Most people take the internal combustion engine pretty much for granted these days, since it’s been around for more than 100 years. But now three Reno entrepreneurs have not only been thinking about it, but working since 2008 to develop and patent new technologies designed to change and improve its performance.
Meet Speed of Air, a research and development lab that has found a way to reduce emissions, maintain or increase horsepower, and burn more available fuel in the combustion process — regardless of engine size — at NCET’s next Tech Wed on December 11.
Speed of Air’s innovative technology addresses the inefficiencies of conventional engine technology at the root cause — directly inside the combustion chamber — and creates an integrated solution that reduces emissions up to 81% and fuel consumption by 7.75% — all while increasing power output up to 23%.
How did they do it? They developed a technology to replace the smooth surfaces of a combustion chamber with a textured surface and thermal coating to make air travel faster at a more consistent temperature. Hence, speed of air. The result is better in every way.
Benefits to their customers? Extending the engine life cycle, reducing operating costs, and improving performance.
We’re gearing up for another fascinating Tech Wed on December 11, this time at Speed of Air. Won’t you join us? Register today and get ready to explore — and be blown away by — one of Reno’s most inventive and innovative companies.
