Water Fuel LLC - Fuel Enhancement Consulting Services
The concept of fuel enhancement has been around for decades.NASA
What design methods are
capable of increasing the efficiency of internal
and external combustion engines?SAE
There are many design parameters that contribute
to overall efficiency,SAE
with hydrogen addition facilitating a variety of engine modifications. The US DOT says hydrogen addition increases gas mileage using lean burn conditions,DOT
while also mitigating pollution emissions without the use of a catalytic converter.SAE
NASA says hydrogen addition increases flame velocity, which provides more useful pressure prior to the critical crank angle; thus allowing for
greater compression ratios and advanced timing.NASA
To assist in the dissemination of these concepts this website has been extensively
expanded, providing an excellent source of original and third party research. [More
Consulting services are a natural extension of experience, and
By having a proficient third party consultant, the planning and implementation of a project
can be reinforced. Companies wishing to integrate hydrogen
fuel enhancement technology can utilize my service
to develop new products for the marketplace. Overall there are many considerations in developing a credible and reliable fuel enhancement system,
making my consulting service a great asset in any project.
Considering the many augmentation concepts there are several products that can be created,
with each improving vehicle efficiency by a different means.
Recommended augmentation and design concepts:
(*) Fuel vaporization combined with direct injection
Fuel vaporzation involves a prolonged time period in which gasoline is allowed to form vapors prior to injection into the engine.
Fuel injectors are designed for liquids, therefore a gaseous metering system is required as a replacement.
The combination of fuel vaporization, and direct injection technology constitutes the next generation of automotive
Fuel vapor car
Hydrogen addition effects gasoline in two ways. One, by increase burn velocity more time is provided for the combustion process. This
allows for more of the fuel to react completely, which will provide a fraction of a percent increase in combustion efficiency. Two, by allowing
gasoline to remain flammable at ultra lean air/fuel ratios, periods of decreased load and acceleration requirements
can be optimized for superior economy.
The efficiency of hydrogen production is of the utmost importance. Reformer technology can produce hydrogen at upwards
of 80% efficiency, and electrolyzer technology at a maximum of 16%. Because of this reformer technology is the efficient choice,
On-board electrolyzers and parasitic energy consumption
Water injection adsorbs heat expanding the water into steam. The expansion converts heat energy into useful work increasing
engine efficiency. Water injection can be used to compensate for increased combustion temperature associated with lean air/fuel ratios.
A cooldown period is required before shutting off the vehicle to purge remaining water from the cylinders, and a warmup
period is required before engaging the driven power strokes.
When the vehicle is decelerating fuel flow can be stopped. With the engine rotating normal engine operation can
begin by re-establishing normal fuel flow. For engine longevity optimization a new port should be placed on each cylindar to open during
deceleration to stop the engine from compressing.
Three things should occur: 1, the spark should be disable.
2, compression should stop. And 3, fuel flow should shutdown.
The weight of your vehicle is directly linear to the amount of energy needed to travel at a particular velocity.
Because of this reducing the weight of your vehicle will have a dramatic effect on fuel economy.
Drag is experience at high velocities especially during highway driving. Drag accounts for a dramatic reduction in
economy, and substantial designing goes into the aerodynamics of vehicles. Modifying your vehicle specifically to reduce
drag, especially at highway speeds, can increase fuel economy more than 10%.
6 stroke engine technology involves 2 extra strokes that are designed to increase engine efficiency.
The extra strokes involve the injection of only water, which will turn to steam because of engine temperature, resulting
in an additional power stroke. The method will successfully create an extra power stroke solely by the typically wasted
heat produced by the engine. By consuming typically wasted heat, and creating an additional power stroke the
overall efficiency of the engine is increased.
6 stroke technology requires an engine warmup and cooldown period. The warmup period is required
to have heat energy available, and the cooldown period is required to purge residual water from the cylinders.
CVT transmissions allow the engine to remain at a particular RPM, while providing acceleration by constantly varying
gear ratios. Since the efficiency of the engine varies by RPM the most efficient region can be targeted
for longer periods of operation. By forcing the engine to operate for longer periods of time, in an efficient RPM region,
fuel economy is effected.
Research proposal and viable electrolyzer technology:
(*) BTU analysis
By measuring the BTU content of Brown's Gas a precise efficiency of production can be determined. An efficiency
of production analysis can be conducted with varying common ducted electrolyzer designs.
The amount of heat energy released is independent of the mode of combustion, and the temperature of the flame varies.
What is the chemical mechanism?
RGA refers to a particularly designed Chromatography system that is especially precise. This degree of precision is required
to analyze hydrogen compounds due to the small size of the molecular structures. A thorough chromatographic analysis of Brown's Gas
will provide information about proposed chemical structures. This research will also help clarify interesting characteristics of the flame.
Combustion efficiency measurements can be taken when Brown's Gas is mixed with different hydrocarbon fuels. What are the variables?
(-) Air/Fuel limitation dependending on engine design
(-) Fuel and air system specification for integrity and longevity maximization
(-) Development of reliably deployable ECU modifications or replacements
Two  Brown's Gas Generators are available
for onsite consulting services
.They are of the
(*) operate at 3 watt-hours/liter and produce up to 1600 liters/hour
(*) are series cell design with amperage limiting technology
(*) have a water level low auto-shutoff feature, and auto pressure stabilize
(*) are based on common ducted electrolyzer technology dating to 1966
Realizing Carbon Efficiency using the Power of Hydrogen
Increasing the efficiency of a vehicle requires changing how it operates. Engines
have an efficiency curve to describe operating efficiency at different conditions, and hydrogen addition
shifts the curve into different regions of the graph; the engine must be modified to operate in regions of increased efficiency to increase fuel economy.
All carbon fuels (gasoline, diesel, propane, natural gas, heating oil, crude oil, and coal) can be effected
in a similar fashion. The combination of hydrogen's effect on combustion, and the modifcation requirements for the consuming
system results in better fuel logistics and a positive effect on the companies profitability.
The research, prototyping, and manufacturing of efficiency improving technologies can be greatly benifited by third party
consulting services. Contact Noah Seidman today with your questions.
