A history lesson on practical isothermal compression via the Taylor compressor

ERIC WESOFF | FEBRUARY 04, 2015 | Green Tech Media

Carnot Compression, an early-stage startup, has resurrected a century-old technology to demonstrate that isothermal compression is achievable and can save energy wherever compressors are used -- which is pretty much everywhere.

The core technology of the eight-employee startup's invention is based on the Taylor compressor.

CENTURY-OLD TECHNOLOGY COMES INTO ITS OWN

November 02, 2014 at 7:00 am | By DAVID GUNTER Feature correspondent

SANDPOINT — More than a century ago, Charles H. Taylor had a bright idea. He wanted to achieve what, until then, had been the purely theoretical notion of what the French called the “carnot cycle” — generating power by using ideal thermodynamics that generate no heat while creating enormous compression.

Drawings and diagrams of Taylor’s subsequent inventions showed up in engineering textbooks for the rest of the 20th Century, always listed as examples of what was still being touted as mere theory.

Funny thing, that, since Taylor’s compressors had long been in use to supply compression to mines and then power the towns that sprung up around them. So successful was this invention — and so marketing-minded the man behind it — that he even scheduled tourist events around the regular “blow-offs” that were necessary because of the surplus of compressed air that the mines and towns couldn’t possibly use up. People gathered around to watch as towering spires of water shot out of the ground in the industrial equivalent of the way Mother Earth uses Old Faithful to relieve underground pressure.

Carnot Compression Announces successful testing of proprietary isothermal compression behavior

24 October 2014

Carnot Compression LLC announced it has successfully demonstrated isothermal compression (i.e., temperature remains constant, ΔT = 0) across multiple tests and design iterations. Carnot says its results represent a major breakthrough in energy efficiency for the compression industry; prior to Carnot’s technology, the Taylor Compressor, implemented at the beginning of the 20th century, was the only isothermal compression system in operation, the company says.

If the 18 companies housed in San Jose’s new ProspectSV Technology Demonstration Center have their way, buildings will have more energy-efficient and natural interior lighting, and they’ll be powered by self-sustaining “micro-grids.”

On the road, hybrid vehicles will run on more efficient, possibly solar- or wind-powered batteries. Electric vehicle chargers will be more reliable and possibly mobile. And to cut down on accidents involving vehicles of all types, traffic signs will be digital, connected and smart.
