Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Appleby's Illustrated Handbook of Machinery, Vol. 1: Prime Movers; Including Fixed, Portable and Marine Engines, Boilers, Locomotives, Steam Launches, Heated Air, Gas and Water Engines, Turbines, and Water Wheels

Heated-air engines. Although numerous attempts have been made to introduce het air engines, and many have been worked for considerable periods {stirling's engines worked the Dundee foundry for many years, developing 45 horse-power), they have never hitherto given good commercial results in large sizes; but for small powers they compare favourably with small steam engines, at least in economy of fuel. Although more bulky, and consequently much higher in first cost than steam engines of equal power, it must not be overlooked that no boiler is required which reduces the total cost to near that of the engine and boiler together; when once started, they will run for hours without any attention, and owing to the low pressures generally employed, and the absence of boilers, there is no risk of explosion. In Wenham's patent engines, tabulated particulars of which are given below, the air is heated in a closed combustion chamber by direct contact with the fuel, and passes with the gases evolved into the cylinder. The cylinder is single acting, the upper part of it being arranged to serve as an air pump, and there is the usual regenerator for economising fuel.
