Dear reader,

Our products are now protected by patents. This enables us to delve a bit deeper into the question that everyone asks us: “How does the system work!?”

Let’s start our explanation with a familiar construction everyone knows: A scale. If there are equal weights on a scale, on arms that are equally spaced and with the exact same length, then there will be a perfect balance: Nothing moves.

Now suppose our scales could make a full rotation instead of moving up and down like a seesaw. It now no longer matters whether there are two, three or more arms with weights on the scale: Position the arms at the same distance, with the same length and the same weights, and there will again be balance (no movement).

If one of the arms is shortened (its weight gets closer to the center of rotation), an imbalance will occur. The remaining weights will move down because they are less affected by the movement resistance of the repositioned weight. The longest arm(s) move downwards to find a new balance. During the rotation the centrifugal force has an unfavorable influence on the movement technique.

The AirGravityMill (AGM) called “The Optimist”

With the movement techniques used in the AGM (the invention), the effect in basically the same as the operation of the described rotating scales. In the AGM, however, the imbalance is not caused by shifting a weight towards the center of rotation (shorter arm), but by shifting the force at the push-off points.

Those points in the AGM are alternately used to:

  • Let the weight push itself off
  • To receive the power of the weight
  • At one stationary moment of the weight allow the AGM to temporarily push-off (accelerate)
  • To let the force of the weight jump over a very large distance to another push-off point (removal of resistance).

The resistance on the ascending side with one or more “working weights” is so low that the forces on the descending side are always extremely dominant in the AGM. In addition, the centrifugal force has no negative influences on the applied movement technique during rotation.

Most of the external energy used to keep the system running is preserved (law of conservation of energy) and contributes to the overall yield. Almost all kinetic energy generated in the AGM (free fall with quadratic acceleration of the working weight) can therefore be used to drive a secondary system such as a generator, water pump etc.

We understand that this explanation is still very brief and that without sketches and the necessary details you will not be able to start building your own AirGravityMill. And that is fine: Building an AGM requires more than understanding a basic principle. An AGM is a complex machine with enormous weights that generate extreme forces. All of this must be strictly controlled to make sure that safety is never compromised.

Our priority is to provide a safe, durable, practical and cost-effective system. We invest all our time, energy and resources to achieve this. We will keep you posted on the progress!

Much to our joy, Beautiful Energy (Mooie Energie) receives a lot of attention! The interest is particularly high from abroad. In the coming year, however, we will only deploy our systems in our own region and the Netherlands. Nonetheless there are talks with foreign parties and investors to set up production facilities abroad in a few years’ time.

But of course our priority now lies in the construction of our first large systems. We are reasonably well on schedule. R & D and management have decided to give simplification and possible efficiency improvements priority over the construction speed. Certain parts are made especially for us by third parties and sometimes during construction we find that replacing existing parts by improved ones is just the smart thing to do.
