Different Types of Engines


An engine is the central part of a moving system or body. In information technology, we have search engines which enable Internet users to search or look for contents in the internet at Golen Performance. Without a search engine, it is impossible to access Web pages or information from the Web site. Some of the commonly used search engines are Mozilla, Opera, Internet Explorer, Netscape, Safari and many more. In order access information faster, it is important to update the search engines that are installed in your computer or mobile phones. Windows Operating system has Internet Explorer as the default search engine.

In human beings the brain is the engine, since it controls the function of different parts of the body. Signals from the brain are relayed to the limbs i.e, hand to make one grasp an object, bath and many more.

Motorcycles, vehicles, aeroplane and other moving machines have engines. The engine sizes do vary depending on the functional speed. Engines need fuels to make them operate. Most motorcycles gasoil, vehicle engines will be propelled using petrol or diesel. Most small vehicles use petrol whereas big engines like for some pickup, lorry and buses do use diesel. Aeroplane engines do use jet fuel.

When fuel burns in the engine, it produces energy which makes the motors to move thus making the machine to move or perform some tasks. Burning of petrol produces less smoke as opposes to the burning of petrol thus engines using petrol are more cleaner than those using diesel. However engines using petrol tend to be more expensive since they rarely get spoilt thus reducing the maintenance cost.

Most heavy machines use diesel since they require high amount of fuel and diesel is relatively cheaper. Engines using diesel requires different oils from those using petrol. For a car the engine has places for engine oil, this oil reduces friction of the movable parts of the engine.

The movable parts are also greased to prevent them from friction and rust, thus reducing wear and tear.

Advancement in technology has produced vehicle engines power using Solar energy. The United States of America gas become the first country to develop a vehicle whose engine is powered by solar. There are some domestic appliances with engines which are powered by electricity. Europe, America, Asia and some countries in Africa, have train engines which are powered by electricity. Generally engines powered by electricity tend to be faster than those powered by petrol and diesel respectively. Engines are made up of metals with very high melting points like Aluminium, Lead and Iron due to the  high temperatures produced during combustion. A fan should be installed next to the engine to facilitate cooling. Water also flows through the engine to enhance the cooling process, all these will prevent the melting of metals used in making the engine.
