SAN MARCOS, Calif., Oct. 27, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Omnitek Engineering Corporation (OTCQB:OMTK) today announced the introduction of a high-pressure compressed natural gas filter specifically designed for small, low- powered engines, with particular applications for vehicles operating within Asia and the Indian subcontinent.
The filter has been certified by an international independent agency based on tests and standards sanctioned by the United Nationals Economic Commission for Europe, specifically UN-ECE-110R.
"The introduction of this smaller natural gas filter model 075, with applications that include three-wheel vehicle models, marks a great addition to our large filter model 175 -- which was designed for light and heavy duty vehicles powered by CNG, such as buses and trucks," said Werner Funk, president and chief executive officer of Omnitek Engineering Corporation.
He noted that numerous internationally recognized original equipment manufacturers utilizing the company's larger filter requested a smaller component based on expectations for growing demand for alternative fuel passenger vehicles and the performance standards of the larger unit.
Funk noted that the company is exploring manufacturing the new smaller filter in India in 2011.
