Abstract

The device described activator of motor fuels by the patent RF No. 2411074, which is facilitated by the fractional composition of gasoline, aviation and diesels fuel, rapeseed oil, as well as modification of them hydrocarbon molecules-family in the fuel. The prospects of application of the activator.

Activator tested three bench motor in Russia, environmental testing of exhaust emissions of engines in Rochester Institute (USA), control hematological indicators of eight grades of gasoline and three grades of diesel fuel, tens of chromatogram fuels before and after activation, control freezing point and smoke of diesel engines. Activator generates a unique water-fuel emulsion. Chromatograms of activated diesel and gasoline fuels showed a decrease in the proportion of heavy hydrocarbons and the formation of light molecules: hexane, heptane, 3 metal-pentane to 37 %, reducing the sulphur content from 0.032 to 0.015 %, resins from 7.4 to 0.8 mg/100 ml. In gasoline, the content of octane-determining toluene increased to 16 %, in jet fuel nonane and decan to 21 %. Successful activation of biofuels.

Chromatographs research, bench and operational tests confirmed the irreversibility of the modification and the continuation of it after the release of fuels from the activator. Activation helps reduce the consumption of fuels by 20-27 % without reduction capacity of engine, decreasing the opacity of exhaust gases of diesel engines, toxic-ness of petrol engines, the reduced freezing point of diesel fuel, it should be cleaned of tars and sulphur compounds.

Stable, effective and versatile action on fuel was introduced in the activator according to the patent of Russian Federation No. 2411074. Its non-reversibility of fuels suitable for automotive, transport, aviation and liquid-propellant engines. Achieved activation is useful in the production of fuels that meet the requirements of EURO-3 and EURO-4. Activation of different petroleum products are brought to close indicators, with the selection of sulphur, with the destruction of resinous compounds, with decreasing temperature of freezing.

Introduction

Improvement of engines in the motor industry and improve their service is very important, increases their reliability, resource, reduces fuel consumption, the harm of exhaust gases. It is solved mainly by high-tech and expensive modernization of their fuel systems.

However, the improvement of fuel efficiency and environmental friendliness of engines can be solved more easily - the modification of fuels. For this purpose, test magnetic and electromagnetic [1], cavitation Vorobyov Yu, et al. [1,2-5], tribiotechnical processing, homogenization of fuels [1], the introduction of additives. But outside the magnetic field changes reversibly fuels, limiting such activation.

At the same time, in 1887, Mechanochemistry was revealed as a class of changes in substances under the influence of mechanical forces [1,6,7]. By 1960, the Mechanochemistry of motor oils was generalized [6]. In General, it is shown that even where there are strong bonds, their rupture by mechanical stresses above the strength limit of atomic bonds is possible [6].

A consequence of Mechanochemistry, for example, in heptane is the rupture of chains with energy yield of ~419 kJ/mol Akhmatov AS [6], the appearance of free valences, radicals, for example, R-CH2 - with high reactivity, although the changes can be reversible.y

Mechanical activation is characterized by simplicity, low power consumption [8]. Production of motor fuels and oils from oil requires high energy costs in large-scale installations, and mechanical activation increases the depth of processing in simple equipment. Research in Mechanochemistry continues [1,6-10].

Mechanochemistry destroys oil fractions with the formation of low-molecular homologues, forms stable products, such as methane, hydrogen, C, destruction of resins, sulfur compounds and sulfur deposition.

The mechanism of destruction of saturated hydrocarbons is the rupture of chains, and unsaturated ones are destroyed through the formation of saturated bonds. It is possible to hydrogenate their products of destruction of the initial substance [8]. A distinctive feature of the Mechanochemistry of hydrocarbons continues outside the equipment.

A significant breakthrough in the activation of fuels was the creation of an activator (RF patent No. 2411074), thanks to which the engines achieved savings of up to 31.9% of gasoline [2,3]. This is confirmed in [1], where step by step, the electro-magnetic activation of gasoline increased its calorific value by 28 %! But the implementation of the breakthrough was hampered by the lack of a clear activation mechanism.

Object of Research

The object of research - the mixer-activator according to the patent of Russian Federation No. 2411074 [2,3]. The activator (Figure 1) in a cylinder 150 mm long, 30-50 mm in diameter has three chambers, is integrated into any fuel system of engines, does not require a drive, chemicals, does not reduce the life of engines.

In the first chamber of the activator takes place a counter-helical stirring, abrasion jets, the fragmentation of the clusters. Through the capillaries, the jets are injected into the second chamber and their cavitation is crushed. In the third chamber, the fragments of molecules are pressed through the micro foils, which continues their rupture. This ensures the irreversibility of fuel conversion - a special advantage of the activator, its uniqueness.

Methods and Results of Tests of the Activator

The activator has been repeatedly checked by chromatography of various fuels, control of their consumption Vorobyov Yu V, et al. [2,3], emission of harmful gases of automotive engines, lowtemperature properties. Chromatograms of activated diesel fuel and gasoline showed a decrease in heavy hydrocarbons and the formation of lungs: hexane, geptan, 3-methyl pentane to 37 %, a decrease in sulfur content from 0.032 to 0.015 %, resins from 7.4 to 0.8 mg/100 ml. In gasoline, the content of octane-determining toluene in-creased to 16 %, in aviation kerosene nonan and decan - to 21 % [2]. Successful activation of biofuels.

Such studies with the activator were carried out

• Bench tests of the KamAZ-740 and ZMZ-406 engine in July 2011 at the Military Aviation Engineering University.

• At the research Institute VNIITiN in 2013 for the complex of methods of accelerated testing of petroleum products, as well as on engines, single-cylinder installations, using the methods of dam monitoring specified in the reference document on petrochemicals. The activated avtobenzines Normal-80, Regular-92, Premium-95, Super-98 according to GOST R 51106-97, gasoline AI-92 according to TU 38.001165-97, AI- 98 according to TU 38.401-58-127-95. Were tested gasoline «Superlux» and «Premium» company «Beyond Retroleum», as well as diesel fuel grades B and C, type II, fuel class 1 type I according to GOST R 52368-2005 (EN 590:2009, diesel fuel Euro).

• The improved activator was tested on diesel YaMZ-236 with three different fuels for installations in the line to the injection pump and on the discharge from it [3].

• The activator was tested in Rochester Institute of Technology (USA), where the decrease in sulfur content in fuels up to 50 %, resins 7-9 times, emissions in the exhaust gases: NO - up to 17 %, NO2 - up to 14 %, and CO - up to 49 %.

•In 2009-2016, a dozen activators were tested on gasoline and diesel cars with a reduction in gasoline consumption to 31.9 %!

Analysis of research results

What are the reasons for the significant [3] increase of fuel calorific value by the activator? Note, that for burning the fuel must be dispersed to molecules, which seems to be facilitated in the activator. Further, when warming up, molecules must undergo fragmentation, the separation of hydrogen atoms, a complete gap between the carbon atoms. In parallel, the dissociation of oxygen molecules should go. Only after that the atoms of the fuel combine with atoms of oxygen. And if the dissociation of molecules of fuel and oxygen is carried out in advance, the heat of combustion will not be spent on the preparation of fuel and its calorific value will be greater than in the calorimetric bomb. This may be one of the reasons for the increase in calorific value (Table 2), which is confirmed by the increased, in comparison with liquid oil products, calorific value of oil gases, as if dispersed hydrocarbons, where there is no need to break the bonds between the carbon atoms.

Table 2:Conversion of hydrocarbon molecules under the influence of electro-magnetic and tribochemical effects according [12].

(Table 2) Conversion of hydrocarbon molecules under the influence of electro-magnetic and tribochemical effects according [1].

Thus, it can be assumed that the rupture of bonds in hydrocarbons with the formation of short - and long-lived radicals [11] reduces the cost of combustion heat for splitting molecules into atoms. And the longer the hydrocarbon chain is, the more significant the release of the energy of bonds in the chains can be (Table 3). And prof. Kanarev FM [15] emphasized that the more acts of mechano-chemistry influence on the substance, the deeper its modification. Table 3 shows that with the elongation of the molecules, the energy costs for the bonds of carbon atoms grow significantly, and by mechano-chemistry it can be isolated.

Describes the features of the Mechanochemistry confirmed that modification of fuel continues beyond the activator according to the patent of Russian Federation No. 2411074. So, I have activated fuel source significantly increases in the mixture the proportion of activated:

a. in the in commercial fuel introduced 20% activated fuel (4.6% of the light fractions) and after 15 min the mixture was formed 12% of light fractions,

b. similarly, if you enter 30 % activated (6,9% of light fractions) was created 39% of light fractions,

c. only 27% of light fractions were detected during the introduction of 40% activated (9.2% of light fractions),

d. and after entering 50 % of the activated light fractions revealed even less.

The modification of the fuels behind the activator can also be explained by the action of free radicals [11]. But are all the mechanisms of increasing the heat of combustion of activated fuels identified? Here you can rely on the modern, the greatest physicist of all time, physical-chemistry Professor Kanarev FM [12]. It is shown that for the destruction of bonds between valence electrons of atoms it is enough to spend 2,56 eV of mechanical energy, and for the thermal break it is required twice as much - 5,13 eV. Since each isolated electron for its stability must obtain a thermal photon with an energy of 2,56 eV. But after mechanical separation of the valence electrons, instead of heat, absorb the ether photon total energy of 5.13 eV. Absorbing them, the valence electrons become active, join the pieces of broken molecules, emit photons of unnecessary essential and saturate the substance with energy of 5.13 eV!

So, having spent the activator of 2.56 eV of mechanical and chemicals that saturate the substance with energy of two thermal photons of 5.13 eV or 248 kJ/mol what can be the main reason for the increase of the calorific value of fuels (Table 2 & 3) and reduction of their consumption.

And if the connections are destroyed by resonant methods Popova NI, et al. [12], it will be possible to corner the modification of fuels, further increasing their calorific value. Confirmation of this is made in water electrolytic cells prof. Kanarev F.M. the heat transfers co-efficient value 29 000 %!!! [12].

However, on fuel combustion prof. Kanarev F. M. expressed another: «All effects associated with an increase in the combustion pressure of fuels in closed cavities are formed not by gases, but by photons» [12]. From here it is possible to propose a dual mechanism for increasing the calorific value of purchased fuel.

Activated diesel fuel also reduces the smoke of diesel engines. So, on bus NefAZ-5299-30-33 the smoke content was 3.5 m-1 (77.8 %), and with the activator – 2.7 m-1 (68.7 %). Low-temperature properties of diesel fuel L-0,05-62 GOST 305-82 tested in a climatic chamber KTV-0,08. It was revealed that commodity heating at a temperature of -30 °C completely lost its fluidity, and the activated retained its at -45 °C.

Conclusion

For the first time achieved a stable, efficient and versatile effect on motor fuels. Its irreversibility significantly reduces fuel consumption and can be used in their pro-duction according to EURO-4 standards.
