H2HyPod claims to have the best hydroxy technology in the world
By Sterling D. Allan

With seven years of development, over 400 installations, reams of data, international patents awarded, for protection in 147 countries, inventor James Culture says their H2HyPod is ready for international roll-out in a major way. Typical mileage improvement is 35% but in some cases is much higher.


Put simply, what is happening in a typical HHO or hydroxy system is that water is being electrolyzed on board from electricity from the battery, creating "Brown's gas", which includes hydrogen and oxygen, as well as possibly some new species not fully characterized or appreciated by academia yet. It is probably in the formation of this new species of gas (some call it ionized HHO or HHOi, because of its electrical characteristics) that the environmental energy shows up or is harvested. The Brown's gas interacts with the fuel to break the larger chain molecules (that often go unburnt in a typical system) into smaller molecules that are readily burned. In highly optimized systems, allegedly the vehicle can run on HHO alone.

At last week's Evolve Expo in Denver, the booth right next to ours was H2HyPod.

Early on, I overhead them telling someone that they were seeing between 25% and 50% improvement in mileage, and that they had a bunch of data to support their claims. They report that on average, 75% of their customers get at least a 35% improvement in their mileage. A few have gotten as high as a 225% gain.

They had a well-stationed booth, with 3-5 people with matching lab coats with their "H2HyPod" logo. It seems that every time I saw their booth there were several people standing there, interested in receiving their sales pitch and liking what they were hearing. And H2HyPod was very glad they had decided at the last minute to come, feeling like it had been well worth their while and expense, for the exposure and customer base they were growing.

I was able to do a brief video interview with James Culture, the inventor.

He said that what they were producing wasn't just "hydroxy" or "HHO" but was a "proprietary blend" that is able to trick the car's computer into accepting what it does to the mileage without counteracting it because it senses too much of one thing or another. Most HHO technologies have to modify the car's computer, which can void the warranty. At a minimum, in the other systems, they usually have to shut the system off when the vehicle is undergoing annual inspection to the vehicle so it will "pass" according to the computer algorithms, which are not written to accommodate or acknowledge the benefits of hydroxy addition to the fuel.

The unit will pay for itself from the savings on fuel consumption, not to mention improved performance of the engine.

The electrolyte in the water keeps it from freezing in cold conditions. Rather than freezing and expanding, the solution goes to a contracting gel, which is reconstituted in a few minutes via fluid dynamics.

They have systems for everything from motorcycles to 16 L engines.

With international patents awarded, for protection in 147 countries, they say on their site that the "H2HyPod has a 40% minimum advantage over all other previously patented technology advancements."

Pursuing this for seven years, with reams of data, many tests and improvements, including installation on over 400 customer vehicles, now H2HyPod is ready to roll this out in a major way. They are open to discussions about licensing for manufacturing and distribution worldwide, as well as discounts for bulk purchases and reselling.

Here's the interview I did with James.

H2Hypod 7 inch Tech Demo ultra high efficient hydrogen technology HHO

Also published as: WO2010130845 // EP2440687

The present invention relates to a method for producing a hydrogen-containing gas mixture and to a corresponding apparatus. In order to further develop a method in which charge surfaces to which electric current is applied are in contact with a water mixture, and a corresponding apparatus while considerably increasing efficiency, the charge surfaces to which electric current is applied are electrically insulated in relation to each other as completely as possible and are connected by way of the water mixture only in an intermediate region in direct vicinity to the charge surfaces.

In particular, from the market for retrofit kits for motor vehicles are known various approaches to methods and apparatus of the aforementioned type.

Corresponding devices are also available for self-assembly in a very large number for a variety of motor vehicles.

These devices can be roughly divided into two groups: The first group produced oxyhydrogen gas, or HHO gas, which is called from the Anglo-American area out as Brown 'basic gas.

A second group of gas generator devices generated at a gas outlet, more or less pure hydrogen gas and, separately therefrom to a further outlet of the oxygen gas.

Without limiting use of a field of the invention will be received only on passenger vehicles to display.

However, the invention generally relates to any design of internal combustion engines, ie combustion engines and turbomachines, such as jet engines on aircraft or stationary turbine of a cogeneration plant.

A further field of application of the present invention in combination with a fuel cell is that such

As obtained by converting electric energy into hydrogen or a hydrogen-containing gas mixture can be temporarily stored in the regenerative braking.

When braking at a red light then is a part of the alternatively converted into heat and lost braking energy in the form of additional fuel amount for a starting acceleration when the lights on green available.

During the described process, not to large amounts of gas to fall, so that their caching problem and also id

 lasting only a short time duration.For the preparation of larger amounts of oxyhydrogen include

Electrolysers known of the filter press type from CH 417 544A or WO 2008/138125 Al.

It has been found in trials by the applicant that the known devices and methods are not effective at least with respect to an injected current, respectively, and a generated gas amount.

It is therefore an object of the present invention to further develop a method of the aforementioned type and a corresponding device under considerably improved efficiency.

This object is solved by the features of the independent claims.

Accordingly, an inventive method for producing a hydrogen-containing gas mixture is distinguished in that with electricity acted charge areas as completely as possible against each other electrically operated insulated and only in an intermediate region immediately adjacent to the cargo spaces connected via a water mixture.

A corresponding device is characterized accordingly by the fact that the costs associated with an electrical power supply charge surfaces, in particular, as plates are connected in pairs at their front edges of a frame-shaped electrically insulating separator with each other to form a closed cell, the separator in an installed position an upper and a lower side surface each having at least one opening for fluid inlet and gas outlet and said openings aligned with openings in a comb-like structure of a cover, wherein the cover-free areas of the cargo space covering electrically insulating.

Thus according to the invention is first ensured that the effective for an electrolysis current flow between the adjacent and always oppositely charged surfaces charge extends to a vast majority through the fluid.
Thus, the intermediate area immediately adjacent to the cargo spaces across the water mixture is almost exclusively connected electrically active, so that takes place here, an electrolytic decomposition of water and thus a gas generation with improved efficiency to an even greater mass.

Advantageous developments of the invention are the subject matter of the respective dependent claims.

A separator having two substantially oppositely disposed openings is prepared in one embodiment by corresponding milled recesses or bores.

Preferably, however, a two or three-layer structure is selected to substantially cover the same thin frame members, two of which or a middle gaps or have perforations.

An integral separator with corresponding number and shape of openings in a mass-market and efficient production is thus created by gluing or laminating or other durable and also fluid-tight connection technology.

Thus, in a preferred embodiment of the invention, an efficiency increase of the effect of the gas mixture generated by the combination of a HHO cell with H2 and 02 ~ gas a means of separating generating second electrolysis cell is such that the HHO gas mixture, an additional H2 content is added .

This H2 content is preferably controlled by a separate power connection of the second cell.

For good results, the flow of current through this was H2 and O2 gas generating means of separating the electrolysis cell is about 10% of passing through the HHO cell current.

Further has instead use a pure direct current applying a square wave current having a fundamental frequency of about 30 to 80 Hz, preferably 48 Hz, has proved to increase efficiency with regard to the amount of the gas mixture produced.

In an alternative design, each of a separator diaphragm for maintaining a separation of the broadest generated in a space adjacent electrode H2 and O2 components.

This membrane is slightly twisted from each other in itself to generate spatially separate gas outlets or wound.

In a preferred manufacturing method, the membrane is fixed thereto, as it is wound between two C-shaped mirror symmetrical halves of the frame.

The structure here is similar to the holder of a slide image into two cracked slide frame halves.

Following further features and advantages of embodiments of the invention are explained in detail with reference to an embodiment with reference to figures of the drawing.

The same reference numerals are used for the same elements throughout the various figures of time always used.

Without limiting the invention, only a use of a cell according to the invention is hereinafter illustrated and described in a motor vehicle.

Figure 1 shows a basic structure of a first embodiment of an apparatus 1 according to the invention to implement a method in efficiency can be enhanced.

The schematic diagram indicates an assembly of an inventive device 1 comprising an electrolysis cell 2 for producing a hydrogen-containing gas mixture or in the form of HHO Oxyhydrogen mixture at in which a number of executed as stainless steel plates P charge surfaces are laterally interconnected pairs in the region at their front edges adjacent K on a frame-shaped electrically insulating separator S.

This structure corresponds largely to a closed cell, but in this case at least one opening O are provided for fluid inlet and gas outlet in a fully assembled on an upper and a lower side surface F of each separator S ever.

Thus, below a water mixture W occur from water with low addition of electrolyte between the adjacent charge surfaces P and also escape an emerging under the influence of electricity gas or gas mixture between the charge surfaces P of the separator S out again.

The openings O the side face F of each separator S are subsequently covered aligned in a comb-like structure formed of a slotted cover A with recesses V, which cover A free areas or Front edges of K P charge surfaces covered electrically insulating and so includes.

This means that by the inventive introduction of extended paths for potential equalization between see the cargo area forced all currents to flow through the water mixture.

This increases the yield of the generated gas or Gas mixture considerably.

Figure 2 shows the fully assembled cell of Figure 1 in a three-dimensional sketch with attached comb-like with U-or V-shaped recesses V slotted structures formed of the covers A. The assembly is and predominantly by gluing the gesture existing acrylic glass electrically insulating parts with corresponding known tested adhesives accomplished.

Thus, the end edges of adjacent panels and K are especially electrically connected only by a not shown further water mixture W, parasitic current paths without contact with the water mixture W are largely suppressed.

Figure 3 shows an embodiment of an electrolytic cell having an electrically adjustable extended composition to a hydrogen-containing forming gas mixture, the composition of the other side of one of the pure 2: 1 stoichiometry of the H20 molecule side gas mixture.

This combined device 1 comprises a first cell 2 according to Figures 1 and 2, here in a side view, along with a separate and individually controllable in terms of current flow electrode of a second cell pair e 3

It can be seen that in this way a via controllable by the second cell 3 is the current flow at an adjustable mass, only the H2-content of the second cell 3 and the HHO

Is supplied oxyhydrogen mixture of the first cell 2.

Thus, a deviation from a stoichiometric 2: 1 ratio of hydrogen gas atoms to oxygen atoms in the derived along the inset in Figure 3 arrow gas mixture G possible.

2, the first cell and the second cell 3 are connected to each other by the fluid W.

Electrical Ströungs-current flows are as far as possible due to the design of detour routes or Been reduced labyrinths.

An extension of the embodiment of Figure 3 to a heated storage tank is shown in Figure 4.

The heater can be operated electrically or by exhaust heat, but it is to be coupled to an engine cooling circuit not shown is preferred to make the water mixture to an operating temperature and keeping it there as well.

The arrow indicates an opening for the removal of the desired gas mixture G, a second opening escapes oxygen gas.

Figure 5 shows a three-dimensional sketch of an intermediate portion with a separator S, and is for the separation of hydrogen and oxygen, the membrane M positioned in an exploded view with the two immediately adjacent charge areas.

Figures 6a and 6b illustrate a construction and assembly of a preferred embodiment of a separator with membrane according to Figure 5 in the same three-dimensional sketch dar.

For this purpose there are two mirror-image, G and C-shaped plastic frame halves using C, which are integrally connected in the illustration of Figure 6b by laminating with the separator.

The membrane M is the formation of openings O twisted in the areas where the two halves of the frame C has its gap in what is indicated by the arrows in Figure 6a.

Figure 7 is a three-dimensional sketch of the separate discharge of hydrogen and oxygen from separators according to Figures 5 and 6b trained cover plate A double comb structure only less than half extending recesses V. Figure 8 shows a building on figure 7 three-dimensional sketch according to Figure 1 for schematic representation of an assembly of one embodiment of an inventive electrolytic cell for producing hydrogen and oxygen gas largely separate streams.

By phantom recesses or bores B, a respective gas component passes under significant extension of the provided in contact with the water mixture W electrically effective distance in a meandering shape is not shown in more detail the gas outlets for selectively supplying in a fresh air inlet in front of a turbo-compressor of a respective internal combustion engine.

While in the embodiment shown in the illustration of FIG from a common storage tank 4 of the water mixture w a first cell 2 is disposed on a second cell 3 4, according to Figures 9 to 11 are the first cell 2 adjacent to the second cell 3 in another exemplary embodiment, essentially the same level of co-located with the storage tank 4.

The isometric view of Figure 9 shows that layers produced in two different thicknesses of about 3.1 mm here and about 0.91 mm of acrylic glass.

The recognizable thicker layers of 3.1 mm carry channels for supplying water mixture W and the dissipation of the gas bubbles G of the electrodes P, E. The essential difference to the foregoing embodiments, here is a measure against excessive heating of the water mixture W normal operation taken by selective pumping of the water mixture W.

This is based on the realization that the formation of gas bubbles on the electrodes, in itself, has a cooling effect, but also by locally insulation changes the electrical properties.

This change may be due to the adhesion of gas bubbles be relatively permanently to a respective electrode and thus elsewhere lead to local congestion.

A sufficient movement of the water mixture W now causes a quasi flushing away the newly formed gas bubbles from the electrodes.
Without additional movable or even parts to be driven this flow is generated using the Venturi effect itself by the fact that the mixture of water and gas bubbles from the respective electrodes by meandering paths 5, 6, 7 to the storage tank 4 through rises and forms a pump.
These paths 5, 6, 7 are separated from each other in different layers of the arrangement shown, see Figure 10

The arrangement of Figure 9 has three trained as pump meandering channels 5, 6, 7, wherein the negatively charged and thus hydrogen-gas-emitting electrodes produces the channels in a common area with two structures 8, 9 lead to foam-reduction, is taken from which the gas mixture G via an opening 10.

The positively charged, and thus oxygen gas generating electrode E of the second cell 3 is connected along the dash-dotted arrow line via the channel 7 to a discrete region thereof to its own structure 11, for foam-reduction and thus clearly separated.

Here, too, an opening 12 is provided for replenishing water.

The relatively thinner layers frame the respective electrodes and possibly electrical leads.

In the electrical leads is again to be observed with reference to Figure 10, seen thatin a mounting position - always contact from below the corresponding electrode plates so that electrolysis takes place only at the electrode-sheet and not on leads.

In addition, the feed cables run only out in a U-curve over a MAX mark, only to come snapping off from the bonded acrylic case out only down.
Thus, the leakage of water mixture along the electrical leads can be prevented even in continuous operation.

This therefore results in a very compact and space-efficient structure in stratified design, which is in terms of performance in terms of gas production of both types of cells 2, 3, easily scalable or varied by exchange.

It shows the display of Figure 11 is an exploded view of the arrangement of Figure 9 that there is a total of the first cell comprises two electrodes of five encircled part numbers 4, 8 and 12, only two of which are supplied from outside with power.

The embedded in a segment with the component name 7 electrodes can be easily added with upstream or downstream segments with the component names 9, 10, 11.

In a significant, not shown in the drawings here training membranes are placed at a distance from the contacting with the water mixture W surfaces of the plates P.

The use here of the membrane type, as illustrated in the figures of the figures 5 to 6b.

These are now fitted in the corresponding recesses of the electrodes plates P thicker acrylic plates.

This means that to achieve pure hydrogen gas generation compared with the arrangement shown in Figure 11 is better efficiency and higher purities at adjustment.

To improve the corrosion resistance, it has been shown that feeding a small amount of diesel or castor oil is useful and effective.

The oil covered bodies with material defects, inclusions or small holes, thus preventing a certain operating time their progressive enlargement.
