Bridgton, ME - Jan 20, 2010 - Howell Laboratories is supporting the relief effort in Haiti with products produced by its Howell Laboratories and Shively Labs Divisions. The Howell Laboratories Division of HLI manufactures shipboard fluid and environmental systems for the US Navy. On Jan. 12, 2010, Howell technician Matt Smith was on sea trials with the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson when that ship was diverted to Haiti to serve as the backbone of US relief efforts. Smith was onboard ship to perform a final checkout of new mixed oxidant electrolytic disinfectant generators (MEDGs) manufactured by Howell and recently installed as an upgrade to the Vinson's potable water systems. The MEDGs produce a mixture of disinfectants from salt that are more effective than chlorine and bromine-only systems. The USS Carl Vinson's capability to manufacture over 400,000 gallons of drinking water a day is being fully utilized in the Haitian relief effort, and Smith remained with the ship through the first week of deployment.

Through a Canadian partner, Shively has manufactured and donated a custom FM antenna to assist the United Nations in reestablishing radio broadcasting in Haiti.
