Last weekend Pinjuh won a silver medal at the international ideas, inventions and new products fair iENA in Nuremberg, Germany for his vacuum engine invention called ‘flame eater’, which Pinjuh, who is a third year electrical engineering student at Osijek University, says saves around 40% in energy.
“Because of its simple design and construction the vacuum engine ‘flame eater’ is mounted to an existing heat source or boilers and its work increases the efficiency of your energy sources by 40 percent. This engine does not need maintenance due to the introduction of the filter, it is also independent of lubrication due to material properties. The big advantage is that it can work in both directions at the same speed and efficiency. There is no possibility of explosion,” said Pinjuh, who told Glas Slavonija that NASA have expressed interested in his vacuum engine ‘flame eater’.
