Automated Drain/Gutter Cleaner Project
Automated Drain/Gutter Cleaner Project report
Abstract: In present condition many electrically operated power hacksaw machines of different companies with different specifications are available for the use in shop floor. These machines are so precise that they can cut metal bars with minimum time made up of different materials but they have one and major disadvantage that those are able to cut two piece of bar at a time. For industries to achieve the mass production, it is necessary to cut metal bars with high rate. So it is impossible to depend upon conventional single frame power hacksaw machines and need the improvement in technology and design of such machines. With the help of this two-way power hacksaw machine the two metal bars can be cut simultaneously to get high speed cutting rate and to achieve mass production for maximum profit in related companies. As this machine overcomes all the limitations and drawbacks of conventional hacksaw machines, it is also helpful for small scale industries due to its simple working and operating conditions along with its compatibility, efficiency and affordable price. This project is about cutting the wood, metal, pipe, angle, channel, flat plates, rods and such other things.Cleaning of drains/gutters has always been a problem. Labors cleaning gutters & drain seems unethical and also leads to a high risk of them catching infections or poisoning due to large amounts of waste/chemicals in them. Also throwing of bottles/plastics and other such objects into the gutters lead to narrowing and eventually blockage in gutter flow. This leads to overflow in many cases. So here we provide a fully automated drain gutter cleaning mechanism to tackle these modern day gutter jamming issues. Our system uses an automated gutter/drain cleaning system that lets fluids flow through it but catches large solid waste like bottles & plastic and accumulates it. So gutter cleaners need to just clean these gutter cleaning systems installed at points instead of cleaning entire gutter floors. Our system consists of metal teeth based jaws that wait at the bottom of the mechanism. The vertical frame bed is used to let liquid flow but catch all solid waste. The system consists of a filter basket on top of it. After particular time intervals the jaw lifts up using a motorized shaft which is connected using a chain to the jaws. It then reaches the top and turns upside down to dump the solid waste. Now after dumping the waste, the motor rotates again to bring the jaw again to the bottom position to collect more waste. The system is a very efficient way to cleaning gutters & drains.
