|Several problems were encountered with adhesives in the system due to the elevated temperatures, this is indicated by the drastic dips in the graph.|
|73.5 deg increase in 4 minutes, 18.38 deg per minute|
|If 81 sq in of lens increases water temperature by 18.38 degrees per minute|
|a 10 in diameter 6 foot (72 in) long tube (720 sq in) should increase the temperature 720/81 or 8.89in2 X 18.38°F = 163.40°F/min/tube|
|At 212°F / 163.40°F = 1.29. At this rate it should take 1.29 tubes to reach 212°F within 1 minute.|
Very large heavy clouds with partial clearing at times, outside temp was 60 degrees, windy about 20 mile an hours gusts.
The above data was taken using a single target manafold combination as depecited below.
Elemental Dynamics started out about 10 years ago with a concept for a new type of solar concentrator. after years of testing different variations similar to the one shown below, we made some rather exciting realizations. After combining multiple concepts in CSP and thermodynamic technologies, Elemental Dynamics applied for the first of three patents.
Elemental Dynamics, LLC is currently in the process of seeking investment through pitch competitions and crowdfunding. We have secured the necessary legal entity, URL and patent pending. After three revisions of prototypes, we are extremely confident with our new direction.
