Our KS90 engine has always been one of our most popular engines. It's low operating temperature
and wonderful engineering has been marvelled for years. The KS160 engine takes all the qualities of
the KS90 range and enlarges the size. It is affectionately known as the diner plate engine
(the size is roughly the same as a diner plate). Its performance is as good, if not a slightly better than
the KS90 engine, it can run off lower temperature differences but operates are low RPMs.
Just like our other low temperature differential engines it can run from the heat of your hand,
run on a cup of coffee/tea, ice cubes or from many other heat sources.
"The KS160 is a scaled up version of our popular KS90 engines.
It is as good in every way and impressively large."
