DjuiinoStar Hot Air Stirling Engine

Solid Metal Construction, Electricity Generator (DHA-BG-405)

by DjuiinoStar
What We like

LIGHT UP MULTICOLOR LED: equip 12.5mm big power cylinder with 15mm stroke power piston, this powerful engine will light up the colorful LED on the generator. Electricity generated can be used to power other devices as well. As we get used to observe the whole working process in a bright place, so you may not see the light clearly. But if trying to get this engine model going in a dark room, youll be totally fascinated with the LED shining with a wide range of color in the darkness.

Product Features

  • EASY OPERATION: it's ready to run. All you have to do is to take it out of the box and fill the lamp with 95% alcohol to heat the glass cylinder; then, after warming up for seconds, give the flywheel a spin and it will rotate rapidly and smoothly. It will light up the color-changing LED bulb mounted on the little generator. Just within 5 minutes, people around the machine will be surprised and wonder how it works. A great desktop toy, TONS OF FUN!
  • WIDE APPLICATIONS: It's a vivid model displaying basic principle of external combustion engines. People bought it for kids' science project, physics/mechanics learning, etc., enlightening them to explore more scientific knowledge. This engine is also a well-designed and crafted mechanical toy suitable for people of all ages from all works of life. It will definitely be a fantastic gift for those you love and SELDOM will our machine fail to cheer them up!
  • GREAT GIFT FOR EVERYONE: with visual texture and aesthetic appearance, its simply a piece of art. Our customers are satisfied with its strongly stable structure and exquisite body. This engine is mainly constructed by metal, HEAVY enough to rotate quietly and stably at a speed of around 2300 RPM! Frankly speaking, youll not feel regretful on purchasing of this one. DjuiinoStar stand behind its products, buy with confidence!
  • A WORKING MODEL WITH EXCELLENT TECHNIQUE: brushed aluminum base with 4 rubber pads ensures its stability while working; sandblasting aluminum stand cut by CNC router works well as a solid bridge between cylinder & flywheel; stainless steel bearing rod cut by laser cutter is of an ultra-high precision size; aluminum alloy flywheel has a brighter & smoother surface after the finish turning process; use customized thickened quartz glass as cylinder, durable and safe enough to use for a long time.

  • EASY OPERATION & LONG LASTING----Fill the alcohol burner with your 95% alcohol (we recommend this fuel) and light it. Let the light burn the round ended cylinder for about 60-120 seconds, then give the wheel a gently push, it will run like a charm.
  • EXTREMLY WELL-MADE---- Heating cylinder for the custom-made thick glass material, long-term heating without pressure; It is mainly constructed by metal so it can run quietly and stably (since it is HEAVY, 1.5LB) at speed around 1700 RPM! Our customers are satisfied with the fit and finish of this engine. All the parts have done surface treatment to avoid rusting. You will be pleased once put it on table.
  • NOVEL DESIGNED ----- This engine is a balance style, different from the ordinary Stirling model. It was equipped with a multicolor LED install on the motor. Because of the heat from high-grade alcohol, the engine will run madly and create the electricity. The power will go through the wire and drive the multicolor LED lighting. It's really interesting and imaginative toy.

  • GRACEFUL & UNIQUE DESIGN: This's the only one stirling engine with 16 Cylinders (8 Heating + 8 Cooling). I've played lots of engines in the past 12 years and this's one of the few engines that reminds me how excited when I got my first one. It exhibits real forward thinking physics and engineering, much more than just a toy that runs. I cannot say its workmanship is the best but it's OK; if you take the complexity of this engine and the price into consideration, then it's one of the best.
  • GREAT CONVERSATION STARTER: If you want buy one for science project or so, come on, we have lots of cheaper engines, you DON'T need this one. Buy one as gift for yourself, families, boyfriend or friends(?we have cheaper engines!). This's a well-designed and crafted mechanical toy suitable for adults with kid's heart. It's a great decoration for the desk, and definitely a great conversation starter.
  • Overall Size: 8.9x3.9x5.5 inch(LxWxH); Weight: 1.7 lb; Main material: 6061 aluminum, 304 stainless steel, wood.
  • EASY OPERATION: it's ready to run. This one burns BUTANE (which is often used in lighters). It's quite easy to operate: fill the tanks with butane, open the valves on the tanks, then press buttons beneath the tank to light up the lamp; after warming up for about 30 seconds, turn the propeller and it will rotate rapidly and smoothly. Just within 5 minutes, people around the machine will be surprised and wonder how it works. A great desktop toy, TONS OF FUN!
