What is OPOC engine?
The OPOC engine is a two-stroke reciprocating internal combustion engine in which each cylinder has a piston at both ends, and no cylinder head or mechanical valvetrain. The opposed cylinder design has two cylinders, one on each side of the crankshaft, each with two pistons, for mechanical balance.
How does the OPOC engine work?
The opoc engine operates on the 2-cycle principle, generating one power stroke per crank revolution per cylinder. Each module consists of two opposing cylinders per module, with a crankshaft between them; each cylinder has two pistons moving in opposite directions. Cutaway diagram of the opoc engine.
What happened Achates Power?
Achates Power is not a manufacturing company; that would be left to engine makers like Cummins, Caterpillar, and Navistar.
What happened to eco motors?
As of February 2017 the EcoMotors web site was defunct. It’s intellectual property was put up for sale with closing date in Sept. 2017.
Why do cars not use 2 stroke engines?
Disadvantages of the Two-stroke There are four main reasons: Two-stroke engines don’t last nearly as long as four-stroke engines. The lack of a dedicated lubrication system means that the parts of a two-stroke engine wear a lot faster. Two-stroke oil is expensive, and you need about 4 ounces of it per gallon of gas.
What uses opposed-piston engine?
An opposed-piston engine is a piston engine in which each cylinder has a piston at both ends, and no cylinder head. Petrol and diesel opposed-piston engines have been used mostly in large-scale applications such as ships, military tanks, and factories.
Is diesel a 2 stroke?
Diesel combustion. The diesel engine is an intermittent-combustion piston-cylinder device. It operates on either a two-stroke or four-stroke cycle (see figure); however, unlike the spark-ignition gasoline engine, the diesel engine induces only air into the combustion chamber on its intake stroke.
Is a 2 stroke supposed to smoke?
Since the engine is burning pre-mix oil we have to be careful here, because blueish-white smoke is a normal occurrence of two-stroke engine operation. However, excessive smoke after warm up can be an indicator of a couple problems.
Why dont we have opposed piston engines?
The opposed-piston engine has been around for over 100 years and is more efficient in almost every way. The engine has no traditional valves, cams, or camshafts, and no head, so it’s simpler and cheaper to manufacture, assemble and operate.
