steam pressure can be used for many different uses as well ie

hot water

generating electricity

condensing sea water to make fresh

propulsion of the vesssel.

espresso coffemaker

fog horn

cabin heating

etc way better than co2!,and safe to breath
Alex,

I was drawing out a sophisticated (make that sofistikated) diagram for Jack of my interpretation for a design utilizing his parameters...

I've set it aside, as this is clearly the most elegant solution...

BRILLIANT!

Andrew.. I love it when you think out of the box.... I would have totally missed the musical applications of the steam source...

Re: Compressed Co2 Pressurized Water

I actually love steam engines, and a Bane Marie is something every galley needs.

So lets see for a 15 hp steam engine that makes 517 pounds of steam per hour, you would need five S.F. per boiler HP, so only 75 S.F of boiler heat exchanger surface area. Throw in a feed water tank and pump and a bit O piping and your in business.

Though a 15 HP steam engine will use up about a 20# propane cylinder per hour of full speed operation. Which is one of the reasons, steam went out of fashion rather quickly after the internal combustion engine came about.

Hum... I could design a solar powered steam engine. Would it be practical. Not so much.

Boy I can just not stay on topic.

given that he wants to build a catamaran,he could probably get away with a 5 HP boiler,make the boiler able to handle multi fuel,ie drift wood,with a propane or diesel back up it all sounds quite feasible,and economical!

a truly ecocat

Re: Compressed Co2 Pressurized Water

Given he's now had a response which attacks his character / reputation rather than his idea, I could well understand the OP putting this thread on ignore.

Alternatively he could do what I have, and put that poster on ignore.

Incidentally, attacking the person rather than the idea is not a good fit for the culture of this forum, sport.

Try Sailing Anarchy; it's standard procedure over there. You'll fit in perfectly.
