EcoTop - Fuel Economy and Power Increase

EcoTop - a device that improves the following characteristics:

  • Fuel savings of 15-20%
  • Increases overclocking dynamics by 20-30%
  • CO decrease by 8-14 times
  • Compliance with Euro-2 standards
  • EcoTop fits all carburetor cars

Developed, patented and tested a simple and effective method of saving fuel for internal combustion engines of automobiles (by 10-15%.) At the same time, it allows reducing the toxicity of vehicle exhaust gases by dozens of times with simple devices of vortex mixing.

Motor transport is the main culprit of toxic atmospheric pollution in cities, since it is road transportation of goods and passengers in cities that are the most widespread and in demand. However, the modern gasoline engine of cars is not only extremely imperfect from the standpoint of ecology, but also primitive in terms of energy performance. It possesses efficiency. only about 20%, and since the fuel is not cheap now, and is constantly getting more expensive, this fuel inefficiency of the engines becomes a real ruin not only for car owners, but for all of us. After all, the cost of expensive transportation of goods and passengers is our everyday expenses ..

Despite the significant number of patents, developments in the field of fuel economy and reducing exhaust emissions, the modern car is still far from energy and environmental perfection. And the ecology of our vehicles is so bad that it has already created the most acute ecological situation of atmospheric pollution in literally all cities. But for a number of reasons, manufacturers of automobiles are in no hurry to improve them. And motor transport is still literally ruining all of us because of its extreme imperfection. And still for this fuel “voracity” of cars it is necessary to pay us, ordinary citizens. But there is a simple solution to all problems - EcoTop. All information about EcoTop is collected below.

EcoTop

There are various methods and devices for fuel economy gasoline engine. These include methods and devices for fuel and oxidizer activation, turbo charging, electronic dosing systems and electromagnetic fuel injectors, injectors, powerful electrical ignition systems, various homogenizers to improve the mixture formation and others. However, the vast majority of these innovations and developments do not significantly increase the fuel efficiency of a gasoline engine.

In addition, due to the complexity of technical solutions, many of these analogues are expensive to implement and, therefore, have never reached mass production.

Therefore, taking into account the urgency of this problem and the Russian difficulties in financing science and the implementation of new developments, we need a simple “oak” purely Russian solution to this problem.

2. MAIN STAGES OF CREATION AND FORMATION OF “ECOTOP”
Vortex device fuel economy automotive carburetor motor (abbreviated "ECOTOP") was first proposed and patented in 1998. It consists of a body, vortex nozzles inserted into the body, an air filter and air supply control. Later in 1999, the first versions of existing devices of this type were made: a vortex device for mixing fuel assemblies. At the same time, it was tested on the carburetor gasoline engine of a VAZ 2106 car. Experimental studies of one of the first versions of a vortex device for improving mixture formation were carried out on test stands, and when real driving a car in the city, immediately showed significant savings in petrol engine fuel. This fuel economy is the most significant in the engine modes, close to idling, and is about 40-50%. Experiments have also shown that the device also provides at the same time fuel savings and reduction of exhaust emissions from internal combustion engines. Moreover, in all dynamic modes of the engine. After all, the vortex of the fuel-air mixture of fuel assemblies in the intake tract of the engine from “Ekotop” is formed not only in the xx, but also when both carburetor flaps are opened .. Especially striking is the beneficial environmental effect of repeatedly reducing toxic carbon monoxide in the engine exhaust gases (5 -10 times.) Depending on the mode of operation of the motor. Certification tests of such “Ekonom” devices in the city of Samara and “Ecotop” at the head research institute of auto mechanics (NAMI, Moscow) as a whole also confirmed its fuel and ecological efficiency in all modes of operation of an automobile motor. The tests of the fuel assembly vortex mixers data were carried out on gasoline engines of VAZ vehicles in idling and city cycle modes on modern test benches. The “Ecotop” device was issued by the Gosstandart of Russia issued to the “Nitron” developer company a certificate of conformity No.ROSS RU.MT14.V09304, specifications and specifications TU 4591-001-56647860-2002 were developed and approved

3. WHAT DOES THE PHYSICAL ESSENCE OF ECOTOPE WORK?
The basis of this already patented simple aerodynamic design development is the vortex formation in the intake manifold of the internal combustion engine. Moreover, our previously patented invention of vortex inclined mixing and simultaneously adjustable depletion of the fuel-air mixture (FA). The effect of extremely fine crushing and homogenization of the fuel is achievable only with certain parameters and direction of the vortex and at a certain dose of additional atmospheric air supplied to the intake path of the motor from the atmosphere. It is in this case that the fuel assembly is the best homogenized and burns up in the combustion chambers of the internal combustion engine most fully. The device “Ecotop” effectively improves the operation of the motor in almost all of its modes, especially strongly in dynamic modes.

4. DESCRIPTION OF THE SIMPLE DESIGN OF ECOTOP
Structurally, the Ecotot device is quite simple and is a relatively thin vortex mechanical spacer with an original aerodynamic profile, which not only does not increase the aerodynamic resistance of the intake tract, but, on the contrary, reduces it due to the resulting vortex. which is installed under the standard serial carburetor of the car. This spacer is essentially an effective aerodynamic air-fuel mixture swirler (FA) and consists of only three main parts - the housing and two rings - air injectors inserted into its housing. The spacer has special calibrated inclined holes in the housing for communication with the atmosphere and the intake path of the engine for create an optimal atmospheric vortex in the motor. The design of the filter was further further simplified., Which reduced the cost of the product to 100 p. And even lower with the use of standard elements of this simple design.

5. CRUSHING AND CASTING MIXING
In this mode, thanks to "Ecotope", the maximum fragmentation of fuel particles occurs, the fuel film is completely disrupted from the inner walls of the intake path and many other interesting and useful effects in the cycle of preparation and combustion of fuel assemblies in the engine. As is well known, the ecological and many other parameters of all gasoline engines are the worst on the x.x. Our invention provides in this previously problematic environmental regime at the same time and a significant reduction in exhaust emissions (IG) of the internal combustion engine. Experiments have shown the effectiveness of mixing and deeper combustion of fuel assemblies. In the test reports of the Ecotop on serial ICEs, in particular, an increase in the idling speed (x.x.) of the motor from 900 rpm to 1400-1600 rpm is recorded. This effect experimentally confirms the effective improvement in the quality of the combustion of a homogenized lean fuel assembly.

6. Fuel economy efficiency
The efficiency of fuel economy of a specific motor vehicle depends largely on the correct one-time setting of the carburetor of the internal combustion engine after installation of the Ecotot device in the engine. After all, the viral rotation of the fuel mixture is transmitted to the engine itself, and therefore Ecotot increases the efficiency of fuel assembly combustion in combustion chambers. Therefore, the engine speed of the xx initially increases sufficiently (by 300-400 rpm). After re-adjusting the carburetor with “Ecotop” - again to the base speed of 900 rpm, we achieve the effect of fuel saving - reducing fuel consumption with a screw of quality x. x carburetor. Fuel consumption of the engine VAZ 2106 on the x.x. reduced by half. Simultaneously with the improvement of the completeness of combustion of such a processed fuel assembly, the toxicity of VG DIC is sharply reduced. So carbon monoxide when installed in the motor of the vortex device "Ecotop" decreased in VG by 10-15 times, and all others, for example, hydrocarbons were reduced by 30-40% .. Moreover, the experiments showed a decrease in fuel consumption and toxic components in the composition of VG ICE only x.h., but in other modes of operation of the engine.

7. MODERNIZATION OF VORTEX HOMOGENIZERS TYPE ECOTOP
In the process of developing the Ecotot device, a great deal of design and research and experimental work was done. In particular, the initial design of the fuel assembly swirler has been drastically simplified, with one of its simplest variants having a single-body design patented as well, optimal diameters and inclinations of the swirler holes in the housing itself and in the nozzle rings have been calculated, the material of the structural elements has been selected according to thermal and mechanical characteristics

8. EXPERIMENTS AND CALCULATIONS
Experiments and calculations showed the dependence of the engine operation at idle and in idle mode with this swirler, on the speed of the vortex and on the angle of inclination of the vortex flow to the carburetor normal .. The elements of the swirl were calculated, ensuring the optimum speed of the vortex, the degree of fuel flow depletion and the slope of the entrance of the vortex in the intake tract of the engine. During the experiments and finishing of the Ecotop device, the essential role of the primary carburetor setting and the enrichment rate of the fuel mixture produced by the carburetor was also found ... As you know, the most common mode of carburetor tuning, especially worn out engines, is to some re-enrichment of fuel assemblies. The need for such a setting of a worn carburetor is due to the need for a stable starter engine start, especially in winter. It is with such a soma of a common carburetor setting that the effect of fuel economy from the use of the Ecootop vortex device is maximum and reaches 15-20% in the Moscow urban cycle (idle time up to 30%) ... In the case of the optimal initial setting of an unworn carburetor, the saving effect fuel when installing "Ecotope" on the motor is slightly lower, but still there is the effect of environmental cleaning of VG ICE.

9. An EXAMPLE of the PRACTICAL IMPLEMENTATION of the INVENTION
Let us consider in more detail the work of the developed device vortex mixing "ECOTOP" The device works on gasoline carburetor internal combustion engines as follows. When the engine is started, an air vacuum is created in the intake manifold, under the action of which the fuel flows out of the crowd nozzle and is crushed in the main air flow. However, due to the carburetor throttle valve being almost completely closed. In this mode of operation of the engine, the fuel mixture is usually re-enriched and is not well mixed with air. So what exactly is the poor quality of fuel assemblies in this mode of operation of the engine and leads to excessive fuel consumption and increased toxicity of VH ICE. When installed on the engine of the device "Ecotop" under its carburetor, the work of the system for the preparation of the fuel assembly of the engine varies somewhat. Namely, in the idling mode of the motor, in its intake path through the tangential holes of our spacer below the throttle valve receives additional air flow from the atmosphere, metered and twisted in the aerodynamic profile of this device. As a result, this whirlwind twists the main flow of the fuel assembly and finely crushes the fuel droplets. In addition, due to the optimal slope of the entrance of this vortex in the intake tract, it tears off the fuel film from the inner walls of the intake tract of the motor and homogenizes it, creating the effect of additional savings and improving the quality of fuel assemblies. Moreover, as shown by experimental studies, partly this created whirlwind of fuel assemblies is transmitted to the combustion chambers themselves, improving its combustion quality and, consequently, the ecology of the engine. Of course, the greatest effect of improving the quality of fuel assemblies this device gives it in idle and in dynamic modes (when opening and closing throttle valves. But given the fact that the dynamic modes of operation of motors and idle mode of cars in cities (traffic lights, overloaded city tracks, and low speeds of traffic, traffic jams, etc.) takes up 30-40% of the total time of driving, the total fuel economy effect from Ecotop is quite large and on average 15-20%. The device requires almost no maintenance and diagnostics, is durable. We note once again that when installing the Ecotot device on a carburetor internal combustion engine, an additional additional adjustment of the carburetor for an economical mode of operation is necessary due to the increase in revolutions due to fuel assembly depletion and when activating our FA with the vortex method

10. ELECTRIZATION OF FA AND INTRODUCTION OF WATER INTO INTAKE TRACT
We are also conducting further technical upgrades of the proposed method and devices for the vortex homogenization of fuel assemblies with the aim of increasing the fuel efficiency of the engine. In particular, a method for electrification of fuel assemblies and water ballasting of the fuel mixture with distilled water vapor is proposed.

a) electrification of fuel assemblies
This becomes technically possible in the manufacture of a vortex mixer from heat-resistant plastics, from triboelectric materials, for example, from fluoroplastic or ebonite. The essence of this electric fuel crushing effect is the use of powerful Coulomb electrostatic repulsive forces of equally electrically charged fuel droplets from each other for such electric crushing followed by their fine crushing in the motor intake tract. Experiments have shown the possibility of achieving even more substantial homogenization effect of fuel assemblies in the case of electrostatic droplet crushing. fuel and electrification of fuel assemblies. As a result, a reduction in fuel consumption and toxicity of VH ICE by 5-10%

b) receiving and pumping water vapor into the combustion chambers of the internal combustion engine
Indeed, the modern thermal engine of the internal combustion engine has extremely low efficiency. and as a result, huge heat losses (up to 30 kW). So why not use them to get water vapor and inject it under pressure into the engine intake duct. And we did it. The effect of the efficiency of such a steam-fuel ICE is quite obvious. After all, with this use of waste heat from the internal combustion engine, a simple version of steam turbocharging into the engine is obtained, which allows saving up to 30-40% of the crowd while maintaining the same power of the internal combustion engine.

11. ABOUT THE PHYSICAL ESSENCE OF THE DATA INNOVATIONS
An additional effect of fuel economy of a car is achievable when introducing into the fuel assembly, along with the fuel assembly swirler, a metered amount of pure steam or distilled water in the intake tract. The idea of ​​ballasting gasoline with water is not new, however, in our case, the vortex processing of fuel assemblies is such a combined method (fuel assembly leaning along with dilution of fuel water) has a number of new advantages. The fact is that the depletion of fuel assemblies leads to a certain increase in the combustion temperature of the mixture in the engine combustion models. And if the Ecotop device is not correctly adjusted to a too lean mixture, there is a potential danger of the motor overheating when burning a lean fuel assembly. And the appearance in the process of burning toxic nitric oxide. And the dosed introduction of steam or water into the intake tract of the internal combustion engine and vortex active stirring with the rest of the fuel assembly just allows programmable reduction of the combustion temperature of the lean fuel assembly in the combustion chambers to an optimum level of 1000 degrees Celsius, and thereby limit or eliminate the effect of increasing the combustion temperature and eliminate the appearance of nitric oxide in the exhaust gases of the engine.
