  • Arid Technologies - ARID's PERMEATOR System Earns CARB Certification
    PERMEATOR validates our design philosophy of using only robust reliable and quality components Moreover savvy petroleum marketers have already realized the PERMEATOR s dual benefit of reducing harmful environmental emissions while at the same time yielding direct financial benefits via gasoline fuel savings The certification test was conducted at a retail refueling site located in Grass Valley California The site manager Mr Descoe Chentnik commented PERMEATOR has been generating fuel savings of approximately 1 000 gallons per month The unit has operated maintenance free for over three years Steve Matus who was ARID s liaison with CARB personnel stated Although it was a long and arduous path for certification we are very thankful to have had the opportunity to work with such a professional staff Without the knowledge and expertise of George Lew Pat Bennett and Paul Marzilli it would have been much more difficult to navigate through the administrative process of certification We had confidence in our product and we knew through diligence and patience the certification would be granted About ARID Technologies ARID Technologies Inc is a recognized leader in membrane based gasoline vapor recovery technology Based in Wheaton IL ARID has over 196 of it s PERMEATOR systems installed worldwide including locations in Europe and Asia internationally and domestically in California Nevada Texas Florida Virginia Delaware Maryland Pennsylvania New Jersey and New Hampshire For more information please reference ARID s website at www ARIDtech com or call the company at 630 681 8500 About CARB California s Legislature established the Air Resources Board ARB in 1967 to attain and maintain healthy air quality and to conduct research into the causes of and solutions to air pollution Since its formation the ARB has worked with the public the business sector and local governments to protect the public s
