The engine shown in Figure 1 is an external combustion type engine which has two air ports, working in a way similar to a two stroke internal combustion engine.
The hot air goes to the burner and is used for improving its efficiency. A three way control valve directs the air flow to the burner or to an exhaust gas pipe. A pulsation dampener keeps the air flow stable.
The compression rate can be changed by displacing the piston head regarding the sliding block. This is done through a worm gear set that rotates the piston stem. ...
Fencing Automation Machine(FAM)
Machine for Erecting/Fixing Paling Planks to a Pre-Erected Wooden Fence Frame
My proposal is to Design & Build a machine or “Automation/Tool – The FAM” to help & aid a fence builder, Construct Paling Type Fences in quite varying terrains. Having the flexibility to suit quite a range of landscapes where the builder at the time of proposing his quotation to the customer, will determine if the machine can be utilized for this particular construction job.
The intended path of travel for the “FAM” requires the operator to clear away any loose debris, e.g. rocks, timber ...

This valve allows individual selection of 2 or more fluid sources by applying a reverse pressure pulse downstream from the valve. The valve has been produced with plastic molded parts and tested at inches of water pressure, but may easily be scaled up to higher pressures using machined or cast metal component ...

A large unmet need in the oil and gas industry is a portable power generation system which is reliable, requires little maintenance, can operate continuously for extended periods of time, and has the capacity to consume on-site fuel.
Dynamo Micropower is developing robust, fuel flexible, ultra-portable sub-30kW microturbine generators for highly distributed generation in an electrically driven world.
The majority of oil and gas well locations are in remote, isolated areas with limited or no electrical grid infrastructure. Bulky diesel reciprocating engine generators are typically used to power pumping equipment on site. Diesel fuel is not only expensive, but ...

Biogas is one of the alternative energies that has been widely applied to the community, especially for the farm. Of the various types of gas contained in the biogas, methane is the energy source with a composition ranging from 40-70%. If the concentration of methane in the biogas called ”filter biogas.” Such a device shaped cylindrical tube containing absorbent based solid materials locally Indonesia. Absorbing material made of solid materials based on local natural zeolites Indonesia that has been activated and modified with other materials which improving the performance of biogas which can be converted into electrical energy. This absorbing ...

Production demands on skilled workers are at an all time high. Welders, assembly technicians, machine builders and repair workers all have to endure long hours of repetitive physical maneuvers which many times include hand cranking workbench clamps and vises. This exhausting physical labor can result in fatigue related injuries. Often times the vises loosen during a critical process such as welding or assembly work which can also result in a risk for injury.
The new INCREDICLAMP ™ is simply the safest, most powerful workbench clamp mechanism ever. Up to 7x the clamping strength of standard screw ...
LIGHTER AND BETTER BUCKET
The payload capacity of a wheel loader is directly related to the weight and volume of its bucket, by reducing the weight of bucket,the payload capacity is increased and can handle more cargo, using same amount of fuel.
A lighter and better bucket has been designed, which is eco-friendly, cheaper to manufacture and economical to operate. The difference in design is stated below.
Fabrication of standard buckets
In standard buckets fig 1, longitudinal stiffeners, transverse stiffeners,are made of steel plates (ASTM A 36,IS 2062)cut to shape by oxy/plasma torch, the edges prepared by grinding. The ...
I have proposed a system of linear motion modules used only for light commercial applications.
Wherever there is a need to displacement light parts at higher speeds, in assembly lines, packaging lines, in positioning systems and many other applications.
Technology which is used to perform a 3D printing (FDM) ABS material. The basic elements that ensure accurate linear motion, this linear bearings type UU and guide bars.
Through the use of ABS, can reduce significantly the mass movable elements. This can be used in two ways. The use of smaller motors propulsion, or increase the feed speed.
In addition, ...
Many maritime accidents are due to poor weather conditions and several meters of sea waves & strong winds that make rescuing people in the sea very difficult. So even when the search & rescue boat reaches the danger zone to save people in distress they spend too much time out on the water. In deeper analysis, three different specific scenarios. As far as the beach scenario is concerned, both remote control and supporting lifesaver boat have already been developed. In this case, since the main cause of death is drowning, the device should also have an in-water camera since the problem is ...
ME2 is an Internal Combustion Rotary Engine. The ME2 is a true rotary engine, all moving parts are balanced and rotate from one central axis. The ME2 (unlike reciprocating piston engines) maximizes its torque output throughout the lenght of its power stroke. Made from ceramic material, it requires no cooling system and no liquiid lubricants. It is compact, lightweight, powerful and ...
