Steves Projects: this seems similar to a split cycle engine
well done very clever !
hans zarkov: If you slapped a propeller on a larger version, stuck some wheels on it and
got the contraption going 20+ mph with peddle power... adding wings might
get you airborne.
matt .r: great design and great application.
VideosWorthSpreading: I wonder if this would be more efficient than Angelo Dipietro's compressed
air engine design.
Mitch Sandoe: Air Rectifier! Oh that's genius! Yay analogies! Is the concept of a fluid
flow rectifier much more common than I'm thinking it is? I only know of
rectifiers in an electrical context. Good on you JEPLANS! Now make a
kinematic marvel that draws pretty symmetric things!
DoNotPushHere: The integrated piston valve can be further developed... I had a similar
design before watching this. Mine didn't work on vacuum (didn't intend to)
but the trick was to drill on the piston: a side hole, and a bottom hole,
communicating; and on the cylinder two side holes: one on apogee for
exhaust, and of course one on the lowest point of the side hole of the
piston. Thus, it works like a pop valve engine, but without any spring.
Gotta make a video of that
Anyway I love your work...it's very encouraging, since I don't have any
lathe or table drill. Just a couple of simple tools
Eugene Syvyk: I think it would be great if you could scale it up, and put it on a
bicycle. You would still need to pedal, but you'd have much more smooth
acceleration, and much more smooth cadence on your legs.
el xero: very nice, but since I kno wnothing about this sort of thing what is it's
ever grou: esto era lo q yo queria hacer en una ciudad hay tanta energia q se
desperdicia dia dia en llos lugares publicos en las pistas y calles
hay mucha energia q se pierdes y este es justo el modelo q yo pensaba
para generar energia
HUCHEMS119: Cool design. Look like the steam engine from Cyclone Power Technologies.
DONFREDO: Brilliant and ingenious. What does it do ?
Dmitry Demin: Интересный двигатель с пневматический/гидравлической системой
"газораспределения" - т.е. без коленчатого вала.
darryl barton: I would like to see this adapted to a vehicle drive train. Cool
uni000ver000sal: When is the large scale model coming out?
I bet you need a compressor for the larger model.
You need a combustion engine to power the compressor.
Why not use the combustion engine instead?
joaquin holman: this looks so weird
Lyndon Pedersen: Clever work. Well done!
Faisal Almalki: The pedal design is genius, would be useful in my opinion to operate a
lathe, but is sure has alot of good uses!
Windu Hernowo: Nice, will you please upload your air flow directions, so we can understand
the basic ?
Сергей Горбачев: Ну и нах! это надо?
7NtKazze: Reminds me of Gyo
ArchangelLightTech: Marty! come over here!
Mick Anderson: Beautiful to watch, but what's the point ?
stewiecasserole: Bullcrap you made this.....you just pulled it out of your R-Spec Honda
Karmijn Hendriks: As someone with Restless Leg Syndrome, i laughed very hard. You actually
could power the world with that :P
anttt69: lolz, you must be slightly dumb. 100% efficiency is not possible (on earth)
due to obvious reasons.
Balasubramaniam Ts: hi ,jecket maybe this air engine can be fitted in a two/three wheeler and
powered by air hydraulic foot pump (check streetstrider on youtube ,mayb
ellliptical foot can be fitted int he vehicle which power teh air hydraulic
foot pump which in turn is connected to the air engine which in turn powers
MrHuskerOne: Would your hand be considered the engine since it is producing all the
Kim Jong Il: why don't you people mention the process involves "recruiting" hundreds of
people through youtube? Google "pyramid scheme"
Eli Witz: I watched this video while taking a dump. Um, I'll give this one a like I
bptryp: what rotary engine has pistons?
JEPLANS: Maybe, they certainly should hold up better. When kids/people see it they
want to run over and pump the bellows as hard as they can to see how fast
it will go. Without reinforcement on the folds the paper bellows bulge and
cave under the stress making them useless. I can't fault anyone for doing
this because that would be my reaction too.
JEPLANS: Sure 16 would be possible, any even number would work. Sets of 4 are best.
Check out my "Inline 4 RPM Tests” video it has the same piston dimensions
in a different layout. It’s faster because of a smaller fly wheel. I am not
sure running on a continuous basis directly from an air compressor would
have much point. But as part of a stored energy recovery system it might. I
hope to have time this summer to rig it up with a scooter and a HPA Paint
Ball tank, just for fun.
XxiconicalxX: turbo decreases fuel and replaces it with compressed air . this is why you
"save gas money" and what do you mean directly? umm its pretty DIRECT
(negative) pressure on a exhaust causes cylinder lag to decrease causing
direct extra 5 hp at the least
Delve Spectrum: You gave up on "Stirling's Engine" for that.
Mike Peine: Surf my site its FREE information on how to build 9 FREE ENERGY DEVICES i
sell NOTHING. We have NOT needed fuel since 1829. any ?'s Thank You. Great
Jerkwaad: simple to you, but not me. Respect.
luis ernesto: hand power hahaha!
shep seldon: the engine lacks torque
TheGreeny3003: wait did you actually invent that awesome thing...... WTF WOW
yksnimus: say youd pump the air with your feet, would it generate more power then the
power generate pedaling a bike?
Danield439439: Actually, a turbo extracts exhaust gas heat by (expanding the air) via
turbine and turns it into shaft work. That work is used to drive a
compressor impeller (same shaft). The impeller draws in ambient air
(through a filter), does work on it (heats it up) and compresses it. Now
that compressed air is forced into the intake. The compression ratio has
increased, so has engine power! You will typically see inner-coolers before
the intake which extracts heat prior to intake. More power!
Harry Tyrkalo: Paul again Vs. to air would hydraulic cylinders be much more powerful? If
you took 2 10 ton jack for example, to have just 2 cylinders, like the the
old style John Dear tractors running on 2 cylinders, and had it running @
60 rpm look at the torque you would have for greater hp. These cylinders
would require a hydraulic pump that could run continuos on less than 10 Hp.
Can you see the advantage? Has any-one tried this system. Paul
Bill Bennett: that is awesome! regarding a power supply may I suggest a bag and bellows
setup of the type used in Northumbrian and Uilleann bagpipes - easy enough
to make and you end up with a fairly constant pressure :-)
