What about eliminating the mechanical drive? That’s the idea of Mr. Carlo Ormenese (AL) when, 20 years ago, he thought about an ingenious fluid rotary machine that, among its many possible uses, had also this one. He intended to put it into a vehicle in order to simplify its drive: he imagined to place a fluid engine in the middle of the car and connect it to another engine (perhaps electric); the liquid, being pushed by both the cited engine to other 4 similar engines placed over the wheels, would have created in this way a movement that, by pressing on the wheels would have made the vehicle moved. A quite original and ambitious prospect that, as presented, together with a first prototype, to the Genoa Research Centre, was not refuted. Let’s try to better understand this mechanism analysing the invention in each detail. It consists of a machine formed by a steel container divided into two half-shells, both identical and joint together. Inside them, there is a groove which marks out a well-defined course that, we’ll see, is very important. Inside this container, we find a rotating disc enlarged on its sides where a blade (formed by two identical tabs) is placed, totally free to move around the rod. By inserting a fluid or gas in the machine inlet, it pushes ahead the blade that follows the course marked in the container and, being linked by the rod to the rotating disc, makes it move, so generating a movement. This is certainly not the first type of fluid engine: few people know that, at the beginning of the 20th century, there were many projects of this kind, but they were later abandoned because they were not profitable from the energetic point of view or too much complicated and bulky. On the contrary, what we are examining now is a very simple model, of variable sizes, however not bulky, which is very profitable as it guarantees sure results. Its new characteristics are essentially two: 1) the fixed course the blade must follow with the specific purpose to avoid deadlock phases preventing the movement; 2) the easy reversibility from engine to pump and vice versa without losing its efficiency. This is therefore a simple but in the meantime complex mechanism, which, if correctly used, could give good results. Unfortunately, in Italy our 53-year-old inventor hasn’t received any tangible proposal to launch his project on an industrial scale. For this reason, he’s protected his invention by a European and US patent in order to enter foreign markets. Best wishes from our recruiting staff.
