AIR MOTOR

Down one first version of the air motor can be seen, counts on a single valve of exit and it does not have entrance valve, although it does not work very well is very easy to construct. 



This motor works when blowing in a paper glass. This causes that a thin plastic diaphragm is inflated (polythene) that it as well pushes the axis. The axis hauls a thread that opens and closes one vávula of exit. This vávula becomes of the neck of a globe. It has a small card piece peghada in the part superior that allows that the globe piece is closed and opens appropriately. A piece of tubito of drinking straw was placed to drink soda water as support of the valve, but soon this design giveave
.




Down, detale of vávula without the card piece.

motor that is seen down is easier to construct and more efficient,

one moves by the air that contains a globe, this opens

possibility of constructing self-propelled vehicles.

This motor can be used as steam motor.

In the photo of above e is seen
l motor funciornando with the help

of the steam produced inside a center.


Down the attempt is seen make it work as locomotive.

Because the centers were broken frequently is better to do

that it works with small soda water tins or other tins.

So that it works had to directly place the globe on the “boiler?

instead of using a tube for the steam.


The boiler was placed within the burner. (photo down)

Down a detail of the burner can be seen.

In order to give more power one added a counterbalance him so that

vávula works more appropriately.

When it works, this motor produces the typical noise of the locomotives.
