How It Works – Opposed Piston Opposed Cylinder Engine!

An opposed-piston engine is a reciprocating internal combustion engine in which each cylinder has a piston at both ends, and no cylinder head.

How It Works – Opposed Piston Opposed Cylinder Engine!

Instead of one piston per cylinder, which requires four cycles per firing, opposed-pistons engines have two pistons per cylinder, both connected by levers with a single crankshaft. With two pistons per cylinder, working in opposite reciprocating action, there’s no need for cylinder heads, which means less heat is lost in the combustion process.

The advantage is the engine can produce equal performance for less displacement and less emissions from pressure inside the cylinder than a four-stroke engine.
