F3Dew

3D Dew condenser

Similar projects worth following
Problem : People in remote areas have no access to clean water

We want to build a 3D dew condenser to save ground surface compared to standard dew condenser that are using large nets and take a lot a space. Reducing the amount of space used by one device would allow to increase drastically the production/surface ratio thus to produce more water.

1°) Objectives

  • Collect dew water that can be drunk without post treatment
  • Improve already existing designs by reducing the amount of ground surface needed (check file pictures)
  • Do it cheaper

2°) Researches we've done

    During this week we made the prototype with the cones. After boring holes in the cones and cutting like piece of wood, we attached them together to make a strong structure.

    We finished the hackaday and the twitter, we are now ready for the oral. We just need to run tests and we can face a jury

    During this week, we glue some pieces of wood between the pillars, all around the main structure and graph plastic bags in it, to make the water fall. It was long because the glue toke 10min making effect, and we made 6 levels of bags and strengthening.

    We didn't receive the cones, so we couldn't prepare the clean prototype. The prototype in recyclable materials is now ready, so everyone who is poor can build one.

    We begin the creation of the dew condenser in plastic and wood. We are laser cutting pieces of wood to make 4 pillars. We encountered some problems during the cutting :

    The first piece of wood was to large (6mm) to be cut, so we toke two pieces of 3mm each and glue them together to make the structure enough strong to resist the severe weather. We made straight shank assemblies to maintain the structure together (see pictures).

    The design of the dew condenser is finished!!! We think about the material that we’ll use. We order a hydrophobic spray to transform our surface.

FYI:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pot-in-pot_refrigerator

Low tech system that is around for ages.

>First we focused on a cooling system that would make our surface temperature to drop in order to condensate water

Might want to read what you wrote.  I point out low tech cooling system.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Don't bring up a few paragraphs of fluff of what you are not going to do when your main object is a single sentence.

not read a novel here.  Don't blame the reader when you are a bad writer.

  Are you sure? yes | no
