Hydrogen On-Demand Runs A 11 Horse Power Briggs & Stratton 100%


This week HydroFuture announced that the HydroZilla version 8 (off-the-shelf solution) can run a small 11 horse power Briggs and Stratton gasoline engine 100% on diatomic hydrogen and oxygen, being liberated in real time.  It is not unusual for motors to run on compressed liquid hydrogen kept in storage tanks and then sent to the engine as a vapor, as we see with cars like BMW; this has been done for awhile now.  However, no company has run a motor on just nascent gas generated in a Hydrogen On-Demand (HOD) environment, while operating from a 12 volt system like a large format vehicle does – until now.  This test ran a Briggs and Stratton engine with just 13 liters per minute of diatomic hydrogen and oxygen being liberated from water in REAL TIME, then delivered to this engine/generator carburetor where we tapped a compression fitting at the bottom of the carburetor Goose Neck.

The generator in turn produces electricity to run tools.  In this test a power drill was run while the engine was operating on hydrogen/oxygen fuel only, effectively demonstrating how the 12 volt direct current electricity (VDC) was converted into hydrogen fuel from water, and then converted back into electrical energy for other usage. This is another market which HydroFuture will add to the growing sellable markets.  Welding companies can do away with their hydrogen bottle and having to spend a lot of cash reserve up front to fill the bottles.  They will no longer have to take the time wasted on this task.  A system can be hung on the wall of the shop, or be mobile, and they produce HOD to run their welders. This isn’t new either, companies have been marketing HOD solutions for welding for awhile now, just not with 12 VDC like we do.

David Packer, CEO and founder of HydroFuture LLC, has said for the past two years that HOD would one day produce enough gas, in an efficient enough way, that an engine would be capable of running from it’s delivery.  This video footage proves that technology is advancing fast, and at some point large format motors will be able to cut down their diesel usage significantly with a viable supply of On-Demand hydrogen and oxygen to support the reductions.

    What a HUGE accomplishment for HydroFuture!!! This is only the beginning of great things to come- revolutionizing the Hydrogen on Demand Industry, and ultimately changing the way people power their motors. Congratulations!

    • David says:

      Thank you Christopher. i do see the day we liberate enough gas in an efficient way that we can supplement a large portion of an engines power supply while cutting down the amount diesel being used. It’s very exciting to be a part of this future.

    Extremely impressive! Amazing to witness a real time hands on application of HOD technology. HydroFuture is Now!

    • David says:

      Thank you for the encouragement Alex. It took us awhile to get here. It’s exciting to think that we are separating water in Real Time and the gas is running that motor. i haven’t seen another company actually do it. I’ve seen a lot of companies make boosters and claims but not actually demonstrate the ability in real time like this test does.

    Me parece fantástico como se produce le oxigeno y el hidrogeno?
    it seams to me fantastic, how you produce de oxigen and the hidrogen supply?

    What happens in combustion chamber is still only a guess. In an earlier explanation I suggested that the extremely rapid flame speed of the added hydrogen oxygen interspersed through the main fuel air fuel mix, gives the whole mix a much faster flame rate. Dr. Brant Peppley, Hydrogen Systems Group, Royal Military College, Kinston, has convinced me that insufficient hydrogen is produced to have much effect by just burning it. He feels that the faster burn is most likely due to the presence of nascent (atomic) hydrogen and nascent oxygen, which initiate a chain reaction. I now completely agree. Electrolysis produces “nascent” hydrogen, and oxygen, which may or may not reach the engine as nascent. It is more probable that high temperature in the combustion chamber breaks down the oxygen and hydrogen molecules into free radicals (i.e. nascent). The chain reaction initiated by those free radicals will cause a simultaneous ignition of all the primary fuel. As it all ignites at once, no flame front can exist and without it there is no pressure wave to create knock. The results of test at Corrections Canada’s, Bowen Alberta Institution and other independent test reinforce the belief that combustion is significantly accelerated. They found with the HGS on, unburned hydrocarbons, CO and NO, in the exhaust were either eliminated or drastically reduced and at the same R.P.M. the engine produced more torque from less fuel.

      This sounds mostly correct. We have observed the reaction in real time on vehicles and have learned that when injecting the gas into the combustion chamber via the intake manifold there is a catalytic reaction altering the combustion efficiency thus allowing the vehicle to run more smoothly with more efficiency. When examining the data sets we can graph the MPG prior to use of HOD and see there are more exaggerated highs and lows in the MPG changes from week to week then when the vehicle uses HOD enhancement. Currently, one of our primary data collection vehicles is experiencing 22-28% fuel savings from this combustion enhancement technology. It is not due to supplying high amounts of gas but rather low amounts in a consistent way. Our HOD system is capable of supplying 21 liters per minute of combined hydrogen and oxygen through decomposition, yet injection through the intake manifold is not an appropriate method of delivering that amount of gas. Additionally, this amount is still not enough to consider that the fuel is being used like the diesel fuel, but rather as a catalytic effect still. Though using this much gas in this method of delivery can result in lower economy through presumed early detonation from hot spots, and increase ‘blow-by’ around the rings. Our newer methods of gas delivery will assist the ECM in controlling the energy as if it were diesel, thus cutting back both fuels to an appropriate level for proper reactions and increasing the amount of fuel economy and combustion efficiency.
