: -SO The actual unit that is for sale recovers an appreciable amount of waisted energy via"Power Block Thermoelectric Generating modules '' from units big enough
to electrify my home town ! The important part of this is the individual modules that produce dc power, and the Discharge gas temps 200 dC *

From this Turnkey operation measured at production runs of 1,000kWe at the primary engine, there is an additional recovery of 25kWe in additional Electrical output!
This is accomplished by an array of 32 modules .

Any one interested in the used market for these modules ?

Goto :::--> www.youtube.com/watch?v=DudsKeB39p8 <--::: Hint, highlight the area I marked Bold, a right click should open this in a new window , or start a
Google Search

A slightly more detailed report at :::--> phys.org/news/2014-10-thermoelectric-waste-heat-recovery-e1.html?%22 <--::: Highlight and right click !

If these ''power block thermo-electric units'' could be placed on the inside of an insulated or part insulated drum, and both generate electricity on demand/demand
storage, cool and condense the Exhaust gases to provide the pull-me/push-you magic of the Heat Riser Barrel, and allow the downstream flow through and storage of
the unused portion of the ''waste heat'' within our Thermal Mass Battery this would be a significant breakthrough !

The expected minimum life cycle is Now 10 years, as there are no moving parts or working fluids, it seems possible -if we can keep the generally cleaner exhaust gas
of a working RMH flowing past the modules at the specified temperatures ! For the Good of the Crafts ! Big AL

Here's how you can build a thermoelectric generator, from scratch, using Peltier elements. You can use these to provide or extract heat from an ambient. Very cool project. Peltier elements are available on ebay for a couple of bucks.

Allen,
That is so cool! (hot really..)
have any of you seen this William Skinner’s Gravity-powered Device?
I stumbled on to it here
http://www.free-energy-info.co.uk/NewcomerIndex.html
I do not know enough about electricity, but it seems to me that you could use a minimum of solar or wind and boost its out put considerably by a series of DYI gravity powered generators, making it very afordible..That and the waste heat generators and we could sell electric to our neighbors, or give it to them....now that a devious plot to change the world ... Any thoughts on the viability of this gravity device?

Suzanne Cornell : I sent you a P.M. -

I actually had to look at a map to realize just how close to Pennsylvania you are !


If you get up to Ithaca N.Y. occasionally You should definitely check out the Fine People at RE-ACT ! Their Recycle program starts at the site where a home
is selected for teardown and near total salvage, this includes an apprentice-ship (my word choice) in DE-Construction for the workers -sometimes leading to a
paid position

Their whole operation makes the Habitat for Humanities Re-Stores seem small in comparison !

( the Re-Act people deserve a separate thread and i will try to do one soon !

Go0od luck with your future building projects - Keep us informed ! Big AL
