Steam Power Plant
Considering the Mounster Design modern steam engine
- Heat exchanger - generates 10 hp of steam with liquid fuel. Strategy: use a commercial steam cleaning generator -
- DIY - wound water level generator, Ofeldt type - by Tom Kimmel
- Oiler - Madison Kipp - $400 Ebay
- High pressure water water pump - 500 psi as in high pressure sprayers - 3 GPM, 500 PSI, $250 at Surpluscenter
- Oil-Water separator -
I am trying to source parts for the Steam Plant for a Mounster Engine.
I have no clue about water oil separators, nor do I have a good idea on off-shelf steam generators. The water pump and oiler appear to be ok - please verify the $400 one from Ebay and the water pump from Surpluscenter.
Then again, the Mounster plans include a feed pump and oil pump - so I don't need to buy those?
I would like to put a steam plant together in a Power Cube frame - where our goal is to begin using this as a real power unit for our tractors, as a replacement for this Power Cube. I would like this to fit in a 4x3x3 foot frame, which can be attached modularly to a tractor or other machines.
Please shed some light on the sourcing issues.
If we get the steam plant together - would you allow it to be tested with your engine? Perhaps we can hire Terry to assist in this prototype. It would be a quick proof of concept as we build out the Wally Mounster here, and transition the burner to pelletized biomass.
