LIBERTY TECHNOLOGIES, INC. SIGNS JOINT COOPERATION AGREEMENT WITH ELECTRICITE DE FRANCE TO COMMERCIALIZE STARS(R) ACOUSTIC BLADE MONITOR

 CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Liberty Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: LIBT), a leader in developing, manufacturing, selling and servicing diagnostic valve testing systems within the nuclear market, has signed a joint cooperation agreement with Electricite de France (EDF) to commercialize its STARS(R) Acoustic Blade Monitor (ABM).
 Liberty and EDF have worked closely together on the beta testing and evaluation of ABM at an EDF nuclear power plant in France. This new agreement, which formalizes the relationship and provides for ongoing development and EDF fundraising, royalties and purchase discounts, is the next step toward the full commercialization of the STARS ABM System.
 The ABM is an on-line monitor that assesses the condition of blades in low pressure steam turbines. The system identifies blades with propagating cracks; locates small geometry changes; and detects blade flutter, potentially damaging aerodynamic events and rotor torsional events.
 Currently, microphones that provide the monitoring signals are installed in the turbine casing. The system will be expanded in the future to monitor high-pressure stages by developing microphones with increased temperature and pressure capability.
 "Liberty and EDF have had a three-year relationship in working together toward the development, testing and evaluation of the Acoustic Blade Monitor," said R. Nim Evatt, president and chief executive officer. "Liberty is well-known for VOTES(R), the leading system for testing motor operated valves in the U.S. nuclear power industry. Commercializing our system for diagnosing steam turbines is the next step toward providing a range of products and services to improve plant reliability."
 Liberty, founded in 1984, develops equipment based on proprietary technologies to detect incipient failures, degraded conditions and potential non-performance of valves, motors and turbines. VOTES(R), Liberty's Valve Operation Test & Evaluation System, is the leading system for testing motor operated valves in the U.S. nuclear power industry.
