Photon's Unique Technology to Measure Greenhouse Gas Volumes Attracts Russian Market Interest



    BURNABY, B.C, Feb. 6 /CNW/ - Photon Control Inc. ("Photon") (TSX-V: PHO)
announces the attendance of Andrey Gorevoy, General Director of InnoTech, the
Russian distributor of Photon's innovative flow meters, at an event held in
Vancouver, Canada today to discuss the market opportunity in Russia.
    Photon is preparing for the start of international sales of its unique
Focus(R) Probe Optical Flow Meter, the leading optical device on the market
capable of measuring greenhouse gas (GHG) volumes, based on the recent
successful completion of field trials in Russia and the assessment of the
market by Andrey Gorevoy, General Director of InnoTech, Russian distributor of
the Photon flow meters.
    Provincial government representatives, Ralph Sultan MLA and Harry Bloy
MLA, were also present to discuss the significance of Photon's leading optical
flow metering technology to address the Province of British Columbia's policy
to reduce GHG emissions.
    Comments Photon's COO, Ivan Melnyk, "Russia is the number one producer of
oil and gas in the world and has implemented a country-wide regulation
requiring measurement of flares and associated gases. We are very pleased to
have our Russian partner here to discuss our schedule for delivery of Photon's
products to the Russian market. An application for certification by the
Russian Federation has been made."
    "This event today is part of an intense week focused on Photon's flow
metering technology. Our US partner, Shelby Morley, is also here in
preparation for supply of our meters to monitor flares in refineries in
California due to new, strict regulations being enforced in that state."
    The Focus(R) Probe uses patented optical sensing technology that was
designed specifically for gas flare applications. It uses laser beams to
measure the gas flow by sensing the velocity of microscopic particulates
naturally occurring in the gas, providing a highly accurate, low-maintenance
and cost-effective means of accurately measuring flow rates with levels of
effectiveness unmatched by other technologies.
