Starting Air System for Diesel Engine

| Starting air system for diesel engine - how it works Function of starting air system Diesel engines are started by supplying compressed air into the cylinders in the appropriate sequence for the required direction. A supply of compressed air is stored in air reservoirs or 'bottles' ready for immediate use. Up to 12 starts are possible with the stored quantity of compressed air. The starting air system usually has interlocks to prevent starting if everything is not in order. A starting air...

The Watt Steam Engine

Watt Steam Engine, Industrial Revolution in England The Watt steam engine (alternatively known as the Boulton and Watt steam engine) was the first type of steam engine to make use of steam at a pressure just above atmospheric to drive the piston helped by a partial vacuum. Improving on the design of the 1712 Newcomen engine, the Watt steam engine, developed sporadically from 1763 to 1775, was the next great step in the development of the steam engine. Offering a dramatic increase in fuel efficiency...

cooling system

THE COOLING PUMPS AND COOLING SYSTEMS DEFINITION OF TERMS Cooling System - equipment in a motor vehicle that cools the engine. Water Cooling is a method of heat removal from components and industrial equipment. As opposed to air cooling, water is used as the heat conductor. Water cooling is commonly used for cooling automobile internal combustion engines and large industrial facilities such as steam electric power plants, hydroelectric generators, petroleum refineries and chemical plants...

Difference Between Hybrid And Electric Cars

battery to supplement a standard internal combustion engine and this engine is mainly used to support the gas engine only. It increases the fuel efficiency of the car by 25% at least. The electric motor aims at minimizing idling and boosting the car’s ability to start and accelerate. The electric motor accelerates the car to about 40 mph, depending on the vehicle, and then the internal combustion engine takes over. The battery is recharged by the gasoline engine and regenerative braking. Regenerative...
