A MANUFACTURING-READY SUITE OF TECHNOLOGIES
WhalePower’s Tubercle Technology left the concept stage more than two years ago. The tools required to bring this technology to market quickly have been developed. The process for implementing Tubercle Technology makes extensive use of digital technology which extends from design specification, through CNC machining and fabrication. While every fan and turbine project is different, the bottom line is WhalePower can rapidly develop precise designs for retrofit leading edges or fully integrated tubercle technology blades for any turbine.
- Retrofit blades are stronger than the original unmodified blades.
- Integrated blades meet or exceed all required performance criteria.
Fabrication of either retrofit or integrated elements is fully compatible with all industry standard fabrication techniques.
PATENT PROTECTION FOR WHALEPOWER TUBERCLE TECHNOLOGY
WhalePower was founded by Dr. Frank Fish, Dr. Phil Watts and Stephen Dewar in October of 2004 to develop applications of Tubercle Technology. Dr. Fish and Dr. Watts have granted WhalePower Corporation the exclusive right to exploit tubercle-enhanced leading edge technology for a broad range of devices incorporating the technology and Patents have been applied for to provide global protection for all such devices.These rights have been assigned to WhalePower.
A FUNDAMENTAL ADVANCE
Inspired by the flippers of Humpback Whales, WhalePower has developed something truly remarkable – Tubercle Technology – which takes its name from the bumps on the leading edge of the whale’s flippers.
THE RIGHT TECHNOLOGY … AND RIGHT ON TIME
Tubercle Technology is more than just another blade design: It is a fundamental advance in fluid dynamics which will transform a host of machines built on that challenging science. Just when the world needs it most, Tubercle Technology offers new options. Turbines, compressors, pumps and fans will never be the same again.
Standby! The Whale is about to break through conventional limitations.
Tubercle Technology began with WhalePower President, Dr. Frank E. Fish solving one of Nature’s mysteries: How was it possible for Humpback Whales to be so astonishingly agile? The answer: those strange bumps produce the “tubercle effect” which was first described by Dr. Fish. WhalePower, building on the science, adds precisely formed versions of those bumps to the leading edges of the blades or rotors at the heart of almost any machine designed to work with any fluid whether air, water, steam or oil.
NEW SCIENCE YIELDS NEW POSSIBILITIES
In wind tunnel and water tunnel studies, tubercle blades easily overcome fluid dynamic “limitations” that were once considered unavoidable laws by engineers, technicians and scientists.
- Tubercle Technology wind turbines will be more efficient and more reliable.
- Tubercle Technology hydroelectric turbines will open up vast new opportunities in power generation.
- Tubercle Technology pumps will deliver enhanced efficiency for everything from municipal water systems to farm irrigation.
- And last – but certainly not least – Tubercle Technology will truly revolutionize fans. Everything from ceiling fans to HVAC fans to large scale ventilation fans will need less power and will be quieter as well.
