|This is a historical perspective of our work, to date. This covers the time of International Turbine & Power, LLC inception in 1999 to early 2014
Our most recent Tesla Turbine design, from 2012, is a high speed 7″ Tesla Turbine, based on Tesla’s original 1911 US Patent, is complete and operational in a Solar Steam Power System. The unit is rated at 20 KW nominal, and operates at 28,000 RPM. The unit now carries both a system patent and a series of individual patents. System efficiency has hit a staggering 85% +/- 1% and carries full 3rd party engineering validation, testing and documentation.
Bladeless Turbine Patent, Germano, Dorantes, Bohl – AUG 13 2013
This unique turbine was designed for Solar Logic, Inc, and is successfully clearing its US Patent application. Back to the story… The 2011/2012/2013 Solar Logic Tesla Turbine was a Solar Steam powered dynamo, using low temperature, low pressure steam as the motive fluid, and has exceeded all of our expectations. Now US Patented, we eagerly look forward to commercial markets. Our engineering concentrations center around designing novel systems based on Bladeless Disk, Vortex and Implosion Technologies.
Our turbines, pumps and power systems are based on Nikola Tesla’s and Viktor Schauberger’s original designs. Our prototype units have confirmed historical claims from Tesla and Schauberger, and, in our opinion (and third-party testing and validations), have become the “most simple rotary engines” yet designed. We have improved on Tesla’s original design by incorporating the vortex and implosion designs pioneered by Viktor Schauberger.
To paraphrase Tesla; “Suppose someone should discover a new mechanical principle…something as fundamental as James Watt’s discovery of the expansive power of steam, by the use of which it became possible to build a motor that would give ten horse power for every pound of the engine’s weight? A motor so simple that a novice in mechanics could construct it and so elemental that it could not possibly get out of repair. Then suppose that this motor could be run forward or backward at will, that it could be used as either an engine or a pump, that it cost almost nothing to build as compared with any other known form of engine, that it utilized a larger percentage of the available power than any existing machine, and, finally, that it would operate with gas, steam, compressed air or water, any one of them, as its driving power…” Quote, Nikola Tesla, 1911.
Frank Germano, is now concentrating his research work on several distinct product lines: The Tesla Turbines & Pumps, Our vortex/implosion based InVAID engine, Water-powered Schauberger-based power plants, and, Schauberger’s Repulsine and Klimator.
Global Energy Technologies, has designed the next generation of powerful, efficient implosion engines and pumping systems.
|We call this revolutionary engine, a “thermodynamic transformer” or BDT as this is a more proper name for the device; the Tesla, Bladeless Boundary Disk Turbine – was originally developed in the early 1900’s. These engines, powered by compressed air, powered by steam, or any combustible fuel, such as methane, natural gas, propane, gasoline, diesel, or hydrogen, or even flowing water from rivers or from an ocean’s tides, offer an incredible advantage over conventional IC engines. They are inexpensive, extremely efficient, require virtually no maintenance, and will run in environments where other engines, would, quite simply – fail. The Tesla Turbine and Tesla Pump function on the principles of adhesion and viscosity, or boundary layer drag. The Tesla Turbine itself, is a very simple device, consisting of basically, a number of very thin disks, mounted on a shaft, with their centers cut out in sections…this assembly is then enclosed in an air tight case. Pure simplicity.Such a machine is a thermodynamic transformer of an activity surpassing, by far, that of any other prime mover, it being demonstrated in practice that each single disk (i.e. this is why it is called bladeless) of the rotor is capable of performing as much work as a whole bucket-wheel of a conventional turbine. Besides, a number of other advantages, equally important, make it especially adapted for operation as an internal combustion motor. Please note: the turbine is nothing more than an efficient energy transformer – it is NOT an engine, in and of itself – it needs a form of motive impulse (power), i.e. steam or pressure and velocity from a combustion source – to operate.With our Thermodynamic Transformer (BDT) engine design, our Tesla/Schauberger type Pumping system – the Centrifugal Molecular Implosion Turbine ® (CMIT) , “Fresh-Cool®” Air conditioning and Heat-Pump Systems, and, our revolutionary InVAID® (Vortex Accelerated Implosion Drive) Systems , we are in a position to offer GLOBAL energy solutions. All of our systems use environmentally sensible and sustainable technology.|
Applications and Systems
“Just what is your new invention?” I asked. “I have accomplished what mechanical engineers have been dreaming about ever since the invention of steam power,” replied Dr. Tesla. “That is the perfect rotary engine…” Nikola Tesla, 1911
|As anyone who reads today’s headlines, or watches a Television newscast , one does not need to look far to realize that our Nation is in an immediate energy crisis. This is not only happening in the United States, but appears World-Wide. We have relied on outdated forms of prime movers and inefficient forms of power generation and supply for nearly a century. The technology, in the form of the original Tesla Bladeless Boundary Disk Turbine, was applicable in Tesla’s time…it is not only beneficial, but may be critical to implement this technology in OUR time!Everyone hears the buzzwords – decentralized power stations. I do not have the space here to amplify on the exact definition, however, it is quite probably the most cost effective solution to our current electrical energy situation.
Small, efficient powerhouses-in-a-hat (the term coined by the media of Tesla’s day for the Tesla Turbine) will be employed in towns, communities, groups of houses, and around large cities, augmenting the current Utilities power supply. We are in the enviable position of being quite able to assist end-consumers in this energy crisis.
The BDT engine has a weight to output horse power ratio of up to an unbelievable 10 HP per pound. It has the ability to run on almost any fuel. It is incredibly compact and lightweight. Pollution output from the exhaust of even the propane version is FAR below that of even today’s best standard engines. The system also lends itself in use as an “air to air” refrigeration system without the need for harmful Freon gasses. The engine, by its very nature of operation is perfectly suited to Turbo/Electric applications.
The BDT engine is unequaled in it’s simplicity and output, far exceeding any other conventional engine to date. Where things really become interesting is when we combine the technology of the Tesla Turbine with that of Schauberger’s Repulsine.
Through our R&D and reverse-engineering of the Tesla Turbine, we noted several similarities to the historical archives regarding Schauberger’s IMPLOSION engine – the Repulsine. Since our work began in this direction in 2001, I can state that an operational implosion engine can and will become a commercial application. The basic difference in design of the Repulsine, vs. that of the Tesla Turbine is the shape of the disk pack. Schauberger used a wavy plate format for his disks, whereas Tesla’s disks were flat and smooth. Our work in this area has proven that Schauberger’s implosion engine – the Repulsine, is capable of 227 times more power output when compared to the same size conventional Turbine. Why? IMPLOSION! Our work continues.
This amazing engine is called – InVAID.What may be the solution to our current energy crisis? Wave, hydro or rather – Ocean Power. Harnessing the power of the Earth’s oceans is quite easily achieved. The benefits? A totally independent, inexhaustible power supply. The United States would be afforded complete energy independence, and be converted to a nearly 100% electrically driven economy. Totally non-polluting electrical energy, supplied directly from our coastline Ocean’s waves. All of our factories – converted to electrical power. All of our automobiles and trucks and transportation – converted to clean, electric drive vehicles. All of our homes – converted to electric. Makes perfect sense. Does anyone reading this like the possibility of paying $5.00 per gallon for gasoline??? It’s coming, so be prepared.
So what is the most sensible, most economical, and simplest way to overcome an oil driven, fossil fuel economy, and eliminate the stranglehold of mega-business oil industry??? Follow a few simple steps:
Now it’s all up to people that care. We’ve got zillionaire rock stars, movie stars, sports stars, and businessmen, all of whom could easily fund any of these projects with pocket change. The line starts at the front door.
