(NewsUSA) – Technologies developed for certain functions have
often proved useful in other applications. For instance, a top-secret material developed for the
military now makes lighter fly fishing rods, and super glue was the by-product of a man trying to
develop clear plastic for gunsights. Now, a device developed to help lung patients might enter
Ingen Technologies, Inc., an emerging manufacturer of various types of gas flow
meters, developed its Oxyview Flow Meter to help patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary
disease (COPD), a progressive disease that makes it harder to breath. Patients who use oxygen tanks
often set up their flow lines incorrectly, compromising their ability to get accurate readings. But
with the Oxyview flow meter, patients could see exactly how much oxygen they have received.
Car engines using Electric Fuel Injection Enhancers (EFIE), components that create hydrogen
to make gas engines more efficient, also use oxygen meters. Recently, several automotive companies
that manufacture EFIEs that work with on-board hydrogen generators, sometimes called "HHO boosters"
or "electrolyzers," contacted Ingen about using the Oxyview meter in automobile engines.
"The Oxyview flow meter has been tested by FuelSaver-MPG, Inc. and works well as a
complement to their EFIE and HHO boosters," stated Scott Sand, Ingen Technologies, Inc.'s CEO and
The physics of the improved combustion and exhaust process are complex, but the
simple truth is that, with a hydrogen booster properly installed, drivers use less gas to go the
same distance in the same time.
When a hydrogen booster is properly attached to a conventional gasoline or diesel engine, the
introduction of small amounts of hydrogen gas causes the combustion inside the cylinders to be
greatly improved. This improved fuel burn results in greater power applied to the downward stroke
of the piston. More power from the engine means that the driver needs to use less throttle to
maintain speed in normal operating conditions. Less throttle means less fuel consumed.
