Abstract:

A Philips Model 14D external combustion engine, equipped as a portable generator set, was operated as continuously as practicable at its rated output, 124.5 watts, or more, in order to indicate its reliability and probable maintenance requirements. The performance of the unit was generally satisfactory except for relatively numerous minor difficulties such as air leaks, failures of the compressor suction valve assembly and irregular fuel flow. At the time the test was discontinued, after 1015 hours operation, the engine still operated satisfactorily and there was no difficulty in maintaining rated power output. A post-trial disassembly inspection of the engine showed it to be in a generally satisfactory condition. It was recommended that the engine be considered suitable for service applications wherein its special features are of importance, provided certain improvements were made. Author
