The Jay Taub team is always looking for ideas that come ‘out of the box’ – not your status quo concept of creativity. With that said, they have drawn plans for an energy efficient steam engine.
What does this mean?
Back in the day, steam powered just about every machine and were efficient in production and travel; however, they lacked control of their exhausts from the fireboxes and consequently, smoke would be pouring out from the top. Of course, no one cared in the 1860, as the skies were clear and pollution was a problem only to be addressed 100 years later.
Well, now it is more than 100 years later and bringing back the steam engine for today’s industrial work would be nothing more than taboo, unless someone develops a more effective use of how to boil the water without dispersing harmful exhausts.
The Taub Team is working on that alternative. They have come up with a system that does away with fireboxes and instead heats the water in a very non pollutive way, subsequently allowing the water to convert into a vapor (steam) and then apply the necessary components to make the particular machine operate.
The project, called steam clean is in its planning stages, but so that our readers can understand just how the steam engine works, we have provided a How To article that describes a summary of the process.
