Axial Vector Energy Corp.’s mission is the development of low-cost, clean, and efficient energy technologies, making optimum use of chemical and electrical energy. Below are some of their recent activities and accomplishments. It’s interesting to note that these products were designed with the same sophisticated programs used by Boeing to design Jumbo Jets.
• New Diesel / Multi-Fuel Engines
Axial has now completed performance test trials on their prototype 8-cylinder, 352 HP diesel and multi-fuel engine, which produces 1,140 ft-lbs of torque. With a torque per horse-power that is 75% greater than an equivalent displacement Caterpillar diesel engine, and greatly reduced wear, the engine offers significant operational benefits. For example, a truck using this engine could expect to travel some 2 million miles before requiring an overhaul.
As part of this, they have successfully demonstrated multiple firing and operation of the engine using palm oil, the first ever commercially viable power train using a non-fossil fuel energy source. This represents a huge new market for the company.
• New Generators
Axial is in the final stages of testing their unique 100 KW prototype, coreless, axial flux, and permanent magnet generator, for converting rotational motion to electricity. Instead of using large internal coils of copper wire like most generators, the system uses only rare-earth permanent magnets, resulting in a generation efficiency of up to 98%.
• New Gensets
A GENSET is a combination of a fuel powered engine and an electric generator, able to convert chemical energy into electricity. Axial has seamlessly integrated their new diesel / multi-fuel engine with their 100 KW coreless generators, creating one of the most efficient GENSETS on the planet. The system uses advanced digital controls, and is capable of producing a wide range of desired voltages for virtually any application.
• New Electric Motors
An electric motor is basically a generator run in reverse. Instead of turning mechanical motion into electricity, it turns electricity into mechanical motion. A 100 KW generator can also be used as a 133 HP electric motor. But most electric motor applications require less power output. Conversely, a ½ HP electric motor can be used as a 375 watt generator. But most generator applications require more energy output. The need is for a system that can efficiently span a range of energy and power requirements.
Axial has created a new product line of small ultra-efficient electric motors spanning a wide range of HP output. This range, together with their very low operating costs, between 35% and 55% lower than standard electric motors, make them useful for all sorts of industrial and residential applications. The size of the potential market becomes clear when you realize that the average American home has at least 5 electric motors.
