It turns out that Element Saver, hereinafter referred to as ES system, can be used to achieve better burning / burning of straw, wood chips, wood pellets and other organic material.
Based on practical experience, we know that with the EC system, more complete combustion can be achieved and hence cleaner smoke and soot-free furnace and slag. Moreover, the smoke does not appear to contain NOx, and if so, to a much lesser extent.
We believe this is due to several different factors.
Keel prepared from relatively fresh wood may tend to 'survive' by accumulating appropriate plant hormones into the strategic growth sites in the roots and leaves, while protecting substances in the tissue through the use of substances that slow digestion, which the plant will later use to create roots and leaves. All in all, the chips have a number of protective properties that prevent combustion.
Treating the wood chips with the aid of the EC in an additional device or presumed improved its combustion.
Although straw may seem to burn well, its structure of cellulose, lignin and various salts has some of its flame retardant properties.
A few hours of straw treatment with EA before ignition leads to a more complete burning.
Calculation of combustion energy is:
The PP system can be used in two obvious cases:
We have a really good experience in treating the intake air with PP. Usually, fuel consumption is reduced by 14−21%, but the results are not clear.
We must admit that this area is somewhat complicated. In fuel treatment, we observed significant savings in diesel consumption. First, EC treatment appears to have a negative effect on the ignition of the fuel (diesel) or on the "Cetane number". Up to 20% less power consumption.
This is probably related to the antioxidant effect of the EC, where it is believed that it could affect the ignitability of both diesel and petrol (not calorific value).
In the case of diesel fuel treatment with ES, it is necessary to set the engine fuel system to reduced ignition (by adjusting the fuel injection timing, or in the case of petrol, ignition).
Intake air to the engine
The air intake to the engine should be treated with ES to ensure the best use of oxygen during combustion and clean and more complete fuel use.
Sufficient oxygen will ensure delayed ignition and much cleaner flue gas.
If the treatment is performed correctly, fuel consumption should decrease by at least 14% at the same energy input.
