Can you make it work as Stirling cooler ?

Author NOBOX7 (7 months)
this would also make a nice air pump or oil pump or a water pump

check valves it could be connected with several units making a powerful

Author barumman (6 years)
Sorry I made no drawings, They are in my head, I cut the metal and make
things fit as I go along.

Author eloid777 (4 years)
can make a video of this unit assembled one piece at a time for the
displacer and piston

Hi, Thanks for the interest, Sorry nothing for sale.

Oh yes! Lovely job. 5* Please do tell us how much power!!

Author fassenkugel (6 years)
it is possible to get the mechanical drawing or at least some parameter of
ur motor? i would like to rebuild in pressurised form. i think i can do
easy from this an 2..500W generator.

Author Win Rijssenbeek (2 years)
Marvelous machine: how many watts output? 5 watt? how much it weighs? Do
you see potential for use in remote areas in developing nations? Is there
any idea on the wear of the materials you use. I do not see any flexures
like in the Nasa Design? Is it a pure air spring? To what extent you think
it can be pressurised? best Winfried

Author barumman (5 years)
Sorry Sam, I havn't made any drawings Best wishes.

Author douro20 (5 years)
This is the same basic design as Infinia's engines except they have much
larger field coils, they are liquid cooled, and they are sealed in a
titanium vessel pressurized to over 2000psi.

Author fassenkugel (6 years)
on atm pressure u cant make a lot powaaa. because the pressure difference
is not enough. but this machine in closed box at 30..100bar pressure can do
3..500W mechanical power. this linear generator is loks very primitiv. u
can get cheap linear motor from membran pupmps. that about
2..300W/230V/50hz. or u can use for lower power like this biger loudspekaer
coil+magnet. both have a god effiency. and self starting is possible with
short impulse to coil, from butt or whatever.

@studioLivingDead Correct.

Author eloid777 (4 years)
correct me if im wrong if the displacer has no seal / rings around it....
is there a ring at the very bottom of the piston or is the that also just
.005 fit? any info on the length an od of the displacers and size of

Author barumman (6 years)
Thanks for the comments Richard and mowerofdoom, that name frightens me!, I
have not measured the power output, it is probably less than 0ne watt

Author eloid777 (4 years)
can some explain some thing for me ... does air flow around the displace
pistion or does it just for it up and down, im assummin there are seals on
the displacer cylinder or or the displacer rod? I try to understand how
this works

@barumman great design , good idea to cut out all the ineeficint machanery

Hi, excellent video, it is that can make a video of how to build the

how to build the motor. it is in writing, we use the translator google text

There is no mechanical connection to the displacer,it is driven

Author Michael Crumpton (6 years)
So is the displacer driven similarly to a ringbom type engine?

Author fassenkugel (6 years)
a simple question: there is any connection between the displacer and power
piston? it is extended rod configuration? so the displacer is moved by
presure wave of power piston?

can you draw a sketch your design

Author barumman (5 years)
Thank You, :)

Author barumman (6 years)

Author barumman (6 years)
Hi Richard, No glasses ;) the rattle is caused by a spring that biases the
displacer to the middle of travel,I didn't fasten it in order to avoid any
side thrust which would have increased friction on the displacer actuating
piston which is in effect an air bearing. As for the power output, you are
an optomist. It is my own design, no plans. Thanks for the interest & the

@xyanide1986 I seldom use drawings, I might draw a rough sketch my
workbench sometimes but mostly I have the idea in my head, I just cut the
metal and make each piece fit as I go along. This method can be wastfull of
materials and labour sometimes. :) :) Cyril

Author specallez (4 years)
Sweet engine! You should be able to get more power if you use neodymium
magnets, it doesn't look as though your generator is loading the engine at
all. Have you measured the output ?

Author junkman6261 (6 years)
that is neat! You make it all? It just lights the two light?
