Cyclone Power Technologies Receives Fifth U.S. Patent for Its Green Engine
Tuesday, June 08, 2010
Pompano Beach, FL -- Cyclone Power Technologies (Pink Sheets: CYPW) announced today that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued a Notice of Patent Allowance on the centrifugal condenser of the Company’s heat regenerative external combustion engine.
The patented centrifugal condenser, comprised in part of 40 stacked aluminum plates with over 60 sq.ft. of total surface space, serves to quickly and efficiently cool the steam exhausted from the engine’s cylinders back into water. The process is capable of lowering temperatures hundreds of degrees (F), thus allowing the Cyclone Engine to reuse its working fluid (de-ionized water) in a closed-loopprocess. Additionally, the cooling air which becomes heated in the condensing process is regenerated by the Cyclone Engine and used to pre-heat combustion air in the engine’s patented combustion chamber, thereby increasing thermal efficiencies.
The current patent on the Cyclone Engine is its fifth in the United States. The Company now has patents on each of the three major component systems of the engine – one on its combustion chamber, two on its mechanical operations (comprised of pistons, valves, bearings and other sub-components), and now one on the condensing system. The Company has an overall patent on the total Cyclone Engine system in the United States and several other nations throughout the world.
“This new patent provides greater protection for our high-efficiency, clean air engine system, and added proof of the uniqueness of what we have built,” stated Harry Schoell, Cyclone’s CEO and inventor of the engine. “We feel that we have advanced modern steam technology for motive and small-scale power applications further than anyone else in the field.”
Cyclone Power Technologies is the developer of the award-winning Cyclone Engine – an eco-friendly external combustion engine with the power and versatility to run everything from portable electric generators and garden equipment to cars, trucks and locomotives. Invented by company founder and CEO Harry Schoell, the patented Cyclone Engine is a modern day steam engine, ingeniously designed to achieve high thermal efficiencies through a compact heat-regenerative process, and to run on virtually any fuel - including bio-diesels, syngas or solar - while emitting fewer greenhouse gases and irritating pollutants into the air. Currently in its late stages of development, the Cyclone Engine was recognized by Popular Science Magazine as the Invention of the Year for 2008, and was presented with the Society of Automotive Engineers’ AEI Tech Award in 2006 and 2008. Additionally, Cyclone was recently named Environmental Business of the Year by the Broward County Environmental Protection Department. For more information, visit www.cyclonepower.com.
