Radiant Containment is the term applied to the combustion enhancement technology developed by Dean F. Johnson and sold through his company, Dean- Tec, Inc. RxP is the trade name used by RxP Products, Inc., licensed by Dean-Tec, Inc., to market the technology in the form of fuel additives from their facilities in St. Petersburg, Florida.
RxP is made from the same hydrocarbons found in gasoline and diesel fuel. RxP is used in only a few parts-per-million, does not change the nature of the host fuel and thus meets all ASTM, SAE, Military Specifications and EPA protocols.
How Radiant Containment works:
Combustion Enhancement – The hydrocarbons that make up fuel have identifiable rates of oxidation (combustion) and thermal value. These values are established by laboratory tests under standard protocols. Refineries try to make the most efficient blends permitted under EPA guidelines during the refining of crude oil into the various hydrocarbons, which vary from chemicals to Bunker C. The energy available from any hydrocarbon fuel is based on its thermal value, commonly known as its BTU.
It is during the oxidation process when Radiant Containment affects the thermal value of the fuels. When the combustion takes place the flame front moves at cm/sec. The radiance, including infra-red heat generated by the flame, is moving at the speed of light. Some of this radiance preheats the fuel air mixture, however a great deal of the radiance escapes into the surrounding area and is dissipated.
Radiant Containment technology causes the oxidation rate to change by developing a shielding action with the H2O formation. This entraps radiance and increases the flame temperature. Radiance increases to the fourth power to temperature increase and this change in H2O gas formation increases the thermal value of the fuel and makes more kinetic energy. This also reduces pollution, including oxides of nitrogen (NOx).
The technology works in all hydrocarbon fuels; gases, liquids and solids. Additional benefits in the internal combustion engine include reducing the need for octane and cetane additives; a reduction in fuel consumption, removing carbon deposits on injectors, spark plugs, valves, pistons and catalytic converters; and revitalizes oxygen sensors. These benefits also provide and overall reduction in maintenance.
