Example of Modular Block Turbine Housing

Modular Block

The modular fluid handling device has a central bore with fluid passages that extend between block faces, both horizontally and vertically. The blocks can be stacked horizontally, vertically, or both. Rotating elements can be configured in any of the passages for the purpose of pumping, extraction, or power production.

Purpose: The functionality of the blocks is to perform rapid prototyping by deploying modular construction of systems using bolts.

Standard Blocks: 3 inch size with 10/32 inch fasteners. 1 inch center bore and 1/4 and 1/2 inch horizontal bores.

Larger Blocks: 6 inch size with 3/8 inch fasteners. 3 inch center bore and 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 inch horizontal bores.

Patents (I and II) cover all sizes and most applications.

This invention relates generally to devices for processing and sampling of gases and liquids, and more specifically to devices allowing rapid construction of fluid reactors, distillers, extractors, homogenizers, filtration/separation devices, process models (e.g., devices for modeling engine cycles, refrigeration cycles, etc.), and other devices for handling fluids.

Modular Block

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION:

Fluid handling devices including fermenters, distillers, filtration tanks, evaporators, etc. (or combinations of these components) are exceedingly common in industry and in research labs.

Researchers and engineers also often need to experiment with models for common thermodynamic cycles, e.g., refrigeration cycles (vapor compression cycle, Einstein cycle, etc.) and power cycles (Otto cycle, Diesel cycle, Brayton cycle, Rankine cycle, etc.).

While it is often desirable to generate prototypes or small-scale versions of such devices, they are usually time-consuming, difficult, and expensive to construct. One approach commonly used in laboratories is to connect glassware vessels (e.g., flasks, towers, heat exchangers, etc.) with rubber tubing so that the vessels form some desired fluid process model.

Even apart from the significant time and expense required for their construction, these are quite fragile, are unsuitable for pressurized processes, and are also usually unsuitable for processes involving extreme temperatures or corrosive materials owing to the weakness of the tubing. In some cases, more durable fluid handling devices can be formed from metal vessels connected with (for example) brazed copper tubing, but these involve even greater time, cost, and fabrication burdens.
