Prototype

Over the years several prototypes were constructed with the first prototype(s) attempted bearing fruitful results. Copious notes and all early documentation, research, and sketches/drawings were saved for future reference. The first prototype proved interesting, although no temperature difference was achieved. However, it yielded important results. It proved the reverse airflow down the center of the main vortex was real and created a centralized vacuum.
 
The second prototype received adjustments and a complete redesign. A 3 degree temperature difference was created in both directions instantly. At that point, a “Proof of Concept” was obtained. The ‘vortex tube phenomena’ that was replicated could also be produced at slower rpm speeds within the self-contained spin chamber and baffle tubes positioned correctly.
 
The third prototype achieved a 6 degree temperature difference in both directions. A standard HVAC system only needs a 20 degree total spread to be able to heat and cool a home. (60F-80F degrees)
 
We have learned new exciting discoveries in our physical and computer animated prototypes and most of it is our intellectual property. We are limited in what we can show and you will not be able to zoom in on these images. At this point, a “Proof of Concept” allows this novel innovation to advance to the next level by means of CAD and fluid motion prototyping. We switched out prototyping to the advance design stage by using computer aided design. We have all the CAD files we need to assemble a team and completely optimize and build what is shown in the explainer video. We are ready to proceed forward and we need your support.

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

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

The name of this innovation is Ducted Vortex Heating and Cooling System. A full utility patent has been submitted with a provisional application filed a year prior. An international patent application (PCT) is also being sought.

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 and principal investigator, 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.

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

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 proven, 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.
