CAN YOU TELL ME IN SIMPLE TERMS HOW THIS ON DEMAND HYDROGEN WORKS?
Hydrogen Generators like the type we sell here, are based on the patented discoveries of a William Rhodes in the earlry 60's and then advanced 12 years later by a Professor Yull Brown in the 70's (who spent almost $30 million over his lifetime trying to get Brown's Gas into the mainstream). Both men developed a special type of "Single Cell" electrolyzer that extracted hydrogen and oxygen out of water, but unlike the common practice of separating the two gases, they realized you could actually allow them to combine into one, energetic, very combustible gas. Since Yull Brown was such a strident advocate for the gas, he was later honored by having it named after him. It is still referred to as Brown's Gas in certain circles, but has also been referred to as hydrogen-oxygen, hydroxy, oxyhydro, oxyhydrogen, on demand hydrogen, and in the last 5 years, popularized as "HHO Gas". Most of the general public have still never heard of it and are surprised upon its discovery.
Though the discoveries of those two men was focused more on the commercial application such as water welders and misc applications of the gas; we have chosen to focus on the transportation and combustion engine sector, specifically cars, trucks, RV's, boats; anything mobile (though we are also building and testing industrial size generators for much larger engines).
When this technology first started to catch fire back in 2006 or so, a number of unscrupulous people started claiming you could run your car on water only (mostly to sell poorly written books, and untested designs), which is NOT true. HHO is a "Combustion Catalyst", NOT a fuel replacement technology (at least at this stage). Hydrogen burns at 40,000 feet per second (gasoline at 4000 fps), and in this form actually burns way too fast to be used by itself and actually works better if it is "slowed down" by the gasoline, diesel, CNG, LPG, or biodiesel fuel. Together they make the perfect combination!
Our HHO kits are comprised of a robust, on demand hydrogen generator, an external water/electrolyte reservoir, and a bubbler/filter mechanism. The kit does not need a tank to compress or save the gases in, but uses them as they are made ("on demand"). It operates on the available extra energy of the car alternator, and generally uses less than 500 watts of energy to operate (less than one horespower).
The kits electrolyze the hydrogen and oxygen out of the water using available extra energy from the alternator and battery, creating a unique and energetic form of gas containing H, O, H2, O2, and even H2O. This incredible gas enters the engine with the incoming air and fuel of the car and during the combustion cycle, acts as a “combustion catalyst” making the fuel burn faster and cleaner. When it burns inside the engine, it turns back into water, which then turns into a superheated steam, scrubbing and cleaning the inside of the engine of carbon deposits and sludge, all while at the same time contributing to the extra mileage gained by increasing combustion efficiencies.
The reason we have special Platinum coated Catalytic Converters on our cars, is to chemically react with the unburned hydrocarbons coming out of the exhaust of the engine (The modern engine is only 18-20% efficient even today); when they clog up- they are expensive to replace. If you reduce clogging hydrocarbons- you keep the whole system running cleaner and longer.
When the renewable hydrogen fuel is injected into the engine along with 33% pure oxygen (even in small amounts), it becomes a catalyst that extracts more energy out of the gasoline, diesel, or other fuel. Now, to clarify, this is not like the water injection of the 70's, that used gallons of water. In fact, because you are shearing the water at the molecular level, you can produce almost 1800 liters of hho gas for every 1 liter of water!
By injecting hydrogen-oxygen into the combustion process, you burn a much larger percentage of the hydrocarbon chains, and extract as much energy out of fuel as possible. So instead of wasting the energy due to incomplete combustion, you extract it where it matters most- inside the engine. That is why mileage goes up, and emissions drop drastically. You can see evidence of both increased mileage (compiled from our customer emails), and almost non existent emissions on an actual test car, by going here TESTIMONIALS
