Engine Burns Its Carbon Monoxide
Elimination of deadly carbon monoxide from
exhaust gas is claimed for a new gasoline engine of radical
design. Half of the cylinders and pistons in the new engine
are larger than the other half; and the number of spark plugs,
valves and intake and exhaust manifold openings is half that
of an ordinary engine having the same number of cylinders. The
inventor, G.A. Bartholomew, of Cleveland Ohio, uses a
principle similar to that of compound steam engines. Only the
small cylinders have spark plugs for ignition. When the
explosion in the small cylinder is almost over, the hot gases
produced pass through a valve into the adjacent large
cylinder, and are mixed with fresh air. Here they continue
burning, using up all carbon monoxide, and producing
additional power with a reduction in fuel consumption.
