Cyclonic Combustion Chamber successfully undergoes first tests

The Mark V cyclonic combustion chamber produced by Cyclone Power Technologies for high power, fuel efficient applications has undergone a successful round of testing
Cyclone Power Technologies has successfully performed the first round of tests on its patented cyclonic combustion chamber for its heat regenerative, external combustion engine.

These tests, performed on the Company’s recently-completed model Mark V combustion chamber, demonstrated the efficient atomization of diesel fuel through six proprietary injectors, and the combustion of that fuel under atmospheric pressure in a circular, cyclonic pattern creating over 970,000 BTU of heat. The thermal energy created in under five seconds is more than sufficient to power Cyclone’s Mark V Engine, which can generate over 100 HP and 860 ft lbs of starting torque on the first rotation of its pistons. The Mark V is being developed for automotive and electric power generation applications.

“We are pleased with the performance of our combustion chamber and fuel atomizers,” stated Harry Schoell, CEO of Cyclone. “Our next step is to combine the combustion chamber with the Mark V Engine, which is currently being tested on pressurized air.” The Company expects to complete this process in early 2010.

With the chamber cover attached, the top of the engine where fuel combustion occurs is safe from open flames and cool to the touch.
