TAMPA, Fla., April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MagneGas Corporation, www.magnegas.com ("MagneGas" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MNGA), a technology company that counts among its inventions a patented process that converts liquid waste into a hydrogen-based fuel, announced today that Sidney Lee Welding Inc. of Georgia has completed MagneGas Distributor training and has received their first customer order. Sidney Lee recently purchased $10,000 of MagneGas® fuel, which amounted to approximately an entire semi-truck of cylinders. After receiving their order, MagneGas personnel conducted extensive training with the Sidney Lee team who have now started actively selling MagneGas® fuel in the Georgia market.
A large local machine shop was the first customer to place an order after using MagneGas® for cutting a four inch plate on their computerized cutting table. They found improved cutting speeds of 13.5 inches per minute with MagneGas® versus 9 inches per minute with propylene, a 50% improvement. The improved cutting speeds coupled with almost no pre-heating time and visibly cleaner cut resulted in MagneGas getting the order.
"We are very pleased to be working with Sidney Lee Welding in Georgia. Their first customer, which is a very large local machine shop, is exactly the kind of organization which we are targeting for the MagneGas® metal cutting gas," stated Terry Vernille, Executive Vice-President of Industrial Gas Sales for MagneGas.
