CERAMIC BURNER

Martin Baylis Engineering is now offering a Ceramic Burner, it is designed to fit within “standard” 28mm copper tubing it also comes complete with two “chokes” which enables the burner to be “tuned” to suit various boiler types. The burner can be supplied with or without the jet and holder depending on the customers needs.

FEED WATER RESERVIOR

Martin Baylis Engineering is now offering a Feed Water Reservoir, it is of Aluminium construction, has a brass knurled filler cap, vent tower and glands for outlet and return pipe work. Due to its construction it is light weight, 300 grams or 10.6 ounces (dry), has a capacity of 450 ml or 0.8 pints. The reservoir is 89 mm or 3.5 inches in diameter and 172 mm or 6.75 inches in length, it is finished in black stove enamel.

HORIZONTAL BOILER

The Martin Baylis Engineering is now offering a horizontal boiler to complement there range of steam engines to be shortly followed by a Kingdon style vertical boiler. The boilers are designed to be used in conjunction with the Martin Baylis Engineering range of engines but could equally be used with an alternative engine of suitable capacity.

KINGDON BOILER

Martin Baylis Engineering are pleased to introduce a new vertical boiler based on the Simpson Strickland Kingdon Boiler. As many features as possible have been retained from the original. These include a dummy fire door, bottle siphon pressure gauge, copper dome at the base of the funnel, brass feature to the top of the funnel, wood cladding and brass boiler bands.

The boiler is complete with super heater (steam drier), steam valve, pressure gauge and siphon, safety relief valve, water gauge, burner and combined feed water by-pass and check valve if required.

A novel feature if that the exhaust passes through the boiler casing and into the top of the vertical fire tube thus avoiding the need for unsightly pipe work on top of the boiler.

RECHARGEABLE GAS TANKS

Martin Baylis Engineering is now offering a rechargeable gas tank designed to be used with a Butane/Propane mix. The tank comes complete with gas valve, recharging valve and recharging adapter to suit commercially available gas canisters.

STATIC STEAM UNIT

Martin Baylis Engineering are now offering a static steam plant, the plant consists of a Kingdon style vertical boiler, three cylinder steam engine, engine driven feed pump, gas tank, oil separator tank and feed water reservoir. The unit is mounted on an anodised aluminium plate with rubber feet. For those who do not wish to build a model boat but still wish to enjoy the pleasures of steam this may well be an option.

THREE CYLINDER STEAM ENGINE

The Martin Baylis double acting slide valve three cylinder steam engine has been designed to resemble as much as is practical at this scale the appearance of a Triple expansion Marine Steam Engine. Once again every effort has been made to use of give the appearance of materials that would have been available during the age of steam.

Items such as connecting rods and eccentric rods are fully machined and profiled giving the appearance of the original items. In the case of the eccentric rods, stainless steel and brass have been used to simulate the bronze eccentric strap and steel eccentric rod of full sized practice. Effort has also been made to incorporate into the engine items that are so often seen as separate entities. The displacement lubricator sits between the cylinders and the throttle assembly is hidden within the steam chest, giving a neat and uncluttered appearance to the engine. Steam-ways are an integral part of the cylinder block so there is no external pipe work other than that to deliver the steam and remove the exhaust.

The simulated wooden cladding complete with brass straps adds to the look of authenticity, as do the cylinder head fixings which are especially made to replicate dome head bolts. Connecting rods display bolt heads at the big ends.

Reversing and throttle leavers have been designed to look in keeping with the controls of the real engine. Crank shaft webs are profiled to give the appearance of counterbalanced webs. This attention to detail in addition to the overall construction and aesthetic of the engine is designed to be pleasing to the eye.

TWIN CYLINDER STEAM ENGINE

The Martin Baylis double acting slide valve twin engine has been designed to replicate as much as is practical at this scale the appearance of a compound engine. Great attention has been paid to represent the materials that would have been in use at the time; predominantly cast iron, brass, bronze and steel.
