Sykavy,

Yes, this IS an excellent site. I have corresponded for over three years with the person who put this site together. His name is Scott Robertson and he currently lives in The Philippines. It is a treasure trove of information on how to gain free energy from compressed air. The most important fact to realize is that the very act of compressing air yields free energy. This happens because, according to the mathematical formula PT/V, 100% of the energy required to compress the air is converted to HEAT, but then you also have the compressed air that can produce mechanical energy when it is expanded again.

A home heating system that uses this principle was patented in 1930 and is available for download here: THERMAL PLANT - Google Patents (http://www.google.com/patents?id=uLZPAAAAEBAJ&dq=1781062)

This is real, free energy, right under everyone's nose.

Good work, Sykavy!!

Peter, that is a very profound concept! :)

Aaron,

Yes, the implication is, if you conserve BOTH the heat and the pressure, in one simple compression stroke, you have more energy available than you started with. The problem with compressed air systems is that they get rid of the heat immediately, primarily because it is building up SO FAST.

A Diesel Engine uses this "heat of compression" to ignite the fuel to initiate the power stroke. Rudolf Diesel's original engine was 75% efficient, primarily because he used such high compression. It was also the original "bio-fuel" engine, running on Peanut Oil.

The point is, in long conversations between Scott Robertson and I two years ago, we came to the conclusion that an engine could be built that ran on HOT WATER and the degraded SOLAR ENERGY resident in the ambient air temperature. The machine consists of a high compression air compressor as the first stage and a steam engine as the second stage. The compressed air is deposited in an insulated chamber between the two cylinders, where hot water is injected. The "heat of compression" boils the water, so the total temperature of the system goes DOWN, but the pressure goes way up. This mixture of hot air and steam is dumped into the steam engine side and converted to more mechanical energy than is required for the compression stroke. The exhaust is air, steam and hot water. The steam is condensed back to hot water and all of the hot water is recycled to be used over and over.

The machine can be thought of as a "SOLAR STEAM ENGINE" that does not require a boiler, or even for the Sun to be out, for that matter. It can also be thought of as a "COMPRESSED AIR MOTOR" that does not require a tank of compressed air. It is really a HEAT ENGINE, that uses water as the working fluid and runs on the heat in the ambient air.

Oh, and by the way, the heat in the ambient air is the ultimate energy source on a WARMING PLANET!!!!!

Keep thinking.

Peter

PS. This engine design and theory is conceptual. Neither Scott nor I have had the resources necessary to attempt to build one yet.

thanks Peter for the info. such a simple thing that just hasn't been explored enough.

One of the articles on the website above said that airtrains were common in coal mining and especially through out Europe in 1920's -1930's.

An inventor Charles Bowen Hodges came up with a way of using the compressor's extra heat to expand the air.

Sykavy,

Yes, the diAngelo rotary air motor is the best one out there. We contacted him a few years ago, and he knows that compressed air has OU potential. The best compressors are the Copeland Rotary Scroll Compressors. Used mostly in large AC units, they are between 20% and 30% cheaper to run for the same work.

All that is needed to build a self-running car, based on this technology, is a few extra million$ and a couple of years to work out the bugs!

Air is so amazing!! I don't know how many people have heard of Tornado in a can
Frank Polifka calls his Windhexe machine "Tornado in a Can". It safely harnesses the enormous power of a funnel cloud in a small mechanical canister. The efficiency with which it can pulverize a wide array of items defies conventional physics and invites a new model to be constructed to explain how vortex energy operates.

msnbc.com Video Player (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/4839268#4839268)

The patent doesn't have any pictures. I wonder how it works? if it is cold and hot air like a tornado?
Still air is amazing.
I always thought why would we want to bring the sun to earth with fusion when a tornado or a huricane has more than enough energy for us to use.

Have you check out the website? It should answer most of your questions about compressed air.

My first thought is that by putting another load on the engine only adds the the the entire load of the motor. Compressed air isnt magical. It still obeys the laws of energy; you can't get out more than you put in but in a special way it can be used similar to a battery that stores solar energy. It doesnt store the energy itself but can be used to collect the energy (Heat) that surrounds it. There is a lot of thinking and gadgetry that must go into organizing it the right way to get OU.

Compressed air has potential but it can be pretty complicated too. This is the reason we don't have air cars everywhere it isn't as simple as it sounds but that being said it isn't as complicated as some other means of energy.

One way air motors could be OU simply; is If you had a solar/windmill compressor that worked all day (and night if there is wind) you store all that compressed air in tanks and then run a generator on that. The compressed air would replace electric batteries and compressed air can be stored for long periods of time with no loss of potential energy; while batteries charged by solar energy would store the energy but start wear down over time.

thats my thought but check out the above website to understand the great things the compressed air has done and can do.

Windmill compressed air is a VERY PRACTICAL solution that can be done now.

Yeah! that was one of the reasons I was so excited about the Indian (French design) air car. Even if it was relatively expensive to make up such a solar/wind system to store at home, it would be worth it. You could fill your car at home!

Ive been reading a lot about air lately and here is a tid-bit that doesnt have any numbers but Scott Robertson is the GUY when it comes to compressed air and I trust him ( as well as Peter Lindemann's endorsement):

"It takes less work to increase the pressure of a volume of air from 100 to 200 psi than it would take to increase the same air from 0 to 100 psi. This can be verified by looking at any air compressor power consumption chart ever published. It is the rationale behind the closed cycle pneumatic power plant, which can do more work with smaller machinery.

Any chance to boost the pressure of already compressed air instead of compressing atmosphere will lower the relative size of the machinery needed to do that task, because more energy per unit volume of compressed air is handled by a booster than by a normal atmosphere compressor with the same displacement."

So smaller compression in a series of compressors could be more efficient than just using one compressor. Very interesting:thinking:

That is an idea..... are you saying put the compressor on the windmill itself?

That sure would kill voltage loss in the lines, and you could cheaply run the air to a tank a VERY long way away.

I have been thinking of buying or creating a tank to store compressed air with a safety valve that would kick in if the pressure got too high. The ideas of heating here look outstanding. But a windgenerator hooked directly to an air compressor, I love the thought of that idea.

I just posted the following in the electric car thread but then regretted it because it was off topic and really belongs here since it has to do with pressure. I just get so excited sometimes about this stuff.

The Inertial Storage Transmission (IST) that Carman developed bypasses all these problems by storing the engine's energy in high-pressure fluid. The fluid is pumped out of a reservoir by a small gas engine, into an accumulator at high pressure, which holds the fluid like a super-soaker holds water. Then, based on acceleration, more or less high pressure fluid is fed out of the reservoir through a hydraulic motor (like a turbine) to drive the wheels.

The system works almost identically to current hybrid electric systems, with some major advantages. First, it's cheap; hydraulics are a common technology with low service costs and cheap materials. Second, there are no expensive batteries or electronic systems to damage. And third, energy loss in pressurizing the accumulator tank is much less than for charging batteries.

Vincent Carman: Inertial Storage Transmission (http://www.rexresearch.com/carman/carman.htm)

Carman isn't alone. At least one other group of inspired experimenters has found a way to use hydraulics to vastly increase an automobile's gas mileage.
That group is a class of advanced students at Minneapolis, Minnesota's Hennepin Vocational Technical Center. And under the guidance of instructor Ernie Parker (and without ever having heard of Vince or his Inertial Storage Transmission), the class recently designed and built what they call a "hydraulic storage transmission".

Does it work? It sure does! As the students have already demonstrated, when their special drive train is coupled to a 16-hp Tecumseh engine, installed in a Volkswagen chassis, and covered with a Bradley GT body ... the resulting one-of-a-kind automobile will travel (at speeds up to 70 mph) an incredible 75 miles on a single gallon of gas.

That's impressive, especially when you remember that the HVTC fuel-stretcher was entirely constructed from off-the-shelf components that are readily available to any home mechanic in any part of the country. The sleek little automobile contains absolutely no exotic technology or hardware at all.

From my reading the compressor would be on the windmill itself or mechanicly on the ground. It is already being used on a large scale in Germany electro- power plant for 25 years.http://www.uni-saarland.de/fak7/fze/AKE_Archiv/AKE2003H/AKE2003H_Vortraege/AKE2003H03c_Crotogino_ea_HuntorfCAES_CompressedAir EnergyStorage.pdf

But that being said I think it would be more practical to have one for each home. One draw back is the noise windmills can make it drives some people crazy.
There are a some patents that say that windmills and compressed air is the way to go since the speed the turbine spins isn't so important to compress air as to generate electricity.

One idea is to put the compressor underground and blanket the compressor with water to absorb the heat generated by compression and use that for the hot water for the house/heating and the air tanks underground plus airconditining too since expanding compressed air could cool the house.

I found a forum that discusses Hydraulics and some talk about air compression.

These are serious guys that make off road vehicles but they use hydraulic energy like Carman (see post# 20 above) to run them.
(they also make some really cool videos! Like a kid's car the goes about 30 mph in the snow :rofl: !)

This may be a good place for contacts for people on this forum. They may help develop other possibilities like the Lindemann motor.
They also have a DVD it looks similar to Peter's except they explain the secret of hydraulic motors.:)

Super Glad to hear it!!
There are different levels of air cars.
1.Hybrid air cars carry a gas-powered engine and compressor on-board

2. Conventional air cars, such as the pneumatic locomotives and the French and Australian in your video link, which stop at air stations to refuel.

3. Self-fueling air cars are powered by solar energy and can travel non-stop until they break or develop an air leak. Such cars are experimental in nature, and getting an inventor to give up his secret is harder than figuring it out for yourself. Hint: absolute zero (if the sun went out, for example) is 460 degrees below 0 degrees Fahrenheit

Here is one, the Neal patent#: 2,030,759, that blew peoples minds and he mainly converted an old car into an air car ( from an interview of his son) but the compressor was the key. He could fill his tank at the same time he used the air. the Patent office wouldn't approve it because they called it a perpetual motion machine but Neal (the inventor) flew to Washington with a suit case example in his bag to prove that this idea worked and it wasn't perpetual motion the energy came from the ambient air. They saw it work and gave him a patent but the patent is missing details on his "magic Valve".

How did he fill the compressed air tank with normal air? This is the mystery.

-------------------------------------------------------------
Here is some info below that may help your brother:

Does anyone have feed back on these pumps supercharger pumps(US patent #2159278 and 4789299)? How efficient are they? If anyone knows anything about them could you explain?

check out these patents:2159278 and 4789299

Here is the Neal patent: 2,030,759

You have to put these numbers in this search engine:

Here is a link that may help your brother to understand the great things air can do!
Equalization Engine, Luther's Secret for Self-Fueling Air Car (http://www.aircaraccess.com/newideas.htm#jetpump)
Pneumatic Options Research Library (http://www.aircaraccess.com/catorig.htm)

Here is an idea I had about Neal's "magic valve." There is pictured two valves that put air into the tank. Could these be spirals pumps ( from the above patent or something similar to it?) look similar to the valve pictured? What he may have done is connected two valves (with spiral pumps as above) with a long shaft that went thru the Neal tank on one long central shaft to the motor. Maybe all they did was erase the drive shaft from the motor going thru the tank to the valves.

REMEMBER:
"It takes less work to increase the pressure of a volume of air from 100 to 200 psi than it would take to increase the same air from 0 to 100 psi. This can be verified by looking at any air compressor power consumption chart ever published. It is the rationale behind the closed cycle pneumatic power plant, which can do more work with smaller machinery.

Any chance to boost the pressure of already compressed air instead of compressing atmosphere will lower the relative size of the machinery needed to do that task, because more energy per unit volume of compressed air is handled by a booster than by a normal atmosphere compressor with the same displacement."

Mixing the fresh atmospheric intake with air that is already compressed ( The exhaust from the engine may have a third or more of their original pressure. The pressure used to move the pistons doesn't or isnt completely used because it could end up freezing the engine with ice etc...). By recycling the exhaust, there may be only "1%" ( or a little bit more) of the compression work left to do, which could be easily accomplished with less resistance and less heat.

Hi all :)
We disassembled the lawnmover motor and took out all the parts that we don't need for running on air.

http://www.emuprim.lv/bildez/thumbs/lrg-238-air_002.jpg

Now we need to cnc a new cover for the piston so that it seals off those valves from the compression chamber. The cover will have two holes in it, one for ait input and the other for the air output. We are now working on a mechanical timing valve that will allow to comutate the air input and output at precise timing, but till then we want to run this baby using electronic valves:

http://www.emuprim.lv/bildez/thumbs/lrg-237-air_001.jpg

I know that electronic valves can not switch fast enough to achieve high speeds, but it will do for testing purposes. So here is what we will try:

http://www.emuprim.lv/bildez/thumbs/lrg-235-air1.JPG

So when the piston is on its highest point, the electronic valve #1 will switch on and let the air in allowing the piston to move to its lowest point, then the electronic valve #1 will switch off and the valve #2 will switch on, allowing all the air to escape when the piston moves back up due to its inertia. This all will be commutated by two optotrigers and a cluminum commutator wheel. Wi will try 50:50 duty cycle. Here is the circuit I am intending to use:

http://www.emuprim.lv/bildez/thumbs/lrg-236-air2.GIF

Of course this setup will not be very efficient, because the air will move the piston only 50% of the time and inertia will do the rest. But it will teach us the basics. Also after these tests I could make a hole in the bottom part of the engine and arrange the air flow so that the first 50% of the period tha air pressure moves the piston down and in the rest time I could make the air flow in the bottom hole pushing the piston up from the bottom. That would be more efficient.
These electronic valves have a coil in them and that will make some BEMF trouble, so I probably will need to attach a neon bulb in the circuit or a secondary charging battery to protect the transistors :)
What do you think?

Jetijs

If you study the alternative electronics and your brother alternative pneumatics
I think you will really have something!!

Did you ever notice one of the Teal patents has an air compressor attached to his motor? I don't know why he chose air and not something more popular.

I'd be interested to know if he used compressed air to benefit his motor in some way like air cooling.
