Algae Bio Reactor Oil Tanker Catamaran


The following design is a "Catamaran" style vessel hull to add to the existing Oil Tanker fleets to then cause active production of hydrocarbon feed stock filling the oil tankers with oil (hydrocarbon feed stock) while in route to the off load destinations....


The design operates 24/7 then by artificial illumination (lamps) at night time. The "arch design" then containing bio reactor flow tubes to then cycle water containing Algae. The system's fuel less generator then able to pump the algae water, heat, and cool by fuel less electricity. The electricity then produced by the "hydraulic draft accelerator" generator system. The "fresh water" for the algae

bio reactor then obtained from de-humidification (cold side) of the system's H.V.A.C. unit (water temperature control system)


The on-board bio reactor then fills the oil tanker with oil while in transit or while docked.........


This design if used for fuel production can be made to become carbon neutral as the spent algae husk can be slightly burnt into char and sunk into the water where safe to do so......









































Parts List

    lamp systems)


2. bio reactor lamp control system contains lamp timers


3. generator control electronic circuit "logic" box

      is not required to "run" all of the time / increases longevity of the component - natural position engaged ... the clutch uses throw out slave

      to disengage and if required while in operation the electric system engages via an "engage solenoid" to then cause unit actuation

      air compression cycle). The inflow and out flow / "direction" of air flow then also controlled by solenoid upon the unit to then change direction

      of air compression or to switch the "function" of the unit to allow the "re-filling" of the dual component pressure storage tank.  The dual function

      air pump / air impeller is pivot mounted to "adjust" drive belt tension.

Description


The above design system is then an addition to existing oil tankers to produce algae derived oil while the oil tanker is in transit. The oil tanker is also equipped with a "horizontal oil distillation system to then "refine" the algae oil into other hydrocarbon feed stock for fuel, plastics etc...


The generator system is a "hydraulic draft accelerator" then producing fuel less electrical current by pressurizing a "tilt" within the mechanics of the oil flow system with the advancement rate obtained in two fashions. First the high speed oil pump then causes total system advancement by "pulling" the pneumatically pressurized oil across a preceding hydraulic impeller connected to and incline gear system yielding higher speed of the hydraulic pump. You cannot "stretch" a fluid in the confinement of a rigid flow pipe. The "retained" air pressure in the dual component pressure tank, number 4, then of sufficient "pressure" to counter act upon / nullify, the mechanical and electromagnetic resistance produced within the generator system. This "cycles" work potential allowing for continual operation.....


The attribute in fluid dynamics causes the "suction effect" to accelerate the system by fluid dynamics. The second way the system accelerates is then by the "re-introduction" circuit ie .... "then being" a percentile of generated electricity directed back to the hydraulic impeller's drive line assembly dual shaft electric motor. This causes a stable rate of total system rotation governed by the design's electronic circuit board that references the design's sensors and rate of rotation producing excess electricity to then electrify the total system functions.


* Note - the design may also be used slightly modified to then serve as a plankton farm increasing food availability for aquatic life while sinking

              the water saturated CO2 (carbon dioxide) thus reducing oceanic Anoxic conditions.....


* Note - the side view of the bio reactors in the drafting are then all containing the same components in each catamaran


* Note - the generator's oil flow control valves are coil spring retained to the closed position and implement electric actuation with a

             redundant "all stop" solenoid upon the main oil flow pipe valve, number 12
