The first Pulse-R™ working prototypes were built in 2000 and the technology is now being further developed through collaboration with industrial and academic partners.
Pulse-R has been built, tested and benchmarked against global best in class, and, burning propane gas, delivered over 35% more torque between 1,000 and 3,500 rpm than the benchmark 400cc DI diesel engine upon which the prototype is based.
Our development project aims to achieve 45% thermal efficiency and a BSFC of below 200g/kWhr. Early measurements and simulations suggest that we can achieve this whilst retaining outstanding performance, and market-leading low emissions. The prototype has been tested and developed for over two years and has had 100% mechanical reliability.
