Inresol V2-6 CX


The Inresol V2-6 Stirling engine is clarified as a ‘ hot air engine’ and creates on demand heat and power by inserting the heater section of the engine into a heat source. The needed 1000 degrees celcius of controlled heat expands the nitrogen working gas forcing the displacer piston to move. The engine is water cooled resulting in the top section (the cold section at approx. 80 deg.C) to contract the working gas allowing the power piston to move. The expansion and contraction happens approximately 20 times per second creating power from our permanent magnet generator.


The size of the market that this engine can be adapted to is ever growing due to its versatility and short list of requirements. The engine can be built in a series/modular arrangement inside a shipping container to produce large amounts of heat and power. The engines all include the patented ‘multifuel combustion chambers’ therefore increasing the availability of power in extreme environments. The designs for the Inresol Power containers can be purchased under a license agreement.


The V2-6X concludes to be the lightweight solution to a combined heat and power need. With its versatility in fuels and ease of installation into container solutions, its adaptability and performance can provide power and heat on demand of up to 10kW peak ( through battery – inverter) of electrical output and up to 15kW of on demand heating from the circulated hot water per engine installed.
