Spirax Sarco has provided specialist support and equipment to a team of British engineers that has successfully broken two land-speed records for a steam powered car.

As well as sponsoring the record attempt, Spirax Sarco offered technical guidance to the project engineers on the specification of the steam system in the car, to ensure it could meet the performance objectives.

During the car development, the team consulted Spirax Sarco who advised that the first boiler design had insufficient output due to a lack of heat transfer area.

The design was modified and subsequently achieved the desired output.

Spirax Sarco also supplied control valves and positioners for test rigs, and to control the steam flow in the car.

Murdo MacDonald, Major Projects Manager at Spirax Sarco UK, said the components helped give the car better control and throttling capabilities.
