The Transparent Stirling Engine is ideal for quantitative investigations of cyclic thermodynamic processes and specifically for understanding the Stirling cycle. The integrated generator has a two stage belt pulley and is equipped with a switchover option for operating an integrated lamp, external loads, or demonstrating the processes of a heat pump or refrigerator. Includes integrated engine generator and alcohol burner. Fuel not included; please use methylated-spirits, i.e. denatured alcohol.
