Hi HuntingRoss,

Glad to hear from another builder!

You need 36,400rpm for supersonic and 25,500rpm for transonic.

If you fit a vacuum gauge to the volute you can keep an eye on the effect when the viscosity jumps 85 times that of air because the vacuum will also do the same.

You do not need a turbine attached and you can switch it off simply by blocking the inlets.

You will need the rotor balanced.

If it is wider than an inch a dynamic balance is recommended but a static balance is sufficient if less than an inch wide.

Then you need to work out how you are going to create a starter motor to fire up the machine and achieve the supersonic explosions.

When you vacuum garage shoots up to -14psi, 28.5 inches of mercury adding a turbine will make that do supersonic implosions and with a nozzle condense air into water.

With a port you have a torque monster engine.

According to my research on Tesla’s 1889 dynamo you will also have a potential difference between both axles if your pump is a different diameter to the pump.

If you have a port and nozzle the gate valve taps becoming the voltage and amperage controls and also the off switch!


It would be good to see your build and I will try my best to advise.



PS. Here is the flywheel calculator I use for quickly calculating speeds.

343 meters per second for supersonic

240 meters per second for transonic
