HHO Combustion – What Does It Actually Do Then ? And How?
So what actually happens with HHO combustion ?
HHO combustion. HHO enters the combustion chamber via our Hydroflow HHO generator and when combustion takes place breaking the HHo molecule leaving H+ ions which then react with carbon deposits and they are then converted into Hydrocarbon gases which are then expelled from the combustion chamber on the exhaust stroke along with the un-used hydrogen ions and into the cat and dpf filter…as the combustion chamber is cleaned more and more hydrogen ions are free to be passed down the exhaust and this is how the cat,dpf and sensors which are in turn cleaned.
Results of NASA’ s experiments with hydrogen in internal combustion engines
Direct from 1977 article by *NASA:
“Lean-mixture-ratio combustion in internal-combustion engines has the potential of producing low emissions and higher thermal efficiency for several reasons.
First, excess oxygen in the charge further oxidises unburned hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide.
Second, excess oxygen lowers the peak combustion temperatures, which inhibits the formation of oxides of nitrogen.
Third, the lower combustion temperatures increase the mixture specific heat ratio by decreasing the net dissociation losses.
Fourth, as the specific heat ratio increases, the cycle thermal efficiency also increases, which gives the potential for better fuel economy.”
HHO Combustion in Petrol & Diesel Engines
In a standard engine, the combustion cycle is very fast: 0.007 seconds. Most of the fuel molecules are too large to burn completely in this extremely limited time. The situation is made worse by the fact that the spark plug only ignites a small percentage of the fuel. The fire generated must cascade from one fuel molecule to the next as it propagates through the combustion chamber of the engine. This wastes precious time.
HHO burns and travels through the combustion chamber 10X faster than a gasoline flame and the combustion dramatically speeds up the entire process. HHO fills the space between fuel molecules and has the effect of making them closer together. The combustion flame travels faster and the fuel is exposed to flame sooner and for a longer period of time. The result is a cleaner, more complete burn.
