Sprengel Evacuation Pump

In order to achieve certain upcoming projects, regarding high exhaustion degrees, a suitable vacuum pump must be devised. Readily available vacuum pumps exist on the market, and may be simply operated by the mains power supply. They have an appropriate market value, and possess long life reliability. Yet in light of applications where a very high degree of exhaustion is required (e.g., Tesla Brush Bulbs), such pumps on the market will not give said levels of atmosphere. Hence, investigation into what was used in the past gave forth the result of the Sprengel Pump. This simplistic device employs falling Mercury droplets, which trap air with each passing, and give way to a steady vacuum. Due to the time it takes to reach a suitable exhaustion degree with the given size of the globe, the evacuation duration may take a few days. Yet in the end, a very suitable result is given. For the following device, glass tubing and glassblowing techniques are employed to reach the desired goal.

Later efforts shall employ Mercury metal, for far better effects will be received. Water was simply used as a demonstration.

Measuring Wave Velocity of Tesla Based Transmission

In regards to determine the effective velocity of longitudinal transmission, I have not seen any quantative researches. Hence, I have looked to my local AM radio station for a reference. This station (KAZN) is located exactly 4.4359 miles from my test point, and broadcasts on a frequency of 1300 kc. Therefore in any attempt to receive the tower’s overground signal, no ionospheric propagation reflection delay will exist. As it is merely the groundwave which presents itself at these short distances.

This experiment is comprised of two different receivers: a Tesla transformer crystal radio setup, and a 1920’s single coil crystal set. The Tesla receiver is Earthed directly to a grounded network, whereas the other set employs an antenna and ground as well. A Rigol 1054z oscilloscope is used to analyze the phase shift of the waveforms. 

Overall setup for reception – a resonant Tesla transformer (terminated to Earth) is shown on the left, whereas a Hertzian crystal set is connected to an antenna on the right. 

In any circumstance, whether it be any local station, or different time of reception, the longitudinal wave broadcasted by the AM transmitter always leads the waveform of the overground signal. That is, the overground signal or transverse electromagnetic wave lags some degree, given it propagates at nearly the speed of light. Taking into consideration the distance this signal must traverse, and the velocity of light in air (186,228 mi/sec.), it takes approximately 0.0000238197 seconds for it to arrive at the receiving antenna. Hence, we can use this as a reference point in determining the velocity of the telluric wave.

In phase relationship of two overground receivers. Yellow is coming from a magnetic loop antenna – based receiver, compared to a seperate receiver employing an antenna and Earth ground. Both are exactly tuned to AM 640, showing equal arrival time of wave’s velocity. 

The following are measurements taken using the KAZN station. Note that it is the audio which is analyzed, so that any receiver phase shifting is not interpreted. The delay time is relating to the advancement of the longitudinal signal.
