Compressors & Compressed Air Technology
The objective with compressed air technology is to implement vehicles that consume the minimum amount of energy to do an amount of work, in contrast to an internal combustion engine with its senseless idling at traffic lights; our engine has no need to do so.
Furthermore an internal combustion engine in a vehicle requires acceleration around 1500 rpm to initiate movement to the vehicle, compared with Engineair’s motor which is capable to do so at just one rpm, that is 1500 times better, this exercise is normally repeated many times in congested traffic wasting a significant amount of energy at a considerable cost to our environment.
In a perfect world every one of us should be able to afford an appropriate vehicle and the energy to power them. This is possible with Engineair technology as we can manufacture vehicles that require fewer components and therefore less weight, enabling us to transport the intended object or person with minimal energy instead of wasting huge amount of energy to power current massive vehicles.
Affordable, sustainable and non-polluting vehicles will create new employment opportunities and improved urban life style, we can produce vehicles for everyone in the world with considerable less impact on the environment, there’s no need for the vehicle to be small but just constructed more intelligently and lighter, style and comfort will still be included.
There’s definitely no need for us to accelerate to 100 km in 3 seconds, I am sure most of us will be happy to begin our journey10 second earlier and still get there at the some time.
Considering that a HP is the equivalent power of a mature horse and that statistics shown that a horse of 600 Kg is capable to reach speed of up to 88 Km h, this clearly shows that current vehicles with engines around 300 HP are just a wast of precious resources.
Based on the above you can see that with Engineair technology is possible to power a vehicle using up to 100 time less energy than current vehicles, and we can do so with out burning any fuel.
Energy loss in the form of heat while compressing air is a thing of the past
Most compressors lose that energy to the atmosphere mainly because the scale of compressing air is relatively small, however if we are compressing air on a large scale this energy can be captured economically and put to use for heating our homes, for hot water, cooking or even generating electricity.
The following comments are from Gast Manufacturing Corporation's book 'Vacuum and Pressure Systems Handbook' and it states:
"An air compressor does most of its work during the compression stroke. This adds energy to the air by increasing its pressure. Compression also generates heat, however, and the amount of work required to compress a quantity of air to a given pressure depends on how fast this heat is removed. The compression work done will lie between the theoretical work requirements of two processes:
Adiabatic: a process having no cooling, the heat remains in the air, causing a pressure rise that increases compression work requirements to a maximum value.
Isothermal: a process that provides perfect cooling, thus, there is no change in air temperature and the work required for compression is held to a minimum.”
So during the compression process, if we remove the heat from the air not only do we capture energy that would otherwise be wasted, we also move the process closer to isothermal so that it takes less energy to compress the same amount of air.
