Free Piston Stirling Engine Kit

Free Piston Stirling Engine

What is a Stirling engine and how do they work?
Stirling engines convert thermal energy into mechanical energy. These stirling engines take a temperature difference between the top and bottom, and turn it into mechanical energy, moving the piston up and down. Simply placing a cup of warm coffee/tea underneath is enough for it to work.

This Stirling engine cannot run from the heat of your hand. We only recommend running them on a cup of hot water. They are in kit form and need to be assembled.
