Cross Flow Turbine
Technology Description The ECO Auger is driven by moving water forcing the machine to rotate This rotation is directly coupled through planetary gears to a high pressure hydraulic pump located in the machine s nose cone The nose cone which is tethered to bridges or anchored in moving water stabilizes the torque generated from the rotation and transfers it to the hydraulic pump The pump supplies variable volumes of high pressure fluid at set controlled pressure regardless of the direction or speed of rotations This pressure feeds an oil driven electric generator that delivers constant electrical current through a VRS Voltage Regulation System Constant power generation is achieved through the ECO Auger s unique hydraulic pump As the ECO Auger rotates the high pressure oil flows through check valves to an array of standard air oil accumulators that are connected directly in line to the oil motor driving the electric generator The oil to the electric generator is sized below the maximum gallons
