Enerpulse Technologies Announces Technology Advancement With Nano-Plasma Assisted Combustion
n-PAC technology helps improve fuel economy, reduce tailpipe emissions and increase vehicle performance - results unattainable by conventional spark plugs
According to Wes Helgeson, the company’s senior research engineer, “linking the 5,000,000 watt nano-pulse delivered by Enerpulse’s n-PAC™ ignition device to the underlying of plasma physics in the combustion process is a breakthrough in understanding how our technology works and its underlying science. Unlike conventional spark plugs that only ionize fuel in the spark gap, n-PAC’s high-energy electrical discharge, which includes ionic wind and photon energy, projects well into the cylinder, ionizing a significantly larger amount of the total fuel charge.”
Enerpulse’s n-PAC™ technology is the first practical and cost-effective method of capturing the well-known benefits of plasma to create consistent, faster and more efficient combustion in SIIC engines, even with lean air-fuel ratios. Its integrated parallel capacitor circuit stores energy during the ignition ionization phase and, in a nano-second pulse, automatically discharges 1,000 times the power of conventional spark plugs just prior to the spark event. n-PAC™ technology is currently packaged inside the physical envelope of a conventional spark plug, making adoption easy for current and future SIIC engine applications.
Enerpulse provides its products to the automotive/powersports aftermarket and NatGas stationary engine service market under the brand name Pulstar®. It also provides products to engine converters for vehicular NatGas fueled SIIC engines (NG, CNG, LNG, LPG, and Bio-Gas) and is working directly with several automotive OEMs in pursuit of gasoline engine platform adoption. The company has sold over a million Pulstar spark plugs into the automotive and power sports aftermarket.
