cyclone power technologies has filed for patents for the cyclone thermal storage unit and the cyclone thermal medium.
“we feel this is a major step in securing our place in the heat storage battery market and puts us as a solar storage preferred supplier.” exclaims frankie fruge, company president.
the cyclone thermal storage unit (tsu) is a propriety technology developed by cyclone. this technology uses salt water to produce a water proof and mold proof cement system developed by genesis. that can be built on site in areas that have no or limited access to fresh water.
the recently announced new subsidiary, cyclone thermal storage genesis llc, has the exclusive rights to this method for the thermal storage unit and the exclusive rights to produce the thermal storage unit for mass production.
the cyclone thermal medium (ctm), also a proprietary technology. it is a benign storage agent that does not solidify and can retain high temperatures. it will flow thru the cyclone trough system and gather heat from the sun and move it to the cyclone thermal storage unit.
the heat is then stored so that it can continue to generate electricity at its full rated capacity day and night for six sunless days in a row. this is a monumental breakthrough for the microgrid market, as small tsus are otherwise not commercially available.
the tsu can also be used to store energy from bio-mass and other heat sources to be used to heat water, heat homes, or produce electricity or a combination of all three.
