Edmonton, Alberta, July 11, 2008 – Titan Logix Corp., (TSX Venture: TLA), is
planning the launch of its Deice-Stik™ (patent pending) in the fall of 2008 for
commercial use in the aviation service industry. The Deice-Stik™ is the central
component of an advanced solution for accurately monitoring, controlling, and reporting
the application of deicing and anti-icing fluid from a deicing truck onto an aircraft.
The aviation service industry currently relies on mechanical equipment, typically not
very accurate and often very expensive to maintain. With an exorbitant rise in aviation
costs such as fueling and ground services (including the cost of propylene and ethylene
glycol, the main components of deicing and anti-icing fluid) there is a growing need for a
“Fluid level/volume is accurately measured using radar signal analysis. One button
control of automatic batch calculations and tank volume measurements makes the
Deice-Stik™ ideal for inventory management. The Deice-Stik™ is the central
component in Titan’s vision to provide a total asset management solution,” states Greg
McGillis, PEng, EE, Titan’s Vice President of Engineering and Business Development.
Field trials of Titan’s new guided wave radar technology began in 2008. In partnership
with a major U.S. air carrier, initial field trials using prototypes, in this specialty
application segment of the aviation services industry have confirmed the design. Major
players among deicer truck fabricators are enthusiastic about Titan’s developments.
About Titan Logix Corp.:
Titan Logix Corp. is an advanced technology industrial instrumentation and controls
company. We focus on designing, manufacturing, distributing and servicing
instrumentation and automation solutions. These are primarily for the oil and gas and
transportation industries. For many years, these industries have relied on manual
intervention. However, the need has arisen for automation, which has accelerated the
demand for our products.
Titan is the North American leader in guided wave radar (GWR) liquid level
measurement and control in mobile tankers. Guided wave radar uses the principle of
Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR). A pulse is ‘launched’ by a transmitter, down a probe
in a mobile tanker carrying liquid. The pulse reflects off the surface of the liquid and
returns back up the probe to the receiver electronics. The total ‘flight’ time of the pulse is
computed to a high level of accuracy thus calculating the liquid level/volume. Guided
wave radar technology is the basis of Titan’s TD80™ products, which have been in use
in mobile tankers in the oil and gas, chemical and aviation industries since 1999.
Titan’s vision is to be the global market share leader in advanced mobile tank level
measurement, control and asset management while growing its market interests in
burner management and level gauging.
