The Center for Applied Innovation is currently working with it's newest Associate on a revolutionary new application of Nano Technology.
Just some examples of the results so far:
|North Carolina Postal Service||12.7% improvement in fuel efficiency|
|North Carolina State Highway Patrol||13.4% improvement in fuel efficiency|
|Fleet diesel delivery trucks||19.6% improvement in fuel efficiency
92.0% reduction in HC emissions
|Fleet Ford Ranger pick-up trucks||35.2% improvement in fuel efficiency|
A small innovative technology company has invented and patented Nano-ceramic treatments that extend the service life of "friction-causing pairs" such as pistons in cylinders, bearings in engines and other machines, bullets in barrels, and gears where at least one of the friction-causing pairs is made of steel.
In testing this nano technology was proven to extend the service life of turbine and diesel engine pump rotors and injectors, provide an ashless replacement for ZDDP in low sulfur diesel fuels, reduce friction and extend the service life of ceramic and metallic cutting tools.
The products they make consist of Nano-ceramics and Organic Monomers. Both classes of compounds are available as liquids, gels, or aerosols and can be custom formulated and packaged to specific applications and temperature ranges.
The technology arises from the unique ability of the compounds to impregnate the surfaces of friction-causing pairs with physical properties resembling those of ceramic surfaces, specifically very low friction and high micro-hardness.
As an example, expect the following from nano-ceramic internal combustion engine treatment:
As an example, when used as a fuel additive (in very low concentrations) the additives will:
A Fusion ferrosilicate surface has the following properties (which someone there a lot smarter than me probably understands):
The micro-hardness of both surfaces combined with their low roughness (appr. 0,06µm) results in a low coefficient of friction, meaning that the mechanisms can work without any lubrication in certain conditions. (Imagine the advantage of a helicopter that loses all the oil in the rotor gears from a cracked case but had the ability to remain airborne long enough to fly to a safe, unpopulated areas and land safely vice the almost immediate "lock-up" today).
The results in recent applications seem impressive. For example, in Internal Combustion Engines, US Postal Service vehicles report a 20.8% improvement in efficiency (mileage) after FUSION nano-treatment. HC emissions dropped from 19 ppm to 0 ppm. A Ford F250 truck with 125,000 miles reported a 37% increase in range.
On English city buses, vehicles treated with yhese compounds have exceeded 65,000 miles without an oil change. Diesel emission particulates were reduced by one third.These production and delivery ready nano-compounds are currently being tested by state government and highway patrol vehicles as well as one of the largest diesel fleet operators in the US.The results as lubricants is equally impressive, particularly in Gun Barrels where the the US Olympic biathlon team reported a 35% improvement in accuracy on a 10 round, 50 yard pattern. New Jersey Institute of Technology reported a 25% improvement in accuracy on a badly worn 30-06. Colt and another OEM's reported improvements in accuracy of new M-16's from 17.6% to 19.8%. So this appears not only to extend the barrel life and improve accuracy of old weapons but also increase accuracy of new weapons.
