Summary of emissions tests of Carbonflo by Professor G. E. Andrews, BSc, PhD, CeEng, MIMechE, memASME, MSAE, Reader in Combustion Engineering, Leeds University Department of Fuel and Energy

“Carbonflo was found to reduce CO emissions in both petrol and diesel engines and the magnitude of the reduction varied with the engine test condition from 12-70%. The mean reduction was 40% for the petrol engine and 20% for the diesel.

Carbonflo was found to reduce NOx emissions slightly for some test conditions of petrol engines and the level of reduction varied between 0 and 70% for the two engines tested. Carbonflo was found to reduce total UHC emissions in diesel engines and liquid UHC in petrol engines. The maximum 25% reduction in total UHC for the diesel engine occurred after 50 hours testing.”

Gudfinnur G. Johnsen, Technical Dept. L.I.U. (Fisheries Association of Iceland)

“Testing was conducted by the Technical Department of the Fisheries Association of Iceland and the School for Marine Engineers, supported by the L.I.U. (Federation of Icelandic Fishing Vessel Owners) and the Ministry for the Environment. Testing was conducted on the auxiliary engine (1,000 bhp) supplying electric power for the onboard freezing plant. The results of the test showed no fuel savings at 20% load but after that steadily increased to 2.6% at 43% load.

Calculations showed that at 64% load there was a fuel saving of 5.2%. Two methods were used to confirm the savings. The first method was to take measurements whilst at sea and the second method was load testing at the dock. Comparing both methods confirmed similar trends in fuel savings. There was also a reduction in NOx and CO emissions confirming the improved combustion”.

Note; Prof. Mort Fels at the Technical University of Nova Scotia confirmed these results. He reported “The fuel consumption in the period with the device was significantly lower by 6% than in the period without the device”.

MG Enthusiast Magazine

“Carbonflo has come clean with flying colours and delivered more miles-per-gallon … Town fuel consumption has improved from 24 to 30 mpg … This marvelous result goes hand in hand with the almost unheard of for this type of car hydro carbon reading of zero.”

Stena Sealink, Technical Support Manager

“Eighteen months of testing have shown a reduced fuel consumption of approximately 6% with no adverse effects. Carbon fouling reduction of
internal components were noted in line with expectations. Due to decreased carbon deposits and turbocharger fouling an increase in turbocharger performance was found … also noted a reduction in smoke emissions”

Practical Classics Magazine

“Improved performance and economy … piston friction is also reduced, making the engine even more efficient … A ‘fit and forget’ treatment that will last the vehicle’s lifetime … Because Carbonflo acts as a catalyst (i.e. aids the fuel’s burning), for all practical purposes it has exactly the same effect as raising the octane rating” … “The ideal answer to classic car owners’ prayers”

Dr Jeremy Pearce, International Tin Research Institute Technology Team Leader

“Tin alloy fuel catalysts save fuel and cut pollution … latest tests confirm that it is time for tin catalyst fuel technology to be taken more seriously by engine manufacturers, governments and the scientific community” ……

US Geological Survey

“Recent results indicate that tin could be used as a tool to reduce
greenhouse gas emissions and extend fuel efficiency in cars. Tin alloy pellets were used in the fuel system of vehicles as a catalyst for fuel combustion. The Malaysia Smelting Corporation conducted an experiment using gas and diesel engines, and both types had fuel savings ranging from 4-7%. While emissions of greenhouse gases were reduced by 30-60%”.

Peter Williams, Manager, New Zealand Marine Turbochargers

“We had recurring problems with the 350kw Yanmar alternators on the vessel carboning up the exhaust and inlet ports. When the load conditions changed the loose carbon particles would block the turbo-blower nozzle ring.
At the end of the fishing season this vessel carries a full freezer load of fish up to Japan. The alternators are running at near full load. On the return trip to N.Z. the load is minimal and this causes the engines to excessively carbon up.
Each season the engines and the turbo-blowers had to be dismantled and decarbonised. We had installed both air and turbine side washing without success.

The vessel has now completed its first season with Carbonflo units fitted to the auxilliaries. the vessels’ engineers have removed both the inlet and exhaust manifolds to find them free of carbon build-up.

The engineers are delighted, and this will save them a considerable amount of work…”
