Thermoacoustic devices are very different from Stirling devices, although the individual path traveled by each working gas molecule does follow a real Stirling cycle. These devices include the thermoacoustic engine and thermoacoustic refrigerator(cold side). High-amplitude acoustic standing waves cause compression and expansion analogous to a Stirling power piston, while out-of-phase acoustic traveling waves cause displacement along a temperature gradient, analogous to a Stirling displacer piston. Thus a Thermoacoustic device typically does not have a displacer, as found in a beta or gamma Stirling.
- Thermoacoustic Cycle Engine runs on external heat source (flame)
- Durable, well made machined parts, sytlish, and adjustable
- Dstar offer parts and FAQ’s on this and all there Engines. DSTAR also offers a limited warranty.
- Unit is 4″ x 6″ by about 3 inches tall
- Similiar to a Stirling engine but runs off a differnt cycle
