Frequently Asked Questions
It saves a minimum of 10-20 % on vehicle applications depending on driving habits and Road conditions . 10-30 % on stationary Gen sets .
Yes. In order for hydrogen to become volatile 2 of the following 3 conditions must exist followed by a spark:
1. Hydrogen must amount to more than 4% by volume of air (IHS product accounts for less than 1% by volume of air when mixed with engine airflow)
2. Hydrogen must be stored (the product produces gases on demand only while the engine is running. When the vehicle is turned off all remaining gas flows into the engine and dissipate into atmosphere)
3. Hydrogen must be under significant pressure (the product operates at less than 1 PSI. If pressure builds in the system to 5 PSI a pressure relief valve will open and all built up gases will dissipate into atmosphere.
Other hydrogen-based technologies , most notably the Fuel Cell System , use hydrogen as a main fuel cell to create electricity. This technology is still many years away from becoming an affordable solution .
No because the increase in the combustion efficiency of the thermodynamic cycle actually results in LOWER ENGINE TEMPERATURE . More work is produced and less heat .
No, the electrolyser cell is made up of a solution that includes potassium hydroxide (KOH). The KOH never freezes so the cell will not freeze. The reservoir tank will freeze, however the Product is equipped to heat the reservoir at engine start up so that within minutes the ice in the reservoir tank will begin to melt. Freezing of the reservoir tank is acceptable because the cell has enough water in it to operate on its own for 24 -30 hours before calling to the reservoir for refilling
Fuels such as bio-diesel, ethanol, natural gas or propane are all possible alternatives but each have there own particular problems. The hydrogen technology we use can improve the combustion in these fuels as well .
Hydrogen , in the right concentration, can be explosive gas . However SAE studies report that hydrogen must represent at least 4% by volume to be explosive. The hydrogen technology we use produces less than 1% hydrogen as a percentage of the air/fuel mixture, and therefore could never be explosive. Also the technology purges Hydrogen when powered off , so it is never stored . A very important SAFETY FEATURE.
Because of its STABILITY, the technology can now be modified to fit any application. It can operate under extreme conditions in cold and warm climates. It can withstand high shock and vibration conditions as well .
