Having insufficient experience with turbines, a final VTE-propelled design with oil-firing was presented in 1907. To compare it with foreign technology, Krupp, Schichau and Yarrow were asked for competitive designs, all of which turned out to be inferior. initially STT was ordered to build 8 such boats, but this was reduced to 6, because Danubius had to participate. When the older torpedo-boats lost their names in 1910 in favour of arable numbers, these units became in consequence Tb 1-Tb 6. The boats were surprisingly seaworthy up to sea state 5-6, and during the war they saw active service on escort, minesweeping and anti-submarine dunes. (10/10)

    Hi,

    One of my friend asked me to design a Water control unit for him.
    It has to be able to:
    - identify the water levein the boiler through the sight glass
    - able to reduce the effect of the air bubbles and the water bouncing
    - control a servo wich is able to open or close the mechanical water pump
    - control an electric water pump as an option
    - able to measure the feeder tank water level
    - should have a signaling option, like an Alert Led

    You can watch the video here:

    Hi,

    I don't know guys there are smoke/steam generators which are working with pure water not necessary any special oil for them. The other thing is the heat element inside some units.
    I don't like the idea if something heated up in my boat, not mentioned if it is an oilbased something....

    Yes you can buy things from the ebay or from the interne, chinese circuits etc, but you have to create a circuit (right components, because a 20V range capacitor won't be good when the peak-to peak values are higher then 80V, the same with the fet, plus you have to create the right supply voltage which has to be constant, because the NE555 circuit frequency is very sensible for the voltage changes) for it, you have to find the right frequency, etc...

    There are many thing what you have to think of.

    This is the reason why I offered the Denes Design Smoke Generator, because it is a connect and play robust unit. You got it, connect it, power it up, fill it up and ready to go, not mentioned it is working with pure water and creating cold smoke/steam/mist.... there is no heating element....

    The design of a product like this requires a lot of pre-investigation, and design.
    If somebody would like to play with it and spend many time just do it, this can be part of the hobby too, but if you need a good quality good running robust product just buy one.

    Please read the article below:

    Hi,

    I have.
    First you have to make a decision what do you want:
    - a simple just have some smoke
    - a throttle arm active nice robust like Denes Design has? (If you would like to build it on your own, that can be difficult, but you still can buy one this is the easy way๐Ÿ˜Š)

    Hi Ron,

    I guess it is possible, you just have to create a proper plumbing for the smoke ๐Ÿ˜Š
    I just saw my system in tug boats, but it is time to try them in other vessels๐Ÿ˜‰

    There is a pretty good little Steam Generator unit which is able to follow the throttle arm/ speed it is changing the steam amount and the fan speed too not just switching On and OFF.
