OAKVILLE, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 22, 2015) - Saint Jean Carbon Inc. ("Saint Jean" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SJL), a carbon science company engaged in the development of natural graphite properties and related carbon products, is pleased to announce that the Company, along with their industry partners, will complete a prototype of the recently developed design for a diamagnetic wire that will conduct energy at room temperature with superconducting level resistance. The engineered model will first be prototyped at 36 inches in length. The goal is to measure the energy resistance under varying loads. As an example: a better understanding on how a superconducting wire can greatly enhance the electricity transfer from an electric motor to a battery.
The design works on very simple principles: the outer housing (casing) is a non-conductive rubber compound; the inner sleeve is a resin binder with a high concentration of diamagnetic graphene; the center core is a magnetic graphene wire; the diamagnetic force holds the center core in place while the energy passes along the path of the neutralized middle core. The process to build the wire will take a few months, as the construction design phase has many steps of development. As an example: the percentage of diamagnetic graphene that will be required to determine maximum efficiency.
Superconductors are materials that conduct electricity with no resistance. This means that, unlike the more familiar conductors such as copper or steel, a superconductor can carry a current indefinitely without losing any energy. They also have several other very important properties, such as the fact that no magnetic field can exist within a superconductor. Superconductors already have changed the world of medicine with the advent of MRI machines, which has resulted in a reduction in exploratory surgery. Power utilities, electronics companies, the military, transportation, and theoretical physics have all benefited from the discovery of these materials.
Paul Ogilvie, CEO, commented: "We are very pleased that Saint Jean Carbon is now proceeding to the prototype development aspect of our business and off the laboratory bench. The possibilities, we believe, are truly exciting. The elimination of resistance is not just our goal, but also the goal of all energy transfer. We look forward to announcing the results of our preliminary tests and the first real world application."
The company has filed a patent to cover the intellectual property of the design and materials of the superconducting wire (click link for drawing)
