interactivos 16 dia 13

Penúltimo dia!!! Hoje foi dia de apresentação dos projetos desenvolvidos durante o interactivos 16. As apresentações foram entre os próprios participantes, amanhã é dia da apresentação para a comunidade da Serrinha do Alambari.

interactivos 16 día 10

day 10. yesterday we fond that we need to raise a couple of meters the column.. we need 11m from the condenser to the ground so today we’ll be all day in this.

we reduced the condenser, we went from 6 to 4 pipes the aluminum pipes and we got 1m extra :)

we also started measuring the composter temperature with a regular house thermometer. tomorrow sara will give us a hand on installing one sht21 on the composter and a sht15 near the condenser .

we finish the day making connections and drawing diagrams :)

interactivos 16 día 8

Colocamos la primera capa de residuos en la compostera y luego una capa de hojas secas.

Revisando las llave que sale del bambú nos damos cuenta que está entrando aire, al parecer por la unión entre la parte roscada de la llave y el accesorio, se colocará más teflón y silicona para estas uniones.

Colocamos la madera de base donde va ir la compostera y los bambús con mangueras; la nivelamos colocando piedras y greda. Cuando esta base se aseguró levantamos el bambú con la manguera a los 10 mts, y acomodamos  las  varas en la base con la compostera.

Colocamos una  manguera en desnivel asegurándonos que este a más de 10 metros y llenamos la columna de agua para hacer vacío, al final de la manguera  colocamos un bambú con agua para evitar que entre aire.

interactivos 16 día 5

Toda la mañana revisamos nuevamente el funcionamiento de LED, logramos simplificar un poco y escribir paso a paso el procedimiento para hacer funcionar el sistema, por medio de una tabla que indica las llaves abiertas y cerradas en cada paso

A la tarde documentamos el trabajo que hemos hecho hasta ahora y retomamos el trabajo de hacer la compostera.

interactivos 16 dia 4

 

we started the day with a walk. is shining today and we’ll go with wha-young and her group to find the spring of the river.

we collected samples and measure the river flow.

around 11h we came back to continue working on our project. there are some parts that are not completed designed. here is angelica thinking about the container of liquids that we’ll use inside of the composter.

before lunch we received the visit of professor Caren and her chemistry students. we talked about the projects and they will collaborate with us on making liquids analysis on the input and output of the system. after lunch we made a group meeting about the daily live in the house :p

on the afternoon we started building the inside structure of the composter. we are gonna use the heat generated inside to bring the liquids that we need to boil to a higher temperature.

this is our first approach.. looks good but we still didn’t find a easy way to hold all the bambu pieces together.. any idea?

interactivos 16 dia 3

Cortamos 5 pedaços de mangueiras para fazer o condensador. As mangueiras serão encaixadas nos tubos de alumínio (6 tubos) que unidos formam o condensador.condensador

Fizemos a medição e marcação de 10 metros no bambu, os 10 metros correspondem ao tamanho da mangueira requerido para o funcionamento do sistema LED. O bambu irá comportar a mangueira.10m

O bambu foi cortado lateralmente, retirando uma tampa para o encaixe da mangueira no seu interior. A finalidade do bambu é manter a temperatura dentro da mangueira.corte1corte3

Depois de cortada a lateral do bambu, a mangueira foi instalada no seu interior.

A cinta, que será presa em uma palmeira, servirá de apoio para a roldana que utilizaremos para auxiliar no içamento do bambu. Ela foi erguida, graças ao Júnior, morador local da Serrinha do Alambari. A cinta foi colocada a cerca de 12 m de altura.subida1subida-2

interactivos 16 día 2

Para conservar mejor el calor en la manguera por donde asciende el líquido, hemos pensado en colocarla dentro del bambú.

img_5096 img_5133

Tomamos las medidas de los bambús cortados ayer, tienen 7,5 mt.  Levantamos uno  justo al lado de una  palmera para saber si se conseguiría la altura en esa palmera.

Con cintas se ató a la palmera una cuerda con una polea, debemos subirla a 10 mts de altura para usarla en el izaje del bambú con la manguera y el condensador.

 

Cada uno tomo unas varas de madera para empezar a subir la cinta en la palmera, logramos subirla aproximadamente 4 mts, luego intentamos seguir elevándola con los bambús pero resultaron muy pesados para manipularlos. Cortamos el bambú más delgado por la mitad para que fuera amas fácil de manipular pero se volvieron muy flexibles y no sirvieron. También intentamos tirar un mosquetón por encima para enganchar y halar la cinta atada a la palmera pero se no se logró llegar a esa altura.

Pesamos también en ganar la atura en forma diagonal pero no sería óptimos distancias muy largas. Finalmente Sara contactara alguien que sabe escalar palmeras y pueda subir la cinta a los 10mt. Así finalizo la mañana.

En la tarde pensamos en la estructura del condensador, teniendo en cuenta colocar los tubos metálicos en diagonal para que el agua baje.

Al final de la tarde fuimos a buscar otras dos varas de bambú, y conseguimos cortar las varas de 10 mts.

interactivos 16 day 1

the usual thing for a first day: personal and work presentations.

there are great projects here! check the interactivos website to learn more about them. we had lunch together and after that we went to see our materials and where we are installing the device. after a visual análisis of the geography we have determined that we’ll use a palm tree to elevate our condenser, install the composter on the house level and use the slope that goes to the river to extend the second vacuum column that has at the end the clean water output. elevate a water column for 10m on the side of a palm tree doesn’t seems a easy task so we went to collect bambú to build a 10m tripod or some other tool to raise the condenser.

tomorrow more ;)

we where selected to interactivos 16!!!

we did it!! we were selected!!! we have team up with CIMNE nature on this one and made a great proposal :)

you know, this year subject of research is water and water is one of those issues on urban farming.. getting water from the grid is expensive to everyone, the ones that pay, the ones that supply it and to all of us as a planet. at the same time in urban environment we trash a lot of water, in all colors: black, brown, grey and yellow. just by the colors you can figure their content :p but the content that gives color is just a small part of it. in all around 99% is water. on the other and we need nutrients and we are all the time trowing them out of the sink. so on this project we will focus on cleaning water and reduce nutrients to a more concentrated solution that we can apply later on the farm.

this is not nothing new of course, the plants use exactly the same technic  to pump nutrients over their body.

we’ll keep you updated on the building process;)

you may have notice that we are huge fans of the interactivos program from medialabmadrid ehhehehe. I’ve enjoyed a lot the past one’s and today the calls are open again. this is not a normal interactivos, this one is in rio de janeiro:) run by the amazing nuvem team, surrounded by nature and having water and autonomy has a line of work, I think we are gonna propose something :p
