How It Works

Hydrogen Power Technologies

How it Works

The market leading DCarb unit creates the perfect combination of Hydrogen and Oxygen gases that oxidize, pulverize and remove Carbon from your engine during your engine’s normal combustion process at idle.  Rather than storing highly pressurised and dangerous Hydrogen in your workshop, we create the Hydrogen (and Oxygen) on Demand by breaking down water during a scientifically controlled electrolysis process.

We plumb these gases into the engines intake to alter the combustion process. This Hydrogen and Oxygen combined create a vastly different burn characteristic within the combustion chamber removing the carbon that has built up over time.

Safe, Easy and Cheap to Use:

Not only are we producing the hydrogen on demand, we have also built a large number of safety features into the DCARB system

Dry Cell Technology

The use of Dry Cell technology means we can turn on or off the production of hydrogen almost instantly. The use of Wet Cell systems can see the production of Hydrogen (an Explosive Gas) for long periods after the unit is turned off

Engine stop safety switch

Our unit uses a sensor on the alternator to understand if the engine is still running or not. Therefore, if the engine stalls, the unit will stop producing hydrogen immediately.

Flash-back retardant

We have a special valve in the unit that will stop any potential explosion from injuring your technicians, your customer’s vehicle or your equipment. If a flame does manage to combust the hydrogen in the line, this valve harmlessly dissipates the flame and the shock wave.

Corrosive Scrubber Tank

All electrolysis systems (ours included) produce corrosive vapours that corrode aluminium, copper and brass engine components. These vapours must be filtered out to prevent engine damage. ONLY the DCarb system uses a scrubber filtration technology to remove these corrosive vapours material before they reach the engine.

We are so concerned about this particular issue that we also have an indicator fluid that will change colour and warn the operator if the filter has failed to remove the corrosive elements.

Low Operational Costs

Perhaps the most attractive element of this technology is its very low maintenance requirement and operational costs.

The unit costs approximately $0.40 / hour to operate!

Maintenance is taken care of by a single $40 / month expense where DCARB will supply all the consumable requirements pre-mixed ready to use. This ensures perfect and efficient operation every time

 

A Step above the Competition:

DCarb has spent considerable time understanding the various systems on the market to ensure that ours is the best choice when a business owner weighs up their commercial options. We were not the first to the market, but we believe we are now the best in the market We’ve provided a full side by side breakdown here.
