Sturman Breakthrough Compression Ignition of NH3 Highlighted at 2013 NH3 Conference

Posted on 9/30/2013 by Administrator Account in NH3

The 10th Annual NH3 Fuel Conference was held September 22 – 25, 2013 in Sacramento. Eddie Sturman was asked to speak about Sturman Industries’ recent successful compression ignition combustion of anhydrous ammonia in the Sturman Air Controlled Engine.

The 10th Annual NH3 Fuel Conference was held September 22 – 25, 2013 in Sacramento.  Eddie Sturman was asked to speak about Sturman Industries’ recent successful compression ignition combustion of anhydrous ammonia in the Sturman Air Controlled Engine.  Eddie shared information on the successful testing completed at Sturman demonstrating the breakthrough capability of Sturman advanced engine controls.  Conventional compression ignition diesel engines are limited to using diesel fuel optimally due to the fixed compression ratio feature of the engines .  Sturman has innovated an engine control system that facilitates flexible compression ignition levels, providing efficient ignition and combustion of a wide range of fuels in the same engine.  Eddie shared Sturman test results showing that Sturman engine controls efficiently ignite diesel at a 16:1 compression ratio (CI), AND can also ignite other alternative fuels that require much higher CI’s. Sturman engineers have achieved an industry breakthrough by demonstrating 16:1 up to 35:1 compression levels, achieving efficient CI of NH3 and natural gas.   The combination of being able to ignite a wide variety of fuels with the more efficient CI method, as well as controlling the entire combustion process in a precise, adjustable and intelligent manner, brings forward a simple method of modernized internal combustion engines to meet future industry and environmental needs.  Sturman is opening the door to practical modernization of mobile and stationary engines to enable peak performance and efficiency using all alternative and conventional fuels.

The conference was organized by the NH3 Fuel Association. Other speakers at the event haled from Colleges and Universities in the United States, Japan, and Sweden as well as US Research Labs, State Environmental and Energy Boards, and private US firms.  The conference addressed issues like using Ammonia as a fuel in mobility, energy generation, and the possibilities of a Green Ammonia Economy – a renewable carbon free future.
