Motor units

A motor unit takes a supply of steam at high pressure and temperature and gives out a supply of steam at lower pressure and temperature, using as much of the difference in steam energy as possible to do mechanical work. Motor units are typically a type of piston or steam turbine.

A motor unit is often called 'steam engine' in its own right. They will also operate on compressed air or other gas.
