CUI Global Announces First Order for its Mercury Trace Element Detector Units in North America

Dec 15, 2015, 05:30 ET from CUI Global, Inc.

TUALATIN, Ore., Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CUI Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: CUI) announced today that its wholly-owned North American energy subsidiary, Orbital Gas Systems N.A., has successfully received orders for delivery of its mercury detection units to a large liquid natural gas ("LNG") project in the North Eastern United States.  The order, valued at ~$1,000,000 (USD), uses Orbital's proprietary VE Technology® sampling system to provide a fast and uniquely accurate method of detecting trace elements (like mercury) in the LNG liquification process. 

The North American order for the mercury detection units and other, VE Technology related systems follows successful deployment of the systems to a large LNG project in Queensland, Australia.  Due to the unique design of the VE probe, there is no vibration within the pipeline and the gas sample can be quickly and accurately furnished to the trace element (i.e., mercury, H₂O) detector in a matter of seconds; thus, allowing the operator to recognize trace element contamination more effectively than with other available technology.

CUI Global's President & CEO, William Clough commented, "Successful delivery of these trace element detectors to North America is yet another step forward in recognition of the capabilities provided by our VE Technology.  That technology provides extremely quick, pure gas samples allowing for very accurate detection of trace elements like mercury or moisture in the gas.  In addition, the patented helical fins prevent vibration of the sample probe thereby increasing pipeline and probe life expectancy."

"We continue to work closely with both US and European integrated natural gas transmission customers on securing initial purchase orders for our natural gas product lines, including the Italian pipeline transmission company, where we still anticipate that initial purchase orders will be awarded to selected companies soon," Clough concluded.
