A flashing apparatus for a geothermal power plant in which underground hot water introduced into the flashing apparatus is flashed therein to generate flashed steam is divided into a flashing chamber, a water separation chamber, a drain discharge cham...
LILJEGREN, L. KENYON
A wind turbine is disclosed comprising blade forms mounted for limited pivotal movement as they proceed around an orbital path. A torque sensitive control means is provided to progressively limit the pivotal movement of the blade forms in response to ...
RANDOLPH, ARTHUR J.
In a wind driven propeller system an airfoil support for the shaft of a propeller having an even number of blades extends above and below the shaft a distance at least equal to the blade length and pivots with the propeller into the wind for substanti...
UNITED TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION
A wind turbine of the type having an airfoil blade (15) mounted on a flexible beam (20) and a pitch governor (55) which selectively, torsionally twists the flexible beam in response to wind turbine speed thereby setting blade pitch, is provided with a...
A rotary engine has co-acting housing affixed gate and rotor-affixed runner mechanism which automatically retract so that the runners can pass through respective portions of the gate which then automatically extend and seal so that they form between r...
RIDEOUT, JR., MERLE C.
A prime mover has a tubular metal member of substantial length which, when both its exterior and its interior are subjected to a heating and cooling cycle, produces work strokes of substantial force, but too short to accomplish a wanted work. A mechan...
DAIDO METAL CO. LTD.
A connecting rod for a radial piston motor including a spherical surface portion, a rod portion and a pad portion having a sliding surface. The spherical surface portion, rod portion and pad portion are formed integrally, and the sliding surface has a...
An axial piston motor is provided having a mechanical friction brake incorporated in the driving flange, thereby maintaining the axial length of the motor the same as motors without a mechanical friction brake.
SEALE, JOSEPH B.
A fluid-driven pump directly converts fluid kinetic energy into displacement of a second fluid against a pressure differential. In one form of the invention, a wind turbine is coupled via a rotary shaft crank to a reciprocating piston in a large-displ...
