TODAY’S PATENT – TWO STROKE STEAM-TO-VACUUM ENGINE
The Two Stroke Steam-To-Vacuum Engine was invented by Lloyd E. Bishop (Oakland, CA) on the 4th of October, 2005, bearing patent number US6951107B1.
A steam-to-vacuum engine according to the invention comprises a first cylinder and a second cylinder. The first cylinder has a first piston defining a first steam chamber in the cylinder. The first piston is reciprocally moveable in the first cylinder delimiting the boundary of the first steam chamber. A first piston rod is attached to the first piston. The second cylinder has a second piston and a second steam chamber. The second piston is likewise reciprocally moveable in the second cylinder delimiting the boundary of the second steam chamber. A second piston rod is attached to the second piston. The cylinders are in fixed spaced relation and the piston rods are linearly connected together by a coupler such that the first and second pistons move simultaneously in fixed reciprocating relation.
