10-inch Tesla turbine design by Ken Rieli

PNGinc’s 10-inch Tesla turbine

Compressed air prototype of Ken Rieli's 10" Tesla turbine. This turbine became the testbed for experiments that resulted in 30% higher efficiencies over traditional Tesla turbine designs.

This industrial-quality Tesla turbine is great for experimentation using compressed air in your workshop or classroom. Design your own nozzles & observe efficiency.

PNGinc's disc turbine-hydraulic drive

PNGinc's disc turbine-hydraulic drive unit based on Ken Rieli’s pulse detonation turbine. This model used 10" rotors & was shown to a major auto maker - who should have jumped on the opportunity to secure our high-efficiency, low-cost powertrains. - Think fuel efficiency & Turbine Power, Detroit!

Ken Rieliís Level 1  pulse detonation turbine prototype

Ken Rieli’s 4.5” pulse detonation turbine prototype. PNGinc’s first level PDT prototype. After completion the unit was demonstrated to a group of engineers, later to a party of venture investors.
