                                       SUMMARY




          Condensator,   Inc. of 2010 Trimble Way, Sacramento, California 95825

has requested an update to their Executive Order D—69—4 for the Condensator

Supplementary Carburetor (Condensator) to include the following vehicle

applications:




Condensator                           Vehicle Application

Model A                     1991 and older model—year vehicles with engine

                            displacement greater than 2.3L (140 CID), and not

                            equipped with catalytic converter or feedback

                            system.

Model B                     1991 and older model—year vehicles not equipped

                            with catalytic converter or feedback system.

Model C                     1991 and older model—year vehicles.

          The Air Resources Board had previously evaluated the Condensator and

found it not to reduce the effectiveness of the pollution control systems of

the applicable vehicles.      Consequently, the Condensator was exempted from

the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156.        There has been no design

changes to the Condensator, and 1990—1991 model—year vehicles are carry—

yover from previous model—year applications.        Based on the above, staff

recommends that the exemption update be granted as requested.

I.         INTRODUCTION

           Condensator,   Inc.   of 2010 Trimble Way, Sacramento,   California

95825 has requested an update to the Executive Order D—69—4 for the

Condensator Supplementary Carburetor (Condensator) to include the following

vehicle applications:




condensator                 Vehicle application

Model A             1991 and older model—year vehicles with engine

                    displacement greater than 2.3L (140 CID), and not

                    equipped with catalytic converter or feedback system.

Model B             1991 and older model—year vehicles not equipped with

                    catalytic converter or feedback system.

Model C             1991 and older model—year vehicles




II.        CONCLUSION

           The Air Resources Board (ARB) has previously evaluated the

Condensator and found it not to reduce the effectiveness of the pollution

control systems of applicable vehicles.         There has been no design changes to

the Condensator to require new testing.         Based on the above,   staff concludes

that the Condensator will not cause any adverse effect to the pollution

control systems of the applicable vehicles.

III.       RECOMMENDATION

           The staff recommends that the exemption update be granted as

requested and that Executive Order No. D—69—5 be issued, permitting the

advertisement,    sale and installation of the Condensator on vehicles shown

above.


Iv.    DEVICE DESCRIPTION

        The Condensator consists of a closed glass jar with threaded neck

onto which a cap carrying three passages is screwed.   Tubings connect two of

the passages respectively to the PCV valve and the intake manifold.    The

third passage is left open to draw in fresh air to mix with blow—by gases

from the crankcase.   The air bleed passage has a 0.04 inch fixed orifice.

In Condensator Model C which acts only as an oil separator, the air bleed

passage is sealed.    A wire mesh holding absorbent beads is inserted in the

jar as a separator.

        In operation, blow—by gases from the crankcase which normally are

pulled into the intake manifold are routed through the Condensator.     The

crankcase gases combined with suspended oil particles are separated as they

circulate in the device.    The entrapped oil is accumulated at the bottom of

the jar while the gases are drawn into the intake manifold.     The manifold

vacuum also draws air into the Condensator through the air bleed passage for

Models A and B.   The mixture of the bled air and the crankcase gases then

combines with normal fresh air/fuel mixture and gets burned in the

combustion chamber.

v.      DEVICE EVALUATION

        The ARB has previously tested Condensator Models A and B and found

them not to reduce the effectiveness of the pollution control systems of

non—catalyst equipped test vehicles.    Model C was not involved in the

testing since it is an oil separator.    Models A and B are not for

installation on vehicles equipped with catalytic converter or feedback

system because these vehicles are sensitive to the air bleed.     The ARB‘s

tests did not show significant emissions or fuel economy benefits for the

Condensator.   There has been no design changes to the Condensator.

Furthermore, 1990—1991 model—year vehicles are carry—over from previous

model—years for which an exemption has been granted.    Based on the above, no

additional testing is necessary.
