Water engine: the facts and results on the water injection engine: explanations on the effects of water injection systems in thermal engines by Christophe Martz, ENSAIS engineer 2001 January 2008

This article is about a summary page of doping to the water via a Gillier-Pantone system.

It was written by Christophe Martz 2007 in May on the occasion of the Press conference of Vitry sur Orne, Proofreading January 2008.

This explains why some ideas on this page were included in certain sections of press review of Vitry.

The Gillier Pantone water doping: state of the art

Several hundred modified industrial engines in France, mostly agricultural tractor engines. Variable results up to 60% reduction in consumption!

Dozens of examples are available on the following pages: water doping achievements Gillier Pantone

Including this page with 8 precisely encrypted results.

Examples: water doping on a recent Turbo Diesel tractor.


Dozens of articles have been written about the water injection process. We grouped together on the forum the ones we were able to recover: Gillier magazine-pantone press.

Of these, here are three particularly interesting ones.

Water injection in thermal engines: past and present applications

Small history of water injection in diesel engines

The technique is far from recent, see the work of the French engineer Clerget from 1901 already possible to improve the performance of diesel engines.

Thus, from 1901, Clerget discovered the virtues of water injection in the diesel on high compression engines (rate at 19 1). Vernet on his drum, the power to pass 14 30 ch when injected water with diesel and thermique2 yield surged forward as spectacular.

It was not until February 1901 the Vernet engine patent was filed (No. 308.376) with the following claims: The principle of decomposition of oxygen in water and hydrogen combustion with heavy oil in the presence of the elements splitting compounds fuels; increased action by additional oxidants or from substances capable of supplying oxygen by decomposition; addition of auxiliary fluids both oxidizers and fuels.

Use of aviation water injection, Formula 1 and Rally

1942 when used in military aviation, then the formula for 1 80 years and even now in some competition in Rally, it aims to:

- Cool the turbo inlet gas and thus increase the fill rate and the specific power (power relative to the cylinder capacity fixed by the regulations).
- Restrict self detonation (source cliquetit and motor deterioration) by increasing "artificially" octane
- Cool the internal parts and allow to increase the motor overload for some time.

Water-fuel emulsion: ELF's Aquazole fuel

Emulsion (more or less) stabilized (active voltage) water-diesel allowing during its use, the reduction of Nox, CO and unburned (HC and smoke ...).

There is, by measurements on standard cycles (...) for an EEG compared with diesel fuel used in the formulation of the EEG:

- A reduction in NOx emissions to 15 30%
- A reduction of smoke and soot to 30 80%
- A reduction in particulate emissions of 10 80% to

Compared to the "diesel" base, there is a slight tendency to reduce the energy consumption of approximately 2%, which can be explained by a more complete combustion of hydrocarbons in the presence of water and thus leading to a slight improvement in yield.

- Elf the aquazole
- Composition and evolution of species emitted particulate exhaust of a diesel engine according to the engine parameters and the nature of the fuel (Including the water injection).

Conclusion on the injection of water into the engines

Under certain conditions, inflows of water in an engine are widely proven. It remains to understand what the physico-chemical mechanisms that may come into play in the case of a water doping via Pantone reactor since, if water can promote combustion, it is and will never be a fuel in its H2O form, since it is the ash from the combustion of hydrogen!

The question is what happens, then, to get such good results!

This is the subject of the next article titled: synthesis of theses and hypotheses on the injection of water into engines
