A sample of what? I asked for the analytical procedures and QA program.

THAT is what I want to see and that is what you offered to present.

No no no. Dockhead, you're both right and wrong. The problem is when someone says "Algae-X" without saying what algae-x product they are talking about. The company's pride and joy were a half dozen magnetic magic boxes that they apparently no longer sell or support and apparently wish the world would forget about.
Your posts are very comical, where do you get your info?? they (the magnetic devices) are alive and well, manufacturing like never before and selling like hot-cakes.
SunSail just purchased one for every vessel in their fleet... I think that you need to check your sources.

I am still waiting to hear of someone with actual experience. If they have device installed and it did nothing etc... The guy who's wife purchased it for him, ridiculous... knocking the product with it sitting on his book-shelf... install it and try it.. then comment.

Re: I Tried to do a Search on Algae-X, but...

There is ample reason to be cynical. It appears the response to my requests for some real data on which they base their claims is that my email address won't work. It most certainly does as well as a second email address I provided him and still nothing!

Such dubious behavior lends some evidence to the dubious claims they make. One might justifiably doubt their credibility as well but I don't think that was ever uncertain.

Re: I Tried to do a Search on Algae-X, but...

Oh, Illusion, you're just stuck in the era of tin cans and string, when all phones were black, had a dial in front and often said "Western Electric" in back.

I just had an email today from the world's most prominent name in microprocessors, telling me that they could not contact me by any means. Sent from a "do not respond" email account, to my primary email account, where they say they couldn't contact me.

From my perspective, if Algae-X can't reach you, that puts that on a dead-even par with the world's most prominent manufacturer of microprocessors. HONEST.

And these folks swear that they've been correcting my contact records for nearly two years now, so it could take the Algoids an equal length of time with you.

You gotta love this 21st-century business. What's the short version? "Spock, if you wanted logic, you've come to the wrong planet." Or the less PC version:
7of9 blasts a stowaway alien entity that doesn't respond to her instructions to halt.
Picard: "I thought I told you to try diplomacy first?!"
7of9: "I tried. It didn't work."

Or more likely their ability to provide objective data on which they base their efficacy tests is equivalent to their email 'skills'

Fuel Right: Tech Corner: Results

Or like real tests, documented and run at Brookhaven, going all the way back to 1996. By a whole lot of companies.

Found by a quick search on BNL and fuel additives.

I am surprised to see this here. I made 4 attempts to send information on the procedure and some attached articles. They were all kicked back to me. Set up a gmail account and I will try again. I am open to send the information to anyone who requests it.

The data and testing I was promised is for the Algae-X magnetic gadget, not biocides. Your link contains biocides data unrelated to this discussion. Note data presented at a Broohaven conference is not Brookhaven data.

Regardless, if there was any credible data, why hide it?

So where is the info you were supposed to send to either of two email addresses I gave you?

Not once do I mention testing on Algae X magnetic systems. We are testing their biocide. I made it clear in an earlier post that I had nothing to support magnetic devices. Our expertise relates to biological contamination in #2 distillates.

'I made 4 attempts. Not sure what else to do. "
First you send a short email return receipt, so you know the addresses are correct, the spam filters are not blocking, and the route works.

Then you find out the size of the attachments you plan to send, and compare that to the size allowed by the ISPs. Yours and his. Some are very low and folks often send ridiculously huge image files, at which point the email is black-holed.

Mial works? Sizes are under the limits? Then he'll get them.

Or you set up a public dropbox, or a web page, and post the information there, so others can grab it.

Of course that same type of logical examination of a process is what showed the "milspec" claims to be smoke and mirrors.

I sent a couple of emails to the two addresses that he offered without attachments and it was still kicked back.
