Generating High Temperature by Compressing Air in a Cylinder
Product Code: 6031
Availability: In Stock



The FirePiston glowingly demonstrates the rise in temperature when a fixed mass of gas is compressed. A piece of tinder (a bit of toilet tissue will do) inside a hollow transparent cylinder ignites when the contained air is compressed by a hand operated piston. This is the same process that ignites the fuel inside diesel engines - properly called compression-ignition engines. Includes various tinders with instructions on how to use them for good effects.
