Quieter Hyper-Axial Flow Wheel or Impeller (peripheral tunnel propeller)    

An impeller or wheel that moves a fluid avoiding liquefying or centrifugation of the fluid, also provides quieter, stronger and safer operation.

Overview

The peripheral tunnel propeller provides hyper axial flow action, as unexpected property allowing to move fluids without induce centrifugal movement neither turbulence. This special characteristic allows new possibilities specially on pumps requiring minimal induced turbulence (as high pressure rocket pumps), on applications as Rocket Engines (replacing the HP pumps), or specific chemical application requiring to move fluids gently.

Also for biomedical/biotech applications this feature is specially important because this technology allow to move or assist fluid on living beings (also live fluids as bacteria cultives), since this solution actually doesn't liquefy the fluids or centrifugate it.

Beyond this features, obviously operates quieter than any other propeller at least 3db lower, this design is intrinsically strong and safer since it presents a constant external surface to foreign objects, also the design allows stronger constructions with materials/techniques not feasible on bladed propellers, indeed allowing new manufacturing methods as 3D print manufacturing on very large propulsors.

Unexpected Properties: depending on the Spiral defining the circular chambers path, this propeller works fully axial only, or almost only centrifugal force and minimal axial flow, allowing application as enhanced accelerated gravity particle separator.

Primary Application of the Technology

Propellers
Fans
Rocket Turbo Pumps
Vacuums, Biotech
Heart Assist devices
Turbines

The Problem Solved by the Technology

Avoid Induced Fluid Turbulence and Liquefaction, the same time allows using 3-D print and materials exotic or not, feasible for certain applications (as large vessel propellers).

How the Technology Solves the Problem

By confining the fluid into peripheral tunnels which cross sections is almost perfect circular in plane perpendicular to the rotational axis, so the fluid doesn't face changes on the chamber shape since its the same at any rotational angle, this way only the axial component is transfered to the fluids, as consequence no turbulence is induced, also no parasite centrifugal action is induced (if desired could be induced controlled centrifugal action).

Competitive Advantage

Quieter Operation
Non-Centrifugal action (Hyper Axial flow)
Exotic Materials allows plastic 3-D print on large parts as Marine Ship Propellers.
Avoids turbulence
Non Liquefying operation.

Comments on Deal Structure, Potential Terms and Restrictions

I'm the sole Inventor/owner of the invention, I'm looking primarily licensor on specific markets out of my natural reach, as Rocket Engines or Biomedical Industry, other markets as Ship Propellers also, I reserve consumer applications as fans and vacuums for my own business line. Of course, if a very good compensation representative of the royalties along the patent term is offered I could consider to assign the patent and related applications to a new owner.

I'm primarily targeting exclusive and non-exclusive licensing on specific markets, with some lump sum as royalties advance from practicing entities. As an inventor developer, I want to avoid the IP Asset being part of an NPE portfolio, this is not the business model I want pursue. However, I am also a proactive business man, and if the economical compensation is true representative of the Royalties I foresee from this invention, I could agree on any kind of entity to be owner of this IP asset. My ideal goal is to license to industry leaders, and see this technology spread.

The seller would like to be granted a license back.

Frequently Asked Questions

Allows 3-D print?
YES, for both quick prototyping and production, conventional Cast production also allowed.

Do You Use Special CAD for this?
YES, Special CAD tool is provided, so optimal .STL files can be generated quickly.

Patented?
YES, USA Only. Plus other Applications on improvements and solutions to related challenges are filled, more info on this with NDA.

Additional Information

Limited Testing NDA is available to allow interested parts to actually test this solution performance, I would provide the .stl files so experimental propellers (pumps/vacuums) can be made by 3-d print at the remote location for testing purposes, specific detailed work as know-how part of the technology transfer may require my personal relocation to the USA, so interested party may be required to request the specific Visa.
