Junkers HK/SHK Engines

Junkers 2HK110 of April 1926

Historical Data:
The principles of the Haubenkolben Engines were already developed by the Prof. Junkers Versuchsanstalt Aachen in 1922/23. It took until 1925/26 to further develope this engine into a serial produced stationary oil engine for various applications. The HK-Series engines were scalable engines, which vary from the number of cylinders and the lift. These engines were built by the Junkers Motorenwerke Dessau in a large number for different types of applications, i.e. as a electrical power supply generator.

 The small HK65 was the most successfull engine of this series. During the early 30s the HK65 was used as a train engine, i.e. on the Diema B10/20.

After WWII this engine was still produced for ship engine applications for small river boats. Another ship engine was the SHK108 (see ship engines)
