Heat Powered Stove Fan – Stirling Engine Design
How do Stirling engines work?
Stirling engines use heat to work. Importantly they do not require any electricity and they do not have any electrical components in their construction.
When a Stirling engine is placed on or above a heated surface such as a log burner or an alcohol burner or even a tea light candle, it will begin to run.
It works by moving a sealed volume of air from the hot base to the cool top plate of the engine. The air is rapidly heated and cooled as it moves from the cool top plate to the hot base. The warm air expands and causes the piston to push up. While the cool top plate rapidly cools the air and causes it to contract. This results in a vacuum which pulls the piston down. The same volume of air is rapidly heated and cooled many times per second, extracting energy for the engine to work.
Stirling engines are purely mechanical and operate quietly which makes them highly desirable for certain applications. While they require great precision to build, you will be rewarded with exceptional reliability, power and longevity.
Warpfive Stirling engines are silent miniature engines which use mechanical power to rotate a fan blade. Not only will you will be fascinated by their distinctive appearance, you will also enjoy excellent Stirling engine performance.
