Installation of a Waterboost System could not be simpler although it is recommended that the system be installed by a qualified technician. There are a number of options to choose from when you specify your Waterboost, so this installation example is the most simple. The water fuel cell status is shown on an in-car display, illustrated below:
The display has a soft, blue glow LCD display, which is easy to read and lets you know what your Waterboost unit is doing. The Waterboost Kit includes a fuse holder, fuse, a large relay, the Waterboost unit, polyeurethane tube, injector head and a digital in-car display.
The installation of a hydrogen fuel system, like any electrically driven system requires a fuse for safety reasons and a relay to allow the ignition system to automatically turn the Waterboost system on and off. The Waterboost system can also be supplied with a voltage sensing switch or manual switch to further enhance the control and safety options available to our customers.
The Waterboost wiring diagram is pictured below:
The unit contains the water that will be split into its elements of hydrogen and oxygen.
The waterboost unit can be fitted anywhere in a vehicle but the ideal location is under the bonnet. The machine only requires 2 cables, an earth to the bodywork and a live connection to the relay. The waterboost unit does not store any gas. As the gas is produced it is delivered from the clear tube at the top of the unit into the gas injector head, picture below:
The gas injector is a 3 piece fitting that screws to both sides of a hole to acheive a nice airtight seal. It can be mounted to the inlet manifold, air intake box or on the rubber hose connected to the manifold. The tube from the gas machine is then connected to the gas injector. The gas injector creates a swirl of gas to ensure an even distribution as it passes into the manifold.
