Corliss Centennial Steam Engine

by Joseph Boquiren in Models

The Corliss Centennial Steam Engine the largest engine that the Corliss Steam Engine Company ever built. It was installed in the Machinery Hall of the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1876. The engine had a 44 inch bore, 10 foot stroke, was more than 45 feet tall, had a fifty-six ton, thirty foot diameter, twenty-four inch face flywheel, and produced 1,400 horsepower at 36 RPM. It alone powered over 13 acres of machinery in the Hall.

This exquisite steam engine could be the centerpiece of your animated steampunk universe, a great 3D printed paperweight, or the subject of your next Industrial Revolution documentary! This Blender Model was created using period lithographs, photos, and schematic drawings. It can be used to explain how the Corliss rotary valves work and how this innovation was so important in making steam engines much more thermally efficient.
