Hydrogen Boost Design Updates
the last couple of months we have not published a newsletter because we
have been busy improving our systems.
In the recent updates to our systems we have added to every system
the previously popular 7-function multi-meter,
as well as a tool that most people do not have but
that is essential in doing a proper installation, the wire stripper/crimper
tool. We have also added a vacuum
switch for gasoline vehicle systems and a pressure switch for
turbo-charged diesel vehicles.
These switches apply the knowledge gained from our dynamometer
tests done at Purdue
Read the articles leading to this change in our May
2007, August 2007, September 2007, and October 2007 newsletters. Briefly the switches shut off the
hydrogen generator during idle and low throttle settings when the
benefits of the hydrogen gas are not greater than the energy used to produce
added a Scanguage to our diesel small vehicle
system because now most trucks on the road have an OBD-II port to plug
the Scangauge into.
biggest changes have been to our Diesel Tractor Trailer systems and some
of those changes have not been built yet but I though you might want to
know about them before you purchase.
The following changes have been made:
Model 40 hydrogen generator with rubber top and bottom is no longer
available on our order page. Only
the welded Model 40SS with sight gauge is available. This unit carries a two year warranty instead
of the one year warranty of the older unit.
filler hole in the top of the welded units will be replaced with a smooth
fitting appropriate for a snap handle drain plug used on boats. However these will be made of stainless
steel rather than the brass ones common on boats.
also added the rugged guillotine clamps pictured above to secure the
hydrogen generator and the water trap to the frame of the truck.
water trap is being replaced with a welded
stainless steel combination water trap and mist separator.
will be adding a heater to the unit than circulates engine coolant from
the cabin heater hose circuit. We
have previously supplied a crude heating coil around the hydrogen
generators sold to colder climates.
This new heater is built in and is not crude.
have asked for a reservoir to automatically keep the hydrogen generator
full, but we refused to accomplish this task like our competitor
did. They installed a float
switch, reservoir, and pump. And
to keep all this from freezing they added a “house” around everything
that they have to heat 24 hours a day throughout the winter with
electricity. Our design eliminates
much of that nonsense and provides a reservoir than can fit under the
hood like the hydrogen generator and need no electrical power to
automatically keep the hydrogen generator full. I will either have a build in heater
like our hydrogen generator or it will use a readily available freeze
proof solution that is already used in most vehicles.
continue to take suggestions from our research and development team,
which includes on the road truckers.
