Solaroli claims to hold a breakthrough patent on a "pseudo adiabatic engine
" that is more than twice as efficient as conventional engine technology.
"The company was started at a time when there was a great deal of hype surrounding ceramics, when designers were dreaming of the adiabatic engine
running at a very high temperature that would cause the oil to break down," says Klatt.
An adiabatic engine
, by definition, is an engine in which no heat is added or subtracted during a thermodynamic cycle.
This also suggests the direction of further development of an optimally adiabatic engine
(compared to previous all-ceramic combustion systems) having the potential for additional thermal efficiency improvement.
