Wanderport Files Patent Application Raising the Bar for Innovation and Performance Within the Water Heater Industry
Wednesday, June 16, 2010
New York, NY -- Wanderport Corp. (PINKSHEETS: WDRP) announced today that its prudent analysis, testing and re-evaluation has spawned a new innovative patent for the microwave energy tank-less water heater which it feels will set the bar for performance and innovation standards in the industry.
The new patent application comprises a unique heat exchanger using radio frequency and particularly microwaves as an energy source. We believe that this new method will revolutionize the water heater industry and provide Wanderport's shareholders with additional value as this enormous breakthrough will enhance the microwave water heater's efficiency and provide an easier method to manufacture a more compact unit. This new Patent now provides a radio frequency energy exchanger that makes efficient use of microwave energy and its conversion into heat within a flowing liquid and is compact so that it may accommodate residential, commercial, and industrial heating applications.
Through his recent analysis, Mr. Robert Simoneau, Wanderport's Technical Advisor and product inventor, has discovered that conventional microwave heat exchangers suffer from reduced efficiency due, in part, to the irregular wave pattern emitted from the magnetron resulting in inefficient energy transfer or coupling. Mr. Simoneau has also discovered that previous attempts at addressing these inefficiencies inevitably resulted in a relatively large heat exchanger design that incorporated one or a series of fluid conductive tubes within a cavity or resonant chamber. Instead, the new patent comprises a system and method for microwave energy transfer that uses a dimensionally defined chamber calculated to offer efficient energy transfer through the use of both molecular friction of the flowing medium and thermal transfer from the adjacent magnetrons into the volume of the liquid. This new heat exchanger makes use of a defined and optimized chamber that enables for an efficient energy transfer in the form of heat into a continuously flowing liquid medium. Significantly, the Invention eliminates the use of microwave-transparent tubing in favor of a combined waveguide and energy exchange chamber.
The new energy exchanger consists of a dimensionally optimized water-tight chamber whose determining characteristics are in part that its interior walls are constructed of non-conductive and/or rust resistant materials capable of withstanding thermal stress while the chamber incorporates at least one inlet and one outlet. Said chamber's outer body is constructed of materials that will prevent the permeation of radio waves and its walls are constructed to reduce the formation of standing waves. An additional improvement is supplied by allowing for an efficient thermal coupling between the magnetron(s) and the exterior housing of the exchanger. The energy exchanger is designed for the purpose of heating water and continued analysis unexpectedly produced pleasing results. The energy exchanger was not only at least equal in efficiency to conventional inline serpentine or helical microwave heat exchangers but also significantly smaller in size making it capable of operating solely or in tandem with additional similar energy exchangers within single or multiple housings. Advantageously, the energy exchanger may also operate in tandem with dissimilar energy exchangers such as solar capture arrays or gas operated units thereby paving the way for a host of other hybrid water heating applications.
"The use of microwaves to heat water is well known. Building a commercially desirable unit is almost as elusive as the search for the Holy Grail. Consumers are not only demanding (with respect to performance) but, in today's challenging environment, the perception of value is ever more important. I am positively delighted with this innovative and unique approach as it addresses both of these issues in a positive and significant way," said Mr. Richard Martel, President and CEO of Wanderport Corporation.
"I think we've dramatically advanced product development with this improvement, as it is a game-changer," said Mr. Robert Simoneau, Wanderport's Technical Advisor and Product Licensor. "We've demonstrated success in efficient energy transfer not only from the magnetron but also through the water cooled array and, most recently, the use of the actual chamber as part of the heat sink for the magnetrons. We have simultaneously taken into account some of the previously limiting form factor requirements and made great strides at improving upon their embodiment. What I find to be particularly exciting is how this will likely play out as we move to continue to cost-engineer the product," continued Mr. Robert Simoneau. This new patent application demonstrates Wanderport's continued unwavering commitment, as we draw near to completion of a pre-launch microwave energy tankless water heater unit capable of successfully undergoing the certification process, with the purpose of significantly outperforming existing products within this multi-billion dollar industry.
