SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Pressure Systems International (P.S.I.) has announced an investment in a new aerodynamic system from Plasma Stream Technologies.
P.S.I. has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Plasma. The new system uses plasma actuator technology to reduce aerodynamic drag on semi-trucks and trailers, according to the company. It manipulates airflow around the vehicle without the additional weight and maintenance issues associated with bolt-on devices, the companies claim.
“P.S.I. believes the Plasma Stream technology can offer a real advantage for fleets, just like automatic tire inflation” explained Tim Musgrave, president and CEO of P.S.I. “Reducing fuel consumption benefits the environment as well as our customers’ bottom line, so our investment in Plasma Stream is in sync with our commitment to the market of providing product that delivers a highly desirable ROI. We are excited about the potential provided by our two companies working together to deliver this innovative product to the commercial vehicle market.”
Corey Park, director at Plasma Stream adds, “We expect P.S.I.’s reputation, knowledge of the market, and well-established distribution channels will spur market adoption and give us the capability to bring Plasma Stream’s technology to trucking fleets worldwide.”
