Using a laminar airflow wing and a pair of pivoting throttle valves, a new air-fuel pre-mixing chamber promises to improve the performance of internal combustion engines and boost their fuel efficiency. The system, which mounts to the intake manifold of an engine, reportedly delivers on those promises by creating a "variable Venturi" effect, its inventors say.
The key to the system is its laminar airflow wing. During engine operation, the flow wing divides incoming air into two laminar streams. By opening the pivoting throttle valves, the system creates a siphon, or Venturi effect. The laminar air stream is therefore drawn into the air-fuel chamber with increased velocity and decreased pressure. As a result, air moves downstream of the wing and reaches the fuel injectors, and the ensuing fuel spray is atomized, causing more efficient mixing to take place.
The unit's inventor, Zero Tolerance Industries, claims that the Pinsker Electronic Fuel System, as it's known, can be easily added to conventionally-manufactured engines in automobiles, aircraft, and boats. Also, because the pivoting throttle valves enable the airflow opening to be continuously varied, the same unit can be used on small four-cylinder or big eight-cylinder engines.
The company's U.S. Patent states that fuel economy tests showed dramatic increases in gasoline engine mileage. "In some cases, the fuel mileage increase was as great as 42 percent on stock production engines and 25 to 28 percent on high-performance engines," the patent states.
