FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brownie's Marine Group, Inc. (OTCBB:BWMG), a leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of highly specialized dive and safety products, today announced that significant progress has been made on the Molecular Impact Energy (MIE) technology generation test platform.
The first complete boiler-free engine-generator combination utilizing a 4 impact chamber design and an ultra high pressure water injection system has been completed and preliminary testing is being initiated. Preliminary results are very promising.
The initial tests confirm the inventor's original assumptions regarding the results of directing ultra high pressure and ultra high velocity water into a heated impact chamber.
The results achieved confirm the initial observations regarding water/steam explosion physics. Summary observation conclusion is as follows: When a high temperature pressurized water sample (above 212 degrees F) is forcibly impacted at a high velocity into a proprietarily designed pre-heated impact chamber a resultant micro steam explosion is observed.
This micro explosion release imparts substantial energy. This energy is sufficient to measurably elevate the temperature of the impact chamber based on accepted steam table temperature/pressure relationships.
The inventor theorizes that the explanation for the statistical mechanical mechanism for this results from the disassociation of electro statically bound water clusters. The collective energy resulting from this sudden and near instantaneous disassociation explains the pressure and temperature changes observed in the impact chamber apparatus test assemblies.
To carry these observations further the prototype team has constructed an external steam system capable of driving a conventional steam engine.
The steam generation system utilizes "state of the art" piezo-electric high pressure injection technology coupled with computer controlled injection timing and common rail pressure control similar to that employed in high performance diesel engines.
The Quad Chamber steam technology, feeding a 20 HP 2 cylinder steam engine, is anticipated to produce sufficient steam to drive a 14 – 30 KW generator on a continuous basis.
The applications for this technology are far reaching and extend well beyond the marine industry into local power generation. Brownie's exclusive rights, involvement and interest in this novel technology are specific to developing a super-efficient power generation system for yachts, ships and small island communities.
The important aspect of MIE technology is that it effectively eliminates the conventional boiler as a key element in steam production. A key driver of MIE technology is the partial replacement of thermal heating with kinetic heating.
BWMG has an exclusive license for this technology in the marine and remote power generation industry."

Except for statements of historical fact, the matters discussed in this press release are forward-looking. "Forward-looking statements" describe future expectations, plans, results, or strategies and are generally preceded by words such as "future," "plan" or "planned," "expects," or "projected." These forward-looking statements reflect numerous assumptions and involve a variety of risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the company's control that may cause actual results to differ materially from stated expectations. These forward looking statements include potential commercialization of the MIE technology for marine applications, the viability of the MIE technology, the potential realization of new revenue streams from the MIE and other patent and license rights, and our success in obtaining venture partners to help fund the testing of the MIE technology. These risk factors include, among others, limited operating history, our ability to obtain funding for the MIE project, and the efficacy of the MIE technology in marine applications, difficulty in identifying and marketing products, intense competition, substantially increasing the enterprise value of Brownie's, successfully commercializing other patents, generating new lucrative streams of revenue form the MIE, and additional risks factors as discussed in reports filed by the company with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which are available at http://www.sec.gov.
