Car that runs on compressed air – Uruguayan invention
Posted by keelynet on October 21, 2010
The compressed aircar by Guy Negre has been looming for decades, like the flying car from Moeller…always trolls for more investment but never a product.
Guy Negre of MDI Air Car has an engine that runs on compressed air. Emissions are only filtered air that’s cleaner than outside air. 300 bars of pressure (300 bar = 4,351.132 pounds/square inch) in carbon-fibre & kevlar air tanks. Car can travel at 110 km/hr (62mph) and has a 150km (93 miles) driving range.
Refilling can be done by plugging in at home or at a special high-pressure air station. Dual-energy models use small amounts of bio-fuels that can extend the range to over 1400 kms (870 miles). Pollution free vehicle that produces zero emissions. When the car stops at traffic lights, the engine stops so no energy is lost because there’s no idling.
I wish the video below would be translated into english to reveal what pressure he was using, how far and how fast he could drive on a charge and other useful details. One welding tank can hold about 3,000 psi. / Based on Boyle´s law “p x v = k”, this car uses compressed air to work. It was invented by Armando Regusci, an uruguayan engineer.
A search finds Aircars on Regusci – Since 1984 Armando Regusci is working on compressed air vehicles. In 1992 with only one charge of compressed air in the tank of his car, he drove 100Km (62 miles). This is possible because he uses a special free piston and free wheel compressed air engine. To drive 100Km in Uruguay a car needs to spend $10 at prices for the year 2000. With this vehicle, the cost is only 4 cents out of a dollar. – Full Article Source
