nocking sound

Post  roel rasker on Sat 28 Jan 2012, 8:15 pm

hi,

when i drive my steam engine and i close the water valve to fill up the boiler the engine makes a nocking sound.
i think it is normal. because the water has to flow into the pressure in the boiler.
Am i right or is there another cause.

who has any experience with it ?

best regards

roel

Sounds like water hammer. Steve trail had it on his 4". Hopefully he will be able to give you some info on how to stop it.
