Our water in biodiesel formulations can be categorized under two labels, AquaCharged (Micro-sized Emulsion) and AquaCharged+ (Nano-sized Emulsion). To learn more about how water can aid in lower emissions, cleaner carbon footprint, and an improvement in engine performance, please continue reading below.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND IT
AquaCharged Biodiesel Multi-Stage Combustion
AquaCharged Biodiesel transforms the soot shell formation with the assistance of water vapor/steam.
Water vapor/steam converts the soot/char into carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen gas.
Through the "Micro-Explosion Phenomenon" an increase in fuel burn is now possible during the combustion cycle.
The formation of the SOOT shell during the combustion cycle of a diesel engine regulates the diesel fuel in the shell to fully combust, thus reducing the fuel efficiency.
SOOT Shell Conversion by Water Vapor/Steam
AquaCharged Biodiesel reduces soot shell formation hence increasing fuel efficiency.
Water aids in an increased heating rate by a factor of about 1.5x, causing the piston to descend much quicker in naturally aspirated diesel engine (non-turbo equipped). For turbocharged diesel engine the heating rate is increased even more by a factor of 2x.
Soot is unburned fuel from the combustion cycle and a sign of inefficient combustion. Another byproduct of unburned fuel during the combustion cycle is an increase in hydrocarbons (HC), a greenhouse gas.
