Recessive Spiral Pump (from Internet Glossary of Pumps)
Recessive Spral Pump

This pump category, now internationally patented, was invented by Australian naturalist and marine designer Jayden Harman after decades of study of the plant and animal kingdom.

The basic design of the impeller is a logarithmic spiral shape variously known as a Phi Ratio, a Phi Geometry, a Fibonacci Sequence, or a Proportional Spiral. In three dimensions, these patterns can be called Recessive Spirals. To visualize a recessive spiral, imagine the inside of a conch shell. Of course, nature never needs to mathematically determine a Fibonacci sequence, but she has nevertheless once again pointed us in the proper direction, a direction which we can only follow if enough numbers are crunched and experimental designs tested. One impeller variation is shown in the photo.

By smoothly accelerating the fluid centripetally (towards the center), and by minimizing turbulence, Recessive Spiral pump designs lessen vibration, and reduce or even have a negative heat gain, while delivering more thrust with virtually no cavitation. Advance the technology through the use of computer design, 3-D molding techniques, studies across hundreds of plant, animal, and other natural implementations of the Phi geometry, and build and test refinement after refinement of the basic concepts, and you have a pump which can move extraordinary amounts of fluid with incredible efficiency.
