The Stirling Engine An engine for the future



In a Stirling engine heat is produced in a combustion chamber separated from the actual engine. The heat is tranferred to the engine's working gas, operating in a completely closed system. The working gas forces the pistons in the engine to move, thus producing mechanical energy.

All that the Stirling engine needs is heat and it does not matter how the heat is produced. It can come from sun radiation or from anything that burns: oil, diesel, petrol or gas.


In addition, the Stirling engine is flexible, silent and virtually vibration-free. All these characteristics open a wide field of applications.

Stirling and the environment

The practically unlimited choice of fuel makes the Stirling engine extremely flexible. Furthermore, the fact that the Stirling external-combustion engine is one of the cleanest engines in the world makes it a very interesting alternative for the future. The engine's efficiency and environmental properties are continually being improved.
