"Here is the testimony of a scientific" neophyte "about the" Pantone engine "(testimony of the forum of utura science). For having studied the process fairly well, and after having visited Mr. Pantone, I must say that I share some of these (but not all) remarks and especially that: 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 ...
Contrary to this reasoning to believe that powerful industrial groups do not defend their interests would be of pure naiveté "

Water Engine and Pantonite ..
In order to make your engine totally eco-friendly and more economical it is enough to apply a very simple approach. To add to it a device called "Pantone reactor". Some elbows of hardware, a can to put water, make bulle the whole add a magnetic core and the trick is played. The engine thus "retrofitted" in addition to producing a driving force, sanitized the ambient air by releasing a gaseous mixture resembling the purest air with a spring odor in addition, it also emits water vapor which is unsuitable for feeding infants and once the process is stabilized, even soiled water from skeptic tanks can be used 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 proved 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 motors being characterized by Qa / Qc, ie "quantity of air" over "quantity of heat", if more air enters while maintaining the amount of heat, 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 reduction in the working volume causes a change in the displacement of the engine which can be assimilated to supercharging. This change displaces the ignition point making the mixture more explosive, it is recommended then the addition of volatile compounds which will absorb an overflow of calories during their gas phase delaying the reaction. It 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 petrol engine the mechanical stresses tend towards premature wear of the engine, assembly. In conclusion, it is normal and modelable 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 Paul Pantone, he presents himself as the great savior of mankind, and, unable to develop a technique that he discovered how it is unclear, filed a patent and then freely communicated the principle on the web. So, if someone draws the chestnuts out of the fire, he can palpate the dollars, without having to get tired or invest. Meanwhile, he scam pigeons, selling them "plans", intended to transform their automobile, to roll with tap water. For 1500 dollars, his bogus company "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 ...).
The Quant'Homme site, which contains the work of Mr DAVID, is intended as a non-exhaustive collection of "exotic" ideas. It is nice to read, especially if one liked the tales of Grimm in his youth; It is a pity, because it discredits the serious work of Messrs 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.
