U.S. PTO Grants Eighth Patent on Key Component of Cyclone Power Technologiesí Green Engine
Thursday, November 11, 2010
Pompano Beach, FL -- Cyclone Power Technologies (Pink Sheets: CYPW) announced today that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted the company’s eighth patent on its heat-regenerative, external combustion engine. This latest action provides protection for the crankshaft spider bearing of the award-winning Cyclone engine.
The connecting rod journals and crankshaft bearing comprise an integral component to virtually all models of Cyclone’s 21st century steam engines. The invention allows six-pistons arranged in radial format to move in perfect balance, something that was not achievable in radial engines of the past which utilized master rods. A radial format engine, in turn, provides more efficient and effective heat distribution, which dramatically increases the power density of the Cyclone engine. The ability to generate a substantial amount of power in a small package is what makes the Cyclone engine ideal for applications such as automobiles, trucks and busses.
“The spider bearing is a key innovation that has commercial possibilities outside just our engines,” stated Cyclone’s CEO, Harry Schoell. “As an R&D company, we’re always pleased to receive protection for our intellectual property, which makes up some of the most important assets for our shareholders.”
