D-Carb Global has launched a new machine which promises to reduce the emissions and improve the fuel consumption of an engine.
It takes 30-60 minutes to clean an engine and can be used on up to three simultaneously, significantly reducing labour costs.
The Austrailian firm that produces the device says it it is extremely effective on diesel motors, which can quickly build up with carbon, causing black smoke, particulates and unspent fuel to spew into the atmosphere.
“Engines that are free of carbon build up deliver greater power, torque and fuel efficiency and are less likely to break down because they are not forced to work as hard,” claimed the company in a statement.
The mobile machine initiates electrolysis that creates hydrogen and oxygen vapour. The vapour is then piped through the engine via a hose attached to the air filter, effectively oxidising the carbons and pushing them out of the vehicles exhaust.
D-Carb Global CEO John Stewart said the portability and cost effectiveness and short treatment times the units allowed meant they were ideal for automotive outlets, vehicle dealerships, transport companies, mining operations, fishing fleets, public transport providers and mechanical workshops.
According to Stewart, tests and modelling at a transport company with a fleet of 100 trucks that were treated with the machine as part of regular servicing led to initial fuel savings of 7.8%.
D-Carb Global will initially target companies with high truck usage such as heavy transport, mining and agriculture.
