The APT SonicFlow 2-cycle internal combusion engine uses acoustic wave dynamics to enhance gas exchange through the engine via a combination of acoustic and mechanical assemblies coupled with an isolated crankcase impeller. Utilizing these combined technologies, both the intake and exhaust processes permit a major advancement in two-cycle engine scavenging efficiency and a cleaner separation of the critical gas exchange processes, and enables oil-less 2-cycle engine operation.
