test, we therefore used sensors that were installed on the axles of the vehicles to see the difference in vibrations on each of them.
Based on the same approach, the PIT team conducted tests on trucks that were correctly aligned and then misaligned in order to obtain comparative data that will be used to better determine optimal driving conditions.
