    Engineering at its best.

    We all enjoy working on our engines so I wanted to share this cut away piece that illustrates some incredible engineering.

    I'm down at our manufacturing plant in Charlotte NC. looking at some new Turbine products from Carrier Corp. & we had an opportunity to tour the plant today.

    Steve (beerdart) you'd appreciate this.

    Here is a cut away of our 23XRV screw compressor. Sits about 6' long & 3' wide, used for commercial A/C.

    The main shaft is connected to a male rotor along with 2 female rotors (tri-rotor), which is supported by roller bearings - as it spins it compresses the refrigerant.

    Amazing stuff.

    Exactly what I was thinking of.

    Pretty interesting, I am studying this stuff in thermodynamics this semester.
