Power Tube, Inc. has developed a disruptive new propr-
ietary technology that uses the heat of the earth to
create energy . The device is called the Geomagmatic
Argus A-1 Power Tube. It is a clean energy, closed loop
geomagmatic, renewable power plant. The technology
is the subject of a twenty-two (22) point complete
systems patent based on 4 new technologies and 11
disciplines. The patent was granted in June 2001, and
is owned exclusively by the corporation.
The Argus A-1 unit is a disruptive technology. It is
the first clean energy technology:
The Power Tube differs from standard geothermal
power production substantially. Geothermal Power
Plants are defined by the Energy Information
Administration and NREL as using water or steam
heated from the earth to drive a turbine either directly
or indirectly. Geothermal is only mostly clean energy
because of the ground chemicals released into the air.
Few locations worldwide are ideal for this, as genera
ting power from today's mainstream geothermal plants
require: a) high temperature heat resource (usually
500 degrees or higher) b) access to large bodies of
water, and c) a market which can support a production
price of 5 cents per kilowatt-hour or more. Geothermal
is also a mature industry, where most of the growth
occurred by the late 1980's.The Argus A-1 unit does
not rely on water to drive a turbine. Since it is
completely enclosed, it releases no pollutants into the
air. Due to the significant differences between Argus
and standard geothermal technologies, we have coined
the term geomagmatic.
