Libralato technology

The Libralato engine is based on a completely new concept of engine geometry and thermodynamic cycle. Never before have two rotors with different axes been combined, to produce asymmetrical compression and expansion volumes, where all the engine phases are completed in each revolution. It is capable of diesel-like efficiency (c.40%), but with 50% lower mass and 30% lower cost than a typical reciprocating engine.

Engine phases & cycle

Engine phases & cycle

All the engine phases are completed in each revolution, in parallel: - intake - compression - expansion - exhaust. Compression is on the right side, expansion on the left.
