BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0001] 1. Field of the Invention

[0002] The invention relates to the field of gas generation; specifically to a device and method for heterodyning or impacting two radio frequencies, one higher than the other, against a water surface to free its hydrogen and oxygen components.

[0003] 2. Description of Related Art

[0004] Electrolysis provides pure hydrogen by immersing two electrified probes in a prepared brine of sodium hydroxide and water. One electrode of nickel-plated iron is paired with one iron electrode. When current is passed, the water decomposes as bubbles of hydrogen gas leave the cathode and oxygen bubbles leave the anode. A significant disadvantage of electrolysis is that caustic soda brine is not environmentally friendly. In contrast, the present invention provides a process that does not leave residue or fumes. It is also clean, odorless, and is conducted without noise, whereby.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0005] The present invention process begins with two radio frequencies, one lower and one higher, which are generated by a shielded and grounded electronic chassis. This energy is carried by shielded cables to an enclosure, which is also shielded and grounded. The enclosure receives a regulated supply of filtered water. The two radio frequencies heterodyne and impinge on the surface of the water in the lower portion of the container. This disturbance fractures the water into its components of hydrogen and oxygen. As an option, a water spray may be added to increase the available water surface and resulting gas volume.

[0006] The gases are collected through the container top to which a manifold is connected that separates the hydrogen and oxygen. Oxygen is sixteen times heavier than hydrogen, which facilitates the gas separation. Either salt water or fresh water may be used in the enclosure. The present invention process does not leave a residue or fumes. It is clean and odorless, and is conducted without noise. Uses of the present invention are many; such as but not limited to, fuel cell electric power generators, the fuel cell car, improved combustion in the carbureting of fuel in gasoline and diesel engines, and to increased miles per gallon fuel consumption in gasoline and diesel engines.

ITEM DESCRIPTION

[0012] 1A SHIELDED CONTAINER WITH METALLIC GASKET. (SCREEN SHIELDING ON INSIDE OF TOP, BOTTOM & SIDES IS GROUNDED AND PREFERABLY MADE OF BRONZE.) [0013] 2A LOW FREQUENCY ANTENNA (A MINIMUM OF ONE IS REQUIRED) [0014] 3A HIGH FREQUENCY ANTENNA (A MINIMUM OF ONE IS REQUIRED) [0015] 4A TOP COVER LATCHES [0016] 5A PLASTIC TUBE FOR WATER SPRAY CURTAIN [0017] 6A WATER LEVEL CONTROL [0018] 7A TOP, BOTTOM, & SIDE SCREEN ENCLOSURE [0019] 8B TOP COVER [0020] 8B-1 CENTER COVER [0021] 9B BASE [0022] 10B ELECTRONICS CHASSIS WITH CONTROL PANEL. [0023] 11B WATER SUPPLY, HEATER, & PUMP [0024] 12B SHIELDED COAXIAL CABLE INPUTS [0025] 13B MANIFOLD [0026] 14B HYDROGEN OUTLET [0027] 15B OXYGEN OUTLET [0028] 16B INPUT TO POWER SUPPLY 120V AC, 60 HZ OR 12V DC [0029] 17B POWER SELECTOR SWITCH, 3 POSITION: OFF, 120V 60 HZ AC, OR 12V DC WITH INDICATOR LIGHTS [0030] 18B LINE FUSES, TWO, 1-120 V AND 1-12 V [0031] 19B LOW FREQUENCY RF WATT METER [0032] 20B HIGH FREQUENCY RF WATT METER [0033] 21B GROUND WIRE [0034] 22B CONDUCTIVE GASKET

[0035] FIG. 1 shows enclosure 1A having a hollow interior space. Although not limited there to, enclosure 1A may be made from plastic. The use of tube 5A is optional. Although not shown it is contemplated for enclosure 1A to have a center support bracket for tube 5A, and to support antennas 2A and 3A in the approximate positions shown in FIG. 1. However, since the shape of the center support bracket is not critical and may have any configuration that effectively supports tube 5A as well as antennas 2A and 3A, the center support bracket was omitted to provide a clear view of critical components. FIG. 1 also shows a water level control 6A positioned adjacent to one side on enclosure 1A. The configuration and positioning of water level control 6A is not limited to that shown in FIG. 1, and it may comprise any size, shape, or function that when impacted by radio frequencies remains able to maintain collected water in enclosure 1A at a desired level. FIG. 1 further shows two antennae 2A and 3A, positioned near to the top of enclosure 1A. Each is connected to a different shielded coaxial cable input 12B. FIG. 1 shows enclosure 1A having screen 7A on its side and bottom surfaces to block radio frequencies and redirect them back within enclosure 1A. Although not shown in FIG. 1, FIG. 2 shows the top surface of screen 7A being connected to ground wire 21B. In the most preferred embodiment of enclosure 1A, the top surface of screen 7A is positioned above high frequency antenna 3A and low frequency antenna 2A. FIG. 1 shows enclosure 1A being substantially cylindrical. However, the configuration of enclosure 1A is not critical and not limited to that shown. Also, although the positioning of high frequency antenna 3A, water delivery tube 5A, and low frequency antenna 2A shown in FIG. 1 is preferred, it is not critical.

[0036] FIG. 2 shows enclosure 1A positioned upon a rigid base 9B and connected to a top cover 8B and center cover 8B-1, which are both gasketed with conductive gasket 22B. FIG. 2 also shows one end of a manifold 13B communicating with the top end of top cover 8B. Extending from the opposing end of manifold 13B, FIG. 2 shows hydrogen carrying conduit 14B and an oxygen carrying conduit 15B. The hydrogen carrying conduit 14B is positioned above oxygen carrying conduit 15B to facilitate gas separation, since hydrogen is lighter in weight than oxygen. Latches 4A securely connect top cover 8B and center cover 8B-1 to the upper end of enclosure 1A with center cover 8B-1 being positioned between top cover 8B and enclosure 1A. However, the use of latches 4A are not critical to the present invention, and any fastening device that is secure in its connection and not easily opened by casual or inadvertent contact is contemplated for use in the present invention to secure top cover 8B, center cover 8B-1, and enclosure 1A. In addition, FIG. 2 shows screen 7A connected between top cover 8B and enclosure 1A. Adjacent to enclosure 1A and also supported by base 9B, FIG. 2 shows a reservoir, and pump 11B with optional heater and its connected pipe or tube (not separately numbered) that extends through the side of enclosure 1A. Although it is contemplated for the saltwater or fresh water entering enclosure 1A to be filtered, and perhaps temperature controlled, the individual filtering apparatus would be of common design and is not shown. No heating unit is shown for the same reason. The size, configuration, and positioning of reservoir and pump 11B, and its connected pipe or tube, may be different than that shown in FIG. 1 as long as it is able to deliver the amount of water required by enclosure 1A for hydrogen and oxygen generation. Above reservoir 11B, FIG. 2 shows an electronics chassis with control panel 10B. Although not shown, it is contemplated for electronics chassis 10B to be shielded and grounded. Several shielded coaxial cables 12B extend between electronics chassis 10B and enclosure 1A, and a power cord and plug 16B extends downward from electronics chassis 10B for connection to a remote power source or municipal power supply. FIG. 2 shows the control panel on electronics chassis 10B having a selector switch 17B moveable between "ON" and "OFF" positions, with indicator lights to show the type of power source being utilized, either 120V/60 HZ AC or 12V DC. Two line fuses 18B protect circuits from overload. In addition, FIG. 2 shows the control panel on electronics chassis 10B having one low frequency RF watt meter identified as 19B and one high frequency RF watt meter identified as 20B, which are used to monitor the antenna loading in shielded enclosure 1A. The relative positioning on the control panel of electronics chassis 10B is not critical for selector switch 17B, line fuses 18B, low frequency RF watt meter 19B, and high frequency RF watt meter 20B. Also, the size and configuration of electronics chassis with control panel 10B, as well as switch 17B, fuses 18B, and meters 19B and 20B, may be different than that shown in FIG. 2, as long as each is able to fulfill its required function.

[0037] FIG. 3 shows the circuit required for successful function of the most preferred embodiment of the present invention. As shown in FIG. 3, it is contemplated for a power supply to provide energy for components within electronics chassis 10B. A crystal oscillator is used within electronics chassis 10B to create radio frequencies. A frequency doubler, followed by a frequency tripler, are then used to enhance the signal, which thereafter is split into two components. The low frequency component is directed to an amplifier, and then through low frequency RF watt meter 19B, after which a shielded coaxial cable 12B transmits the low frequency radio frequencies to low frequency antenna 2A within center cover 8B-1 for impinging on water within enclosure 1A. The high frequency component is directed to a second frequency doubler, followed by a second frequency tripler and an amplifier, and then through high frequency RF watt meter 20B, after which a shielded coaxial cable 12B transmits the high frequency radio frequencies to high frequency antenna 3A within enclosure 1A for impinging on water within enclosure 1A. It is the disturbance of the two different radio frequencies on the surface of the water that causes the water to be fractured into it hydrogen gas and oxygen in a clean, odorless, and silent operation.
