Choosing the Most Powerful Gear Motors

Gear motors combine ordinary machines with reduction mechanisms, which act to reduce the running speed of the machine for specific tasks and application. This can be helpful when highly precise results or very smooth operations are required. The reduction gear is also very useful as it increases the torque value of the machine. This happens because torque and speed are inversely proportional, so that a low speed machine will have a correspondingly high torque value.

Because power is a function of both torque and speed, choosing a machine with the correct reduction capabilities will provide the right amount of power for your application. Read more

HHO Fuels: Different Types of Systems Available to the Public

New hydrogen fueled vehicles available to the general public are few and far between our living reality. There are only a few automotive makers that have successfully put these vehicles on the market and they are very limited in production. This is because these vehicles are prohibitively expensive to mass produce at the moment, and also because there are very few infrastructures that cater for hydrogen fuel stations worldwide. The hydrogen fuel tanks have to withstand great pressures and should also be capable of withstanding high impacts without rupturing because of the obvious consequences.

HHO fuels can be categorized as two different phases:

    High Pressurized Liquid Hydrogen

and

    Hydrogen-on-Demand Systems

High Pressurized Liquid Hydrogen

Pressurized liquid hydrogen is the technological process currently in use with automotive manufacturers using hydrogen vehicles, like Chrysler, BMW, Mini, Honda and Fiat, to name a few. Read more

Running A Car On Water Is Possible

Learning how to run a car on water can save you money on fuel and reduce your carbon emissions, allowing you to contribute to a cleaner environment. With gas prices constantly rising, running your car on water can cut your fuel costs in half – and some people are seeing increases in efficiency of up to 84%!

You may not have been aware that this green technology exists or that step-by-step instructions are already available. In fact, you can purchase the components to build a water fuel cell for less than $250, from sources that are easy to locate. Read more

The Problem With Hybrid, Electric, and Alternative Fuel Cars

Is gas efficiency at the top of everyone’s list when it comes to car shopping? It’s becoming clear that for automakers at least, higher fuel economy cars like hybrids and electric cars are a number one priority. This is further reflected at the most recent Detroit Auto Show a couple weeks ago. New hybrids and electric cars were unveiled by the numbers. However, if consumers were more green minded, in other words, the demand for green cars do not match up with the supply.

Hybrid sales do not reflect an audience that is willing to explore alternative gas cars just yet. Read more

Electric Cars: Better for the Environment?

Most of us know that electric vehicles are pricey, but have distinct environmental benefits not found on any other cars. For these reasons alone, some consumers are attracted to EVs, caring little about the price, but eager to reduce their personal impact on the environment. Let’s take a look at some the attributes of electric cars and how these models can be better for the environment.

No internal combustion engine — Without an internal combustion engine under the hood, cars like the Nissan LEAF do not emit harmful pollutants. Read more

Tech Specs of the Lexus ES Hybrid

The Lexus line up is one of the most varied and expansive among all luxury makes. Its portfolio is dominated by gasoline-powered cars and SUVs, with nary a diesel model in the U.S. fleet. Instead of relying on diesels to give its line up an important edge, Lexus serves up five hybrid vehicles including its five-passenger ES Hybrid sedan. The Lexus ES Hybrid slots above the CT200 Hybrid, and is a front-wheel drive vehicle that features Lexus’ now signature hourglass grille. This vehicle is priced from $38,850.

Hybrid Powertrain

Officially known as the Lexus ES 300h, the ES Hybrid is powered by a 2.5-liter in-line four cylinder engine. Read more

Have You Ever Thought of Changing the Fuel of Your Car From Gas to Electric?

The Midwest has some of highest gasoline prices in the nation. Months ago, on the way home from a play, I got excited to see a sign on the toll way for $4.01 for unleaded gas. It was selling for 10 to 15 cents a gallon less than the stations near where I lived. So, seeing that price, I felt lucky to be able to fill up.

These soaring gas prices are not only having an effect on our wallet, but on our driving habits as well. I myself am reluctant to waste gas driving to a distant outlet mall. Read more

Fuel Cell Energy – A Safe Way to Save on Gas

Science and technology is becoming more and more advanced. A lot of progress is being made in almost all the fields. Well, in this run for progress and development, all the non-renewable resources of energy are getting exhausted. Hydrogen fuel cells are the perfect fuel alternatives through which you can fulfill all your energy needs and requirements. They are the most efficient renewable energy resources through which you can power your vehicles and improve their efficiency. Well, further in this article, I will tell you all the essential facts related to the fuel cell energy.

Hydrogen fuel cells are the most efficient power resources through which one can easily fulfill all his needs and requirements related to power supply. Read more

Mercedes B-Class Revealed

Mercedes have released the official details of their upcoming 2012 B-Class model, ahead of its full unveiling at the Frankfurt motor show in September. For those of you unaware, the B-Class has of course been the companies foray into the small family car market for over six years now, enjoying a fair amount of success along the way. Since its facelift back in 2008, it has remained wholly untouched until now with the upcoming model being the first total redesign since its initial release back in 2005.

Despite the lack of official exterior shots, there is an indication as to what the styling will look like. Read more

Electric Vehicles Are Here, But Can They Really Compete With Conventional Cars?

Nissan Leaf. Car of the year 2011. The first 100% Electric car to win. Ever.

We believe the best way to address the problem of emissions is simply not to produce any emissions at all. So say Nissan, makers of the new Leaf.

The Nissan Leaf is a battery-powered car. But don’t let that put you off! Nissan have spent a lot of time and money on the development of this plug-in electric vehicle. It may have cost the company billions and it’s now going into mass production in the UK and at Nissan plants around the world.

This car already has a reputation as a purpose-designed electric car rather than a modification of an exisiting model which makes it very exciting.

Carlos Ghosn Nissan President and CEO claims the ‘Nissan Leaf (is) competitive to conventional cars in terms of safety, performance, spaciousness and handling.’

But can it give conventional established petrol and diesel cars a run for their money? Some critics think so.

Here’s some of the good things they are saying:

High top speed – they claim a top speed of 90 mph (144 kph)

A very smooth and quiet drive train

The car has excellent handling and road-holding.

Careful design means the batteries are well-hidden

Plenty of space for passengers and luggage.

Good build quality and careful attention to detail

Like all present-day electric vehicles it’s biggest downside is the range it can travel before needing to be recharged. Read more
