TECHNOLOGY

 

LiquidPiston’s rotary engines are the first disruption to engine technology in over a century. These engines are not Wankel engines; they are uniquely configured to adopt the company’s patented thermodynamic cycle and its associated efficiency and low-noise benefits. LiquidPiston’s X Engine improves virtually all parameters – efficiency, weight, size, vibration, and noise.

HIGH EFFICIENCY HYBRID CYCLE (HEHC)

 

LiquidPiston’s HEHC is a patented thermodynamic cycle that combines the advantages of Diesel, Otto and Atkinson thermodynamic cycles, resulting in up to 30% improved efficiency.

HOW IT WORKS

 

A simple, efficient and elegant system, the X Engine only has a few moving parts, including the rotor (the primary work-producing component) and an eccentric shaft. Aside from ancillary parts such as injectors, fuel pumps and oil pumps, there are no other additional moving parts.
