Called “thermal deflector”, destined to protect the supra-aspiring air filter against thermal radiations. It is said to be useful in summertime to keep air temperatures low and avoid power leakage from the engine because of heat.
“In summertime, the engine may lose 20 per cent of power because of heat. This deflector will keep temperatures low, while offering the motor constant power both in spring and in autumn,” Birtok Baneasa explained.
In the inventor’s opinion, the jury appreciated the performances of his invention, and also the fact that by slashing fuel consumption, the device contributes to a diminishing of the pollutants emitted into the atmosphere by the vehicles where it might be used.
“The thermal deflector is not only limited to the automotive industry. It could also be used in constructions. Obviously, researches could be extended to and diversified with regards to its usefulness,” said Corneliu Birtok Baneasa.
In the opinion of the Deva-born engineer, the Romanian research needs a higher financial support, as an efficient way to contribute to the development of the national economy.
At the Brussels Innova Fair, Birtok Baneasa has represented Romania alongside the team selected by the National Authority for Scientific Research and Innovation (ANCSI).AGERPRES
