"This is the testimony of a" neophyte "scientific about" Pantone engine "(testimony Forum utura science). For quite well studied process and having visited Mr Pantone, I must say that I share some of these remarks (but not all) and especially this: the situation is too critical to give credit to charlatants claiming things that are not able simply to prove!
Néamoins if Mr Pantone can be described as dishonest (about it: avoid going to see as I do, you will not lose your money, décallage between man and his website is obvious) it does nonetheless it allowed indirectly through montages on Diesel tractors and the idea of Mr David, to demonstrate the effectiveness of water injection in internal combustion engines (see our experience ZX Turbo Diesel ). Likewise the idea of recovering losses in the exhaust to precondition fuel or mixture looks good but very far from being mastered (see engineering study on the Pantone process ) ... I guess the main problem is not technical but human-econo ...
In contrast to this reasoning to believe that powerful industrial groups do not defend their intêrets would be pure naivety "

Water Engine and Pantonite ..
To make your engine completely ecological and economical simply apply a very simple approach. Him attach a device called "Pantone reactor." Some elbows hardware, a can to bring water to bubble all add a magnetic core and voila. The engine and "retrofitted" in addition to producing a driving force, cleaned the air by rejecting a gas mixture resembling the purest air with a smell spring in addition, it also emits water vapor that pure little suit infant feeding and once the process is stabilized can even put dirty water from septic tanks to maintain the reaction while reducing the proportion of fossil fuel to infinitesimal dissolutions.
The preceding paragraph is only the synthesis of design published by Quanthomme. Rewritten in this way doubt assails us
Water and heat engines ... For a long time water has proven useful in so-called "internal combustion" engines, as opposed to "external combustion" engines such as steam engines. Water is also omnipresent. Any engineer who approaches these engines discovers the Carnot diagram, which explains the enthalpy of the transformations within it. The efficiency of all these engines being characterized by Qa / Qc, ie "quantity of air" on "quantity of heat", if more air enters while the quantity of heat is maintained, the efficiency increases. The water vapor is then very interesting, its thermal inertia is mechanical is greater than the air and the combustible gas mixture. The cylinder will fill substantially more while the combustion will be more controlled. Finally, the temperature of the combustion chamber "piston, cylinder head" being close to the 500 ° after the exhaust phase the water will allow a better cooling of the whole, type water-water exchanger. Performance gain observations of the order of 10 to 15% are regularly observed. The issue of long-term water supply stems from its advantages. Cold this steam so much to be condensed in the cylinder block condensing by the same the detonating mixture. At high speed, when the outside environment is cold, frost forms in carburizing venturis. These problems are easily modelable, given that PV = nRT, n and R being constants of a given gaseous fluid, while P, V and T represent pressure, volume and temperature, respectively. The physical inertia of water vapor tends to reduce the effective volume of the cylinder by mass effect. This decrease in the working volume causes a change in engine displacement which can be assimilated to supercharging. This change displaces the ignition point making the mixture more detrimental, it is then recommended the addition of volatile compounds which will absorb an overflow of calories during their gas phase delaying the reaction. This is mainly methanol. Finally, and even more so on diesel engines, the water both oxidizes the combustion chamber on the one hand and the exhaust assembly on the other hand, while on a gasoline engine the mechanical stresses tend towards premature wear of the engine, Mobile assembly. In conclusion, it is normal and possible to model a gain in efficiency when adding water or steam to a heat engine.
From this point it is easy to create with a little trick a device that will appear revolutionary for the neophyte, increasing the efficiency of an engine with water. The trick consisting in maquiller- in English we say "obfuscate" - the operation the eyes of the dandy. Let's start with to it a magnetic core without explaining the role. Magnetism is always tinged with a certain magic in the minds of most people, it is one of the few forces that we are confronted with is observed that the resultant. Then pretend that we do not know exactly why or how but that the model can only be explained if the breaking of the water molecule that occurs and that everyone knows is only composed of oxygen and hydrogen, the two combined for an optimal combustion. Be surrounded by a verbiage of a scientific but accessible enough. Let the gurus of all hair coat all - calculating the odds pendulum alchemical practice, ether theory, new chemical element - the pantonium-, multi-pole magnet ... You just have to SELL not industrialized devices but files allowing everyone to realize oneself the device. If that purchased you get there you are of those elected, otherwise we will offer you SUBSCRIBE to a letter describing as possible variants.
Some dare experience and ultimately their engines (which are not infallible! Sic!) Break. Others seek to understand and measure the phenomenon and quickly rejected, treated unbeliever or seeking a particular solution are being encourage to completely revise their protocol. It is a sect finally, a technology sect but a cult anyway. The guru of course do not even take part in this verbiage, surrounded by a holy aura are message is relayed by lieutenants or lieutenants around him.
Why believe me, you say? I do not know. I am neither oil, nor a person of influence. Unfortunately I pay my fuel like everyone else. I try to find another approach to the problem of sustainable energy as much. I have nothing to sell is probably my best argument. Why not believe them? They SELL sensible notebooks open the door of exclusivity. For the only good of humanity then why prices varying depending on the purchasing power. Besides $ 400 for USA and $ 600 for Germany, and given the number of tons of carbon emitted into the 2 cases seems to me of the joke. Unless of course that Germany is the world power. Would it not rather because the seed of ecology is stronger there. I forgot, 20 years to develop a Pantonisateur on a VW engine, even without mathematical model seems still very slow. Mr. Diesel less time than that. The basis of the theory is based on a divine message that more 1h30 advocated his business model. All measuring instrument will disturb the reaction. Never disassemble the device, it works that's all.
I add a copy of an email from a visitor to this site:
"The inventor of this system is called Paul Pantone, it stands as the great savior of mankind, and, unable to develop a technique he discovered it is unclear how, filed a patent, and notified freely the principle on the web. So if someone pulls his chestnuts out of the fire, he can feel the dollars, without needing to tire or invest. Meanwhile, it scam pigeons, selling them his "plans", for converting their cars to run on tap water. In 1500 dollars, the company can "GEET" initiates you, and reveals his "secrets" in an "internship" in Salt Lake City.
But the system him, although experimental, exists, and its effects seem difficult to explain.
A young French engineer, Christophe Martz, wanted to get to the bottom, and, as part of his final project to study ENSAIS built a test bench for testing the Pantone system; The results bear squarely surprising decrease, yet inexplicable pollution was found. The engine even seem capable of functioning by drawing its own exhaust. Amazing is not it? It seems that the mixture introduced into the Pantone reactor turns into a gas, yet undetermined, but the very interesting properties. Mr. Martz also measured a decrease in consumption of 10%. You can find the full report at: pantone report
Another builder, Mr. DAVID, realized, and published essays on various engines. He even made a special burner, using diesel as fuel, producing intense heat, without any apparent rejection: http://quanthomme.free.fr/pantone/pagedavid/PageM_David8.htm it might be a good solution for the heating of some of our locos (perfect interior, for example ...).
Quant'Homme the site, which contains the works of Mr. DAVID, wants a non-exhaustive collection of ideas "exotic". It's nice to read, especially if you like the Grimm fairy tales in his youth; It's a shame, because it discredits the serious work of Mr. Martz and David.
Voila, I think right now, show that the CAV, has its level, is concerned about the environment, especially air quality, maybe not that profitable for us all; If necessary, tell me what you think.
