Aquygen Video On YouTube

This seems to be the most viewed video on YouTube for Aquygen or HHO or HHO Gas.  Viewed over 100,000 times.  It was interesting to me that they said they showed their welding application to the Navy because it could "cut lead."

Why hasn't there been any press releases for 18-24 months?

So, here's the first installment of an interview I was able to perform today with Russ Scott who is COO of Hydrogen Technology Applications Inc. I wanted to start with the last question he was willing to answer because it was one that I thought was most interesting.

Question: It seems like 18-24 months ago, there was an interest on the part of your company to talk to the media. But since then...there hasnt been....

Russ Scott: We're gonna know, the more we give, the more they want. And we're going to stay under the radar screen as much as we can until we're ready for a very strong public announcement as to what we've accomplished in that 18 month time period that you are making reference to right now. know....we're just about there.

Question: so then, it was just a big pain when those early news stories came out? in other words, with the media interest it was difficult to conduct your business and stay focused is that what you're saying?

Russ Scott: There was too much....because what it did to this buried this office trying to answer phone calls. The office wasn't prepared for that. So no, we're not going to put something else out there to create more of that. We dont have the infrastructure in terms of people sitting at desks just to take these phone calls.
In future excerpts, I'll post what Russ had to say about immitators/scams, the time frame for his first automotive application, 3rd party laboratory validation, and other topics.

Wow! An actual interview with COO of Hydrogen Technology Applications Inc

Well, it only took 2yrs but I finally was able to interview a senior executive with Hydrogen Technology Applications Inc.   Russ Scott, COO, took fielded some questions today with me on the phone.  I took copious notes and will be posting excerpts from this interview over the next few days so stay tuned. 

Topics to be covered include:  hho gas technology immitations, Department of Defense work, automotive applications, dealing with the crush of the press, etc.

Auto Show Article

I somehow missed this one.  Here's a news article covering an auto show were Hydrogen Technology Applications Inc had on display a proof of concept Ford Focus.

H2O 1500 Aquygen™ Gas Generator

Figured it was time to add a few pics to the blog. Here's the Aquygen Gas Generator, ie, welding maachine. From hytechapps, this description:

The H2O 1500 Aquygen™ Gas Generator runs on water and electricity only! It produces a stable hybrid hydrogen-oxygen gas, with many unique properties. The generator provides a superior gas for most conventional brazing, soldering and metal cutting operations.

These advantages are listed:

Economy: It's up to 90% less expensive than acetylene in gas costs.
A Healthier Working Environment: Zero emission of carbon monoxide versus 100 parts per million for typical acetylene.
Operational Safety: Aquygen™ Gas is light and dissipates rapidly into the atmosphere: compare to acetylene, which is dense and seeks ground level.
Environmentally Friendly: Aquygen™ Gas produces zero pollution when burning, while hydrocarbon-based fuel gases pollute the environment.
New Applications: In addition to performing most conventional brazing, soldering and cutting operations, the H2O 1500 Aquygen™ Gas Generator performs many exotic cutting, brazing and fusing applications that cannot be performed by conventional methods and processes.


Too good to be true?

Check out the last question in this Q/A with Duncan Haimerl in the Hartford Courant. Speaks to some new gadgets that claim to work with hho gas & hydrogen. Seems like the dismissal may be a little quick which is understandable but then again, I think the first time you come across the idea of Aquygen or HHO Gas, it's easy to dismiss it as bunk. But then you kind of poke around a bit and learn that maybe there may be more to it. Make up your own minds. For me, until I actually get in a car with one of these gadgets and drive twice as far on a full tank of gas, then flip the unit off and drive half the distance on a full tank, I'll probably be skeptical.

More on YouTube videos

I was thinking about it this morning.  If you look at the coverage on Denny Klein a couple years ago, it was all over the place even on CNN.  Then they completely stopped talking to the press.  Granted, as a small company, it must be quite a burden to the normal conduct of business to have all this press floating around, etc.  But still, it did make you wonder if maybe they were going to back off some of their claims.  Pons/Fleishman cold fusion comes to mind here. 

But in viewing what they put together on YouTube, you get a strong sense that they are not backing off any of their claims. And with regard to the welding application, it seems they are actually progressing to later stages of developing their marketing strategy by including comments from actual users of the product.   

And of more interest to everyone is of course the claims regarding hho gas as a fuel. They are not backing off of their claims here either.  Watch the second Youtube video and you will see they are actually touting how little effort was required to retool the car with their hydrogen on demand system.  51% fuel efficiency they are touting.  Im not  a physicist so I'm not sure exactly what that probably extremely basic concept means.  Ah yes, wikipedia says its the efficiency of converting chemical (or other) energy into kinetic energy.

HHO Gas Infomercial

Ok, forgive me but I'm off my game here.  Did a little search and found that the folks at Hydrogen Technology Applications inc have posted a couple infomercials on YouTube.  It's heavily oriented around the welding application.  There's alot of footage of Denny Klein discussing the technology as well as lots of examples, interviews with customers, etc.  Much is said about the safety aspect of the welding application. 

The second informercial picks up where the last left off but also starts talking a little bit about the car, aircraft fuel applications.  They call the car hydrogen on demand vehicle and indicate that it has over 51% economy economy. 

Here's the first infomercial. And here's the second one

Also, I added these to a video bar on the right.
