EcoTop - Fuel Economy and Power Increase

EcoTop is a device that improves the following characteristics:

  • 15-20% fuel savings
  • Acceleration dynamics increase by 20-30%
  • Decrease in CO by 8-14 times
  • Compliance with Euro-2
  • EcoTop fits all carburetor cars

A simple and effective method for saving fuel for ICE vehicles (by 10-15%) was developed, patented, and tested. At the same time, it allows one to reduce the toxicity of vehicle exhaust emissions by dozens of times when using simple vortex mixing devices.

Motor transport is the main culprit of toxic atmospheric pollution in cities, since it is the road transport of goods and passengers in cities that is the most popular and in demand. However, the modern gasoline engine of cars is not only extremely imperfect from an environmental point of view, but also primitive in terms of energy performance. He possesses an efficiency only about 20%, and since fuel is now expensive and constantly rising in price, this fuel inefficiency of engines becomes a real ruin not only for car owners, but for all of us. After all, the cost of expensive trucking of goods and passengers is our everyday expenses ..

Despite a significant number of patents, developments in the field of fuel economy and reduction of toxicity of exhaust gases, a 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 air pollution in literally all cities. But for a number of reasons, the factories - manufacturers of motor vehicles are in no hurry to improve them. And motor transport, as before, literally ruins us all because of its extreme imperfection. And as before, we, ordinary citizens, have to pay for this fuel “gluttony” of cars. 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 saving fuel of gasoline internal combustion engines. These include methods and devices for activating the fuel and oxidizer, turbocharging, electronic metering systems and electromagnetic fuel injectors, injectors, powerful electric ignition systems, various homogenizers to improve mixture formation and others. However, the vast majority of these innovations and developments do not significantly increase the fuel economy of a gasoline engine.

In addition, due to the complexity of technical solutions, many of these analogues are expensive to implement and therefore have not reached mass production.

Therefore, given the relevance of this problem and the Russian difficulties in financing science and implementing new developments, it is precisely a simple “oak” purely Russian solution to this problem.

2. BASIC STAGES OF CREATION AND FORMATION OF ECOTOPE
The vortex device fuel economy of a car carburetor engine (ECOTOP for short) was first proposed and patented back in 1998. It consists of a casing, vortex nozzles inserted into the casing, an air filter and an air supply regulator. Later, in 1999, the first versions of operating devices of this type — a fuel assembly vortex mixing device — were made. And at the same time, it was tested on a carburetor gasoline engine of a VAZ 2106 car. Experimental studies of one of the first versions of a vortex mixing device to improve mixture formation were carried out on test stands, and with a real car driving around the city, they immediately showed significant fuel economy for gasoline ICE. This fuel economy is most significant in engine modes close to idle, and is about 40-50%. The experiments also showed that the device also provides both fuel economy and reduction of the internal combustion engine toxicity. Moreover, in all dynamic modes of the internal combustion engine. Indeed, the vortex of the fuel-air mixture of the fuel assemblies in the intake path of the ICE from Ecotope is formed not only on the chemical engine, but also when both carburetor flaps are opened .. The useful environmental effect of the multiple reduction of toxic carbon monoxide in the exhaust gases of the engine is especially striking (in 5 -10 times.) Depending on the operating mode of the motor. Certification tests of such Ekonom devices in Samara and Ekotop at the head research auto-mechanical institute (NAMI, Moscow) as a whole also confirmed its fuel and environmental efficiency in all operating modes of the automobile motor. Tests of fuel assembly vortex mixers were tested on gasoline engines of VAZ cars in idle and city cycle modes on modern test benches. The State Standard of Russia issued the compliance certificate No. РОСС RU.МТ14.В09304 to the Ecotop device by the State Standard of Russia, and the technical specifications TU 4591-001-56647860-2002 were developed and approved

3. WHAT IS THE PHYSICAL NATURE OF ECOTOPE'S WORK
This already patented simple aerodynamic design is based on vortex formation in the intake manifold of the internal combustion engine. Moreover, our previously patented invention of inclined vortex mixing and simultaneously controlled depletion of the fuel-air mixture (FA). The effect of extremely fine crushing and homogenization of fuel is achievable only with certain parameters and direction of the vortex and at a certain dose of additional atmospheric air supplied to the motor inlet from the atmosphere. It is in this case that the fuel assembly is homogenized in the best way and burns most fully in the combustion chambers of the internal combustion engine. The Ecotope device effectively improves the operation of the motor in almost all of its modes, especially especially in dynamic modes.

4. DESCRIPTION OF THE SIMPLE ECOTOPE DESIGN
Structurally, the Ecotope device is quite simple and represents a relatively thin vortex mechanical spacer with an original aerodynamic profile, which not only does not increase the aerodynamic resistance of the inlet tract, but, on the contrary, reduces it due to the vortex arising. which is installed under the standard serial carburetor of the car. This spacer is essentially an effective aerodynamic swirl of the air-fuel mixture (FA) and consists of only three main parts - the body and two rings — air nozzles inserted into its body. The spacer has special calibrated inclined holes in the body for communication with the atmosphere and the motor inlet for creating an optimal atmospheric vortex in the motor. The filter design was further simplified., Which reduced the cost of the product to 100 r. And even lower when using standard elements of this simple design.

5. CRUSHING AND MIXING THE MOBBLE
In this mode, thanks to Ecotope, the maximum fragmentation of fuel particles occurs, the fuel film completely breaks off from the inner walls of the inlet tract and many other interesting and useful effects in the cycle of preparation and combustion of fuel assemblies in the engine. As you know, the environmental and many other parameters of all gasoline engines are the worst on h.kh. Our invention provides in this previously problematic environmental mode, at the same time, a significant reduction in the toxicity of exhaust gases (VG) of internal combustion engines. The experiments showed the effectiveness of mixture formation and deeper combustion of fuel assemblies. In the Ecotope test reports on serial ICE, in particular, an increase in the idle speed (h.h.) of the engine from 900 rpm to 1400-1600 rpm was recorded. This effect experimentally confirms the effective improvement in the quality of the fuel mixture of the combustion of homogenized lean fuel assemblies.

6. Fuel Economy Efficiency
The fuel economy efficiency of a particular motor of a motor vehicle largely depends on the correct one-time setting of the internal combustion engine carburetor after installing our Ecotop device in the motor. After all, the virulent rotation of the fuel mixture is transmitted to the engine itself, and therefore, Ecotope increases the efficiency of fuel assembly combustion in combustion chambers. Therefore, the engine rpm x.x initially increases quite strongly (by 300-400 rpm) .. After re-adjusting the carburetor with "Ecotope" - again to the base speed of 900 rpm we achieve the effect of fuel economy - reducing fuel consumption with a quality x screw. x carburetor. Fuel consumption of the internal combustion engine VAZ 2106 at h.kh. halved. Simultaneously with the improvement of the completeness of combustion of such treated fuel assemblies, the toxicity of the internal combustion engine IC decreases sharply. So, carbon monoxide when installed in the motor of the Ecotope vortex device decreased by 10-15 times in the SH, and all other, for example, hydrocarbons were reduced by 30-40% .. Moreover, experiments showed a decrease in fuel consumption and toxic components in the SH of ICE did not only on h.h., but also in other modes of engine operation.

7. MODERNIZATION OF VORTEX HOMOGENIZERS OF ECOTOP TYPE
In the process of developing the Ecotope device, a great deal of design, survey and experimental work was done. In particular, the initial design of the fuel assembly swirl swirl is sharply simplified, and one of its simplest variants also patented a single-housing design in general, calculated the optimal diameters and slopes of the swirl swirl holes in the housing itself and in the nozzle rings, and selected the material of the structural elements for thermal and mechanical characteristics

8. EXPERIMENTS AND CALCULATIONS
Experiments and calculations showed the dependence of the stability of the engine idling and at idle with this swirl on the speed of the vortex and on the angle of inclination of the vortex flow to the carburetor normal. Elements of the swirl were calculated to ensure optimal speed of the vortex, the degree of depletion of the fuel assembly flow and the slope of the entrance of the vortex into the intake tract of the engine. In the process of experiments and refinement of the Ecotop device, the essential role of the primary carburetor tuning and the degree of enrichment of the fuel mixture produced by the carburetor was also found out ... As you know, the most common mode of tuning carburetors, especially worn motors, for some re-enrichment of fuel assemblies. The need for such a setting for a worn carburetor is due to the need for a stable starter motor start, especially in winter. It is with such a widespread tuning of carburetors that the fuel saving effect of using the Ecotop vortex device is maximum and reaches about 15-20% in the Moscow city cycle (idle time up to 30%) ... In the case of the optimal initial setting of an unused carburetor, the saving effect fuel when installing "Ecotope" on the engine is slightly lower, but the effect of environmental cleaning of the internal combustion engine IC remains.

9. EXAMPLE OF THE PRACTICAL EMBODIMENT OF THE INVENTION
Let us consider in more detail the work of the developed ECOTOP vortex-mixing device. The device operates on gasoline carburetor ICEs as follows. When the engine starts, an air discharge is created in the intake manifold, under the influence of which fuel flows out of the crowd nozzle and is crushed in the main air stream. However, due to the almost completely closed throttle of the carburetor. In this mode of engine operation, the fuel mixture is usually over-enriched, and poorly mixed with air. So it is the poor quality of the fuel assemblies in this mode of operation of the engine that leads to an excessive consumption of fuel and an increase in the toxicity of the internal combustion engine. When the Ecotope device is installed on the motor under its carburetor, the operation of the fuel assembly preparation system of the motor changes somewhat. Namely, in the idle mode of the engine, an additional air stream from the atmosphere, metered and twisted in the aerodynamic profile of this device, enters into its intake tract through the tangential holes of our spacer below the throttle valve. As a result, this vortex swirls the main fuel assembly flow and finely splits drops of fuel. In addition, due to the optimal inclination of the entrance of this vortex into the inlet tract, it tears off the fuel film from the inner walls of the inlet duct of the motor and homogenizes it, creating the effect of additional savings and improving the quality of fuel assemblies. Moreover, as experimental studies have shown, in part this created fuel assembly vortex is also transmitted to the combustion chambers themselves, improving its combustion quality and, consequently, the ecology of the engine. Of course, this device gives the greatest effect of improving the quality of fuel assemblies precisely in idle and dynamic modes (when opening and closing throttle valves. But given the fact that the dynamic modes of motors and the idle mode of cars in cities (traffic lights, congested city tracks, and low speeds of traffic jams, etc.) takes 30-40% of the total time of driving cars, the total effect of fuel economy from "Ecotope" is quite large and on average sufficient 15-20%. The device practically does not require maintenance and diagnostics, it is durable. We note once again that when installing the Ecotop device on a carburetor ICE, an additional additional adjustment of the carburetor to an economical mode of operation is necessary due to the effect of an increase in speed due to depletion of fuel assemblies and when activating fuel assemblies with our vortex method

10. ELECTRIZATION OF FA; INTRODUCTION OF WATER INTO THE INLET OF THE ICE
We also carry out further technical modernizations of the proposed method and devices for the vortex homogenization of fuel assemblies in order to increase the fuel economy of internal combustion engines. In particular, a method for electrifying fuel assemblies and water ballasting of a fuel mixture with distilled steam is proposed.

a) fuel assembly electrification
This becomes technically possible in the manufacture of a vortex mixer from heat-resistant plastic, from triboelectric materials, for example, from fluoroplastic or ebonite. The essence of this effect of electric fuel crushing is to use powerful Coulomb electrostatic forces to repel similarly charged droplets of fuel from each other for such electric crushing, followed by their thin crushing in the motor inlet duct. Experiments have shown the possibility of achieving an even more significant effect of fuel assembly homogenization in the case of droplet electrostatic crushing fuel and electrification of fuel assemblies. As a result, a decrease in fuel consumption and toxicity of the internal combustion engine by 5-10%

b) receipt and injection of water vapor into the combustion chamber of the internal combustion engine
Indeed, the modern internal combustion engine thermal engine has an 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 motor inlet. And we did it. The economical effect of such a steam-fuel ICE is quite obvious. Indeed, with this use of ICE waste heat energy, a simple version of steam turbocharging in a motor is obtained, which already saves up to 30-40% of the crowd while maintaining the same ICE power.

11. ABOUT THE PHYSICAL NATURE OF THESE INNOVATIONS
An additional effect of car fuel economy is achievable when, along with the fuel assembly swirling unit, a metered amount of pure steam or the amount of distilled water into the inlet tract is introduced into the fuel assembly .. The idea of ​​ballasting gasoline with water is not new. However, in our case, fuel assembly vortex processing is such a combined method (fuel depletion with dilution of fuel with water) has a number of new advantages. The fact is that the depletion of fuel assemblies leads to a slight increase in the combustion temperature of the mixture in the combustion models of the engine. And if the Ecotope device is improperly adjusted to a too lean mixture, there is a potential danger of the motor overheating when the lean fuel assembly is burning. And the appearance in the process of this combustion of toxic nitric oxide. And the dosed introduction of steam or water into the intake path of the internal combustion engine and their active vortex mixing with the rest of the fuel assemblies just allows you to programmatically reduce the combustion temperature of the lean fuel assemblies in the combustion chambers to the optimum level of 1000 degrees Celsius, and thereby limit or even eliminate the effect of increasing the combustion temperature and eliminate the appearance of nitric oxide in the exhaust gases of the internal combustion engine.
