Hydrogen Boost Systems
the years we have had many requests for a Hydrogen Boost system that was
suitable for motorcycles. During
that time I have said that I would prefer to design a unit specifically
for motorcycles but never did get around to it. Upon request from a customer in Malaysia
I finally followed though with the plan.
The biggest problem was what to do for a fuel heater if the
motorcycle was air cooled. And
what was to be done about leaning the air/fuel ratio?
customer in Malaysia
wants to market to the many air cooled small displacement motorcycles
with carburetors. Air/fuel ratio
will have to be adjusted by adjusting the mixture screws or changing the
fuel jets in the carburetor and for a fuel heater I devised a really neat
idea. Since I wanted the hydrogen
generator to be smaller in diameter than our Model 20 unit I had to
reduce the outer diameter and hence reduce the number of electrodes inside. This reduces the maximum efficiency and
thereby allows for the unit to heat up enough to heat the fuel. Instead of wrapping the outside with a
coil of fuel line, I decided on a design that had the fuel line routed
inside the hydrogen generator and back out again. This fuel line had to be flexible and
of a non-conductive material because it would likely touch more than one
electrode inside the unit. I found
a suitable material and produced the following unit.

of the unit are as follows:
8 volts at 5 amps produces one liter of gas in 3
8.8 volts at 10 amps produces one liter of gas in 2
9.7 volts at 12 amps produces 1 liter of gas in 1 ½
11 volts at 15 amps produces one liter of gas in 1 ¼
12 volts at 18 amps produces one liter of gas in 1
we will call this unit our Model 10 hydrogen Generator.
