This is a steam turbine with a unique design. The turbine itself is surrounded in a clear
chamber made from strong yet clear acrylic. Around 300ml of water is stored at the
bottom ready to heated and turned into steam. When the turbine is spinning, water
is drawn up into the upper section creating a 1mm layer of water against the turbine wall.
Gas is combusted in a jet nozzle directly above the rotor heating it up considerably.
Water is boiled and turned into steam. The pressure increases and it is force out the sides
through nozzles. The nozzles are directed towards a series of vertical tubes. The steam
can condense in the tubes turn back into warm water and falling back into the water
The Turbine has an electric motor to get it up to 3000rpm, at that point the gas valve is
opened and the lighted.
