Nozzle Performance Results and Status:
The method and processes have been developed by Tenoroc, LLC via a working bench top prototype, CFD profiles, and thermodynamic modeling of gas mixtures. Scale up in size has no apparent challenges.
The Tenoroc nozzle was able to remove 27.5% of the CO2 from an 80/20 N2/CO2 test gas mix in a single pass through the nozzle,, a remarkable efficiency level given that it was operating at only 2.8 percent of the appropriate aspect ratio. *The nozzle was extremely choked.
Further testing confirmed that increasing the aspect ratio slightly, but far short of the appropriate level, improved separation levels by 50% and reduced operating pressure requirements by over 50%. We believe further increases of the aspect ratio, to an appropriate level, could drastically improve separation levels while massively reducing operating pressure requirements. The Tenoroc nozzle could be a game changer.
*Note: Testing the nozzle with an inadequate aspect ratio resulted from an inability to supply sufficient volumes of gas which would have been required by a larger aspect ratio due to its increased throughput capacity.
Tenoroc LLC’s Goal:
To place this technology with the correct industry partner.
The correct partner should have the in-house resources (i.e. Computational Fluid Dynamics) to:
verify our results,
confirm how much better the nozzle will operate with an adequate aspect ratio,
and further optimize the Tenoroc technology.
Technological Breakthrough in Gas Separation
Tenoroc has developed patented nozzles that separate gases, and have transformative use in multiple energy sectors. Although Tenoroc’s technology is classified as "Clean Technology", it was not developed to replace polluting technologies, and does not rely upon tax incentives for feasibility. For example, these nozzles can be used to make use of vast natural gas reserves which are unviable using today’s cleansing technology, or as part of a system for generating enormous quantities of electric power without the need for additional fuel by making use of massive amounts and sources of waste heat.
