'Deadliest Catch' vessel slices carbon footprint @MotherNatureNet #fvkodiak

The Catalyst Injection System (CIS) feeds an aerosol mist of an inert platinum-based catalyst into the combustion chamber during the intake cycle. On the compression stroke as the temperature in the cylinder reaches 325 degC (620 degF) the catalyst becomes active and begins to break down the carbon particles (soot). As fuel is injected on the power stroke, the presence of the catalyst produces more rapid ignition at a lower temperature, creating a longer burning period during the power stroke. Combustion is more complete, producing more work resulting in increased power for greater fuel efficiency and lower emissions.
