How do your units work?
Our Electrolyzers separate oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrate from a proprietary electrolyte solution by using power generated by your alternator. A portion of this gas is commonly referred to as Browns gas. How much energy is needed from my alternator?
At initial startup in the service center each bank of 20 - Cells, it will require about 30 minutes to fully charge. During the first 15 minutes it will require about 50 -60 amps. After this it will draw about 25 -30 amps per 20 - Cell bank. Depending on the number of Electrolyzers you may require a higher amperage alternator. We have these available when necessary. Why does the unit go through a charging stage?
Our engineering design and proprietary electrolyte solution work together to make these individual cells hold an electrical charge. By doing this, we are able to create more gas with less energy than any technology we know about today. Why is this important?
Energy created by your alternator is finite. You may want to add other items that will require additional amperage. This design allows you more flexibility and increases your options. Also, there is a cost for driving an alternator. It creates drag on the engine, just as an air conditioner compressor does. What are other benefits of using less power?
If your alternator is continually overworked your fuel mileage will go down, because there is no such thing as free energy. Also, with too much of a load, your alternator may not achieve its intended life expectancy. How does the gas get into my engine?
The gas is drawn into your engine under a vacuum. This provides a constant supply of hydrogen and oxygen to enhance combustion. How much gas is being produced?
We have recorded a minimum of [300 Liters] of combustible gasses per hour per [20 - Cell Bank] Depending upon how many [20 - Cell Banks] you install simply multiply the volume. The level of production is the highest ever recorded for a vehicle mount On Demand system. For example our 2 Bank system [The Silverback] puts out a minimum of 600 Liters of combustible gasses per hour, our 4 Bank system [The Kong] puts out a minimum of 1,200 Liters. The factors involved in the increased output from the Electrolyte solution and computer controls All units we are aware of that are made by other companies put out a total of ~40 - 60 Liters per hour MAX! They commonly claim about ~15-30 amps at 14 volts equalling the ~40 - 60 Liters which translates into ~5 - 28 watts per liter. Our units consistantly produce at a rate under 1 watt per liter! Making these models the most efficient to date. How does "Browns Gas" provide fuel savings?
The primary benefit of our technology is to the combustion process inside your engine. This is accomplished through the addition of oxygen, hydrogen and Nitrate which enables a more thorough burn of the petroleum. In effect, we are replacing a small percentage of normal atmosphere with a gaseous fuel. A secondary benefit is derived by converting the buffer your alternator provides into additional fuel for the engine. Once your engine management system adjusts to the new environment, the injectors will be instructed to deliver less petroleum to the engine. Why are your electrolyzers so big?
In this case, size really does matter. Many units on the market consume 15 - 30 amps of energy from your alternator which may take it to its maximum limits of ~40 - 60 Liters per hour. These units are generally small, require more frequent maintenance, and commonly burn out over a few months of use. Often their recorded output is a combination of water vapor and steam created because of the excess heat created over such a small plate area plus being in a small container and being under the hood where it is the hottest. We commonly refer to these units as coffee makers as they can boil water within minutes. Our engineering design and proprietary electrolyte solution requires exactly this much space to work at peak efficiency. This also reduces your need to refill the unit so frequently. Additionally, we have created a very serious electrolyzer. This is not a novelty item! Why are your Electrolyzers manufactured using a transparent material?
This is for many reasons. Some are proprietary which we will not discuss. Others are obvious. For example it is extremely durable. Additionally, we want you to see each cell working and we want you to see how much and how fast the gases are being produced. This also provides a very easy way to see when it needs to be serviced. It is also a conversation piece because; well…it’s just cool! How often do I need to add the proprietary electrolyte solution?
This will occur about every ~10 hours of operation. When you see reservoir getting close to empty line it will require about 2 - 4 gallons of water and 1 quart per gallon of distilled water. You do not have to wait until it gets to that line. You may choose to refill when it gets about halfway to the line. Use this guide like your fuel tank. When it gets less than half it’s always good to refuel. What affects the electrolyte consumption?
Factors include driving speed, outside temperatures, length of travel, traffic and more. It should last ~500 - 700 miles based on traveling at 60 mph . You should plan to service the unit with each oil change,regardless of your driving habits. Does this affect the manufacturer's warranty of the vehicle?
No, hydrogen is the cleanest burning fuel of all time. In fact, over time, our unit will reduce carbon deposits. The result is a longer lasting more efficient engine and fewer oil changes as the soot from poor combustion is nearly eliminated. What modifications are needed to my engine?
Modifications are non-intrusive and easily reversible. The simple explanation is that a hose is attached to air intake prior to the air cleaner. The wiring is very basic for any mechanical person. How does this affect my engines operating temperature?
By including "Browns Gas" in your combustion chamber, your engine temperature will not increase. It will actually decrease slightly. How safe is your Electrolyzer?
While every precaution has been taken, keep in mind this unit is creating a combustible gas. It is not a play thing. Do not smoke, cause static charges, sparks, or similar near the unit. In short, use the same precautions that you would when fueling your vehicle. How safe is your Electrolyte?
In September 2006 NASA had a leak of Potassium Hydroxide aboard the space shuttle. This material is very caustic and caused a smoke like appearance within the shuttle. This gas, if inhaled will not be pleasant. Skin contact with the electrolyte will cause immediate tingling and will eventually will be slightly painful. NASA announced that this material posed no threat to anyone on the space craft. [the most inconvenient location I would want to be in] This material is very caustic. It will burn the skin after several minutes of exposure. If exposure occurs, the solution should be washed off with straight water for five minutes, and then washed with soap and water. We include material safety data sheets for you with every order. Again, we believe you should treat it with the respect of gasoline. Will using this improve the environment?
Yes. The use of "Browns Gas" will improve the overall efficiency of your internal combustion engine, thereby causing a cleaner exhaust and lower fuel consumption. I live in a cold climate. At what temperature will this freeze?
The temperature at which the electrolyte will freeze is – 36°C. If this occurs you may wish to turn on the vehicle and warm it up for a few minutes. The amperage will thaw the electrolyte before the engine is warm. You also have the option to turn the unit off until the vehicle is moving. What exactly is your 5 year prorated warranty?
To our knowledge, this is the longest warrantee in the industry. Our estimate is that this unit will last for approximately 10 years. The 5 year prorated warrantee is designed to be very similar to many car batteries. Each year, 20% of the retail value is depreciated with the balance being applied to the purchase of a new electrolyzer. We also have a 100% part replacement program that replaces the pro rated warrantee. We have two caveats:
1) Only our electrolyte solution can be used.
2) Only use distilled water as anything else will shut the unit down until you take it appart, drain out all fluid and clean the mineral deposits off the plates. This will also void any warrantee program we have as these simple instructions were not followed. Why do you require the use of your proprietary electrolyte?
Our solution is designed to work in a careful balance with the plates, wiring schematics, computer and alternator. Any foreign material taking this out of balance will alter its performance significantly and could cause damage to your alternator, electrical system and our electrolyzer. What happens if I run below the fill line on the unit?
If you permit the fluid level to get below the red line, the computer will shut the unit down until you correct the issue. What is the distribution chamber for?
The primary function is to provide air filtration so any dust or water vapor that could be drawn through the unit will be caught in the chamber and not drawn into the engine. This is then recycled back into the reservoir to be used again to conserve water. What do I fill the distribution chamber with, and to what level?
Nothing is actually needed. The unit will take care of this by itself and pump out excess solution when necessary.
