Default Unusual CS diesel.

Came across this on youtube the other day. A new use for lister type of CS engine. Note the unusual use of an additional oil pump.

Or ahead considering it will run on anything which burns rather than just refined fuels! 25hp though - must give the bottom end something to think about.

Nice piece of work, especially given they have considered water carryover protection, but that in itself reveals something, they are using low temp, unsuperheated steam, so I'm very sceptical that it is producing even a nominal 25hp, 2.5hp would be closer to the mark.

Appears to be using a 'Yarrow' type boiler.

I'm no expert in hot fog things, but the thermal losses must be huge with all that unlagged pipework, and as Paul says, 25hp is a bit fairy-tale.

It uses what was possibly a redundant engine, and wood is cheaper than diesel fuel, but horribly inefficient all the same.

Probably true - I sort of assumed they had at least done a basic 'P.L.A.N' calculation.

I think it was more for the camera than a practical setup.
