With a unique, towards economy and ecology oriented design, the AEQUEO thermal eco-engine brings together for the first time all the known and proven conditions for improving the efficiency of thermal engines, with the advantages of reduced fuel consumption and reduced pollutant and CO2 emissions. Simple, comprising only a small number of parts, subject in addition to low mechanical stresses, achieving a perfect balance of forces and moving masses, and avoiding any technological sophistication, it is also more compact, light and advantageous than any other heat engine. Offering conditions of reliability and a service life comparable to those of a conventional heat engine (sealing of the chambers, lubrication of moving parts, cooling), it is also easy to assemble and maintain.
4 conditions of heat engine efficiency are brought together for the first time in the AEQUEO sustainable eco-engine: 1. Optimal combustion conditions, 2. Dual chamber geometry (implementation of the Atkinson principle), 3. Variable compression , 4. Free sliding of the pistons.
The innovative drive of the pistons by central cam and rockers, instead of the traditional drive by crankshaft and connecting rods, gives the thermal eco-engine the qualities described above, which the conventional thermal engine does not generally have. Qualities that make it both more efficient (reduction in consumption and nuisance) and more effective (reduction in weight, size and costs).
At equal performance, the weight, size, cost, fuel consumption, pollutant emissions and CO2 emissions of the AEQUEO thermal eco-engine are reduced by 30-40% compared to those of the conventional thermal engine. 2010.
