SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lithium Exploration Group (OTCBB: LEXG.OB) (OTCQB: LEXG.OB) announces an update on the initial testing of its Ultrasonic Generator in Pennsylvania. The initial testing went positively and without any mechanical failures or issues. On startup, the unit was operated in a closed loop circuit managing the speed of the generator, rate of water flow through the system, and pressure settings on the discharge head. All of the custom features of the proprietary technology operated without any issues throughout the ramp-up testing program. The system has been brought up to a speed that is 55% of its optimal performance and will continue to be accelerated to achieve the heat required to produce steam. The Company intends to continually update investors on milestones as they are achieved.
"The initial testing of the ultrasonic generator has been a huge success. Were it not for some minor delays due to control panel settings and a couple of pressure sensors that needed to be replaced, we would be at the required speed to produce the controlled cavitation. The next milestone for us is to bring the unit to full speed where it will achieve the required heat and pressure settings to produce steam. We have produced a video of the operating unit which should be ready for distribution in the next few days," commented CEO Alex Walsh.
