Pneumatic Sand Filtering Project
Pneumatic Sand Filtering Project report
Abstract: Here we demonstrate the fabrication system. Sand is used in construction, manufacturingand many industries. Sand needs to be filtered and separated from unneeded particles, stones and other large particles before it is put to use. Our system puts forward a fully automated sandfiltering and separator system that automatically filters sand poured on it. Here we use amotorized shaft that is mounted horizontally using mounts. The shaft is connected to a filter frame with mesh below and enclosing frame on the sides. We now have a rod connected from theshaft to the filter frame in away such as to achieve the best horizontal motion. Also we have aframe to hold the filter frame in place while ensuring proper horizontal motion at the same time.On switching on the motor using our motor controller circuit, the system allows to operate themotor. This allows us to operate the sand filter motion for appropriate sand filtering needs. Pedal power is the transfer of energy from a human source through the use of a foot pedaland crank system. This technology is most commonly used for transportation and has been usedto propel bicycles for over a hundred years. Less commonly pedal power is used to poweragricultural and hand tools and even to generate electricity. Some applicationsinclude pedal powered laptops, pedal powered grinders and pedal powered water wells. Some third world development projects currently transform used bicycles into pedal powered tools for sustainabledevelopment. This project concentrates on pedal powered sand filter and separation. An individual can generate four times more power (1/4 HP) by pedaling than by handcranking. At the rate of ¼ HP, continuous pedaling can be served for only short periods,approximately 10 minutes. However, pedaling at half this power (1/8 HP) can be sustained for close to 60 minutes but power capability can depend upon age. As a consequence of the brainstorming exercise, it was apparent that the primary function of pedal power one specific product was particularly useful: the bicycle. Many devices can be run right away with mechanical energy. Sieving machine serves is to remove large grains with a small grain through a sieve. Separation occurs when the sand is placed on top of a filter having holes size. The first sieving isdone to get rid of the sand with a larger than standard withholding sand filter -Design and Fabrication of Development of Sand filter and Separator PedalPowered.
