Testing TWIN And TRIPLE Micro Steam Engines


A steam engine is a heat engine that performs mechanical work using steam as its working fluid. The steam engine uses the force produced by steam pressure to push a piston back and forth inside a cylinder.In this video we have a video from JohnnyQ90 where he tests two micro steam engines The two cylinder KACIO LS2-14 and the three cylinder KACIO LS3-13S steam engine.

Both engines design is inspired by the steam engine during Renaissance. In order to be more realistic, the black and brass color make it more classic and durable, by casting & electro-coating. What’s more, we specially made an integrated crankshaft for stable performance.

The engines consists of precision casting produced shape parts each carefully made with excellent surface finish & dimensional accuracy and checked to ensure reliability in service. surface electrophoresis treatment does not fall off for a long time.


The spindle sleeve is made of high-hardness beryllium copper, which is resistant to friction and guarantees long-term operation.Oil cup with oil discharge function, side of piston connecting rod is equipped with lubricating oil filling port, each friction surface can get good lubrication, prolong service life.The steam engines are specially designed for steam model ships between 80CM and 120CM in length. It supports forward and reverse rotation, and the large diameter cylinder provides strong torque for the propeller. In order to ensure power, it is recommended to equip with efficient boiler and various valve accessories (not included in the product, please provide or purchase separately)./stirlingkit
