Overview


Innovative, efficient spray technology


Across a wide range of applications and industries, fouRy’s innovative technology can make spraying more efficient and economical, less wasteful, and safer for humans, animals, plants, and the environment.


Our company has developed low-power, charge-injected spraying, which we believe is a unique and superior way to spray.

Charge-injected spraying requires no propellants. The spray can wrap around and evenly coats all of a target’s surfaces, including irregularities and indentations, with minimal drift or overspray. This means things like materials costs, environmental damage, and safety risks from spray dispersal can be minimized. 


Dr. Arnold Kelly, fouRy’s co-founder and CTO, has a Ph.D. from CalTech, worked at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Exxon, and was a full professor at Princeton’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. He is the listed inventor or co-inventor on 20 patents, including fouRy’s foundational charge-injection patent, and has authored or co-authored 20 technical papers on charge-injection. He is one of the world’s leading authorities on charge-injected spraying and the quantum physics associated with it because he invented it. 

THE Problem


Most spraying and fuel combustion technologies are hazardous and wasteful 



That's because the fluid or powder being sprayed are typically lost to aerosol drift or overspray–coating the target more than once. Fuels are burned incompletely, leading to unhealthy particulate and gaseous wastes. Not to mention…





THE SOLUTION


We think ChIPS completely changes the game

fouRy’s patented Spray Triode Atomizer™ is the heart of Charge-Injected Precision Spraying, or ChIPS.


The Spray Triode Atomizer can impart a negative charge to the sprayed fluid before it leaves the nozzle. The negatively charged droplets can repel each other. The spray can provide its own propulsion, eliminating the need for chemical propellants and superfluous water in the spray. Droplet size and spray path can be controlled. There is little or no aerosol drift, and the spray’s wrap-around effect can thoroughly and evenly coat all surfaces with little to no overspray. It’s that simple.


Here’s Dr. Kelly:


*The above is a rendering of a future product. Images are prototype demo versions. Product is still currently under development not yet available on the market.


For combustion applications like portable burner stoves, the Spray Triode Atomizer produces smaller charged droplets and virtually complete blue-flame combustion. In an internal combustion engine, the like-charged droplets’ mutual repulsion produces better dispersion and mixing within the combustion chamber. Simulations show that charge, smaller droplet size, greater dispersion, and improved air-fuel mixture produce higher fuel combustibility, improved engine efficiency, and less particulate and gaseous waste byproducts, creating what we feel is superior performance at competitive cost.


*The above is a rendering of a future product. Images are prototype demo versions. Product is still currently under development not yet available on the market.


We believe that ChIPS technologies substantially lower costs, increase efficiency, and reduce the environmental impact in a variety of applications.


We anticipate that ChIPS will have transformative potential in the following industries:


  • Aerosol Personal Care Products
  • Precision Crop Spraying
  • Livestock and Meat Safety
  • Eradicating Insect-borne Diseases
  • Industrial Painting and Coating
  • Powering Efficient, Green Outdoor Appliances
  • More Efficient, Less Polluting Diesel Engines
  • And much more

Our business model is to incorporate ChIPS technology into multiple spraying applications and platforms—both our own and licensees—and to extend Dr. Kelly’s fundamental discoveries to commercial applications like disinfection, filtration, fuel-injection, and polymeric nanofiber production.







THE Market


Entering robust markets at many entry points


Our technology and physics may enable numerous applications in multi-billion dollar industries and are both economically and environmentally sound.


(sourcesource/sourcesource/sourcesource)


fouRy wants to put its unique charge-injection technology into as many types of spraying applications as possible.


*The information in the above graphic includes anticipated features for fouRy's Charge Injections. fouRy is still in the prototype stage of development



Our Traction


Gearing up with  partners, prototypes, patents, and trademarks


We have agreements with commercial and government partners to develop specialized spraying applications. Third-party testing indicates that charge-injected distilled water can kill bacteria. We’re just starting to determine the commercial opportunities. Dr. Kelly’s theoretical and lab work support eventual expansion to separation, filtration, and desalination technologies. fouRy owns the charge-injection patent, has filed two additional patent applications for distilled water and form-oil spraying technology,  registered its logo trademark, and filed three other trademark applications. Our trade secrets will eventually be the basis for more patents and trademarks.


Here’s a closer look at our successes. 





Why Invest


We have patented a new technology


At fouRy, we’re incorporating discoveries of quantum-level electrical phenomena - putting approximately a million highly charged electrons on each drop of a charge-injected spray creates unique spray properties. 

*The above is a rendering of a future product. Images are prototype demo versions. Product is still currently under development not yet available on the market.


In the next five years we want to move several products that are now prototypes to market, generating cash flow and profitability, and build a research and development team to work with Dr. Kelly to commercialize his discoveries, technologies, and trade secrets. We also intend to dig an intellectual property moat to protect that IP and the products that come from it.


We aim to use this raise towards…

  • Operating costs
  • Upgrading Dr. Kelly’s lab
  • Hiring technicians and engineers
  • Paying for design consultation and outsourcing manufacturing as we take prototypes to commercialization
  • Paying for domestic and international patents for intellectual property that is now trade secrets

Invest in us, and invest in a future of more efficient, more environmentally-sound spray technology.

Turning Water into an Antimicrobial Disinfectant! 4Ry Files Patent Application for its Distilled Water Sprayer!

1 day ago


4Ry has filed a provisional patent application for Chief Technology Officer Dr. Arnold Kelly’s distilled water sprayer. The provisional application protects 4Ry’s status as the first to file with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. We have a year to file the formal patent application and we plan to do so as soon as possible. Our filing will also seek patent protection for a number of related applications and technologies, including desalination and water filtration and purification.

4Ry's Distilled Water Sprayer Prototype

The sprayer charge-injects distilled water. For a typical 50 micron droplet, it imparts roughly a million negative charges. A Rydberg (Ry) unit is the energy required to ionize a hydrogen atom and is 13.6 electron volts (eV). Each charge has ∼54 eV of energy, or 4 Ry units (thus the name of the company).

We believe that the sprayer’s highly charged droplets will disrupt essential biological processes and kill bacteria and other microorganisms. We have received third-party experimental verification that it kills E. coli bacteria with 4-log efficacy (99.99 percent). We are currently seeking additional confirmation of that testing, as well as further tests of the sprayer’s lethality for other bacteria, spores, fungi, other microorganisms, and viruses.

If charge injected distilled water does, in effect, electrocute a wide range of microorganisms, its potential as an antimicrobial and sterilizing agent is readily apparent. Large market applications could include bottle, can, and other food and beverage container sterilization, meat and produce safety, and hospital and laboratory instrument and surface disinfection. Turning low-cost, easy-to-produce distilled water into an antimicrobial could upend current methods that rely on more expensive—and in many cases hazardous and corrosive—chemicals.

4Ry Successfully Demonstrates a Form-Oil Prototype at Oldcastle Infrastructure Plant!

19 days ago

How ChIPS™ Can Help Oldcastle Infrastructure

Oldcastle Infrastructure, the largest U.S. precast concrete manufacturer, contacted 4Ry concerning a spraying problem. To make precast concrete objects, concrete is poured into steel forms. Before the concrete is poured, the form is sprayed with form oil to facilitate the object’s separation from the form after the concrete has cured.

The spray technology the company was using left form oil pools on the ground around the form. These pools are a safety risk, an environmental hazard, and require costly remediation and disposal. Oldcastle wanted to solve this problem, but the company also wanted to improve spray quality and economize on form oil usage.  Although 4Ry didn’t have a form-oil sprayer at the time, Oldcastle came to us because 4Ry’s patented technology, Charge Injected Precision Spraying™, or ChIPS™, presented a number of potential benefits.

With ChIPS, negatively charged droplets repel each other, providing the spray’s propulsion towards the grounded form. ChIPS has a low power requirement. The charged droplets are attracted to the form, on the same principle that lightning goes to the earth, the ultimate ground. The spray wraps around the form with a smooth, even coat that uses less oil than traditional spraying. It also coats any indentations or other irregular surfaces. There is a minimum of drift and overspray, reducing inhalation risks and environmental impact.

4Ry Demonstrates Form-Oil Sprayer Prototypes

4Ry CEO Robert Gore and Vice President Mark Akimoto recently demonstrated two form-oil sprayer prototypes at Oldcastle’s plant in Chandler, Arizona.


4Ry Form-Oil Sprayer Prototype


Oldcastle managers Cody Westcott, Herman Hopper, and Ryne Eich witnessed the demonstration on a large form the company uses to make concrete tunnel components. The outer and inner part of the form were separated by an overhead crane.


Precast Form for Concrete Tunnel Component

It is apparent from the picture that the inner part of the form was very rusty. It had been left outside for some time. Standing about three feet from the form, Gore and Akimoto took turns coating the inner form with one of the prototype sprayers. The spray, consisting of 60 to 80-micron droplets, was barely visible in the bright Arizona sunlight, but it was obviously wetting the form surface. Initially it appeared that the spray was only spotting, not covering the entire surface, but the spots spread out for a thorough, even coat. The spray itself was about six feet wide, and it bent with the curved contour of the form. With one sprayer, the inner form was coated in less than two minutes.


Inner Part of Concrete Tunnel Form after 4Ry Prototype Spraying

Next, Gore and Akimoto sprayed the inner surface of the outer form. Compounding the difficulty was a large, grid-like wooden and metal covering over the top of the form. Working around that covering, they coated the inside of the outer form with a top-to-bottom coat of the same quality as that applied to the inner form, even though they could only spray from above the form. 




   Concrete Tunnel Components

The Sprayer Performs

Oldcastle’s managers were impressed with the sprayer’s performance. Most importantly from their standpoint, there was no pool of form oil on the ground around the two parts of the tunnel form, and there was no streaking or dribbling that would mar the surface of the concrete tunnel components produced.

In discussions after the demonstration, the managers offered to assist 4Ry in the development of a commercial version of the form-oil sprayer. They said 4Ry was welcome to return to Chandler to test new prototypes. If the commercial version meets expectations and Chandler starts using it, they said there was a strong possibility that it would be used in all of Oldcastle’s North American plants. Oldcastle is a subsidiary of CRH, a $29 billion (revenue) Irish building products multinational that may also be a market for 4Ry’s form-oil sprayer.

The Oldcastle demonstration is important for several reasons. We can tout how Charge Injected Precision Spraying™, or ChIPS™, is different and better than any other type of spraying, but seeing is believing. The Oldcastle managers didn’t have to see it very long before they were convinced. Our sprayer will be right at home in the precast concrete industry, but there are many other industries that require precision spraying applications as well. This demonstration is an important step from the laboratory to the marketplace, with plenty of other products incorporating Dr. Kelly’s discoveries and technologies on the way.

 With your help, 4Ry will be a profit-driven business. Invest in 4Ry today!

The Controller, the Brain of 4Ry's Technology

about 1 month ago

Hello, everyone

The controller is the brains of 4Ry’s Charge Injected Precision Spraying™, or ChIPS™. It controls the current with which the Spray Triode Atomizer’s™ cold cathode emitter charge-injects the fluid before it leaves the Atomizer. That an optimal spray that charge must be varied. The details of that variability are a trade secret.

FouRy has been working with HVM Technology of New Braunfels, Texas for almost three years to develop a compact controller. HVM is one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of miniature electronic components. When we first started, we thought it would be relatively simple. It turned out to be anything but simple. Essentially, the controller has to continuously adjust charge in response to fluctuating charge densities and fluid conditions within millisecond time frames. We eventually solved the technical challenges, but not without a lot of false starts and frustration.

Controller

The controller is small, 64mm x 39mm x 16mm, about two-thirds the size of a deck of playing cards, but extraordinarily powerful. HVM has delivered ten for prototypes and we will be ordering many more. The controller will be incorporated into spray applications where conditions are not static and stable. It is already part of two portable form-oil sprayers we recently delivered to Oldcastle Infrastructure, the largest U..S. precast concrete manufacturer.

Controller is inside the black box in front of the hand-held sprayer prototype’s handle

It was also be a component of ground-based agricultural sprayer prototypes we will be delivering to Raven Industries of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and drone-based sprayer prototypes we’ll be delivering to EAVision Technologies of Pleasanton, California, and Rantizo of Iowa City, Iowa. Enthusiastic about the potential of charge-injected spraying, these companies have patiently awaited delivery as we wrestled with our controller problems. Now that we’ve solved them, they will be providing invaluable field-performance data and feedback as we take the next step from prototypes to commercial models.

Together, we can take fouRy from lab to market. Invest in 4Ry now and get 15 percent Super Early Bird Bonus Shares!
