Korean Patent Approval On External Combustion Engine

Green engine from Cyclone Power Technologies gains Korean approval on issue of patent
The Korean Intellectual Property Office has issued a notice of decision to grant Cyclone Power Technologies a patent on the steam generator of its award-winning, heat regenerative external combustion engine.

The steam generator is a critical component of the eco-friendly Cyclone Engine, as it creates high thermal efficiencies within the engine from the combustion of virtually any fuel, including today’s most promising home-grown bio-fuels. The innovative design of this component creates a cyclonic circulation of gases within the engine’s combustion chamber, thus promoting greater heat saturation relative to the amount of fuel burned. It is also this unique process that gives rise to the engine’s “Cyclone” name.

“The heat transfer on this unit appears highly advanced and efficient, more than any other heat transfer unit I have studied,” stated George Nutz, a technology advisor to the company who has performed rigorous thermal and stress analysis on the steam generator. “This is very rare for such a small unit with such high heat input rates.” Mr. Nutz has almost 50 years experience working with external combustion and steam engines, including working as a staff research engineer at MIT Instrumentation Laboratory, part of the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Cyclone received its first patent in Korea in September 2009 on the total engine system. The current patent allowance marks the ninth international patent for Cyclone’s engine and components, including one covering the nations of the European Union.
