TUCSON, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bourque Industries (OTC:BORK) today announced that its Kryronized aluminum busbar outperformed the industry-standard C11000 copper busbar in initial testing at General Electric in Tucson, Ariz. Busbars are an essential component for the world's energy grid, and are critical in many industrial applications.
During testing, the Kryron busbar exhibited superior performance, dissipating more heat at higher currents than the standard C11000 copper busbars. The tests indicate that the Kryron busbar has better conductivity and less resistance than standard copper.
In addition to projected increased performance, the Kryron busbars are not at risk of theft, as Kryron is not a traded commodity. Copper busbars have been frequent targets of thieves looking to profit from the sale of very valuable stolen copper.
“For many years, we've been searching for innovations to effectively upgrade and modernize the world's power grid,” said John M. Bourque, Founder and CEO of Bourque Industries and inventor of Kryron. “Our June 4 testing at GE indicated that Kryron may be a major contributor to the solution for our aging and inadequate energy delivery system.”
