The Mini Steam Engine, inspired by the aeolipile, also known as Hero's engine, is a radial steam turbine. Its design, attributed to Hero of Alexandria between 10 and 70 AD, operates by heating water within a spherical container to produce steam. As the steam exits through nozzles directed at right angles to the radial direction, Newton's third law causes the steam to produce a torque, resulting in rotation.


Unique Styling: This Mini Aeolipile steam engine features a small size and scale-like design, allowing for radial rotation. Its compact and novel appearance is sure to captivate attention.

Extremely Fine Craftsmanship: Crafted entirely from copper with delicate execution, every part resembles a treasure, showcasing meticulous craftsmanship.

Easy Operation: Utilizes liquid alcohol as fuel. Simply add water to the boiler, ignite the alcohol lamp, and watch it work for 5-10 minutes.

Priority Gift Option: Packaged elegantly, this steam engine makes a splendid gift for various applications, including kids' science projects, physical/mechanical learning, teacher demonstrations, and birthday gifts.


1, After using it, please let the engine natural cool. Don't touch the alcohol burner, burned tube or the metal to avoid scald.
2, The steam engine model is suit for people over 14 years old. Operate under adults' supervision.
