RECOVERY ENGINEERING INTRODUCES "ITEK-5" WATER PURIFICATION PRODUCT

 MINNEAPOLIS, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Recovery Engineering, Inc. (NASDAQ: REIN) today announced the introduction of Itek-5, a new iodinated resin for use in microbiological water purification.
 The new resin, introduced at the Water Quality Association Annual Conference in San Antonio, Tex., is the result of a new manufacturing process developed by Recovery Engineering that distributes iodine more evenly across the resin beads, making it more consistently effective for demanding microbiological water purification applications. The company has applied for U.S. and international patents to protect the new process.
 Itek-5, a pentaiodide (I5), is the company's "second-generation" iodinated resin. Itek-5 is more potent than Itek-3, the company's current tri-iodide (I3) resin, making it especially appropriate for purifying water in developing countries, and in the emergency preparedness and industrial markets. It will initially be marketed on an OEM basis to producers of water treatment systems. Recovery Engineering previously has produced resins only for use in its own water purification products. The company's Tritek system for microbiological water purification combines microfiltration with Itek-3 to eliminate microrganisms while limiting the iodine taste imparted to the drinking water.
 Brian Sullivan, president and CEO of Recovery Engineering, said, "Itek-5 further positions Recovery Engineering as a technological leader, and gives us the opportunity to become a major OEM supplier of state-of-the-art iodinated resins, as well as to develop more advanced water purification systems of our own."
 Recovery Engineering, based in Minneapolis, designs, develops, manufactures and markets proprietary small-scale microbiological water purification and desalination systems for marine and recreational applications.
