An independent investigation of the MAGNETIZER® EPM system by Sheffield Hallam University in the UK has arrived. We have seen it and here are our comments, as well as the study.
These are good new 2017 tests demonstrating MAGNETIZER® always works and delivers as advertised.
Sometimes with a punch, as a few of the results obtained by Dr. Abishek Asthana CEng, MIET, FHEA, Ph.D., MEng, MRes, BEng were much higher than average.
In August we received a request from Sustainable to interpret a 50% (sic!)—fifty percent—fuel consumption reduction achieved in this study. We called it an anomaly. This happens with older vehicles which have more than the usual amount of carbon varnish in their engine that significantly lower their performance. Once MAGNETIZER® cleaned up the engine the effect yielded a bigger than usual variance.
The consistency of MAGNETIZER® operation and its long-term positive effect have been proven by various other Universities as well as independent lab testing in the past. If you look at the compendium of several hundred tests done with MAGNETIZER® worldwide you will notice that the savings range is normally higher than that obtained in the SHU study, cf. Ibid. page 32 – the certified diesel truck tests reaching 20% (more magnets used on a large engine), or Ibid. page 37 – the confirmed government tests on the F-150 gasoline-powered extended cab pickups that have resulted in 14% fuel savings.
The positive results are normally measurable already after 10-20 minutes upon the installation. However, in order to achieve the optimal results, Mundimex recommends driving the full Stabilization Period*. At the time of Stabilization Period that includes the time required to magnetically saturate engine metal parts, the savings will fluctuate. This period includes the cleaning of the internal parts of carbon varnish that permit the engine to save the fuel.
The real fuel saving totally depends on the driving habits (economy vs. power), condition of the vehicle, state of its measuring equipment, such as the O2 sensor, the proper installation and factory protocols to be observed, on which type of the road vehicle is driving on or kind of fuel it runs on, like diesel, gasoline or LPG, etc.
Also, Magnetizer is safe-and non-hazardous to people, cars, and its electronic equipment (it is used e.g. by the Police cars in the US or Canada). As a non-invasive technology, it does not void manufacturers’ warranties falling under the Magnusson-Moss Act.
There are many vehicles, especially of older models, running on the road and causing the pollution. In such condition, MAGNETIZER® is one of the best options left in terms of efficiency and affordability.
Now, it’s up to the users to install the MAGNETIZER® or not. In our view, it is one of the best ways available on today’s market to enhance the engine performance and boost up the mileage.
*It is the amount of time involved in dissolving the carbon/varnish build-up. Apart from this, it can also saturate all the steel parts of the engine. The fluctuation can occur because the carbon and varnish start eliminating that time. When the stabilization level is achieved, the engine starts running smoother and easier. This period lasts for about 30 days to 1600 miles. Over the time, the performance starts increasing and results in higher efficiency. The presence of EPM offers the engines to show high performance by making use of lower octane gas, thus helping in the greater savings.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY OF THE SHU MAGNETIZER® STUDY
“Mundimex, Inc. in the United States has been selling ceramic magnets with a trade name Magnetizer® for automobiles and claims that these can enhance the vehicles’ fuel efficiency and reduce pollution emissions from their engines.
Sustainable Flow Ltd., a start-up SME based in Rotherham, is the supplier of these magnets in the UK and EU available as ‘Sustainable Flows Motor Systems’.
However, in order to gain credibility before marketing its products in the U.K., SFL needed to independently verify the performance of these devices. In the past, there have been several similar products in the market which have failed to deliver what they promised. SFL has thus approached Hallam Energy (HE) at Sheffield Hallam University (SHU), to conduct an independent investigation into the performance of these magnetic devices on reducing fuel consumption in automotive engines.
The consistency in the evidence from road tests suggests that the magnets have had a positive impact on the fuel efficiency of the vehicle.”
