Steam powered the world and it can power your next project too.


In 1781 James Watt patented a steam engine that produced continuous rotary motion. Watt's ten-horsepower engines enabled a wide range of manufacturing machinery to be powered. The engines could be sited anywhere that water, coal or wood could be obtained. By 1883, engines that could provide 10,000hp had become possible.


The stationary steam engine was a key component of the Industrial Revolution, allowing factories to locate engines where water power was unavailable. The atmospheric engines of Newcomen and Watt were large compared to the amount of power they produced, but high pressure steam engines were small and light enough to be applied to vehicles such as traction engines and railway locomotives.


Reciprocating piston type steam engines remained the dominant source of power until the early 20th century when advances in the design of electric motors and internal combustion engines gradually resulted in the replacement of piston steam engines in commercial usage, and the ascendancy of steam turbines in power generation.
