Referring again to Fig. 2 the primary wheel, this wheel is not a solid wheel, it is made up of cut flat strap, very common in the industry, Stainless Steel 3/16" thick or .1875", quality 304 or better and also some solid round Aluminum Billet 6061-T6 or better. The primary wheel also has common bolts made of Stainless Steel, and a fluid flow system.
(a) a hub ; (b) a cylinder block arrangement stationarilly attached to said hub ; (c) a hydraulic pump actuator releasably attached at each outside end of said cylinder block arrangement ; and (d) a hollow cylinder held moveably within the said cylinder block arrangement .
All of the component elements exampled in Fig. 13 below are included to comprise one primary wheel of the present invention, and to enable it to perform as stated within the claims to be read on in further text. For now referring to Fig. 13 to the far left is "the cylinder block arrangement" and specifically designated 121. and moving to the right 129. "the twin sheave", and attaching to the cylinder block arrangement. To the far right of the cylinder block arrangement is an emergency braking embodiment 130. and 131. .
Now referring to the Fig. 12 below examples the "cylinder block arrangement" in an exploded view, including : (a) 110. a primary wheel plate, two per cylinder block arrangement ; (b) 111. the "outer hub" also functions as a hydraulic fluid distribution manifold, two per cylinder block arrangement ; (c) 109. the "inner spool hub" also functions as a hydraulic fluid reservoir ; (d) 112. and 113. the "hollow cylinders" and also functions as moveable ballast ; (e) 114. through 117. is an "actuator" that pumps hydraulic fluid two per cylinder block arrangement ; (f) 118. a "hydraulic fluid conduit", two per cylinder block arrangement .
It takes only one cylinder block arrangement to make one primary wheel of the present invention. It is designed to begin it's rotation with the hollow cylinders filled with water. As the primary wheel rotates faster and faster the water filled cylinders move outward against the biasing spring of 117. . The push rod 116. then moves into actuator cylinder 115. and forces hydraulic fluid to flow through conduit 118. and into the hub/hydraulic fluid distribution maniforld 111. . Now referring to Fig. 15 below .
