Re: Using Toy Stirling as a Heatsink on a lowish TDP CPU

Chance Jackson, I have the exact engine you link to in your post. (however i got it from china --> same engine but cheaper) When i let it run on hot water, and the water cools down it stops when the temperature difference is 20 degrees celsius. Assuming your room temperature is 20 degrees celsius, i...

Re: Thinking of purchasing mill/Lathe

Hi Lars, Cool that you want to purchase a lathe! I'm sure you can make really nice engines when you have it. I'm busy with my engineering course, and worked for the first time with a lathe last week. It is really fun! I had a look at the Proxxon, the quality seems to be really good. Here in the Neth...

Re: Under the Hood, Stirling Engine Vehicles (Photo Catalogu

Hi Hopper, That is nice, i like how they use the Stirling Engine in this application, when you read about it, it's a perfect solution. Where the engine orignially was developed i don't know, however, Kockums developed it further. What i know is that they first equipped a regular submarine with a sti...

Re: Stirling Engine driven vehicle

Hi Ian, Do you know something about for example the boats, how much power should I look for? From what I understand the ST-05 can deliver more power, I thought other companies have done that before. Also a multiple cylinder engine would be nice. If other people have idea's, i'd like to hear them. Ju...

Stirling Engine driven vehicle

Hi all, I've been thinking lately, and i have some plans to combine a stirling engine with a little vehicle. I'm interested in cars, and in stirling engines, so the combination between them has my interest. My plan would be to make a small vehicle, suitable for one person <80 kg. It doesn't have to ...

Re: High powered Stirling going into production

Hi guys from Inresol, I'm very interested in your generator. I have just a few questions. We saw a video about testing a stirling engine, in another video i saw a photo of a test-engine. (Also, why that photo with the production line of that typical cheap gasoline generator?) Somewhere i even saw a ...

Re: Water pump build.tek elements

Hmmm, that sounds really interesting! I think it's more that i get motivated by you. You seem to have much time on your hands to build these things. I'm sorry i can't help you with the flywheel. Do you have a link where you get the peltier elements, or what sort it is? I think it is really possible ...

Re: Building a two-cylinder stirling,now at 1040RPM

Ah, that's just the burner it thougt it would be. They sell them in the netherlands also, and they're relatively cheap.
Good luck with the build!

Re: Water pump build.tek elements

Hi Lars,

Interesting engine!
Do you have any more info about the parts you've used?

I see a fan runningand a sort of radiator? Is it just aluminum parts glued together?
And the water pump, is it right that you use an electric pump?

Keep building!

Re: Help Needed Building a Gamma Type Engine to Run a Model

Hi Rad,

Do you have further news about your engine?
I'd like to see a photo or hear about how it's going, is it already running?
I'm also a bit curious about your heat source, how's that going?

Regards,

Krijn
