I want to thank you and Aat Yuli for bringing this device to our attention.
I find this very interesting, one of the things about the HCS that appeals to me is that this system appears to be very simple and easy to replicate.
I would certainly be willing to either purchase one or put one together myself to see if it really works.
Like you, I'm a little skeptical that the "Katalis" contains anything more than a flashback arrestor, I can't see selling a product containing platinum for $8.
I'm sure somebody in Indonesia has cut one apart to see what's inside?
Have you had any success in locating that patent number?
This system is indeed very cheap to purchase and very easy to install.
Also the installation is easily removed if found to be unsatisfactory.
Another attractive factor is that the confirmations of increased power and significant fuel-economy come from regular users and not from a commercial company promoting some (possibly charlatan) product.
I've tried drawing the guy on the exact contents of the catalyst but he's naturally reluctant to tell me.
He did say that it doesn't contain any chemical; just the same metal as is used in the GEET reactor core.
He also said that if I took one apart; I could easily make one myself.
If I shake the catalyst; I can hear what sounds like a loose-fitting packet of something which will slide back and forth along the length of the copper tube a centimeter or so.
This suggests that it is indeed a metal gauze sheath containing metal powder or shavings of some kind.
All we need to know is what the powder is and what kind of gauze would stand the heat (up to 400C) and we should be able to produce the system ourselves.
Better still; release the information openly to the public.
As you can see from the photo; the catalyst is the only mystery part.
All the other items can be purchased from any auto-parts store.
The control valves are sold in aquarium stores.
The flexible hose feels like rubber and is sufficiently heat-proof.
This system is cheap here in Indonesia but my experience of shipping costs to foreign destinations is that they are way more than the price of the packet's contents.
I asked the guy who sells these if he'd be willing to ship them to the States and he wasn't interested.
He said that he'd gladly supply me with the parts if I was interested to send them on to customers overseas.
I think it would be much more efficient to analyse the contents of the catalyst and make them in the destination country.
As to whether one can crack the petrol vapour with heat alone; why not just try it?
Exchange the catalyst in the drawing for a piece of copper tube and see if you get any measure of power-gain and fuel economy.
All the best.
