Frequently Asked Questions

What is Fisonic Device?

The Fisonic Devices (FDs) are supersonic, condensing heat pumps with a patented internal geometry which causes steam and water to mix and accelerate, converting a minute fraction of fluid's thermal energy to physical trust (pump head) with the outlet pressure higher than the pressure of the working medium at the inlet of the device.

What's so unique about the device?

The FDs harnesses the transonic-energy that occurs from directly mixing steam and water. It operates with high expansion and small compression ratios. The discharge pressure in the FDs is typically higher than the pressure of the working and injected streams. The result is a hyper-efficient, self-pumping, heat-exchanger that has no moving parts The FD heats the recirculated building water by direct contact with steam and transports the water through-out the building thus eliminating the tube and shell heat exchanger and the electrically driven pump.

How does Fisonic Device convert heat to power?

FD converts the minute fractions of the streams thermal energy to physical thrust. Our thermal kinetic turbine utilizes the thrust to propel itself and converts the kinetic energy into mechanic energy that feeds into a generator and produces power.

How to install Fisonic systems?

Fisonic systems can be easily installed without service disruption. We install our systems as a by-pass to the existing steam/ hydraulic heating and hot water system with three valved piping connections. Our system is compact in size and can be rolled into a facility for install. Our system includes the stand, the box, a control system and a monitor that will display data streaming in real time. The controls system can also connect to the property's Modbus or BACnet system.

What are the benefits of Fisonic Devices?
  • Energy Savings: Reduce the energy cost to existing and new businesses. Estimates demonstrate that use of FPDs will reduce their annual electric consumption by about 80% and the steam consumption by about 16% when compared with the existing system.
  • Water and sewer savings: Improve the efficiency of the district steam system. Estimates demonstrate that the make-up water flow rate and the total water flow rate to be discharged to the sewer for the FPD system can be reduced by about 50%.
  • Environmental benefits: No emission. No venting needed.
  • Economic benefits: Facilitate the long-term business growth in the district heating service territory and enhance economic development.
