MagneGas® Launches Faster Cutting Fuel Made from Renewable Waste
Independent Tests Show MagneGas® 2 is almost 40% Faster Than Acetylene
TAMPA, Fla., July 16, 2014
TAMPA, Fla., July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --MagneGas Corporation ("MagneGas" or
the "Company") (NASDAQ: MNGA), a leading technology company that counts among
its inventions a patented process that converts liquid waste into a
hydrogen-based fuel, announced today that it has launched a second-generation
cutting fuel at the 2014 Ironworkers Instructor Training Program held in Ann

Independent tests were performed with MagneGas® 2 by EWI, a leading
engineering and technology company which services the heavy manufacturing,
defense, aerospace, automotive, oil & gas, and advanced energy industries.
Tests performed on track-based cutting systems showed that, in comparison to
acetylene, MagneGas® 2 had 38% faster cutting speeds on 2" carbon steel and
about a 34% reduction in oxygen consumption. MagneGas® 2 showed even better
results when compared to propane.
MagneGas® 2 is a rich mix of gases resulting in a lower flow rate and a flame
that behaves like legacy cutting fuels such as acetylene. This reduces or
eliminates the need for retraining of staff thereby lowering changeover costs.
Additionally, MagneGas® 2 can be used for brazing and welding making it a
complete replacement for flame applications of acetylene and propane.
"MagneGas just raised the bar again with a new and even better cutting fuel
that will cut costs, increase efficiency, and act as a safe gas replacement
when compared to acetylene and propane," stated Terry Vernille, Executive Vice
President of MagneGas. "Customers who have seen it are amazed with the new
MagneGas® 2 fuel. Let's hear what our customers and distributors have to say."
"The new MagneGas® has increased our cutting speed by 40%, provides a much
cleaner cut, far less smoke than propylene. Also it has reduced our oxygen
usage by 35%." Kurt Peterson, Elenbaas Steel Supply
"We tried the new version of MagneGas® in May. I noticed a much faster preheat
and cutting speed. I am looking forward to using this cutting fuel when it is
released." Dick Clark, Hoekstra Truck Equipment
"I have been demonstrating the new MagneGas® for a few months now. I have had
extremely positive feedback from everyone who has used the product. Cutting
speeds have been increased from 30% to as much as 50% on burning tables.
Oxygen usage has been reduced 30% to 70%. MagneGas® creates significantly less
smoke and provides a plasma quality cut with an oxy-fuel torch." Gary Jensen,
Outside Sales. GTW Supplies (MagneGas Distributor)
"We at MagneGas are proud that our R&D efforts are progressing in all business
lines and that we now can offer customers an even faster and better cutting
fuel sourced from non-hazardous renewable wastes," commented Ermanno Santilli,
CEO of MagneGas. "In addition, the fact that tests at EWI have confirmed that
MagneGas® 2 can be used to cut at higher travel speeds and lower oxygen
consumption levels compared to competitive products is in line with our
strategic objective of engaging with reference organizations in target
industries to certify the MagneGas value proposition."
