Remove the valve chest cover from the cylinder and replace a couple of screws to hold the PLEASE NOTE - this model and explanation contain a glaring error. A positive displacement pump has a phenomenon known as “slip”, which is the recirculation of the pumped fluid from the discharge side of the pump back to the suction side of the pump. Repeat for the other side. A short time spent running the engine and making adjustments of just half a turn of the valve spindle at a time should soon show its optimum positions. Bid now on Invaluable: DOLL ET CIE TOY STEAM PLANT & WORKSHOP 1920s Copper boiler mounted on tinplate brick effect oven with chimney, boiler with pressure gauge, water level glass, safety valves and whistle, piping to horizontal twin cylinder engine with slip eccentric ... from Bonhams on November 4, 0120 10:00 AM PST. Here we have a really cool little thing! Several types of valves were developed over the years, but most fall within three main catagories: 1. - Benjamin Maggi. plays no part in the setting. Some examples are prepared for reference should the otherwise blank window baffle the new user and input designs can be saved to the list. Now rotate the wheels in the reverse direction and check where the outside cranks are This describes the procedure for adjusting the slide valves on the internal slip-eccentric valve gear as fitted to early Roundhouse Lady Anne and Dylan locomotives and also, in a slightly shorter form, to the L & B locomotive. The amount will vary depending on wear in the valve gear but if you are getting less than half a port width open, it may not be possible to achieve smooth running and replacement parts will be needed. Charlie's valve gear program has a simulation for slip eccentric. A strange Hybrid Valve Gear applied to an 0-6-0 Shunting Tank Locomotive by John Aspinall of The Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway in 1897. 166: by Mike Walsh » Wed Feb 17, 2010 9:58 am, Powered by phpBB® Forum Software © phpBB Limited. DIRECTIONS FOR VALVE SETTING Directions for Setting the Woolf Reverse — In setting this valve gear, just as in setting any of the others, the first thing to do is to take up all lost motion in the cross head, connecting rod and main bearings, as well as in the eccentric, eccentric strap and all the valve connections. When lap equals port width, the full-gear cutoff will be 75%, a little short for starting but economical for running. 2018. Animation & Cartoons Arts & Music Computers & Technology Cultural & Academic Films Ephemeral Films Movies News & Public Affairs. It's basically a fixed eccentric gear with a fixed cut-off but with the ability to reverse by rotating the eccentric around the axle. The stop collar has a slot machined (either radially as show or accross one face on original version) which allows the eccentric to 'slip' freely on the axle for about half a turn of the wheels. Compared to the existing Stephenson valve gear, Walschaert's gear had the advantage that it only required one eccentric per val… Does not cover 'Basic Series' locomotives. ... Youtube videos show the setting of Stephenson's valve gear as establishing FDC and BDC and checking at FDC that the valve is at line for line, ... and Back gear eccentric at the bottom. The earlier version for fixed gauge models is similar but the stop collars are on the inside (back to back) and the eccentrics are to the outside, just behind the wheels. The valves on a steam engine control the flow of steam in and out of the cylinders. Click Here To Return To The Homepage. As the valve moves backwards and forwards, it should uncover both the inlet ports in turn baggo Guest. pushing the engine one way causes the eccentric to slip until the pin hits one end of the slot and make the engine run in one direction. For instance, if the front inlet port was opening more than the rear one, then the There are three steam ports under the valve though you will only ever see two of them, the The article discusses the geometry of slip eccentric valve gear to be used in building the Gauge One locomotive. Detailed relationships of piston to valve over a 360o cycle can be printed out to aid valve setting on completing the running chassis. If you switch the parts with pins & slots then the locatoing the slot would filp also. The engine features slip eccentric valve gear so the engine will run in either direction. Secretary of The National 2½" Gauge Association. Note that the valve nut has a flat machined on it, which must be to the bottom when sitting it down into the slide-valve. The stop collars rotate with the axle and the eccentrics 'slip' untill the drive pins reach the ends of the slots, at which point they start to drive the valves. Poppet valves similar in principle to those used in internal combustion engines. by Benjamin Maggi » Tue Feb 16, 2010 7:18 am, Post To get the loco moving the eccentic rod is lifted off the valve rod and its associated rocker. All adjustment to achieve this is done by moving the stop collar a little at a time and re-checking. The valve timing is controlled by the stop collar on the drive axle. In this way, the valve timing can altered simply by moving the loco in the desired direction with the steam regulator closed. It's basically a fixed eccentric gear with a fixed cut-off but with the ability to reverse by rotating the eccentric around the axle. i don't have a vid. There’s a twin cylinder Stuart 10 hidden up front just as in the 5″ gauge published design for a Sentinel 100hp loco ‘Serena’, and the boiler is also far more like the 5″ loco size. Since there is only one eccentric there is only one direction the engine can run in unless it is a slip eccentric and it does not look to be. My scratchbuilt live steam Gauge-1 engine will feature slip eccentric valve gear. When looking at right hand side of locomotive, forward rotation of wheels is clockwise. by Benjamin Maggi » Wed Feb 17, 2010 8:40 am, Post Repeat the operation until ; Radial gears. by Fred_V » Sun Feb 14, 2010 6:19 pm, Post Piston valves which superseded slide valves in the 20th century; 3. Eccentric plug rotary control valves control erosive, coking, and other hard-to-handle fluids, providing either throttling or on/off operation. You can now look down into the valve chest and see exactly what She doesn't already, with your hobby? cylinders. THE BAKER VALVE GEAR shown with the rods separated to illustrate the action. ... with a nice animation. Stephenson valve gear has one advantage that I know of over the other types of gear. idea is to get both ports opening when the outside cranks are at the same position after equal opening is achieved Note that when they are opening equally, the ports are not Right hand side is mirror image of this. As you rotate the wheels, the valve moves backwards and forwards over the steam ports. When all is correct, lock up the stop collar grub screw and replace the valve chest cover etc. Although the original version of this valve gear, as fitted to the non gauge-adjustable Dylan and Lady Anne models, had a different layout of eccentric and stop collar, the setting proceedure is the same for both. These are the ports that allow steam to travel too and from the ends of the A 3 1/2″ gauge vertical boilered 0-4-0 ‘Sentinel-esque’ twin cylinder steam loco. Set the loco off on a reasonably level length of track at a slow speed. the same side and, whilst looking down into the valve chest, rotate the stop collar on the Rotate the wheels in the same direction whilst watching the conversely, is allowed to exhaust up the chimney when its done its work. It can also serve as a reversing gear.It is sometimes referred to as the "motion". "One cannot learn to swim without getting his feet wet." The rear inlet port should just start opening as the crank pin on the same outside crank is a little after Charlie's valve gear program has a simulation for slip eccentric. The initial stage of the analysis which determines the details of the 'equivalent eccentric' is the same as for Walschaerts gear. Think I'll stick to slip eccentric for the next loco ;D John. the valve movement. Animated Steam Valve Gears By fisker76 From a page on SteamLocomotive.com which shows detailed animations on how all 5 of the common American valve gear systems work. Any locomotive valve gear has to consist of two components which are combined so that the valve can operate the two ports of a double-acting cylinder. Baker valve gear - fairly common in the United States, it had no sliding parts. and by the same amount. A cardboard model, eh? pivot screw, lift the rocker arm out of the valve spindle end socket, then screw the valve If, for instance, it keeps stalling with one particular crank pin just after rear dead center, then this would indicate that the slide valve is opening a little late. The valve gear of a steam engine is the mechanism that operates the inlet and exhaust valves to admit steam into the cylinder and allow exhaust steam to escape, respectively, at the correct points in the cycle. Loose eccentric is the same as slip eccentric and works the same way. Once you are happy with the visual settings, the valve chests can be closed ready for a steam test. You will find it easier if you concentrate on setting one side at a time. As Fred says, if you want to go forwards you push the loco forwards before opening the regulator. Repeat this several times and it will soon show up if there is a 'dead spot' at any particular point of the valve cycle. 6 - Rocker arm pivot screw. This gear shows greater lead at full gear than at mid gear, similar to Stephenson using crossed eccentric rods. Make a card baord model and it will be come aparent real quick how it works. Refering to the diagram above, rotate the driving wheels in the forward direction until the crank pin on the drive axle outside crank on one side is a little after front dead centre. The eccentric rod has a hook, called a Gab, which is dropped down onto the valve actuating rod or rocker. Note that when looking at the left hand side of the locomotive (as in diagram), forward rotation of wheels is anti-clockwise. Stephenson gear. The third port, the exhaust is always hidden under the centre of the valve and I am trying to wrap my head around how it works, though as LBSC said in his books if the builder constructs it to plans, eventually he will see how it functions... and if not, who cares? Check the position of the slide-valve on the spindle by rotating the wheels and watching spindle should be rotated anticlockwise to move the valve forward along its length. If you want to go in reverse you push the loco backwards before opening the regulator. by Benjamin Maggi » Sun Feb 14, 2010 5:36 pm, Post when the ports are just cracking open. Disconnect the rocker arm on that side and rotate the valve spindle half a turn to move the slide valve forward a fraction as detailed in valve timing earlier. 4 - Spacer. 5 - Rocker arm. 2 - Eccentric rod. You probably have the formula for that, if not I can email it direct. A problem with this arrangement (when applied to locomotives) is that one of the components of the motion is affected by the rise and fall of the locomotive on its springs. The actual distance (degrees after dead center) will vary depending on the amount of wear in the valve gear. The flanged valves feature streamlined flow passages and rugged, metal trim components for dependable service in slurry applications. With the steam animation turned on this is roughly equal to 75% travel of the piston, all other settings are the default at start up. Featured ... Full text of "Valves and valve gear mechanisms" In 1848, Heusinger independently invented a very similar valve gear in Prussia, and Walschaert gear is occasionally known as Heusinger gear.Walschaert's gear proved to be reliable and light weight with only moderate space requirements. STEAM ENGINE VALVE GEAR ON THE COMPUTER Windows Version by Charles Dockstader HCR 69 Box 3111 California Valley CA 93453 805 475 2519. 1 - Stop collar. If it stalls, note the position of the drive crank pins and if either is at front or rear dead center. Service Sheet 04 Slip-eccentric Valve Gear Valve timing adjustment on early Roundhouse locomotives. Eccentric and sheave (Heat Engines, 1913).png 410 × 581; 15 KB Eccentric animation.gif 400 × 300; 103 KB Eccentric bottom bracket shell.jpg 2,592 × 1,944; 2.21 MB This describes the procedure for adjusting the slide valves on the internal slip-eccentric valve gear as fitted to early Roundhouse Lady Anne and Dylan locomotives and also, in a slightly shorter form, to the L & B locomotive. ... Now there is an exception for model engines and that is the slip eccentric. Spirituality & Religion Sports Videos Television Videogame Videos Vlogs Youth Media. by JJG Koopmans » Mon Feb 15, 2010 7:43 am, Post Regards, John. The double eccentric butterfly valve is resilient enough to seal, and the disc only wipes the seat for a few degrees at seating. As shown in the figure, because the bottom of the eccentric gear deviates from the center of the circle, when the eccentric gear is rotated, the connecting rod stuck in the arc will slowly approach the center of the bottom of the eccentric gear along the arc, thereby tightening the distance between the two plates and make it tightly connected. 84: ... Slip and slip curves Variation of k . valve. Eccentric gear equivalent to a crank and connecting rod . inlet ports. by 10 Wheeler Rob » Tue Feb 16, 2010 10:50 am, Post A butterfly valve is used to shut off or modulate the flow of a fluid (isolation and regulation). Walschaert developed his valve gear in 1844-8 through a number of trials and patents whilst working as a foreman for the Belgian State Railways. Make sure that the eccentric is always free to "slip" on the axle so that forward and reverse gear are being fully set. 3 - Eccentric. If it does not, adjust its position by unscrewing the rocker arm Slide valves largely used in the 19th century; 2. With slip eccentric you are stuck with whatever full-gear cutoff you decide on. This should again be a little after dead centre. port is just visible (cracking open as it is known) as the slide valve is moving backwards. Squirt a little steam oil into the valve chest as you replace the top cover and gasket, to help lubricate and seal the valve. The “Rocket’s” gear worked on this principle. When the locomotive is capable of running on the track under its own steam, the timing can be fine-tuned for best performance. The animation is accessed from this window and all windows are printable. spindle in or out a little as required. opening fully. On the “Rocket” and its contemporaries, this was accomplished by leaving the eccentric loose on the axle, and driving it … valve chest in place. Reconnect the rocker arm and try the loco again in both directions to check that your adjustment has not simply removed that dead spot only to replace it one in a different position. Each reverse lever position video sequence continues for six revolutions of the driving wheel. Gently tighten the grub screw. Most small engines like this have either an unrealistically small diameter flywheel or they need mounting on a base with the flywheel overhanging it. It has a double acting cylinder and piston valve. AN EARLY VALVE GEAR, in which a loose eccentric on the axle is driven by a collar and driving pin. Left hand drive axle outside crank. Slip-eccentric valve gear is very simple as shown in the diagram below. This is like a gab hook or slip-eccentric engine, fundamentally. However, in this case it is less easy to relate the valvegear mechanism to the equivalent eccentric. spindle. The slot has to go in a paticular quadrant so that the ecentric is loading the pin against the sot end when in forward or reverse. pushing the engine the other way causes the ecc. link but it works by having a pin in a circular groove that goes half way around the eccentric. Replace the rocker arm and check the valve movement again. API 609 Centric butterfly valves (soft seated) are preferred to gate and ball valves for low-pressure and non-critical applications as they are cheaper, lighter and easier to install. This has the effect of moving the valve along the Publication date 1906 Topics Steam-engines Publisher London, E. Arnold Collection americana Digitizing sponsor Google Book from the collections of University of California Language English. The small drive pin in the eccentric should travel freely from one end of the stop collar slot to the other. by baggo » Sun Feb 14, 2010 7:22 pm, Post Understanding 9/11.
