SmallCap Sentinel: Capitalizing on a Smaller Market Niche
IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 30, 2006 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- "On a strategic basis, big companies often are invested in protecting their market share and expanding from a big base. This leaves small market niches to be developed by companies that can understand and help grow 'under the radar' market niches.

Internal Hydro International, Inc. Announces Hydro Unit Test Completion Will Mean Italian Manufacturing and University Validation
TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 30, 2006 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Internal Hydro International, Inc., (OTCBB:IHDR) (www.internalhydro.com) announced today the final tests of the Energy Commander V low impact hydro unit concluded on Tuesday, November 28th. The unit, which utilizes pistons instead of larger intake turbine based hydro units, was tested by LA Engineering of Theodore, Alabama, for flow pressures at the intake and outlet, at varying levels of water pressure and mechanical braking applied to the unit. These were the last tests to be concluded before the unit is shipped for the production phase to Italy with the Company's partner Cm2. The Company will submit the test results for validation of the technology by a partnered university for later release. The unit itself will be shipped within the next fourteen days to Cm2 for their use in the production phase of the next ten units. With the completion of the tests, IHDR will be able to complete and satisfy sales and placement enquiries, with a product sheet for units utilizing the innovative slice concept, which is an expandable set of 12 cylinder slices depending upon the flow available. A four (4) slice unit was designed to supply 30 kilowatts of electricity, however, where the flow pressures, or head, are greater, based upon the testing verification, less slices will be required to supply the same amount of energy. Previous testing showed that the unit's power potential was above calculated parameters as designed, and is projected to be optimized even further in production by Cm2.
