Evaporative Refrigerator

Evaporative Refrigerator

A group of students from the University of Calgary have developed a simple evaporative refrigerator. It was inspired by the way that animals and insects keep themselves cool.

Warm air from the surroundings is funneled into a pipe network to evaporate water moisture, which carries heat away from the air. Once the air is cooled, it moves into the chamber where the food is kept. The only power requirement to bring the temperature down to 4C is to power a small fan to move this cool air, which can be done with a very small battery setup powered by a small solar panel.  The refrigerator still works with no electricity but works best with the fan.

The Lord’s Pump Project by Al Throckmorton

Ram Pumps can pump water to a decent height powered by nothing other than the movement of the water that its sitting in. Yes, it is a true free energy pump since we don’t have to pay for energy to run it, but it has its limitations. The volume of water that it moves is not very much and there is a limit to the height.

This is where Al Throckmorton’s development in this area not only shines, but completely reinvents the ram pump into something that was never thought possible.

The pump consists of a chamber of water filled to a certain height while electrolyzed water gas fills the area above the water. There are two check valves to water can go into the chamber from one direction and leave the chamber in another direction. When there is enough water gas in the area above the water, a plasma ignition is triggered, which ignites the water gas and this creates a very high pressure explosion that pushes the water through the output check valve at over 200 psi!

A pressure relief valve then opens to release that pressure so more water can flow into it from the input check valve and the cycle repeats. This allows water to be pushed up to great heights under great pressure at a very high efficiency and the implications are profound.

Here is one of the old prototypes blasting water into the air with this process:

Al Throckmorton gives an excellent presentation where he not only shows a lot of videos with tests of his pump but also some papers published with some very remarkable information about increasing gas production from water. Get a copy here: http://hhopump.com
