  • Patent number: 10100416
    Abstract: An application for a recycler includes a pressure and temperature resistant metal vessel that is filled with a liquid. Within the vessel is at least one submerged electric arc between a pair of electrodes (e.g. carbon based electrodes) powered by either a DC or AC current. The electric arc produces a combustible gas as the liquid is pumped through a bore in one or both of the electrodes, delivering the liquid directly to the location of the arc, thereby reducing or eliminating any ignition of the gas by the arc. Should ignition occur, at least one vent in the electrode(s) or electrode holder(s) vents pressure from within the bore to the vessel area outside of the electrode(s).

  • Patent number: 10100262
    Abstract: A method for bonding a fluid to a substance includes filling a first pressure vessel with the fluid and pressurizing the first pressure vessel to a first pressure. The fluid is the circulated through an electric arc formed within the first pressure vessel, thereby creating a treated fluid. Within a second pressure vessel, the substance is exposed to a magnetic field, thereby forming a polarized substance. The treated fluid and polarized substance are combined under a second pressure within a third pressure vessel, thereby exposing the treated fluid to the polarized substance at a pressure sufficient to achieve a bond.

  • Publication number: 20180093248
    Abstract: A flow-through electric arc system includes a chamber within an insulated sleeve having an anode at one end of the insulated sleeve and a cathode at a distal end of the insulated sleeve. Fluid flows from an inlet of the chamber, around the insulated sleeve, then through the insulated sleeve where it is exposed to an electric arc formed between the anode and cathode. The fluid and gases then flow out of an outlet of the chamber and through a baffle that extracts the gases from the fluid so that the fluid is returned for repeated exposure to the electric arc.

  • Publication number: 20170361334
    Abstract: A system for extracting metals (e.g. precious metals or dangerous metals) from a substrate material such as sludge from a lake bed or sewage treatment facility includes processing the substrate material and metals by exposing the substrate material and metals to the plasma of an electric arc. Then, the exposed substrate material and metals are passed through an electrically charged collection grid in which the metals, now electrically charged, are attracted to the collection grid and hold to the collection grid and the substrate material exits the collection grid with less concentrations (or none) of the metals. In some embodiments, in addition to recovering the metals (e.g. precious metals, dangerous metals, etc.), a flammable gas is produced.

  • Publication number: 20170176001
    Abstract: A system for incinerating bio-hazardous waste includes a chamber having there within a hydrocarbon feedstock and a plurality of electrodes between which an electric arc is formed, producing an arc-based gas. The system includes at least one primary combustion chamber in which an amount of bio-hazardous waste is incinerated. A source of combustion is interfaced to each of the at least one primary combustion chambers, thereby providing heat and ignition to the bio-hazardous waste. A secondary combustion chamber accepts fumes from the at least one primary combustion chamber and combines the fumes with the arc-formed gas and then the fumes mixed with the arc-formed gas are combusted.

  • Publication number: 20160264928
    Abstract: A method of processing excrement of mammals, fish, birds, reptiles, insects, and/or humans includes sterilizing the excrement to create a sterile fluid, adding one or more nutrients and adding microorganisms such as genus bacillus to the sterile fluid creating a processed fluid. The good microorganisms multiply and divide in the processed fluid, thereby reducing the growth of harmful or unwanted microorganisms in the processed fluid. The processed fluid is then, for example, released into waterways or used to water/fertilized crops.

  • Publication number: 20150151269
    Abstract: A method of exposing a fluid to plasma for the production of a gas includes forming a plasma within a bore within a sleeve, the sleeve having an input end, a central area, and an output end. Fluid flows from the input end of the sleeve, through the bore within the sleeve, and out of the output end of the sleeve at a velocity, such that, bi-products that are released from the fluid by reaction of the fluid with the plasma are flushed out of the sleeve along with gases produced by the fluid being exposed to the plasma and any fluid that remains. At least some of the bi-products that are released from the fluid by the reaction are prevented from accumulating on the sleeve.

  • Patent number: 7780924
    Abstract: An apparatus for making a combustible gas that comprises a vessel filled with a liquid, a submerged electric arc between a moving anode acting on a cathode moving in a direction perpendicular to the anode. An incandescence of an interface area between the electrodes is enclosed on all sides by insulating skirts, except for clearances suitable for the flow of the liquid through the electric arc and the exit of the liquid. The gas produced by the submerged electric arc acting on the liquid, bubbles to the surface of the liquid for collection at a desired pressure, physical and chemical esoenergetic reactions caused by the electric arc generate heat acquired by the liquid, which can be used to in an external heat exchanger to generate steam or electricity, and solid residues accumulate in strainers placed along a liquid flow for periodic collection.
