The unique Air Engines (also often called a warmth, scorching air, caloric, or Stirling engines), predated the fashionable inner combustion engine. This early engine layout regularly had nice power for prime efficiency/low emission strength iteration. besides the fact that, the first difficulty to its functional use long ago has been the shortcoming of sufficiently heat-resistant fabrics. This quandary has now been eradicated as a result of higher Read more...

Example text

In the general layout there is a lot of similarity between this engine and the Buckett engine shown in the preceding figure. A compressor and expansion cylinder with coupled pistons c and c', and similar valve gear are used in this engine as well, but there the resemblance ends. As it is an external rather than an internal combustion engine, Ericsson’s construction provides for complete separation between working fluid and products of combustion, relocates the valves into the working fluid circuit, and employs a regenerator in an ingenious manner.

6 have been reproduced from these later specifications. 5 a section through the furnace, displacer cylinder assembly, and power piston in an earlier improvement is shown. The regenerator, which in this design was made of cylindrical metal sheets, is here transferred into an annular space surrounding the displacer, so that instead of being carried through the air by the displacer, the air is pushed through this stationary regenerator. The displacer was made of a hollow metal casting which was filled with brick dust.

The feed piston then returns, which closes the valves in the power piston, while the valves in the feed piston open. The exhaust valve D closes when piston A is at inner dead-centre. The working piston continues to travel to the left for a short distance, which compresses the enclosed air slightly. A further pressure rise occurs when the cold air passes through the valves in the feed piston, where the temperature is raised through contact with the hot metal plates. Mechanical work is then delivered to the crankshaft on the outstroke of the power piston by virtue of the expansion of the hot air.
