Advances commercialization of PwrCor’s proprietary technology achievements
NEW YORK, Dec. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PwrCor, Inc. (PWCO), an advanced technology company focusing on clean, renewable energy solutions for the Waste-Heat-to-Power, Geothermal, and Solar Thermal markets, has engaged Eaton Corporation (ETN) to design and manufacture a key component of PwrCor’s proprietary engine technology. The roll-out of the component is in pace with PwrCor’s Q1 2019 commercialization program.
The engagement represents a critical milestone enabling PwrCor’s commercialization of its latest technology efficiency advancements announced earlier this year: http://www.pwrcor.com/pwrcor-release-technology-june2618-pdf/
The efficiency advancements resulted as part of PwrCor’s ongoing research and development program conducted at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in San Antonio, Texas. The increase in efficiency affords up to 33% additional power output without requiring additional fuel – which in PwrCor’s case is ultra-low-grade heat.
The increase in efficiency further expands PwrCor's leadership in the ultra-low energy conversion market as the economics will now support a greater range of viable applications.
At the operating temperatures currently being addressed by the PwrCor technology, the efficiencies projected now exceed that of other thermodynamic power cycles, including the Rankine Cycle, used in many applications, as well as the Organic Rankine Cycle used in Waste-Heat-to-Power, Geothermal, and Solar Thermal power applications.
Eaton Corporation was selected because of their expertise and market leadership in hydraulic equipment, specifically pistons. The customized component that PwrCor engaged Eaton to design and manufacture is proprietary to PwrCor, and Eaton is slated to be an exclusive manufacturer.
Tom Telegades, CEO of PwrCor, stated, “Eaton is a leading global power management company providing energy-efficient products and services to much of the industrialized world, focused on helping their customers effectively manage electrical, hydraulic, and mechanical power. They also are focused on many of the same markets that PwrCor has identified as strategic to its commercialization program, including Oil & Gas, Utilities, Data Centers, and Automotive, to name a few.”
PwrCor’s technology delivers the ability to reduce the overall cost of energy for power users. Low and ultra-low-grade heat, which up until now could only be discarded and wasted, can be cost-effectively utilized to generate electrical power, providing cost savings and improving bottom line performance.
PwrCor is currently engaged in discussions with leading companies in such industries as fuel cells and reciprocating engines, and on additional project initiatives in oil and gas, solar thermal, and data centers, all of which have enormous amounts of wasted ultra-low-grade heat that can now be converted to additional power, contributing to higher profits. Our technology cost-effectively converts heat to mechanical power or electricity, and represents a breakthrough for those businesses which can now profit from converting wasted heat into electrical power.
About the Technology
PwrCorTM engines use proprietary technology that can cost effectively convert ultra-low-grade heat to usable mechanical or electrical energy, opening up an immense market representing hundreds of gigawatts of potential power production. This is wasted energy that previously could not be economically harnessed as usable power by competing technologies. PwrCor's breakthrough technology can change the profile of how energy is created and consumed in markets around the globe, and can be used in place of or in conjunction with most existing technologies. PwrCorTM is a completely ‘green’ technology that uses no fossil fuels, does not operate via combustion, has no emissions, and does not process any working fluids that are flammable, harmful to the environment, or costly to replace. PwrCorTM is scalable, modular, and runs relatively silently, all within a small footprint.
