Adjusting the distance between the lower endplate and the Revolving Shutter
By assembling the Green Revolution Energy Converter LabModel v.2 with its two
Revolving Shutter (RS) layers we could turn the shaft of the Revolving Shutters with
an electric screw driver and listen for eventual friction, and yes, there was
a rhythmic grinding sound.
Both end-plates was mounted to make sure that the roller bearings would keep
the Revolving Shutter shaft in a totally perpendicular line to both of the
end-plates and also to the middle fin layer.
By opening up the Green
Revolution Energy Converter (GREC) we looked for friction traces guiding us how to adjust the
distances between the two Revolving Shutters and the conducting and isolating
surfaces (fins). We started with analysing the distance between the lower
end-plate and the bottom surface of the lower Revolving Shutter disk.
To the left is the aluminium cold coducting fin of the bottom endplate. In
the middle are the two end-plate integrated insulating surfaces (blue colour).
To the right is the aluminium warm coducting fin of the bottom endplate. In the
middle there are distances used to keep the correct measure between the end
plate surfaces and the lower part of the Revolving Shutter.
