  • Patent number: 7047893
    Abstract: As taught herein, an incinerator system that directly eliminates the undesirable and harmful pollution of any gases vented or exhausted to open air. The system utilizes a fuel injector system that is used to dispense gaseous or atomized fuel of almost any type and inject the fuel into the combustion chamber. The fuel injector system disperses the gaseous or atomized fuel within the combustion chamber. Once the gaseous or atomized fuel is in the combustion chamber, it is then ignited. A controller senses the operational parameters of the incinerator system to control fresh air, ignition and fuel supply to start the system and maintain proper operating temperatures within the incinerator system so as to optimize the combustion efficiency and energy economy of the pollution abatement incinerator system.

  • Patent number: 6439097
    Abstract: A missile system includes a launcher having a built-in pulse power source and an electrical connection to a missile. The pulse power source is used to send activation and firing pulses to the missile. The pulse power source utilizes a piezoelectric crystal which produces a pulse of energy when struck by a spring-loaded hammer that is released by an operator. In one version, a first piezoelectric crystal produces a first pulse to activate the system when struck by a first hammer, and a second piezoelectric crystal produces a second pulse to fire the missile when struck by a second hammer. The energy pulses are conducted from the launcher to the missile through an inductive coupling between a primary induction coil in the launcher and a facing secondary induction coil in the missile.

  • Patent number: 5572866
    Abstract: The pollution abatement incinerator system removes pollutants effectively, efficiently and economically from a flow of exhaust gases. The system will virtually eliminate compounds such as oxides of nitrogen, hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, odors and organic and inorganic particulates from the exhaust gases of internal combustion engines or other sources of combustion. The resonant incinerator directly eliminates the undesirable and harmful pollution of the exhaust. A recuperator, preferably with two stages is incorporated into the system for efficiently capturing and reusing heat from the incinerator to simultaneously heat fresh air being forced through the recuperator and into the incinerator. A fuel converter is used to vaporize fuel of almost any type and inject the vaporized fuel into a ring injector within the incinerator. The ring injector disperses the vaporized fuel within incinerator. The vaporized fuel in the incinerator chamber is then ignited.

  • Patent number: 5381660
    Abstract: An engine exhaust reburner system including an engine for generating exhaust gases and a reburner for igniting and decomposing the exhaust gases. The reburner includes a combustion chamber and a manifold for mixing a volume of air with the exhaust gases and delivering an exhaust gas-air mixture to the combustion chamber. An igniter is provided for igniting the mixture in the combustion chamber with the ignited mixture being decomposed to provide an output gas comprised of fundamental elements. The output gas is then vented to atmosphere through a muffler. In a preferred embodiment, the engine exhaust reburner system of the present invention includes an inlet manifold which receives engine exhaust gases from a smoothing tank and compressed air from a compressor to form an exhaust gas-air mixture. The mixture is forced into an insulated combustion chamber and, if necessary, combined with an injected combustible liquid fuel for ignition.

  • Patent number: 5313789
    Abstract: A low noise power plant (100) for providing thrust to a missile (102) having a solid fuel propellant (104) for generating a pressurized gas. A turbine (106) converts the pressurized gas to rotary motion and a drive shaft (108) transfers the rotary motion to a load (110). In a preferred embodiment, the power plant (100) is utilized to drive a projectile (102). A solid fuel stick (104) located within a combustion chamber (112) is ignited and burned to provide pressurized gas which is directed to the turbine (106) via an exhaust tube (114). The pressurized gas is at a relatively low pressure and volume which minimizes the generation of noise. The turbine (106) and the drive shaft (108) are each rotated by the pressurized gas. The gases expelled from the turbine (106) are near atmospheric pressure which further minimizes the generation of noise. The power of the rotating drive shaft (108) can be converted to useful power by a speed reduction gearbox (140).
