Caution 
As of October 10, 2012, none of the manufacturers have witnessed a running engine. "It seems to me that what is happening is that by claiming to have run engines before, in undisclosed locations, John Rohner has lured 'manufacturers' to do his research and development of yet un-tried designs." -- Sterling D. Allan, October 10, 2012

Part I: My Concerns About Inteligentry - Here I enumerate several concerns, including the perpetual postponement of manufacturers being shown how to run their engines; encouraging people to buy stock to get their license so the money doesn't go in escrow; John's ignoring great suggestions for the technology and the company; a timeline that evinces a lack of understanding of the steps involved in taking something to market.

The noble (inert) gas engine by PlasmERG, Inc., with very few moving parts could potentially (when mass produced) cost a third, or less, what a regular engine of comparable output costs. Meanwhile, its fuel cost is negligible -- approximately $0.71 per cylinder charge, which lasts a few months. It has a zero carbon footprint.

It's kind of like a Stirling engine -- a sealed system -- except that the expanding component is internal, and comes by way of a plasma form of inert, noble gasses, which are not consumed in the process, and which are environmentally benign anyway. The expansion of the gases moves the piston in a way similar to how steam does.

Known as the "Plasmic Transition Process (tm)" Engine, it is essentially a 3rd generation Papp engine based on PlasmERG designs and discoveries.

This technology could totally revolutionizing the renewable industry, making most solar, wind, geothermal, and other forms of renewable energy obsolete because it would be so much more clean, reliable and affordable.

John Rohner and Haik Biglari think they have figured out how it works, and have come up with improvements that they think will make the engine commercially viable. They say they have interested a number of universities and engine corporations with the computer modeling the have done. The first six test engines are expected to be completed by Dec. of 2009. They will be trying various gas combinations.

John Rohner says that two of the universities involved plan to begin teaching this as a new science in the semester or quarter following successful demonstration of the technology.

These test engines purportedly will output 120 HP, running on two cylinders, 120 cubic inches total displacement. Rohner thinks that the life expectancy of such an engine would be in the range of 500k to 800,000 miles.

Three companies have been created to handle various facets of this technology, and all are now "ready to go." Rohner Motor Inc. will handle the motor manufacturing. Plasmic Controls Inc. will handle the motor control units. Plasmerg will handle licensing and patents. John Rohner says 1/2 of each company is available in stock.

Others who have been in the Papp / noble gas engine industry for a long time have expressed skepticism about the Rohner's claims, but would be glad to see someone actually accomplish the things the Rohners say they will be able to do. The industry has a long and somewhat bloody history.

John Rohner's competitor brother, Bob, has been particularly active in fighting against PlasmERG's progress.

How it Works

Image:Rohner block half plus internal 200.gif


"A hermeticly sealed gas chamber is filled with a charge of a relatively inexpensive, abundant, and harmless special inert gas. This gas is subjected to a controlled Excitement, to create a powerful Plasmic Transmisive Process expansion, now patented by PlasmERG, reversal, of the Process causes a contraction, recombination, leaving the gases ready to cycle again."
"This engine does not require any oxygen to operate nor does it expel anything. That makes it virtually atmospheric pollutant free. There is oil to lube the bearings and some very minut amount of that could become gaseous so it is not perfect and it creates no discernible heat. The small heat rise is one of the points that traditional physicists jump on to say it "can not" work. They did this to "Cold fusion" too. They know that according to the conservation of energy theory, no energy can be provided without a direct proportion of heat."

22" wide, 10" long, 8" tall. Put out around 135 HP (between 120 - 150 HP, depending on gas mixture). Licensing the technology. 1 kW; 5 moving parts, no valves, no cam shafts. Bearings are roller bearings. About 1/3 cost; up time over 1 million MTBS. Will require servicing, at end of fifth cycle ~ 4 years.

An anonymous PES Wiki contributor wrote:

"It is an internal combustion (IC) engine that has no intake and no exhaust ports, or even a radiator. The engine’s primary input fuel is electrical power to run the ignition electronics, which pulse a mixture of noble gases to help form charged plasma. The motor has a hermetically sealed cylinder & piston assembly containing a noble gas mixture of helium, neon, argon, krypton, and xenon. These gases get preconditioned and then subjected to precise controlled electronic, magnetic and mechanical manipulation and radiation effects to create a powerful expansion and contraction effect. Multiple electrodes of complex design produce what is believed to be a very hot electric discharge plasma in the noble gas mixture that reaches unusual conditions liberating energy from some yet unknown source that is about 100 times greater than the energy put into the electrodes. Roughly 1kW is needed to run the motor’s electronic controls and over 100 hp comes out. Two- and four-cylinder engines were built over the years from 1968 until Joseph Papp died of colon cancer in 1989. Replication the original engine is difficult without the understanding of the inner workings of the entire engine and gas mixture and ignition timing. Moreover, a 2-stroke design vs. 4-stroke design has been the favored optimal configuration. There is only a two stroke - four stroke is impossible. - BR

Videos

Note
These videos which are claimed to be from Rohner Motor are in fact videos created by Bob Rohner which show the history of Bob and Tom's involvement with Papp and the engines built by them. John Rohner and Haik Biglari were in no way involved with the design, operation, or testing of these engines.

(4.25 Minutes)

  • Papp Gas Plasma Engine - This dyno video shows Bob's engine putting out over 100hp. A DC motor to drive this would weigh 3/4 of a ton and need #000 wires.

That's also Bob Rohner's certified AW Dyno it is connected to. (YouTube; June 26, 2008)

(1 hour 11 Minutes)

  • Jim Sabori's Papp Engine A two-cycle engine demonstrates power output up to 500 HP on a dynamometer; and a one-cycle engine with Plexiglas cylinder shows ignition of noble gas in vacuum process, which current physics says is impossible. (Google Video; March 15, 2006)

Once again, people don't know what they are seeing. The dyno is not reading 500 horsepower, it's reading 11 horsepower at 500 ft-lbs of torque at about 115 rpm. In addition you should note that the engine putting out this low speed power is the one built by Bob and Tom Rohner and the video is just a copy of our work. Regarding the one-cylinder, the credit should go to a Mr. Herb Gambol an associate of Bob Rohner's for discovering this reaction. It should be noted that the noble gas is not in a vacuum at all since by being there, it is not a vacuum. Also note that "ignition" is a very poor choice of words, since it implies an explosion requiring oxygen of which there is none. If people are to ever understand the Papp engine and believe in its abilities, it is important to keep the terms straight. Above, John Rohner says its like a sterling engine, it however, has nothing in common with this type of motor. (Bob Rohner)

Abstract 
An internal expansion engine having a housing. Secured to the housing is a cylinder defining an expansion chamber. A piston is provided within the cylinder defining a wall of the expansion chamber. A charge of noble gas is provided within the expansion chamber. A magnetic field generator and fadio frequency power generator is provided around the expansion chamber and an initiator system is located within the expansion chamber. The magnetic field generator, radio frequency power generator and initiator system coact to cause the noble gas to expand, pushing against the piston and generating work. The actions of the engine are monitored and controlled by an intelligent electronic control system that provides all switching needed to operate the engine and communicate with outside elements providing external control of information sources.

    Psychic Reading of John Rohner — Physical Danger - Q. has he ever had one of these engines running? A. He has, but has had a lot of setbacks; things didn’t go right; has to re-do, breaking down, re-do, seeing what went wrong... Lets ego get in the way of admitting where he's at. In discussing, he jumps ahead of where he's actually at. Certainly not ready to go into production. The configuration as it is could be emitting dangerous fields...
