Plug An Engine Into Your Wood Stove for Electricity.
posted 3 years ago
We just released a heat engine for generating electricity.
We make a
burning fire box for it but would love to see some folks retro fit the engine into their
for a true Combined Heat and Power Appliance.
The engine is a stirling engine and runs off of externally applied heat (~400F). Heat can be from wood, natural gas,
, bio-waste, or waste heat to name a few.
The output of the engine can be configured to between 100 Watts to 1000 Watts dependent upon the temperature and pressure that you run it at.
You can see some of the development at volodesigns-sterlingproject.blogspot.com or visit www.seftonmotors.com
We're hopping this can have an impact on the improving the use application of wood stoves for getting off the grid.
A feeble attempt to tell you about our stuff that makes us money
