Hi Jones, although I am on Broad Band, sadly it does not work for me...after some few minutes it comes up as a large flickering Green circle... ''STARGATE'' perhaps...Australia here I come... ;D All the best for now, John.
G'day all. I only get the sound, and indication of a CODEC Error. In spite of this I get the picture in my mind. My coffee machine boast that the steam pressure is 15bar. I note that the steam is not dry when it exits the nozzle so you are right regarding a superheater. The whole concept has promise because flash steam generators don't come under the boiler codes. Visualise a diesel outline model driven by a 2 cylinder steam engine powered by a flash boiler.
G'day Jones, Abby et al. Firstly, I am obviously not the only one who can't see the video.
Secondly, regarding flash steam. I bought the book "Experimental Flash Steam" (MAP) and was disappointed with it. The material was anecdotal and historical without any analysis. IMHO a useful book needs some buildable examples and/or a description of the principles involved. One thing I would appreciate is the feed pump rate vs steam demand-pressure. I know that those with more thermodynamics knowledge than I can probably work this out; but I didn't do Thermodynamics I with my engineering course.
My experience with the expresso coffee machine (I make a mean Cappuccino) shows that some form of steam separator is essential; I wonder it automatic drain cocks would work at releasing the water component?
