Filipino Invention Stops Global Warming

A Filipino invention may yet be the answer to stop global warming.

Roberto V. Celis, 74, said it took him 14 years to develop his invention called "Hydrogasifier" using water as supplemental fuel for all kinds of internal combustion engines that use gasoline, diesel, natural gas, hybrid or bio-fuel, eliminating deadly pollutants from spreading into the atmosphere.

"It utilizes the hot exhaust gases from the engine to dissociate water into hydrogen and oxygen gases that are immediately introduced into the combustion chamber to completely burn the fuel," Celis said in an exclusive interview with the Philippines News Agency in his shop in Marikina City.

Celis said that when he perfected the development of the "Hydrogasifier" as an anti-pollution device, it turned out also as an engine enhancer, increasing power of the vehicle and at the same time cutting down fuel consumption.

"It was just marvelous and I was surprised to this unexpected bonus to my invention which would benefit the Filipinos and the whole world," he said.

"Fuel saved from gas or diesel is from 30 to 50 percent and that is a lot of savings," he added.

Using the "Hydrogasifier" would save the Philippines some US$ 2-billion of fuel annually, he said.

Celis said that carbon emission is near zero during a series of laboratory tests by the Land Transportation Office (LTO) "that makes this device a potential carbon eliminator to prevent global warming that's threatening man's health."

To prove his invention works perfectly, Celis installed the device to test its effectiveness in a Ceres Liner Bus, a Jeep Star Bus, and jeepney operated by Ryan Transport Services, all based in Bacolod City last March and came up with the following results: the 174 horsepower (Hp) of the Ceres Bus increased to 199 Hp, while emission from 9.6K down to 0.21K, cutting down emission by 94 percent;

The Jeep Star Bus from 137Hp to 144.83 Hp and from 9.9K to 2.29K or emission reduction by 76 percent; and

The Ryan jeepney from 83 Hp to 87 Hp and from 9.9K to 0.82K or a reduction by 90 percent of its emission.

A Pajero installed with "Hydrogasifier" saved fuel by 40 percent in city driving, and by as much as 87 percent in highway driving, Celis said.

He said a 1994 Toyoto Corolla car using the device saved fuel by 50 percent in highway driving and up to 30 percent in city driving.

"It is my humble contribution to the world in containing global warming which is threatening man's existence," Celis said.

"I do believe that my invention can contribute greatly in conserving energy and reduce global warming in response to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol on Climate Change, wherein the World Bank will pay us US$ 20 per ton on carbon emission reduction," he said.

The 74-year old Filipino inventor said that the "Hydrogasifier" does not only save motor vehicle owners with lots of money due to less fuel consumption but also complies the Clean Air Act of 2003.

Celis also said that the success of his invention will "generate employment for our people and earn foreign exchange from exporting the device."

Job generation is one of the main concerns of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo before she ends her term in 2010.

Celis appealed to the Philippine government to extend financial assistance in the filing of international patent "for this important invention to guarantee the Philippines of exclusivity in manufacturing this Filipino technology."

He said his invention can also be installed in factories to control pollution.

"The ultimate solution to stop global warming is now here in the Philippines," Celis said.

He said that vehicles using the device are like trees, which helps lower carbon emission in the environment, as these release only 6.5 percent to 7.6 percent oxygen from the tail pipe to make cities clean and healthful. (PNA)



Technical Field

The present invention relates to a gas saving method and device and more particularly to a method for converting water into fuel enhancer for combustion engines by dissociating water into its constituent hydrogen and oxygen gases by efficiently utilizing the hot exhaust gas of the engine for heating the dissociation device. The hydrogen and oxygen gases produced are immediately introduced into the combustion chamber through the intake manifold of the engine to burn and cause efficient combustion of the fuel that results in fuel savings, reduce emission, add power and speed to the engine and release oxygen from the tail pipe for a healthy and friendly environment. The method and device is safe to use because storage of hydrogen is not necessary.

Background of the Invention

Although hydrogen is a clean and a powerful source of energy, it is a chemically active element and not available in the free state in nature in elemental gaseous form, it must be produced and stored for utilization in engines, but hazardous to the monitoring public when carried on board a vehicle in case of accident.

Hydrogen can be obtained from compounds by breaking chemical bonds but requires a substantial amount of energy to accomplish. From hydrocarbons, a mixture of methane and steam is heated to a high temperature in the presence of catalysts in producing large quantities of hydrogen. From water, hydrogen is produced by electrolysis but it is a slow process and insufficient to power a vehicle when carried on board.

Methods of producing hydrogen are specifically exemplified in US Patent  # 3,699,718, # 3,786,138, # 3,816,609, # 3,859,373, # 4,069,303, and # 4,202,744. These methods include, steam-light hydrocarbon reforming, partial oxidation of hydrocarbons and other carbonaceous matter and coal gasification process. All the above processes require storage of hydrogen to be carried on board to be used as fuel for motor vehicles and would create great danger to the motoring public.

Liquid water would therefore offer a convenient and compact source of hydrogen and oxygen fuel for a combustion engine because it is safe to use.

Summary of the Invention

The invention provides for a gas saving device and method for dissociating water into its constituents hydrogen and oxygen gases by utilizing the heat energy of the hot exhaust gases of an engine between temperatures of 710 F and 950 F in an efficient method. The method consists of replacing the exhaust pipe directly below the exhaust manifold of the engine with an expanded exhaust pipe that encases the water dissociation device. This dissociation device consists of a long spirally formed superheater tubing, preferably stainless steel, with a vast area that maximizes contact between the superheater tubing and the rapidly passing water. The spirally formed tubing causes the high speed passing water to turbulently move in a circular manner, expand and exert great pressure on the inner wall of the superheater tubing to further absorb more heat between 710 F and 950 F (Below 710 F condensation occurs). The high pressure superheated steam, discharges into a large stainless steel cylindrical dissociation chamber, rapidly expands and dissociates into its constituent hydrogen and oxygen gases. The hydrogen and oxygen gases so produced are immediately drawn into the combustion chamber through the intake manifold of the engine to burn and causes efficient combustion of the fuel that results in fuel savings, add power and  speed to the engine, reduces emissions, cools the engine, reduces engine wear, and releases oxygen to make the environment more healthful.

When the engine stops, the spring-loaded valve automatically closes and prevents flooding.

Detailed Description

With reference to Figure 2 of the isometric partially cut-away view of the water dissociation device, is seen to include an expanded exhaust pipe 16 adapted to be connected to the exhaust manifold of an engine, a spiral superheater tubing 7, encases inside said expanded exhaust pipe, said exhaust pipe having an exhaust inlet 20, and an internal gas outlet 17 at the opposing end, to allow the hot exhaust gas from the engine to pass through and heat the spiral superheater tubing between 710 F and 950 F; said spiral superheater tubing having water supply inlet 6 at one end thereof, a dissociation chamber 9 is provided inside said expanded exhaust pipe and connected to the opposing end of said spiral superheater tubing at 8, said dissociation chamber having an outlet that discharges the dissociated hydrogen and oxygen gases into the intake manifold through outlet 10. Outlet pipe 11 is connected and in fluid communication with conduit 13, at outlet coupling 12, through intake manifold adapter 15, that is connected to conduit 13, by coupling 14.

With reference to Figure 1 of the cross-sectional view of the water dissociation device flow control method of the gas saving device, is seen to include a water tank, a transparent dextrose-like tube 2 that is anchored and in fluid communication with tank 1. Stainless spring-loaded valve 3 which is encases in tube 3a is in fluid communication with tube 2 and secured thereto. Valve 3 is coupled with gate valve 4 at 4a and in fluid communication therewith. Water supply tube 5 is coupled a t 6 with the said spiral superheater tubing 7.

When the engine is started, the suction force from the engine causes the water from the supply tank to be drawn toward the combustion chamber of the engine. This suction force causes the stainless spring-loaded valve 3 to be actuated to allow the water to flow through said spring-loaded valve. The rate of flow of water is regulated by gate valve 4. The water passes through the spiral superheater tubing at high speed in a circular and turbulent manner making the water absorb heater, expand and dissociate into its constituent hydrogen and oxygen gases in the dissociation chamber.

The dissociated hydrogen and oxygen gases are immediately sucked and burned with the fuel in the combustion chamber. Since hydrogen burns 7 times faster than gasoline and diesel fuels, and releases high amounts of heat energy upon combustion, it therefore causes the fuel to burn completely to prevent carbon emission, save fuel, add mileage, power and speed to the engine.
