English Abstract



A device for optimizing hydrocarbon combustion has at least
one dipole antenna comprising first and second wires
extending in opposite directions. At least one power
source can supply the wires with voltages which are
intermittent, alternating and sinusoidal, said voltages
being between 2,000 V to 100,000 V and having frequencies
between 30 KHz and 1 MHz. The voltage in the second wire
is opposite and balanced to the voltage in the first wire.
When the dipole antenna is placed parallel and in close
proximity to a hydrocarbon supply, an electromagnetic field
acts on the hydrocarbon to enhance combustion of the
hydrocarbon. An apparatus including the device and a
method of using the device to optimize hydrocarbon
combustion are also provided.


French Abstract

Un dispositif pour optimiser la combustion d'hydrocarbures a au moins une antenne trombone composée d'un premier et d'un deuxième fil en extension dans des directions opposées. Au moins une source d'alimentation peut alimenter les fils avec des tensions intermittentes, alternantes et sinusoïdales, où les tensions varient de 2 000 V à 100 000 V et ont des fréquences entre 30 kHz et 1 MHz. La tension dans le deuxième fil est opposée et contrebalance la tension dans le premier fil. Lorsque l'antenne trombone est placée de manière parallèle et à proximité d'une alimentation en hydrocarbures, un champ électromagnétique agit sur les hydrocarbures pour augmenter leur combustion. Un appareil incluant le dispositif et une méthode pour optimiser la combustion des hydrocarbures sont aussi fournis.
