POMPANO BEACH, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 07/29/08 -- Cyclone Power Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CYPW) announced today that it has filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the valve mechanism of its award-wining Cyclone Engine.
The company's most recent patent application covers automatic piston-operated valves, and more specifically, two cooperating valves in a piston head and cylinder head for controlling timing of admission and compression in a steam engine. The nature of this valve allows for smaller clearance volume and higher compression, which is critical for optimal engine efficiency, especially in connection with the company's two cylinder engine -- an engine ideally suited to run portable home generators, auxiliary power units for commercial trucks, and other applications in the 15 to 18 HP range.
"We are very proud of how this valve mechanism is able to increase the thermal efficiencies of our engine," stated Cyclone's CEO, Harry Schoell. "Our new valve design is one major reason why the Cyclone will soon be a cost-effective alternative to dirty gas and diesel powered internal combustion engines."
The company currently has two patents issued in the U.S., and over 48 patents pending in the U.S. and internationally on the Cyclone engine and each of its 12 major components.
