How does Soltron® work?

Soltron® is a proven microbiological fuel technology.

Fossil fuel oil is a mixture of hydrocarbon compounds of various carbon chain lengths. Volatile fuels, such as petrol and diesel, have differing hydrocarbon chains.

Soltron® alters the structure of these chains, assisting oxidisation of long-chain hydrocarbons, facilitating a more complete combustion process.

The outcome? Reduced CO2, CO, HC, SOx, NOx and particulate emissions as well a greater conversion of fuel into energy, resulting in significant fuel economy.

The Combustion Process:

During the combustion process, a chemical reaction between air and fine liquid droplets takes place.  The hydrocarbon burns to produce carbon dioxide, water and a release of energy in the form of heat.

Stroke 1 – The inlet valves open drawing in both air and fuel to form the combustable mixture

Stroke 2 – The mixture is compressed

Stroke 3 – An ignition spark is introduced to start the chemical reaction, releasing potential energy as a result. This causes vapour expansion, pushing the piston downwards

Stroke 4 – The waste gas, carbon dioxide and water are ejected

In an engine cylinder, the spark that starts the chemical reaction is introduced into the centre of the cylinder. The flame should advance in an even flame front to produce a smooth retreat of the cylinder piston.

Due to the fact that liquid fuel is a mixture of hydrocarbons of different chain lengths and bond strengths, this reaction may not be uniform. Gas mixture in the furthest corners of the chamber (typically the heavier hydrogen carbon chains) can ignite a millisecond later than the initial combusion, or in some cases, not at all. The result is the formation of stable carbon compounds within the combustion chamber and the ejection of the light fractions of the waste gases in the form of volatile organic compounds.

Natural enzymes interact with and assist in altering the specific chemical bonds present in liquified fuel. Soltron’s® enzyme compound targets the C-C and the C=C chemical bonds present in hydrocarbon fuel.

Blending Soltron® with fuel assists in the combustion of the longer chains in the hydrocarbon fuel mix, increasing fuel surface area and ensuring a more complete combustion of the fuel in the combustion chamber. The outcome is a greater conversion of the fuel into heat and power, and greatly reduced CO2, CO, HC, NOX and smoke emissions.

Soltron® contains no heavy metals or biocides and is harmless to engines and other mechanical components. It eliminates harmful contaminants, improves engine efficiency and lubricity, increases fuel cetane number, reduces exhaust gas emissions and particulate matter, reduces maintenance and significantly lowers fuel costs through improved economy.
