  • Publication number: 20220175987
    Abstract: Ultraviolet light, and in particular, UVC electromagnetic radiation hard surface and atmospheric disinfection system is able to totally disinfect a room or space by the sheer volume of UVC output and designed reflectance of the system. The reflectivity of the surface material of the device can be as high as 97% giving the UVC electromagnetic radiation, with a wavelength of 180 nm to 280 nm, almost twice the output looking forward. UVC radiation is not a straight path wavelength; the devices multi-faceted reflectance surfaces help overcome UVC's pathway divergence making its bacterial kill rate higher. The systems short-wave germicidal UVC light assemblies are both self-dependent and co-dependent; if you have a room with an adjoining bathroom you can place a single unit there with the same results.

  • Patent number: 7828225
    Abstract: A system and method for delivering catalytic molecular structure to a combustion chamber is disclosed. Catalyst base materials are reduced to a micronic fog by a device using the ultrasonic vibration of a piezoelectric disc. The liquid base materials evaporate instantly upon entering the engines air stream therefore releasing pure catalyst molecules into the combustion zone, thus reducing the time taken for catalytic combustion to the lowest denominator possible and allowing for the greatest effect achievable. This further reduces the amount of catalyst needed in the base solution compared to any other type of device or additive. The system also allows a user to control the delivery rate of the catalyst to the combustion chamber.

  • Patent number: 7584905
    Abstract: Efficient fuel combustion catalyst delivery device and method are provided. A fuel combustion catalyst delivery device includes a storage vessel that contains a liquid. The liquid includes one or more catalytic materials. The storage vessel is attached to a nebulizer that can convert the liquid to an aerosol to be delivered into an air intake of a combustion zone. The aerosol can accelerate fuel combustion. The storage vessel and the nebulizer are made from materials suitable to be exposed to the liquid and the aerosol. The storage vessel and the nebulizer are also suitable to be placed in proximity to the combustion zone such as an engine compartment so that the aerosol can be delivered into the air intake of the combustion zone easily and effectively. The surfaces of the delivery device exposed to the liquid or the aerosol may be made of corrosion-resistant or inert materials if the liquid is acidic.
