George Wiseman discusses Brown's Gas technology
Industry leader describes his work in this fascinating field, spanning
a quarter of a century. Discusses a myriad of applications including
acetylene torch replacement, thick steel cutting, hydrogen boosting for fuel
economy improvement, dissimilar metal welding, transmutation of elements,
nuclear remediation, and refinement of ore.
The Brown's Gas torch by Eagle Research doesn't act by heat but is more of
an electrical phenomenon acting on substrates depending on their
make-up. Hence the torch tip does not get hotter than what can be
held by bare hands.

Last Monday, I interviewed
George Wiseman of Eagle Research. His organization that has been developing and distributing practical energy solutions for 25
years, beginning with carburetor enhancement technology, pre-heating the fuel to
make it burn more efficiently. George is best known for his research and development of Browns Gas and Hydroxy systems, which is what
we talked about in our interview.
I was fortunate several years ago to have been able to play around for several days with one of George Wisemans Browns
Gas generators. It is fascinating technology with a wide array of unusual properties and potential applications. You can wave a Browns Gas torch across your hand and not be burned, then take that same torch on the same setting and sublimate tungsten, which has
a 6192 °F (3422 °C) melting point, in just two or three seconds. It can cut through 4 inches of steel. The hydroxy gas has been used for catalyzing an increased fuel efficiency in vehicles.
More recently, I became aware of a yet another application waste water
William Rhodes first commenced the technology in the early 1900s, noting the unusual
properties of single-ducted gas coming off certain kinds of electrolysis of water. Yull
Brown got involved with the technology, wanting to run a car on the gas.
George said that this is when he got involved, kind of taking over the research
from there, taking the baton from Yull Brown.
George has a couple of Brown's-Gas-producing units for sale, which are available
at http://WaterTorch.com (Mention the
promotion code "PES" for a discount.) The ER1200 runs on a 220-V
outlet, and produces 1200 L of gas per hour -- enough to replace an acetylene
torch. The ER50 is just a small table top demonstrator unit, and runs off
a regular 110-V outlet. George said that even all these years later, his
generator is the most efficient one on the market, as far as he knows.
According to George, the Brown's Gas has a number of constituents. Mostly,
it is composed of diatomic hydrogen (H2) and diatomic oxygen (O2),
as one would expect. However, one to three percent of the gas is
comprised of monatomic hydrogen (H) and monatomic oxygen (O), which
theoretically is not supposed to exist in a stable form. Somehow these are
stabilized. George said he's had Brown's Gas stored for more than a year
and it still functions as Brown's Gas.
George thinks that yet another component of Brown's Gas is what Ruggero Santilli
refers to as a "magnecule" -- namely a species of more than one atom
being held together by magnetic forces, rather than molecular forces.
Santilli describes this process as deriving from when molecules pass through a
plasma arc, breaking into individual elemental atoms, that the local intense
magnetic field causes two or more atoms to come together and then be held by
Whatever the case, George says that the flame coming from Brown's gas behaves
more like a jet of electricity than of a torch of fire or heat. That's why
it doesn't burn skin when the torch is waved across it. The skin is made
mostly of water, and the water is able to absorb the electrical properties
readily without that reaction resulting in heat, compared to when the torch is
applied to metals, silica or other hard objects.
One of the more common uses of the Brown's Gas torch is as an inexpensive
replacement for an acetylene torch.
Another common use of Brown's Gas i in on-board electrolysis systems which duct
the gas into the air intake of a vehicle, at which point the Brown's Gas has a
catalytic role in making the fuel burn more efficiently. George said that
the Brown's Gas makes it easier for the hydrogen atoms to split off the petrol
molecule. Such systems have a lot of different general names: hydroxy,
HHO, Di-Hydroxy; and a number of companies are pursuing commercial
applications of this technology, including George.
One common problem with such systems is that the extra oxygen in the exhaust
trips up the car's computer, making the car richen up the fuel supply, fighting
against the efficiency improvement that is actually taking place. To
counteract that problem, George pioneered the "EFY" circuit which
basically talks to the car's computer to get it to behave properly. Many
different hydroxy researchers and even companies turn to George for his robust
EFY technology to use in their systems.
Some of the other, more exotic applications of Brown's Gas include radioactivity
remediation, transmutation of elements, welding of dissimilar materials, and health. We ran out of time to
discuss the latter two applications.
One of the processes of radioactivity remediation that George described is really quite
simple. The methods involves heating the radioactive material along with a
piece of iron, then adding a little aluminum.
At the point that the reaction gives off a "poof" is
when the radioactive material has been reduced by around 96 - 98 percent,
This is demonstrated in the video below.
of nuclear remediation via Brown's Gas has been its primary impediment to widespread
implementation. George pointed out that 1) the nuclear industry doesn't
necessarily want to eliminate the radioactivity, because a lucrative use for it
might eventually be found; 2) the multi-billion-dollar nuclear storage industry
certainly doesn't want it to go away; and of course, 3) the NIH syndrome in
which the technology is hampered because George doesn't have a Ph.D. behind his
name. Hence, the U.S. has not been encouraging about using this remediation technology despite the proven data, though
there has been some interest by authorities in Canada.
Transmutation is another exotic aspect of Brown's Gas. George pointed out
that the brown sludge that shows up in the on-board electrolysis chambers, when
analyzed, turns out to contain the very metals that are in the electrode -- in
significant quantities -- yet the electrode has not degraded. George
described an experiment that was done in which a bottle with dozens of elements
was placed next to a bottle of water. The Brown's Gas process resulted in
every one of those elements from the neighboring bottle showing up in the bottle
that began as regular water. George also described briefly a concept of
using the Brown's Gas to treat ore. He described a scenario in which the
tailings from an abandoned mine could be treated, resulting in three times as
much yield from the tailings as the mine produced originally.
What I don't understand is why true scientists, who are driven by a thirst to
solve new mysteries, don't jump all over this Brown's Gas research. It is
full of mystery and potentially huge breakthroughs in a myriad of
applications. The ol' ridicule factor must play very strongly to deter
most scientists from playing, who otherwise would go for it.
When I was tinkering with George's ER1200 Brown's Gas machine a few years ago,
we had some gas analyzed by a guy who had developed a technology
whereby he can detect just about any element on the periodic chart from as far
as a mile away. The technology is proprietary and probably classified at
this point, as the military is using it. But back then, he said that the
gas was very high in x. I'll not disclose here what that is, but I will
say that it may be one reason why the U.S. Government hasn't been so warm to
embrace the technology and encourage its widespread usage.
Here's a short YouTube video that covers some of what is
