S-RAM Semi-Free Piston engine prototype
We are currently building a purpose-built engine with multi-fuel
capabilities and utmost power density for stationary and portable power applications.
We believe this engine will represent a low cost and high performance solution and will have an immediate market niche for both
commercial and military applications. This state-of-the-art engine takes advantage of all of the unique advantages of the S-RAM mechanism.
The S-RAM technology substantially eliminates piston side loads, reduces bearing friction and substantially reduces the number of parts. In this double-ended configuration, the combustion/inertia loading of the common piston cancels over 50% of the mechanical loading on the S-RAM crank, thereby resulting in a "Semi-Free Piston" mode of operation. The S-RAM Semi-Free Piston axial engine will represent the highest form of mechanical efficiency, durability and power density. The prototype will be ready for demonstration in March, 2013.
