WO/2015/151024 METHOD AND INSTALLATION FOR SUPPLYING OF WATER OR OTHER VAPOUR TO THE INLET AIR OF AN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE||WO||08.10.2015|
||PCT/IB2015/052358||SINDTECH SP. Z O.O.||KOLASA, Piotr|
A method for the supply of water or other vapour to the inlet air of an internal combustion engine (1) consists in that exhaust gases directed from the exhaust pipe (2) to a copper coil (5) of an exchanger (4) undergo a process of low- temperature conversion of carbon monoxide with water with release of CO2
and H2 on a copper catalyst. Said exhaust gases go through a membraneless evaporator (9), as fumes being a mixture of exhaust gases, vapour, drops of water and CO2
and H2; released from the conversion process, they are directed in a pulse manner on an electrovalve ( 16 ) to the reactors' (7) chamber (6), where they are heated with the heat of exhaust gases and conversion in the exchanger, undergo acceleration and homogenisation in the reactor (7) nozzles and ionisation loosening the atomic bonds of water in the reactor (7). The exhausts gases released from the reactors'(7) chamber (6) in the form of dry saturated vapour are directed into an inlet manifold (12) of the engine (1) combustion chamber. The installation for the supply of water or other vapour to the inlet air of an internal combustion engine (1) has on an inlet shunt tube (3) of the installation system connected to an exhaust pipe (2) of the engine (1) a built-in reactor (7), integrated with the conversion exchanger ( 4 ) in the form of a copper coil (5) wound onto the chamber (6) of the reactor (7). The coil (5) of the conversion exchanger (4) and the inlet of the reactor (7) chamber are connected by means of an exhaust line ( 8 ) and a vapour pipe (10), on which is mounted an electrovalve ( 16 ) to a membraneless evaporator (9), whereas the outlet of the reactors' (7) chamber (6) from the side of the engine (1) is connected to the inlet manifold (12) of the engine (1) by means of an outlet channel (11). The membraneless evaporator ( 9 ) is connected to the inlet manifold (12) of the engine (1) by means of a calibrated pipe (15).
