you need to see the past posts on " A Better Wheel" i redesigned the RQ
gap to be linear and apposed ...I believe Terry may still have the
pictures on his site ... the gap has alot of advantages ( but there are
still a few that need improving) Im using mine on a 10 KVA pig the gaps
air cooled and im getting great results for a static gap setup....
I am considering building a linear forced air gap to test on my 6" coil
running at 7kva to compare to the performance of my async rotary. I would
like to check yours out and get some ideas. I envision two pieces of plastic
(maybe .25" lexan) about 3 or 4" wide and as long as necessary. Using about
10 copper pipe sections (purchased couplings,not cut - so hopefully they are
all the same length) spaced about .030" apart. The plastic could be routed
on a mill so there is a slot down the length of each just as wide as the
copper pieces. Do you run a bolt through the center of each pipe section to
clamp it in place? The gap would need end pieces and some bottom tapered
pieces to act as a manifold to connect to a vacuum motor. Is this the right
Do you know which web site might have pictures of your gap?
Does anyone have the phone number, part number and price of the vacuum motors
that were discussed a while back?
