EXPECTATIONS HEIGHTENED DUE TO OUTSTANDING DESIGN MODIFICATIONS IN NEW RAND CAM/DIRECT CHARGE ROTARY ENGINE

 VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 17 ~PRNewswire~ -- Reg Resources (Vancouver: RRE) today announced that the technical evaluation and basic design modifications of the Rand Cam~Direct Charge engine has been completed. The evaluation conducted by Dr. James Smith and the technical team at CIRA (Center for Industrial Research Applications) reveals outstanding improvements have been made to this revolutionary rotary engine.
 The Rand Cam~Direct Charge engine will now get more power impulses than a Jaguar V12 engine.
 The reason is the modifications have increased the number of vanes from two to six, resulting in 12 impulses per revolution compared with four power impulses on the original Rand Cam Engine. (The engine develops power by igniting fuel behind vanes that extend through a central rotor.) The new six-vane prototype engine should produce even more torque and be virtually vibration-free.
 By way of comparison, a standard piston engine receives one impulse for every two revolutions. The Wankel rotary engine receives only one impulse per revolution.
 The detailed report from West Virginia University also includes other changes such as the reshaping of the vane tips and the rotor surface which should eliminate all sealing problems encountered by the early Wankel rotary engines, increasing the Rand Cam~Direct Charge engine's reliability while allowing for better fuel mixture.
 Further improvements include abandoning valves in favor of ports, suggesting that intake and exhaust timing may be altered to suit engine speed without complex variable valve timing devices. A significant benefit of the porting system is that higher engine speeds are now possible. In addition, the overall number of parts have been reduced through the elimination of the valve train.
 The engineering team will now tackle the design work needed to establish precise ramp profiles, vane top profiles, sealing, lubrication and coving. The timetable for the launch of the six-vane, 50-hp prototype is rapidly advancing with the unveiling scheduled for early next year.
