The "Portable Heater" is a design system to provide heat for a dwelling when the Utility power goes out or you simply can not afford to heat a room. The unit functions on air pressure that cycles within the system. An "electrical ground wire will then plug into the house ground wire at a power receptacle to keep any static electricity from effecting the device.
The design is pressurized manually by a manual air pump then filling a pneumatic ( air pressure ) pressure tank via one way valve then to retain the air pressure. The system will allow the exhaust of the air pressure to then impale an pneumatic impeller causing a drive belt and pulley system to rotate yielding an increased velocity rate upon the smaller pulley then tandem rotating with a counter tilted ration gear set. Prior to "Start" the flow tube is purged of pressure at valve post blower fan with the other valves closed.
The ratio gear set is "counter tilted" by the pneumatic exhaust then venting from pneumatic impeller labeled as letter "A". This pressurized velocity then is impaling the high side of the ratio gear set causing the system to speed up on the pneumatic displacement of the primary pneumatic impeller labeled as letter "A".
The low rotational side of the ratio gear set ( ratio at 1:20 ) is also fed pneumatic pressure then venting via regulation valve to then impale the ratio gear set's internal pneumatic impeller causing an increased yet variable rate of rotation due to increased torque then applied to the low side, the "1" of the 1:20 ratio gear set.
The pneumatic exhaust from the internal pneumatic impeller the upon the low side of the ratio gear set then merging ( via two inlet pneumatic coupling ) with the intake of the pneumatic impeller tandem rotating with the high side of the ratio gear set. This increases the "counter tilt " pressure and will cause a suction effect allowing the system to draft itself forward.
The additional exhaust from the high side of the ratio gear set is then a "pressure safety / pressure relief system" with pressure sensor upon the fittings exhaust valve, to then regulate the system speed at the solenoid controlling the valves. To the via tube vent excessive pneumatic pressure back to the impeller labeled as "A". Actuating of the safety pressure valve causes the valve to close by reducing the current to the solenoids causing less air flow from the main pneumatic pressure storage tank.
This then allows for pneumatic tank pressure to be low as the "energy work then not derived from high pressure rather compounding velocity. The pneumatic exhaust then emanating from the ratio gear sets high side rotation pneumatic impeller then is at greater speed and pressure and is then directed to a pneumatic impeller tandem rotating with the mechanical blower unit that forces cooler air into the quartz heater chamber.
The electricity for the quartz heating elements is then derived from the sealed dynamo. A dynamo is a permanent magnetic generator of electricity. The reason for using a gas sealed dynamo with pressure loss fault sensor is as not to produce any ozone while generating electricity. The voltage is regulated within the systems control electronics to then also allow the operator to select between the different heat settings low medium and high heat settings.
For safety redundant thermostats with redundant "tilt" sensors to the act as an all stop features for the systems safe operation. ie if the unit tips over it will shut itself off. So by the system refilling the pneumatic pressure faster than it is displaced, it will continue to operate and provide heat or via the receptacle upon the control panel to power a phone or other device.
The pneumatic valves are then positioned via redundant solenoids ( shut off ) with a "start" system manual release button to start the system. The solenoids are coil spring tension, with connecting link to position the pneumatic valves then forcing the valve open. When the solenoids are are de-energized the springs will cause the valves to close also shutting off the heat elements and cause the system to stop. The voltage regulator, post dynamo electrical generation, will also contain a current level sensor / controller to cause the valves to restrict the air flow preventing a run away effect.
A final heat cap will also be included to allow for the venting of heat laterally or to mass heat storage or into house hold boiler then to use the in place radiators or inject the hot air into a heat exchanger then venting into the houses heat duct system.
The quartz elements will all heat at one time then at different intensity levels also sensitive to the rooms air temperature via thermostat. This prevents uneven thermal fatigue within the heating chamber.
A pulley and drive belt then in addition to the blower fan connecting , via drive belt with tension pulley, to an additional pulley on the opposite side of the ratio gear set at the "1" of the 1:20 ratio gear set this yields increased speed at the dynamo. The valve prior to the blower fan assembly will contain a max pressure pressure blow down safety valve then with one way valve injecting air back into the main pressure tank.
