Mildura Twin Cylinder Vertical Steam Engine - Reversing for RC Installations
Mildura Twin Cylinder Vertical Steam Engine - Reversing for RC Installations
Ref: 4963
MILDURA
A twin cylinder reversing engine as pictured. The reversing lever is specific for RC operation.

The Mildura is the most popular in our range with most modellers opting for the Stephenson's Reversing Linkage. The crank throws are at 90º giving the engine self starting characteristics at any position of the crankshaft. By adding Stephenson's reversing linkage the Mildura becomes a marine steam engine capable of powering model steamboats up to seven feet long on a boiler pressure of about up to 80 psi.

3/4" Bore x 3/4" Stroke, and a 3-1/8 flywheel diameter
Weight 2000 gms:

Mildura Engine Origins:

The Mildura steam engine is typical of many steam engines used to pump water from the inland river systems of Victoria and New South Wales (NSW) for irrigation purposes during the 19th and early 20th century. This was started by George Chaffey who left Los Angeles in 1886 to set up Australia's first large irrigation project at Mildura.

MS5009
Miniature Steam Clyde Twin Cylinder Oscillator Engine, fully assembled
Supplied fully assembled the Clyde twin cylinder oscillator engine, from Miniature Steam, has an 11mm bore/stroke and is
designed to operate on steam pressures between 30 and 45psi.
The engine’s cast components are from a marine grade non-corrosive alloy which will not tarnish or corrode like traditional brass alloys often used in inferior model oscillator designs. The crankshaft is from stainless steel and the remainder of the machined components from brass.
This combination gives maximum protection from corrosion and helps to give excellent life to the engine.

Height - 85mm
Width (with displacement lubricator) - 80mm

Clyde Miniature Steam 3
Clyde Miniature Steam 3" Centre Flue Style Horizontal Boiler
Ref: 4954
3" Horizontal Boiler

MS5045
Miniature Steam 3" Centre Flue Style Horizontal Boiler
This 3 horizontal centre flue style boiler system, from Miniature Steam, is designed to run small medium pressure model steam engines of up to 19mm (3/4) bore/stroke in Single Cylinder and 16mm (5/8”) bore/stroke in Twin Cylinder with an operating pressure of up to 60psi. As shown, the traditional design of this boiler system - the steam dome with collar and flue with collar and the integral cast feet - will add to the charm and feel of any model you care to mount it in. The cast feet also mean that the boiler can be mounted anywhere, there is no need for a specialised mounting tray, making installation a simple process, even in tricky models. Pressure gauge, walnut lagging timber and brass securing straps are also included.
The boiler also features the Miniature Steam Ceramic Burner (MS5092). This burner is cast from ceramic and has been specifically designed to provide optimum burning characteristics in enclosed spaces such as the centre flue or firebox of a boiler. They are entirely different to inferior ceramic burners made from heating tiles designed for radiant room heaters! The gas/air mixture of the Miniature Steam ceramic burner burns outside the ceramic insert. This results in a more efficient transfer of heat to the boiler’s heating surface. The burner also remains relatively cool, thus improving the thermal efficiency of the burner and minimising the chance of back burning.

NOTE: The Horizontal Boiler is pressure tested before shipping and is therefore supplied with test certificate.

Exhaust Oil Trap

MS4001
1-1/4" Exhaust Oil Trap
The exhaust oil trap, from Miniature Steam, separates the oil from the water in the exhaust system of the engine and is a mandatory item in many countries that permit use of steam engine models for hobby use.
Lubrication oil, that is essential to prevent wear of engine components during use, is carried to the exhaust with the steam and must be separated for ecological reasons.
The engine exhaust gases pass through this product and it gather the excess lubricating oil. It must therefore be removed from time to time and a 10 ml syringe is supplied with the unit to enable periodical removal of extracted oil through the port shown in the image.
Inlet and exhaust pipes are a standard 4.7mm (3/16”) copper tube and are normally made with “slip on” rubber tube supplied with the unit.
This is essentially a passive item in a power assembly and is suitable for up to twin cylinder engines with bore/stroke up to 11 mm.
Dimensions:

Cylinder Diameter: 1-1/4" (31.8mm)
Cylinder Height 2" (51mm)
Height Overall 3 " (75mm)
Piping 3/16" (4.7mm) for connection with "slip on" rubber hose supplied
