Cavitation Technologies, Inc. Granted Another U.S. Patent
Cavitation Technologies, Inc. announced today that the Company's U.S. Patent Application, entitled ‘High-Throughput Cavitation And Electrocoagulation Apparatus’ was allowed by the United States Patent and Trademark Office
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2014
Cavitation Technologies, Inc. ("CTi") (CVAT) (Berlin: Stuttgart: WTC) announced today that the Company's U.S. Patent Application, entitled ‘High-Throughput Cavitation And Electrocoagulation Apparatus’ was allowed by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USTPO) on November 15, 2013 and is currently awaiting patent issuance. An allowed application, or application in issue, is one which, upon examination is passed to issue as a patent, subject to payment of the issue fee. The allowed status continues until it is issued as a patent.
This patent relates to an apparatus and method of purification and treatment of potable water, ground water, industrial water, sewage water, etc., for which there are numerous applications in drinking water production, food, chemical, oil, energy, wood, pulp and paper industries, mining and metal-processing and similar industries.
The Cavitation-Electrocoagulation process influences the effective removal of ionic species, particularly metal ions, from wastewater. Removable contaminants include metals, petroleum products, colloidal particles, living species, organics, dyes, polymers, surface-active compounds and other matter, whose concentration can be decreased to allowable levels in one pass through the Cavitation-Electrocoagulation apparatus. The Cavitation-Electrocoagulation process results in cost savings by eliminating the need for polymers, while effectively achieving up to 99% removal of waste products.
“Our Cavitation-Electrochemical process presents the opportunity to maximize the beneficial re-use of resource materials while minimizing transportation and disposal costs, as well as their associated liabilities,” stated Roman Gordon, CTO of Cavitation Technologies, Inc.
This is the forth patent that has been added to Cti's intellectual property portfolio over the past few years. These newly-issued U.S. patents include the following:
- US patent 7,762,715 – Issued July 27, 2010 – Cavitation Generator
- US patent 8,042,989 – Issued October 25, 2011 – Multi-Stage Cavitation Device
- US patent 8,603,198 – Issued December 10, 2013 – Process for Producing Biodiesel Through Lower Molecular Weight Alcohol-Targeted Cavitation
- US patent allowed November 15, 2013 – High-Throughput Cavitation and Electrocoagulation Apparatus
“The issuance of these patents continues to validate the innovative nature of our platform technology and the proprietary methods we use to produce our products. CTi now has a total of 12 patents either issued or pending permit included in the Company’s intellectual property. Furthermore, we expect additional patent issuances in 2014 which will further strengthen our broad patent portfolio,” concluded Mr. Gordon.
Founded in 2007, the company designs and manufactures state-of-the-art, flow-through, robust devices and systems and develops processing technologies for use in edible oil refining, renewable fuel production, expeditious petroleum upgrading, algal oil extraction, alcoholic beverage enhancement and water treatment. As an add-on to existing neutralization systems, the company's patented Nano-Reactor(R) allows refiners to significantly reduce both processing costs and the environmental impact, while also increasing the yield.
