Abstract : The patent relates to a device for converting the output of a fluid amplifier into rotational mechanical energy. Ratchet teeth are arranged upon both internal ends of a cylinder for engagement with ratchet teeth provided on both faces of a disc axially movable within the cylinder. A shaft, connected at one end to the central portion of the disc and at its other end to a diaphragm, transmits to the disc the oscillatory motion imparted to the diaphragm by switching the output of a fluid amplifier from one side of the diaphragm to the other. Upon oscillation, the engagement of the disc and cylinder teeth causes the cylinder to rotate.
