How HHO Fuel Engines Works
In natural gas fields of the lighter hydrocarbons usually occur in gaseous form due to the high pressures involved. They tend to liquefy on the surface (at ambient pressure) and are formed separately as natural gas liquids as liquid NGLs, either in surface separators or in large oil processing plants. Hydrocarbon phase substances generally possess a molecular weight of fewer than 300 lbs per molecule. NGLs are also produced from petroleum via gasification and constitute about 60% of crude oil. During heavy hydrocarbon production, liquids may also be left behind in the reservoir as thin-film deposits which are later collected and transported to oil processing plants for refinement. As these liquids are insoluble in water, it is not possible to obtain condensation to produce naturally occurring NGL.
Most of the hydrocarbon compounds
natural gases are polar solvents because they have a molecular weight that enables them to be dissolved in a solution. Most natural gases have an excess of one proton in their molecules compared to another, and all of them are made up of several units of hydrogen and carbon. The commonest natural gases are hydrogen and methane, together with several variants such as ethane, propane, and pentanes. The condensation of these to produce HHO was first used as a means of replacing water in the combustion chamber to produce the desired lubricating effect, hence the name ‘energy.
One of the major uses of HHO
is to substitute water for liquid lubrication in high-energy rockets, where its use also offers several environmental benefits. Because the production of HHO is cost-effective compared to using water, it is used in place of water in rocket engines and fuel mixtures. A steady, low-pressure source of HHO is needed for the combustion of liquid hydroxide in rockets; this is why liquid butane is not suitable, since their combustion is too violent. The alternative is to use butane, which is liquid propane or natural gas. The only problem with HHO is that it readily yields to the effects of gravity, so balloons and other low-altitude launch vehicles are typically required for its use.
Apart from being used as a lubricant
HHO can also be used as a cheap and efficient medium of exchange for crude oil and petroleum derivatives. Due to the nature of hydrocarbons, when there is an increase in the level of pressure, the hydrocarbon compounds are forced to expand into bigger molecules. This process is called thermogenesis, and the resulting product is methane. HHO makes it easier for substances like methane to be absorbed into the crude oil by creating a thin layer of it on the surface of the oil droplets. When the pressure decreases, the same thing happens with the oil droplets, until they eventually condense into solid fuel droplets.
Although HHO has been around for quite some time already
it is only recently that its use as a fuel to fuel our cars became apparent. Before that, it was mostly utilized in the refinement and petrochemical industries. Now that crude oil prices have reached a historic high, the need for better methods of fueling our cars has grown tremendously.
HHO is said to be more effective compared to gas liquids
such as gasoline, diesel, methanol, ethane, and pentanes. It can replace up to 40% of the hydrocarbon energy that is currently wasted in conventional engines, making it a highly recommended and cost-effective solution for future transportation needs. Although the cost of HHO and other HHO fuels remains relatively high, recent advances in technology have already made possible the manufacturing of HHO through a process called electrolysis. In principle, the procedure involves pouring the HHO onto an electrodialysis membrane, where it combines with the fatty acids present in the hydrocarbon.
