Floyde Tanner friction boiler

Lloyd Tanner’s friction boiler creates large amounts of steam using Tanner's friction boiler wood as the fuel. It uses two unseasoned logs every 3 days, so you can use fresh cut hard wood for fuel. This unit now needs a Tesla turbine generator attached to the steam outlet.

Low speed hydroelectric generator home made

Markp0177 has now rebuilt his 13 year old generator that is feed by his local stream. This is a 2 phase generator, and the stator that holds the coils is made of epoxy and metal filings/shavings, just like the mixture in JB weld. The metal shavings are ferrous Not Aluminum. Once the epoxy cures in the mold it is removed and the surface is refined. He did this by converting a drill press into a milling machine (Smart man!). Then he wound the first phase, then the second phase using both using 18 gauge wire, 40 turns per coil. The old stator was a larger gage and only had 20 turns per coil. The new stator will produce a higher voltage but lower current. He changed the configuration on the new stator coils, so that it would operate better at a lower speeds. I have placed the video below the steps of the build.

This is the unit complete ready to run. next how the stator is built


This shows the axle that is used, a standard trailer axle.


The casted Stator before milling


During the milling process the top and bottom have been made smooth, now for the sides


This is the final part of the milling process. Making all of the grooves the same for the winding of the coils



Winding the First Phase Coil skipping a groove for the second phase to be wound into.
Now both the first and second phase coils have been wound


Close to complete, he is showing the way the ring of steel that holds the magnets keep the magnetic fields in the generator and direct them in to the stator so that the coils can convert the magnetism into electricity.

Hydraulic Ram Pump uses no electricity

The Hydraulic Ram Pump, Hydram, or simply Ram Pump is an automatic pumping device that is capable of pumping water higher than its original source without using electricity or any other power source. hydrolic ram pump

There is always wasted water produced by these units during the delivery phase and is practical to have the unit on the bank of the stream so that the runoff returns to the stream. The wasted water allows gravity to pull the water down the pipe and cause a water hammer action to create the pressure needed to deliver the water to homes or irrigation sprinklers. Ram Pump operation,Water will continue to be delivered after the delivery valve has closed until the compressed air in the air chamber has expanded to a pressure equal to the delivery head. Then suction pulse, with the weight or spring on the valve, pulls the waste valve back open and allows the process to begin again.

The War on Renewable Energy

The War on Renewable Energy | Jesse Ventura Off The Grid – Ora TV

There is so much more to say on this subject it is not funny. We as humans need to be using more renewable Energies to help get rid of our dependency on oil.

The Earth is a mess! And Jesse Ventura knows we have to clean up Washington before we can start on our planet. So today on #OffTheGrid, he’s running down the Koch Brothers, Americans for Prosperity and all of the other Poll-Cats waging war on renewable energy. How do you stay green? Tell the Governor about it at

fuelcellRunning Internal Combustion Engines on Water produces no carbon emissions the buy product is nothing more than water / steam. It is Great for the environment and is quite plentiful here on our planet. Stan Myers did this back in the 1990’s and found he could go from California to New York on 22 Gallons of water. That means there is about 3 times the energy in the water than in Fossil Fuels. This system could incorporate all wastes that are produced from the vehicle such as the condensation produced from the AC unit and recycle it in to fuel tank.

Tesla Turbine runs on Steam

Tesla wrote, “This turbine is an efficient self-starting prime mover which may be operated as a steam or mixed fluid turbine at will, without changes in construction and is on this account very tesla-turbineconvenient. Minor departures from the turbine, as may be dictated by the circumstances in each case, will obviously suggest themselves but if it is carried out on these general lines it will be found highly profitable to the owners of the steam plant while permitting the use of their old installation. However, the best economic results in the development of power from steam by the Tesla turbine will be obtained in plants especially adapted for the purpose.”

This turbine can also be successfully applied to condensing plants operating with high vacuum. In such a case, owing to the very great expansion ratio, the exhaust mixture will be at a relatively low temperature and suitable for admission to the condenser. Better fuel has to be used and special pumping facilities provided but the economic results attained will fully justify the increased outlay.

Steam From Water Hammer Extremely Efficient

In the Field of the Invention Steam generators have been in use for many years. Such generators have primarily employed burnable fuels to raise the temperature of a body of water until the watersteamrotor changes into steam. The uses of steam generators have been many. Many building heating systems employ steam as the heating medium. Many chemical processes employ steam to produce certain chemical reactions. Some of these use the steam as a source of heat or to contribute to the reaction while others use the steam as a catalyst to promote the desired reactions. Many physical problems are aided by the use of live steam. For example, certain types of mining operations employ steam to expedite the removal of minerals from the ground. Also, in the drilling for petroleum and gas it is often desired to use live steam to cause the start of the upward discharge of these liquids and gases once pockets of them have been reached by drilling.

It is concluded that steam generation the past have been useful and will continue to be useful in the future especially if a more economical steam generator is available. The steam generator of this present invention is such an economical device.






Summary of the Invention 

A principal object of the present invention is to provide a novel steam generator.

An important object of this invention is to provide a novel device to produce and intensify a series of water hammers within a distended body of water to thereupon substantially raise the temperature and pressure of such water.

Still another important object of this invention is to provide a device as set forth in the preceding object in which the water hammer is caused by alternating forces — first a centrifugal action and second a vacuum action — causing the body of water to be first pulled in one direction and then to snap back in an opposite direction.

Another and still further important object of this invention is to provide a device of the preceding two object in which the distended body of water includes at least one closed bottom passageway in which the movement of water therein is suddenly extinguished and in which the snapping back and forth action of the water column occurs to thereby intentionally impart a water hammer to the body of water so that a portion thereof is continuously converted to live steam.

Other and further important object and advantages will become apparent from the disclosures in the following specifications and accompanying drawings.

Adding HHO Generator to RV

This video is a compilation of cool alternative energy research that we have done over the past few years. Some of these technologies work, and some of them are still in research stages. Others look cool but probably will not work. Regardless, it is important to look into and try to verify any alternative sources we can.
Thanks For the video EletrikRidesAgain. looking forward to the 2014 Alternative Energy Conference in December 7-11.

Can You Use Water to get Better Gas Mileage?

Well yes and no, it really depends on the amount of tinkering you have to do with the vehicle. The best type of vehicle to use is one MIDTECH_D2_L_E_D__HYDROCELL_27_PLATEwith the old style carburettor. It is the easiest because you have a screw to adjust not a computer setting. Most vehicles now have fuel injection and the on-board computer. This is set to pump a curtain amount of fuel for the speed of the motor. Adding a HHO cell will increase the burn ratio but if you don’t modify the computer settings it will still use the same amount of fuel in the same amount of time. If you want to save on gas get in to the habit to check your air pressure every time you fuel up that always works.
Stan Myers did have a car that ran on 100% water back in 1996-1998. he has also patented his designs. he likened the process to an opera singer breaking a wine glass. if you hit the right frequency the glass will shatter. he said it was the same for water, and the frequency he was using was 42800 hz. Instead of sound waves it was electrical pulses in the water. the frequency he refers to is in the microwave spectrum. funny that it is close the the frequency of your microwave oven also. maybe he was on to something.

Midtech Energy is now producing HHO Generators to add to your vehicles intake to help improve gas mileage. Here is a bit on how they work.The HHO Generator sends an electric charge through a liquid electrolyte comprised of distilled or tap water and potassium Hydroxide (KOH), which causes the hydrogen molecules to separate from the oxygen molecules in the water. It then captures the pure hydrogen and oxygen and transports the 2 gases (HHO) into the engine via the air intake system.
