This 8-cylinder stirling engine is a fully-functioning model capable of speeds of almost 1,200 rpm. It’s powered by burning butane (lighter gas).By circulating compression and expansion of air or other gases.
The Stirling engine model is working fluid operates at different temperature levels, converting the thermal energy into mechanical work.
The engine is like a steam engine. The heat of all the engines flows in and out through the engine wall. The benefit of the Stirling engine is its simplicity and ease of use.
They’ve been used in innumerable industrial applications of the centuries including water pumps, mills, and factory machinery.As in all heat engines, the gen eral cycle consists of compressing cool gas, heating the gas, expanding the hot gas, and finally cooling the gas before repeating the cycle.
