Puradyn Receives First U.S. Army Contract

Oil Filtration System Heading to Iraq and Afghanistan to Help Support Our Soldiers

BOYNTON BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - July 31, 2008) - Puradyn Filter Technologies Incorporated (OTCBB: PFTI) announced today it has received a contract from the U.S. Army to supply 70 puraDYN® oil filtration systems. The contract is to outfit the Joint Explosive Ordnance Disposal Rapid Response Vehicle (JERRV), which is part of the family of vehicles commonly known as MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected).

The MRAP vehicles have received outstanding service reports over the past few years in the war on terror. In fact, due to outstanding performance, the MRAP is considered an "urgent need," receiving major support in Congress and is considered the next generation of armored fighting vehicles.

Kevin G. Kroger, President and Chief Operating Officer, Puradyn, said, "This first order, and further anticipated orders, is the result of a combination of hard work and strong team effort between the U.S. Army and Puradyn. We began testing our system with the U.S. Army on this project in late 2005 and based on the results in field combat situations, the system was proven worthy and combat-ready. We are confident this will continue to open doors for us with other military vehicles."

Kroger continued, "We are proud of the performance our system has shown under very demanding conditions. Its performance will help the MRAP team meet the Army Material Command's efforts to reduce oil usage and consumption as well as help our soldiers by keeping the vehicles in continuous service."

Kroger concluded, "The safe extension of the oil's life and therefore the vehicle's service interval, translates into a significant reduction in the military's sustainment costs. By reducing the amount of oil required for equipment, the Army is also able to reduce the number of tankers needed to transport the oil to the equipment. The puraDYN system provides far-reaching, indirect benefits in longer engine life and lower maintenance costs."
