I'm reading up on Hirsch Vortex design, and trying to correlate with
A Hirsch Vortex works by separating cold molecules from hot molecules.
Could a TT/Hirsch be combined?
The single most efficient design I can imagine would be a flat spiral
Imagine that you had a rotor three inches across, machined into a
The 'blades' in the spiral would be no more than 1/20 of an inch
thick, and the air gap would be 1/100th of an inch.
When you spin this bad boy up, air enters through intake holes in the
armature, and gets drawn along with the spiral blade.
When the air reaches the end of the spiral, you separate it into cold
flow at the center and hot flow at the casing.
Of course, this design is just about impossible to make !
