The versatile 225CS rotary engine runs on kerosene heavy fuel where a low logistical footprint and higher fash point are required. Combining the advantages of a Wankel engine with patented Compact SPARCS,this multi-fuel unit offers enhanced capabilities in a robust propulsion system for mission-critical applications without compromising on performance.
AIE's rotary engines incorporate a closed-loop dry-sump oil lubrication system. This system not only eliminates wet oil loss during operation but also reduced oil consumption overall reducing exhaust smoke and emissions in comparison with air rotor cooled engines.
All AIE's engine can operate on several fuels including Gasoline, AVGAS, JP-8 and Jet-A1. When configured for multifuel operation, AIE's engines also require no physical modification to the engine system when switching fuels.
A rotary engine is by nature, low vibration power units, with no reciprocating components and three power strokes per rotor revolution, mean power delivery is smoother with less torsional vibration.
Due to AIE's rotary engines fantastic thermal stability, long service intervals ability to operate over a wide range of altitudes and weather condition mission durations are determined by the requirements of the application and operator, not the engine.
Rotary engines have two moving parts, the rotor and the eccentric shaft, by contrast, the average reciprocating engine has 40 moving parts. Less moving parts equals fewer wearing surfaces, better reliability.
By design, rotary engines have high power to weight ratios, the combination of three power strokes per rotor revolution and its continuous rotary motion as opposed to stop-start dynamics of a reciprocating engine give a significant advantage in regards to power density.
When combing all factor such as engine purchase price, operational costs and maintenance requirements the overall simplicity and reliability of an AIE rotary engine delivers an extremely low total cost of ownership in comparison to alternative technologies
AIE patented SPARCS (Self-Pressurising-Air Rotor Cooling System) utilises pressurised gases from the combustion process as a medium for cooling in a sealed engine core, SPARCS provides AIE Wankel rotary engines with longer endurance and zero oil loss for increased performance
With over 80 years' combined experience in engineering design and manufacture, AIE's heritage stretches back to the 1960s. We're market-leaders in the application of rotary engines and this means you won't find a more trusted or knowledgeable engine partner.
All our design, testing and manufacture is done in-house using state-of-the-art equipment. We'll manage your project from concept to end result and you'll benefit from world-class expertise and customer service.
The 225CS engine is a compact and lightweight engine making it easy to integrate into a wide range of applications. You'll benefit from a market-leading power to weight ratio with the 225CS generating 40bhp but weighing just 10 kg.
While other engines may exist they don't feature our patented Compact SPARCS cooling technology. Our revolutionary thermal balancing design means your engine is cleaner and more efficient and reduced wear and tear means that it will last longer. You won't have to repair or replace your engine as often and you'll benefit from a heavier payload carrying capacity and improved endurance.
