English Abstract

A device submersed into the fuel tank of motor vehicles with liquid-hydrocarbon internal-combustion engines for reducing polluting emissions and saving energy, characterized in that there are generated, in combination, magnetic fields and far infrared electromagnetic waves which spread inside the fuel and interact with the molecules of the hydrocarbons and temporarily modify their structure so that they can be easily vaporized. This temporary modification of the hydrocarbons' molecular structure is obtained by energising said molecules through the energy associated to said far infrared rays under the action of said magnetic fields.

French Abstract

Un dispositif immergé dans le réservoir de carburant de véhicules à moteur à combustion interne dhydrocarbures liquides et destiné à réduire les émissions polluantes et à économiser lénergie, se caractérise par le fait quil génère des champs magnétiques associés à des ondes électromagnétiques dinfrarouge lointain. Ces champs magnétiques et ces ondes électromagnétiques, qui se propagent dans le carburant, interagissent avec les molécules dhydrocarbures et modifient, de façon temporaire, leur structure de sorte que les molécules dhydrocarbures peuvent sévaporer facilement. On obtient cette modification temporaire de la structure moléculaire des hydrocarbures par excitation desdites molécules par lénergie associée auxdits rayonnements infrarouges lointains sous laction desdits champs magnétiques.

connection between ceramic
cotton, metal net and external perforated cylinder also guaranteeing an
electric connection
between the electric connection and copper wire (9) on which diode (10) is
4. The device of any one of claims 1 to 3, characterized in that an emissions

energy of the fuel during the running of the vehicle, and a current generated
in the device by the
ions inside a fuel.
5. The device of any one of claims 1 to 4, characterized in that an external
perforated tube (3) is
made of bronze and silver-plated, a choice of such materials having the dual
function of
preventing rust from being formed and increasing a purifying effect towards
aggressive external

is sprayed with a
ceramic composition and has the function of keeping all of an elements
contained in its interior
in a right position.
7. The device of any one of claims 1 to 6, characterized in that the cotton
sock (7) aiming at both
preventing external agents from entering the device and spreading the emitted
waves has a very
strong and unalterable weaving, and is provided with an inner layer that is
soaked with platinum
powder during a final phase of weaving.
8. The device of any one of claims 1 to 7, characterized in that a magnet

of ceramic material
are made by moulding and then baking for many hours at the temperature of
about 1200°C, such
ceramic being baked six times and then cooled by natural air.
11. The device of any one of claims 1 to 10, characterized in that said
ceramic balls (5) are made
by moulding and baking at a temperature of 500-600°C, their main
function being that of
extending the effects of ceramic sleeves (4) to the whole device.
12. The device of any one of claims 1 to 11, characterized in that the ceramic
materials used for
sleeves (4) and balls (5) mainly include SiC, TiO 2, Cr2 0 3 Al2 0 3, Fe.
13. The device of any one of claims 1 to 12, characterized in that said
sleeves (4) and said balls
(5) are made by a manufacturing method including substantially the following
- providing a mixture by: spraying liquid on the parts to be mixed;
- drying


- moulding (by compression)
- baking;
- final shaping and cleaning;
- packaging.
14. The device of any one of claims 1 to 13, characterized in that it is
placed in a fuel tank so as
to hang inside therein and is connected to a wire (1) which is provided with a
hinge member.
15. The device of any one of claims 1 to 14, characterized in that the complex
chains of carbon
and hydrogen atoms characterizing fuels such as gasoline or diesel oil are
broken by a composite
wave which is being generated, said chains being interrupted at their carbon-
carbon bonds and
hydrogen-hydrogen bonds giving rise to chains which are more suitable for a
better combustion.
