Applications

The Kinley Duel Mirror System is truly remarkable as it seems that there are unlimited applications for the technology. Everyone who is introduced to the technology seems to come up with another application that had not yet been considered. The System's flexibility shows great potential for the technology to enter many different markets.

Some areas that the technology could prove useful are as follows:

  • Water Applications
    • Distillation
    • Desalination
    • Water purification
    • Waste water treatment
  • Energy Applications
    • Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)
    • Thermal Applications
    • High Grade Steam
    • Domestic Heating & Cooling
    • District Heating & Cooling
    • InSitu (Solar/SAGD)

Gamma II Vaporizes Steel

The LIFE Prometheus team inadvertently vaporized steel using the Gamma II prototype on the 10th of February 2010.  The test, which had initially been intended to be the first steel pour using Prometheus solar technology, quickly became the first vaporization of steel when the steel sample was left in the light focus for a couple extra minutes.  In the time between determining that the sample was ready to pour and preparing an appropriate sand bed for pouring, the steel completely vaporized.  All that was left when the contents of the crucible were dumped out was some slag, the steel had vaporized into thin air.
