Stirling Engine Kit Motor Model DIY Educational Steam Power Toy Electricity Learning Model
Stirling engines are unique heat engines because of their theoretical efficiency is almost equal to the theoretical maximum efficiency,
Called the Carnot cycle efficiency. The Stirling engine is heated by gas expansion, cold contraction generate power.
Name:Stirling Engine Hot Air Model
-This is an external combustion engine in which the fuel is burned continuously, and the piston is moved by the expansion of air (or helium or hyd rogen) as a medium, and the expansion gas is cooled in the cold chamber, and the cycle is repeated. Only a small alcohol lamp, you can make it fast rotation and strong power.
-As the external combustion engine to avoid the traditional internal combustion engine of the explosion to do work, in order to achieve a high efficiency, low noise, low pollution and low operating costs.
-The biggest advantage of the external combustion engine output and efficiency from the influence of altitude, very suitable for high altitude areas.
- Aerodynamics are rich in knowledge of physics, single cylinder combustion engine. Engine principle is intuitive, educational toys, teaching experimental equipment can effectively cultivate children's interest in learning can also be used for classroom teaching, more intuitive and easy to understand.
-The engine model on the horizontal position by hand toggle the flywheel to see if smooth, if there is a strong sense of raw astringent, check the connection rod is normal, whether the cylinder oil and dust, and if so, please use toilet paper to erase Not smooth. Toggle the flywheel feel pressure rebound within the cylinder body is a normal phenomenon, the cylinder is sealed.
-The packing bag of alcohol lamp cotton wear into the metal cap lamp.
-Please go to the pharmacy to buy 95% purity alcohol, anhydrous industrial alcohol better. Fill the alcohol lamp to less than two-thirds.
-Alcohol lamp to the alcohol lamp, at the premise of ensuring safety, ignite the alcohol lamp about 2 minutes after the flywheel, until the flywheel automatic operation so far, the whole process of heating, hands may not touch.
-Led lights can be directly into the generator output interface, if not inserted, the exchange can be positive and negative, led a long foot for the cathode.
-There will be the operation of steam,when the steam too much time, the engine will stop working,
inside and outside the needle often set aside to reduce friction
-Do not rotate the nut too tightly, otherwise the glass is broken, if the piston is cracked,
can be bonded with glue.
-The alcohol lamp wick do not touch the glass, do not get too tight ring
-Pulling the piston connecting rod can not force the front end, because the front
I expected this engine to be fun but I was disappointed
This engine is well built and has a lovely finish. I expected it to be fun to change the flywheel to see what effect it has on the engine speed and also fun
to see the small "generator" light up the bulb. Unfortunately the engine did not arrive with the extra flywheel nor was an allen key included, so the flywheel could not be changed. Also the bulb did not light up. When running this engine can only produce about 2.5V, so the 5V bulb is never going to work. A nice example of an alpha type sterling engine, but I cannot rate it more than 3 stars because of the missing items
The engine received was not the one shown on the website
This engine runs fantastic, the problem is that the engine they sent does NOT match the item in the picture. I specifically wanted a thermoacoustic stirling engine with an "extended" hot tube. What they sent was the standard "short" hot tube variety. I already have 3 engines of this style, if I wanted another I could have purchased the one from this site for $23.99 or $19.99. Instead, I paid $29.99. This engine comes with bearings in the flywheel mount so it runs exceptionally fast. It is a great engine overall, but unfortunately not the engine in the sales pictures. Based of performance this engine is "5 star", however Sterlingkit should never substitute engines without customer authorization first
Well I have built this little engine was fun to build took me from 11pm to round 7 am the next morning as I was taking my time going to put it on a stand then start it up just waiting for the stand/base for it
A nicely packed kit love how the box is wood and everything is packed in black foam trays instructions are online but the contents are in plastic box’s. Like screw’s nuts and everything else needed to build it
I sent you an email describing my research and asking to speak with your engineers about reversing the rotation. I have had no response. I am a retired electrical engineer researching chirality and Tesla's concepts on Aether and gravity.
