I.        INTRODUCTION

          Iraal,   Inc.,   200 South Main Street,   P.O.   Box 310,   North English,   Iowa

52316 has applied for an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of

the California Vehicle Code (VC)        for their Hydro Power Pak Model 1000C device.

The Hydro Power Pak Model 1000C device is designed for installation on all 1993

and older model—year vehicles equipped with 4, 5, 6, and 8 cylinder gasoline

fueled engines.

          Iraal,   Inc. has submitted a completed application and all the required

information.

II.       CoNCLUSION


          Based on independent laboratory emissions testing and confirmatory

testing at the Air Resources Board,        the staff concludes that the installation

of the Iraal,      Inc.‘s Hydro Power Pak Model 1000C device will not adversely

affect exhaust emissions from vehicles for which an exemption is requested.

III.      RECOMMENDATION

          The staff recommends that Iraal,     Inc. bg granted exemption as requested

and that Executive Order D—312—1 be issued for the Hydro Power Pak Model 1000C

device.

Iv.    DEVICE DESCRIPTION


          The Hydro Power Pak Model 1000C device is claimed to create and supply

hydrogen and oxygen mixed with air to the engine.            The device may be installed

on all 1993 and older model—year vehicles equipped 4,            S, 6,   and 8 cylinder

gasoline fueled engines.


       The device consists of box with a tightly fitted lid.     The Hydro Power

Pak Model 1000C is available in volumes ranging from 210 cubic inches to 1296

cubic inches.     Two electrical connections are provided on opposite sides of the

box.   On top of the lid, an air cleaner is attached which acts as the device‘s

air intake.     Holes are drilled through the lid allowing air to enter the main

chamber of the device.     In the center of the lid extending through and sealed

from the air cleanér chamber is the output tube connecting the main device

chamber with the supply hose c&nnecting to the engine air intake.

        Ingide the box and connected to the external electrical connections are

vertically oriented anode and cathode plates.     During operation, these plates

are submerged in an electrolyte solution consisting of Glacial Acetic Acid.

According to the manufacturer, an electrolyte solution containing 1% to 1 1/2%

acetic acid and distilled water will produce optimum results.     With these

concentrations,   the electrolyte keeps the cathode and anode plates clean,

creates its own buffer and removes the gas bubbles that form on the plates.

Additionally, the manufacturer claims this concentration of acetic acid will

put the proper pressure on the chemical reaction occurring in the electrolysis

process and, thus, produces higher amounts of hydrogen gas.

       According té the manufacturer, this device when connected to the

vehicle‘s main electrical power supply produces hydrogen and oxygen which

reduces emissions, carbon deposits and increases power and fuel mileage.

v.     HYDRO POWER PAK MODEL 1000C DEVICE EVALUATION AND DISCUSSION

        A 1992 Chevrolet Caprice equipped with a 5.0 liter gasoline engine and

a 1993 Ford Escort equipped with a 1.9 liter gasoline engine were used for the

evaluation of the Iraal,    Inc.‘s Hydro Power Pak Model 1000C device.   For the

Caprice, the dynamometer inertia weight and loading were 4250—lbs and 8.8—hp

                                         ~2—


respectively.     For the Escort, the dynamometer inertia weiéht and loading were

2875—lbs and 7.4 hp respectively.

       Comparative emissions tests were conducted by Environmental Testing

Corporation, Orange, California.       For each vehicle, £esting consisted of one

Cold—Start CVS—75 emission test in the modified (Hydro Power Pak Model 1000C

device installed)    configuration,   and one Cold—Start CVS—75 emission test in the

unmodified (baseline) configuration.        The Air Resources Board performed tests

to confirm the test results submitted by the applicant for the Chevrolet

Caprice.   A summary of the test results is shown below.

       The differences between the device emission test results and baseline

emission test results submitted by the applicant were within the allowed limits

of .1 gm/mile HC, 1.0 gm/mile CO, and .1 gm/mile NOx as specified in the

"Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts."        Therefore, the

installation of the Iraal,    Inc.‘s Hydro Power Pak Model 1000C did not have an

adverse effect on exhaust emissions on the test vehicle.

       Iraal,    Inc. claims that results in the field and laboratory consistently

show reductions in fuel consumption and emissions of hydrocarbons,           carbon

monoxide,    and nitrégen oxides.   However,   the test results from the Air

Resources Board or the Environmental Testing Corporation did not consistently

support these claims.

       Based on the test results, the staff concludes that the installation of

the Iraal,    Inc. Hydro Power Pak Model 1000C device will not have an adverse

effect of exhaust emissions on the affected vehicles.        Iraal,   Inc.   submitted

all the required information and fulfilled the requirements for exemption.
