Stirling Engine Kit

Description

This hot-air single-cylinder Stirling engine generator converts thermal energy into mechanical energy. This kit comes with a little electricity generator that can power a USB reading light.

The Stirling engine comes as an easy-to-build kit with all the parts and tools included, and a printed sheet with instructions and explanations. Building the kit takes about 15 minutes. The assembled motor measures 16 x 8 cm and is 10.5 cm high. It weighs 380 grams.

  1. Turn the flywheel by hand to ensure it moves smoothly.
  2. Check that the sliding parts are clean.
  3. Fill the alcohol lamp to less than two-thirds full with 95% or higher concentration alcohol.
  4. Light the alcohol lamp at the front end of the test tube.
  5. After about 1 minute, turn the flywheel.

The engine should start spinning. Note that the warm-up time is slightly longer when using the generator.
