Solutions and Patents
The Solutions are ready and they are now protected by Patents the World over
Our Institute has developed the universal solutions for the problems pertaining to Vacuum-Trains, and Patents have been granted in all relevant countries of the World (Australia, USA, EU, Canada, Japan, Brazil, Russia, India, China, etc.).
The Universal VacTrain® Switch
This is analogue the railway switch. It permits a drive-through operation and high average travel speeds. In contrast, the Stop-and-Go “solutions” of competitors make them slower than Rail and Road. Our switch permits networks for whole continents.
The Universal VacTrain® Airlock
All vacuum-trains must have a Vacuum Gap between the Vehicle and the Walls of the Tunnels. The Universal VacTrain® Airlock permits passengers to cross this gap at stations to board the Vehicle in comfort and safety. It is very quick and reliable.
Vacuum Compatible Tunnels
They are affordable and can maintain the vacuum indefinitely. The surface is sealed with a vacuum compatible Bi-Metal Lining.
VacTrain® Safety Seals
The VacTrain® Safety Seals can close off tunnel cross-sections to isolate select lengths of track. These can then be flooded with air to allow the evacuation of passengers in emergencies (earthquake, etc.). They can also be used for maintenance.
The Heat Control System
The heat control system permits the regulation of heat in the vehicles and technical systems, despite isolation by the vacuum.
Our Emergency Stations use simple fail-safe systems to facilitate evacuations in emergencies. Airlocks are not required.
