Prototype

Hot and Cold Air On-Demand

Introduction

It is a pleasure to introduce myself as the founding inventor of the Ducted Vortex Heating and Cooling System. My name is Robert Wajda, and the primary focus of this project is to make the world a better place for everyone. We need to raise capital to fund the market-ready version of a unique green technology that could potentially create ripple effects across the world. We have just completed the fourth prototype (DV-4) and we are one prototype away from a market-ready version. 

What is it?

 

The Ducted Vortex is a natural Heating and Cooling System that uses Eco-Friendly Green Technology that has no adverse negative effects on the environment. In comparison to modern HVAC Systems, this innovation has eliminated the need for a compressor, heating elements, and all refrigerants.  This is done by creating a self-contained vortex that separates the high and low pressure to create hot and cold air on-demand. This net-zero compliant innovation has been simplified to exist with very few moving parts and is scalable to any size.

The specifications of the Ducted Vortex Heating and Cooling System are not limited to only this type of application. We have versions in the works that can heat and cool homes, factories, warehouses, boats, and automobiles. It is completely scalable to any size imaginable. (See alternate commercial applications below)

Scalable Technology for Future Applications

We are starting on a home unit that can be installed in a window or wall. In the market-ready version, there will be a digital controller that controls the entire machine automatically with smartphone technology or advanced remote control. Once we complete the window/wall unit, we will work on the future applications above. 

Why do we need your support?

The concept from the beginning (the early development stage) was recognized as having enormous potential by contributing to so many positive levels of environmental and humanistic standards of concern. With proper funding, this innovation alone could improve the lives of millions of people in their personal spheres of daily life. This can be accomplished because the system does not need much operating power.

 

The drive to bring the Ducted Vortex Heating and Cooling System to fruition was founded upon compassion for those who will benefit most – The Social and Economic Statuses That Are Most Strained Economically and Environmentally. In developing countries, there are major problems with health, hunger, disease, and poverty. 

 

In every prototype, proof of concept has already been proven. The time Is now for proper first-round funding to advance this innovation into the next age of humanity that contributes to the dual factors of social economic and environmental concerns alike.  Even though we can’t offer market-ready versions to purchase, we have some fantastic rewards where you can come out with something nice and support this project at the same time. 

The Ducted Vortex has a sleek design that does not take up the entire window.  The technology is scalable so it can be made into any shape or size. The front of this prototype measures 12″H X 24″W and can be downsized further. Enough room is left so that maintenance on the inside in manageable. 

Hot and Cold Air On-Demand

The above video demonstrates how the Ducted Vortex alternates hot and cold air from the front of the unit to the back. When the user desires warm air in their home, the hot disperses out the front and the cold is diverted to the back. When they want to cool their home, the internal heat pump exchanger reverses the process and diverts the hot to the outside and the cold is routed to the inside.

In the end, a consumer friendly unit that provides cost effectiveness, energy savings probabilities, efficiency, practical use, reasonable maintenance and sustainability is the only path moving forward. This innovation will be considered a novel energy source of the new generation.

Market Ready Advantages

Market ready version will create a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and pollutants into the environment.

The technology uses renewable energy and has minimal use of natural resources.

The ducted fans use a low consumption of energy and have a low impact on the environment.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

The proposed system is a technology that could revolutionize the HVAC industry. With the proper funding we believe it could create a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, eliminate pollutants into the environment, and it would have a minimal use of natural resources.

Ducted fan technology in combination with an advanced rotating spin chamber creates hot and cold air on demand by creating a high-pressure self- contained vortex. Once the vortex is created, it separates the hot and cold air through a heat pump exchanger and pressurizes it for optimal use in a variety of residential and commercial applications.

Modern air conditioning was invented in the 1900’s. It is considered one of the greatest mechanical engineering inventions of the 20th century. This outdated and reliable form of air conditioning has survived the test of time for more than 100 years. New technology was almost certain to eventually emerge. The Ducted Vortex System is a viable new source of heating and cooling that warrants further research and development.

Robert Wajda, the inventor, generated the idea more than twenty years ago when reading an article about three reporters caught in a tornado. In their harrowing experience they described a significant temperature change for several seconds as the tornado passed directly above them. That is when he got the idea. Why not capture that same phenomena in a controlled setting. Vortexes are natural phenomena in the universe that are the driving force behind massive amounts of energy

Knowing there was a way to tap into this, his research led him to an invention called the Vortex Tube. This devise, invented in the 1930’s, was ruled out as too inefficient for anything other than spot heating or cooling. Wajda knew instantly how to contain a vortex of any size.

The Ducted Vortex Heating and Cooling System has the potential for large scale success. A single market ready prototype is ready to be created.

Moisture and Weather Studies: Testing needs to be investigated in different environments. (i.e. 110 degrees vs 10 degrees, humid air vs dry air)

Drafting: Continued design and enhancement of innovation.

This innovation is technically attainable due to a simplified approach. The streamline design allows optimal performance once honed correctly. Minimal use of complicated parts is considered, while limited moving parts reduces technical risks as well. Lastly, the final product (hot and cold air) is generated and conditioned from the ambient air in the atmosphere. Achievable solutions will be further developed as phase one continues to progress. As questions arise, technical adjustments can be performed without productivity and/or materials being considered a loss.

Creating (case) studies and experiments directed towards a deeper vision of this innovation to improve it’s untapped potential. Once a market ready version is completed, it’s underlying impact on the commercial market will be substantial. Positive economic growth will spur through a growing new industry, while also supporting a greener solution to heating and cooling living and working places. This innovation is a protected interest that will focus on US manufacturing and job creation such as: Manufacturing, logistics, sales, technicians, maintenance, and even jobs unforeseen yet. We genuinely feel R&D on the Ducted Vortex Heating and Cooling System will be a great contribution to science and society.

The Ducted Vortex HVAC system is a Green Eco-Friendly Technology that has no net adverse effect on the environment. We have eliminated the need for a compressor and all refrigerants by creating a contained vortex and separating the high and low pressure to create hot and cold air on demand.
