Radial Accelerated Cavitation and its use in Fuel Reformation 2010-01-1790

Donnelly Labs is developing a fuel reformation system and process that is versatile enough to fit on a motorcycle, or scalable enough to run any fuel cell need, an on demand system with no catalysts or slurries, requiring no more than liquid hydrocarbon fuel. We approached this task by first determining the phenomena which would be able to achieve our objective, then develop the mechanical and processes necessary to best exploit our desired results. We've developed a Radially Accelerated Fuel Unit which achieves most of our desired results. It will remove any impurities in the fuel including the sulfur, through our process. We have discovered through a precise manipulation of centrifugal force, cavitation, and pressure, we can remove the unwanted sulfur and have the fuel prepared for processing into pure hydrogen.
