Fuel Efficiency Boosted by New HydraGen Technology

Fuel Efficiency Boosted by New HydraGen Technology

Canadian-based dynaCERT Inc. is making gains with its flagship product, the HydraGen, to boost fuel efficiency for the heavy truck industry.

HydraGen is an advance patent-pending electrolysis system that uses distilled water as a fuel additive combined with a potassium hydroxide electrolyte to produce clean gas for injection into a truck’s engine.

The technology could enhance vehicle performance and lead to greater fuel efficiency for the heavy tractor-trailer industry.

Essentially, it’s a hydrogen “gas-on-demand” system that feeds the produced gas into a special conditioning system that then separates out any moisture and sends dry gas to the output lines and the engine.

What should be most attractive to the industry is this: There’s no need to store dangerous quantities of compressed hydrogen gas onboard moving vehicles because the hydrogen gas is produced and delivered to the engine as needed.

Then we have the fuel efficiency part of the equation, which also looks promising. Not only does HydraGen provide gas on demand and eliminate storage issues, it does it all while monitoring for mileage and exhaust emissions to find what it calls the “exact recipe” for a specific truck engine. Once this ratio is determined, greater fuel efficiency can be achieved permanently.

Right now, the target is the heavy tractor-trailer industry, but we’re just getting started. This may be the technology that spurs similar developments targeting other industries, from marine and rail to transit and mining, and beyond.

    So let me see if I understand this. They are going to use the Diesel engine to run a generator which electrolyzes water into hydrogen gas which they then burn in the engine to IMPROVE efficiency??? Either I am missing something or they are just plain nuts!

    You are missing something. Please research stan meter water fuel cell, hho fuel cell or hydrogen fuel cell. This is old technology and it does work very well. It takes little energy to separate the hydrogen from the oxygen in the water if done correctly.

    I presume you mean Stan Meyer? Per Wikipedia "Meyer's claims about his "Water Fuel Cell" and the car that it powered were found to be fraudulent by an Ohio court in 1996."

    Actually the product has been proven to work by independent tests. CARB (California Air Resources Board) for one.

    In just a few short years this company has been in existence, they have gone through numerous changes to their "board", numerous CEOs, you can NEVER get an answer via telephone or a reply via email.

    They have had numerous name changes, and all this....
    spells "FAILING"!!!!!! I would not invest a penny, even though it would only take 8 of them to buy a share!!!!
