THE SUN RUNNER
The Sun Runner, a solar-powered Stirling Cycle Engine, offers a dramatic demonstration of energy conversion. This motor, with its parabolic mirror, can be attached to any conventional camera tripod. When properly aimed at the sun, incoming solar energy is focused on the heat cap of the engine and is converted to rotary motion. Each unit is test run at our factory. Specifications: 2,000 RPM and up, 8-1/4” long x 3” wide, 3/4 inch bore, 3-1/4” flywheel, aluminum precision castings. Parabolic Mirror is 18” diameter.
Unit comes complete with motor, parabolic mirror, and wrenches. (Standard camera tripod not supplied.) Engine is completely assembled and ready to run.
NOTE: This engine is also available without the mirror and can be run as a horizontal engine with our #90 alcohol burner.
