Eddie Sturman Digital Engines

imageEddie Sturman invented a valve for irrigation in Israel. It was safer than manual turn off which could get you shot. His shuttle valve used residual magnetism so power would no longer need to hold the solenoid. This valve was one of the reasons Apllo 13 made it back. This valve then found its way into Diesel engines. Digital fuel injection reduced emissions significantly. He then used the valve to digitally control air in engines as well. Then he used it to control piston position and energy transmission. Imagine this new engine hooked to a carbon fiber accumulator. Fluid power and ammonia as a fuel needs more attention. http://www.trucktrend.com/cool-trucks/1104dp-sturman-industries-camless-engine-systems/photo-gallery/
