RadMax Prototype Gas Expander Electricity Generation Integration Update
REGI U.S., Inc. ("REGI" or "RGUS" or "the Company")
SPOKANE, Wash., October 9, 2017 (Newswire.com) - The Board of Directors, Regi U.S., Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, RadMax Technologies, Inc., are pleased to announce significant progress towards the integration of electricity-producing capabilities to RadMax technology devices.
A comprehensive analytical model has recently been completed that determines the component design parameters and predicted performance baseline for electricity generation incorporation into a RadMax device for a desired output. The RadMax gas expander prototype currently under development and testing was designed at its conception to incorporate electricity generation. Model determined electricity generation components are now being added into the gas expander’s test platform.
Based on a conservative overall net 65 percent device efficiency, it is estimated that the RadMax prototype gas expander will be capable of extracting 10 – 20 percent of the available pressure-volume energy and converting to electricity. We believe 70 – 80 percent device efficiency is achievable. This same energy is inaccessible in typical throttling valve applications and is lost. The RadMax gas expander allows for significant potential energy recovery in throttling applications.
Targeted applications for the electricity-producing RadMax gas expander are the large commercial markets for air conditioning, refrigeration, natural gas distribution and other applications where throttling valves are commonly used, such as the Petrochemical Industrial sector.
Electricity generation integration is also a major objective for RadMax internal and external combustion engines for portable, stationary, backup and emergency power generation.
It is anticipated that design integrations and testing of the RadMax gas expander prototype will continue through the first quarter of 2018.
We continue to evolve our new website radmaxtech.com, and encourage all investors to follow our progress.

ABOUT REGI U.S., INC.
RadMax Technologies, Inc., the wholly owned subsidiary of REGI U.S., Inc., is developing for commercialization multiple improved axial vane type rotary devices using our Patented RadMax™ Rotary Technology. This Technology allows for revolutionary designs of lightweight and high-efficiency engines, compressors pumps and other devices. One current prototype, 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 several capabilities allowing it to operate on fuels including gasoline, natural gas, hydrogen, propane and diesel. For more information, please visit radmaxtech.com
