Amd Tuning Join The Carbon Clean Network

AmDTuning have recently joined the Carbon Clean Network as a Carbon Clean Centre Plus. A CCCP site is able to offer both our industry-leading HHO-based carbon cleaning service and our revolutionary DPF-cleaning service to customers, and this is something AmDTuning are now able to offer at their base in Thurrock, Essex thanks to the recent purchase of both a CC-16 carbon cleaning machine and a DCS-16 DPF cleaning machine.

This video shows AmDTuning’s British Touring Car Championship technicians being introduced to both the CC-16 and the DCS-16 machines after delivery and undergoing on-site training from a member of the Carbon Clean Ltd team.

Later, AmDTuning’s Team Principal Shaun Hollamby explains why both Carbon Clean solutions made sense for the busy performance tuning garage on a financial level and he explains how he, as a skeptical racing driver and business owner, was convinced by the results both machines have achieved in the workshop on his own customer’s cars and the extra income potential too.  Welcome AmDTuning to the Carbon Clean family!

How Safe Is Hho For Cleaning Your Engine?

HHO engine cleaning is a relatively new concept derived from an old scientific process. The method of splitting of water into its component atoms through electrolysis has been around for over 200 years at least.

Dutch scientist Martinus van Marus was the first recorded to split water in this manner back in 1776 and was also the first to discover the mixture could be ignited with a spark. This was perhaps discovered by accident but the combustible nature of HHO was recognised from the very beginning.

Since then the experiment has been a staple of school science lessons. A combustible gas made from water had, and still has, many scientists scratching their heads to find a viable use for a gas that comes from such a plentiful substance and burns with no harmful emissions. History is scattered with examples of HHO applications that range from the successful to the ridiculous. The list includes theatre lighting, cutting torches, welding torches, blowpipes and even as a fuel for cars, although this notion was disproved as a viable concept given the amount of energy required to create the HHO in the first place.

However it was during such tests, while Canadian scientists were looking for a clean fuel standard and running a combustion engine on oxyhydrogen, that the decarbonising properties of HHO were noticed. Following the tests the engines were coming out cleaner than they were before and although the holy grail of an emission free fuel was not achieved a new use for the gas was discovered. This was set to shake up engine cleaning practice in garages around the world. Options before HHO would include stripping the engine and manually cleaning each part (both time consuming and expensive) or introducing chemical cleaning agents to the engine which have been shown to leave residue in the engine that gets expelled as toxic gas. A number of chemicals have been banned for just this reason with vehicles producing extremely harmful emissions following a cleaning treatment. The beauty of using HHO is that it can be fed directly into the carbonised parts of the engine through the air intake without any need to strip the engine and when it combusts it ALL combusts leaving no trace elements and producing no extra emissions. Plus the fact that it is made of water costing the garage next to nothing and requiring no special haz chem handling and storage compliances.

Any new technology that challenges an established (and very profitable) business model is bound to attract some slings and arrows as the old guard try to disprove its effectiveness and cast doubt on its safety. I’ve rounded up a few of these here –

Hydrogen Embrittlement.

‘If you put hydrogen into your engine it will cause the metals to become brittle and crack.’

Hydrogen Embrittlement occurs mostly in heat toughened steel and aluminium alloys where either external hydrogen diffuses into the metal through the surface to combine with hydrogen already present inside it or it occurs when the metal is in a molten state and cools in a hydrogen rich environment and becomes supersaturated with the gas. This leads to pockets of pressurised hydrogen that can lead to the metal cracking. The cylinder block, pistons and most other parts of the combustion chambers in an engine are made from either toughened steel or cast aluminium alloy so at first glance this statement makes the prospect of pumping a load of HHO into your engine seem a little crazy. However there are mitigating factors here and rigorous scientific tests we can look at where regular combustion engines have been run exclusively on hydrogen that show up the statement against HHO engine cleaning as tenuous scaremongering.  The primary factor here is amount of hydrogen and period of exposure. In the report ‘Findings of Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine Durability’ (presented by Garrett P. Beauregard of the Electric Transportation Engineering Corporation in Arizona, 2011) an experiment was set up to analyse the effects of hydrogen on the regular combustion engine. Data was collected from an engine operated on a dynamometer running for 1000hrs and from a fleet of 8 full-size pickup trucks powered with Hydrogen fuelled engines. The engine ran with no failures and following the engine disassembly all the components were in exceptionally good condition. Following a three year operating period the truck engines were also dismantled and showed little sign of wear or stress. On average a 2ltr engine would take around ½ an hour to clean using HHO which is mixed with air and fuel and not burnt as a primary fuel. So even conducting 2000 carbon cleans, back to back, with the highest gas flow would not compare to 1000hrs of running an engine using only hydrogen as the fuel. This places a HHO engine clean in pretty much 100% safe territory from the risks of hydrogen embrittlement. You can read the whole report here –

Too much HHO could melt your

Some companies sell HHO machines that produce a constant but pitiful flow of HHO gas but attempt to turn that negative into a positive by telling you it is down to safety concerns rather than their machine being inefficient. One such company claimed that it could raise the temperature of your catalytic converter high enough to melt it so their machines produce just enough gas to raise the temperature of the cat to 450°C. This is so far wrong I’m amazed, here’s how – The cat starts to function at 204 – 315°C, the normal running temperature for a cat is 648 – 871°C and the danger temperature is 1093°C and up. 1093°C being the temperature the aluminium oxide honeycomb would begin to degrade and weaken, the platinum and palladium coating would melt and sink into the ceramic substrate. So with 550°C still to play with that is one very safe machine although it could take you the best part of a day to clean a single engine.

Our machines regulate the flow of HHO depending on the displacement of the engine so there will never be a dangerous saturation of the gas that could lead to any damage to the engine. The optimum gas flow ensures this whilst also maintaining an efficient amount of gas is produced for a speedy clean.

So how safe is HHO for cleaning your engine? Very safe. The safest method by far with no chemical trace elements left behind, no carbon clogging damaging the exhaust system and no chance of human error when dismantling and rebuilding the engine block. It is also the quickest, most cost effective and the most environmentally sound solution.

Excellent Demonstration Results: Vauxhall Vectra Diesel

Excellent Demonstration result from Carbon Clean Ltd as expected.

Vauxhall Vectra Diesel, this vehicle would have failed the MOT with the new regulations registering 1.90 on a smoke test but after a 40 minute Carbon Clean is was reduced right down to 1.26. Proving that our machines are going to save customers a huge amount of money on repair bills and stop some vehicles potentially being written off. Also offering an excellent revenue stream for any workshop.

Showing the excellent consistency of our results we also reduced the smoke emission from a VW Bora Diesel from 1.49 to 1.11 on the same demonstration with the customer being more than impressed and looking at joining the Carbon Clean revolution.

Huge Mot Changes Announced By DVSA. Is Your Workshop Prepared?

The MoT test is set for a major shake up on the 20th of May this year, its largest and most significant in quite some time. From this date, MoT test faults will be classified as Minor, Major and Dangerous – with both Major and Dangerous faults being an automatic fail. Cars with Minor faults will still pass the test – as cars with advisories did previously – and these will be documented both on the vehicle’s MoT certificate and online record.

The second of these major changes – and perhaps the one that will affect the average motorist the most – is that diesel vehicles will now have to meet strict new rules to pass their MoT. As of 20th of May, any vehicle fitted with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) that emits ‘visible smoke of any color’ will automatically fail the MoT. Diesel vehicles without a DPF (generally manufactured prior to 2006) will not be subject to the same emissions test.

Furthermore, MoT testers will now be instructed to inspect the DPFs themselves. If a car has a DPF that has been ‘clearly cut and re-welded’ then the tester must refuse to test it, unless the vehicle’s owner can ‘prove it was done for legitimate reasons such as filter cleaning’. This is different to the out-going rules that stipulated that a car would only be rejected from the test if the DPF was clearly missing. After May 20th, if a car has had its DPF removed for performance or any other reasonthen its owner could be subjected to a £1000 fine or more.

Over the last decade many motorists have purchased a diesel vehicle fitted with a DPF, unaware of the potential problems that can occur if the DPF is not able to function correctly, for example if the motorist does a lot of stop-start driving and only uses the vehicle for short journeys thus not giving the DPF system a chance to regenerate as intended. This can lead to a drop invehicle performance, economy and ultimately, reliability too.

Dry Cell VS Electrolytic Tank HHO Generation For Engine Cleaning

The more you look into the CC-16 the better it gets!

In the world of hydrogen-based engine cleaning, there are certain catch words that should make you think twice about a product. Increasingly ‘dry cell’ is just such a term.  A dry cell hydrogen generator kit can be picked up online for around £200 and run off a 12v supply. These generators are generally used as fuel additive generators within the engine. Because of their small size and low voltage, they fit well under the hood and run off the battery. Needless to say as a solution for engine carbon cleaning they are ineffective, unreliable and have been known to cause damage to some engines. It is wise to remember how highly combustible HHO gas is and the importance of safeguards to make sure the gas is only being burnt where you want it to be burnt and not filling up your workshop. Flow regulation is a key factor in safely burning HHO in the engine. Too much gas being sent into the combustion chambers can cause temperatures of 3300, hot enough to risk piercing a piston head or warping valves. Not enough gas and you could be waiting a few days to clean one engine.

Still, there are some companies out there who have been buying up just such kits, putting them in a metal box and charging upwards of £1000 for their product. We find it a great shame that such progressive technology is being treated in this way with possibly catastrophic results. If you are looking to embrace HHO cleaning in your workshop it is wise to get as many details as you can about the contents of the machine you are about to invest in.

This is not to say that all dry cell generators are a bad thing. They are a solid alternative to traditional wet cell generators. First, though, let’s clear up a few points – ‘Dry’ cells still require a reservoir of water to function so ‘dry’ is a little misleading. The anode and cathode elements are not fully submerged but are set up as a series of alternating plates separated by a none conductive material (usually neoprene) and the water is fed through holes in each plate. The water is then cycled back into the reservoir carrying the gas with it which escapes through the top of the reservoir.

Not submerging the entire anode/ cathode in the water tank (as an electrolytic tank cell does) is done to increase efficiency in the belief that much of the electric current would pass through the edge of the plate and be wasted in terms of HHO production. This is not particularly true. In fact, wet cells charge the water around them turning the cell into a capacitor or power reservoir. The extra voltage therein is used to boost HHO generation and gives the user more flexibility to control the excess power and amount of HHO produced at any given time. This is very useful when producing HHO for cleaning engines of varying sizes but not so much for producing a set amount as a fuel additive. So we can conclude that a dry cell may be the best option under the hood of your car but the electrolytic tank is the best and most flexible solution for HHO engine cleaning.

The smaller units running from 12v would struggle to produce enough current (generally running just under 1KW) to split the volume of water needed to produce the gasses required to efficiently clean an engine. Under normal conditions (1 atmosphere of pressure and 1 mole per liter of H+ ions) you need 1.23v to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. Since Power = Current x Voltage we can get the current by dividing power by voltage. 1000W / 1.23V = 813amps. Running for one hour (813amps x 3600seconds) we get 2.93 million coulombs of charge. One mole of electrons has a charge of 96,500 coulombs. If we divide the machine’s charge by the charge of the electrons this gives us around 30 moles of electrons flowing per hour. For a water molecule to split 2 electrons have to flow meaning 30 moles of electrons would split 15 moles of water into 15 moles of hydrogen and 7.5 moles of oxygen equating to 350 liters of hydrogen and 175 liters of oxygen. With this amount of HHO being produced it would take upwards of 2 hours to clean a 2-liter engine.

The CC16 runs at 4KW, therefore, producing 4 times as much HHO giving it the ability to clean a 2-liter engine in just half an hour. With 9 electrolytic tank cells, each individually monitored and controlled by the onboard PCU, the current is kept constant as is the flow rate of the machine. Even if a cell stops working for any reason this would be picked up automatically and power would be redistributed to the other cells. This is impossible to achieve with current dry cell technology; with a single cell when it breaks down it will completely stop working.

The CC16 can be programmed to produce the required amount of HHO defined by entering the engine displacement at the start of the service. Even if one of the cells, where to stop working more power, would be displaced to the other cells maintaining a constant production of HHO at the required level. The dry cell machines have a single constant flow without the option to regulate volume. In most cases, this is a mere trickle of gas but some cases have been found to produce far too much in a single draw leading to engine damage.

The CC16 features a charge activated shutdown connected to the vehicle’s battery. This safeguard monitors the different charge coming from the battery when the engine is running or stopped. Should the engine stop running during the clean the HHO would not combust in the engine. The CC16 would notice and stop producing HHO gas which could escape and cause a hazard. Other safety features like flashback valves, water level, and heat monitors have been incorporated into the CC16, during our development of the machine, but are seldom seen on the dry cell units which scarcely even feature a PCU.

We are confident in saying that that the CC16 is the best HHO cleaning solution in the world when compared in terms of efficiency, safety, longevity, and ease of use.
