So I just read about this company called Rotoblock. The company is basaed in Santa Rosa California and is working on a type of engine called a toroidal internal combustion engine. The torodial engine made by Rotoblock is an evolution of the oscillating piston engine (O.P.E) designed by Dr. Monti Farrell.
As skeptical as I am that any of the large auto manufactures will adopt the revolutionary engine I can’t help but root for the small company.
The O.P.E seems a promising alternative to traditional reciprocating piston engines mainly because of it’s increased power to wight ratio.Given that Mazda has been using Wankel engines for some time now maybe their is some hope for Rotoblock.
How ever it turns out it’s always great to see innovation alive and well.read more… 1 comment
