Energetix subsidiary Energetix Pnu Power has received a UK patent for an important method relating to the core technology within its compressed air uninterruptible power supply products.
The patent – titled ‘Lubrication of Positive Displacement Expanders’ – describes the method by which efficiency of the conversion of compressed air into electrical power can be optimised with minimal lubrication of mechanical components. Pnu Power produces back-up power solutions, using compressed air, for utility switching, telecommunications, data centres and other mission critical industrial operations.
Energetix says the grant of this patent provides additional protection to the company’s core product platform and builds on the company’s intellectual property portfolio relating to its Pnu Power technology.
The company has a core patent granted in 20 countries which protects its compressed air driven UPS system as well as two further patents providing additional protection.
