What is the Eco-Valve?
It is a Height Compensator installed in the intake manifold in order to maintain adequate proportions of air and gasoline/diesel entering the engine, adjusting them according to the height above sea level. By dosing an adequate amount of air, an efficient mixture with gasoline/diesel is produced that improves the overall performance of a new or used engine of any car, bus or truck that works with (gasoline or diesel) fuel with either electronic injection or carburetor.
Benefits of the Eco-Valve
Reduces engine knocking: the entry of fresh air into the intake system through the Eco-Valve causes a favorable decrease in the temperature inside the combustion chamber; similar to the effect produced by the EGR gas recirculation system (exhaust gas recirculation), which translates into less “engine knocking” and less environmental pollution due to nitrogen oxides commonly known as NOXs.
Recovers Engine Power: When traveling on a vehicle equipped with a conventional non-turbocharged and naturally aspirated engine a gradual loss of power becomes evident as the height rises above sea level (1% for every 100 meters), especially above 800 meters. All this because the decrease in atmospheric pressure with height causes it to find less mass of oxygen entering the combustion chamber. Resulting in an incomplete combustion, therefore not releasing the full potential of fuel energy. The Eco-Valve allows the air / fuel ratio to be balanced according to the height above sea level; that is, there is more oxygen present, allowing a more complete and efficient combustion, improving the response when stepping on the accelerator.
Reduces fuel consumption: The Eco-Valve allows the “bypass” entry of air into the engine, which decreases the amount of air that usually enters through the purifier filter and then passes through the carburetor producing a reduction in the drag or suction of fuel.
Reduces environmental pollution: The Eco-Valve reduces environmental pollution by dosing an adequate proportion of air into the engine to produce optimum combustion and thus reduce the emission of polluting gases.
Reduces the physical consumption of engine oil: The height compensator reduces the physical consumption of engine oil by 40% because it consistently maintains an adequate mixture of air and fuel and keeps the viscosity of the oil.
