EVGray: Miracle No-Fuel Electric Engine Can Save U.S. Public $35 Billion a Year in Gasoline Bills, July 8, 1973
As reported exclusively last week in TATTLER, the astonishing new system creates electricity without consuming the world's dwindling supply of fossil fuel, without creating pollution, and without using costly and unsightly transmission lines.
The first and most vital outcome of the theory that is forcing the science of physics to revise its fundamental assumptions is the "EMA" electric engine -- a power plant that dooms noisy, dirty gasoline motors.
That means that the nation would no longer have to consume expensive and befouling gasoline. According to figures from the American Petroleum Institute, the anticipated consumption this year is 100 billion gallons at least $35 billion worth at the pump.
Invented by Edwin Gray Sr., 48, of Van Noys, Calif., the engine has been tested and is being perfected by him and his associates in EvGray Enterprises.
The silent, pollution-free EMA recycles its own energy and can run indefinitely.
Gray's prototype is powered by four six-volt batteries which "will wear out before they'll run down," as the inventor puts it.
"We can go up to 1,000 horsepower with a single unit, or down to a miniature toy size."
The latter units, in fact, will be among the first products EvGray manufactures. They'll run off a tiny battery unit.
Gray and his engineers, Richard Hackenberger and Fritz Lens, explained to TATTLER that they have found a way to use both the positive and negative particles of electricity separately.
The technicians demonstrated for this reporter the phenomenon of electromagnetic repulsion -- the power source for the EMA.
Two magnets, each weighting 1 3/4 pounds were repelled apart with an explosive force, but the magnets did not heat up and 99 per cent of the energy recycled to the battery.
The same "cold" energy repelling magnets, arranged on a flywheel, run the motor.
Hackenberger, an electronics specialist, explained: "A series of high-voltage energy 'spikes' are developed by our circuitry. These energy units are transferred to a control unit, which acts much like a distributor in an internal combustion engine."
The control unit is the key to the motor's efficiency. It regulates the energy spikes to determine the polarity (north or south) and directs the voltage into selected electromagnets in the main unit.
"Every time a magnet is charged, most of the energy is recycled back into the batteries without losing power," Hackenberger said.
The EMA has been tested thoroughly. Its efficiency is undisputed. "Engineers and physicists who see it oeprate have a hard time believing their eyes," Gray said. "One professor from UCLA insisted we had some sort of laser beam running it, and even though we moved it from room to room he wouldn't believe it." While the motor was running, Gray spun it around in a complete circle to demonstrate that it operated at any position. The experimental model engine is 42 inches long, 18 inches wide and 22inches high about the size of a standard six-cylinder motor.
It turned better than 2,500 revolutions per minute for more than 20 minutes. The power input came from the four six-volt batteries. At the end of the trial they were tested and found to be as fully charged as they were at the beginning.
It generated 100 horsepower and 66 pounds of constant torque. The brake horsepower tests out at 32.05.
The motor has only two bearings which require lubrication, so maintenance costs will be minimal; it operates at a maximum temperature of about 170 degrees and is coold by compressed air.
There was no vibration and the noise level was about the same as any kitchen appliance, this reporter observed.
It started with the flick of a switch. It can be accelerated or slowed by any mechanical device which programs the control unit. This means the customary foot pedal could be used for driving purposes.
Gray discovered how to make this remarkable engine back in 1958. He fought frustration and scepticism for 10 years before finally getting about $1.1 million to help build and prove the prototype. The search for an efficient, clean engine has cost taxpayers nearly a billion dollars in government research grants over the years.
Ed Gray did it on a fraction of that and a new direction for mankind has been uncovered.
