Pulsmag was a synthetic substance developed for use in military-grade automotive and aeronautic design for use in cooling engine systems as well as increased power output and performance. The substance was first engineered in a simpler and less effective form in 1972 by a college research team, pursuing an alternative rocket fuel for atmosphere-to-orbital-exit engines. The substance that came to be known as Pulsmag took the dismissed result of the original team and was revitalized as a fuel-supplement and coolant by Armana research teams in the 2000s.
Composition & useEdit
Pulsmag consisted of a mix of sonically pulsing magnetic fragments, suspended within a synthetic liquid gel. When the fragments were sonically charged at a high output, the mixture reacted by combusting in a large power-output ratio, followed immediately by rapid cooling. Because of this, when combined in the system of a traditional combustible engine, the mixture provided incredible power output and the cooling properties needed to compensate for the combustion reactions. Pulsmag was largely employed in traditional piston-based or combustion engines but could also be found in later years of development in other systems.
In the traditional sense, engines would use a standard gasoline (or alternative fuel) fuel in a combustion engine, likely utilizing a piston engine design or some form of heatsink/electronically-engaged combustion. Pulsmag would be introduced to the fuel mixture. If the fuel held the properties for the mixture to begin its sonic charging, no external ingredients were required. If the fuel did not hold those properties, a third mixture would be required to be injected in to the fuel and Pulsmag mix that would sonically charge the fuel prior to entering the combustion chambers. At the combustion chamber, Pulsmag liquid gel would hyperact in its sonically charged state, providing dramatically increased power output, and because of its nature of rapid cooling, hypercooled the system. Oftentimes, this hypercoolant that resided in a residue would be filtered through to the rest of the engine system and other necessary components.
Risks in the use and carrying of Pulsmag are that, in order for the engine systems to compensate for their increased output, they most often would have to run well beyond standard measures, and as such, operation with Pulsmag was often limited only to very short time of operation. Furthermore, due to its highly combustible and potentially unstable nature, it posed the risk of catastrophic detonation if not kept properly contained, such as in the case of a vehicle suffering combat damage.
Pulsmag was also used as purely a coolant by first causing the substance to hyperact in a separate chamber and then filtering the residue to systems in need of high-intensity cooling.
Pulsmag was also known to be used in some jet engines and other engine systems.
