A wall with vacuum tubes backed by salt and a lens focusing the sun and a
mirror (or micro lens ) behind the wall arranged similarly with vacuum
tubes and salt producing from a water boiler stem to drive a tesla
bladeless turbine and a dc electrical motor ? Totally doable ..RIght ?! Dr.?
Not sure I understand the application of such a vacuum flask as a boiler.
In order to use the steam, it has to be under pressure. It’s the pressure
which drives a piston, which turns a generator shaft. However, you say in
the video you can’t put the lid on the flask because it’ll just turn into a
bomb (presumably from the pressure build-up. What use is such a glass
container that can’t withstand useful pressure? Boilers may lose heat
(though professional ones are also insulated) but they are made out of
metal so they can withstand high pressure, which is what they essentially
output for energy. Am I missing something?
been thinking about using this as a replacement for nuclear power since
like 2001, nice to see a proof of concept, never thought of steel wool! I
strongly encourage anybody with the wherewithall to find a turbine and an
Hi Dan. So far I love all your videos. There’s always some good info in
You mentioned the stores putting candles under the tea maker. I think that,
if nothing else, they’re getting people to buy the candles which pumps up
their sales volume.
Keep it up. I love this stuff. I wish I had your resources.
The water boils rapidly because your only heating a small fraction of the
water, the water nearest the glass. For a given volume and radiant energy,
the Chinese tubes are probably more absorptive of the sun’s rays while not
concurrently having to heat the steel wool which caries much less thermal
energy than water.
