Hello All, Just seeing if there is someone that wants to continue this project. Still looking to get design and then a mould, create and them get manufactured. It’s a great project if you are looking to build batteries for off-grid. We had a good start, yet been stopped for a few weeks now.
PS I have order supplies to make batteries and to make Heating walls 🙂
It looks to be a simple system. Yet Buring fuel to make fuel to burn, is not helping to keep the CO2 down. it is a solution, yet maybe not burn and create other products 🙂
There are no terminals as such. It depends on the uses and configuration. The Sidewalls 9Graphfoil become the terminals. Yet we will have to run two wires to connect to equipment.
I have not created this type of battery before. I need to create the parts first. So I figure that I start with creating the Battery frame. Then I can order the materials to build the batteries.
I will make videos and post the Build 🙂
Not critical 1mm best No.
Less chipping and ease of release from the mould.
The HPDE component is the Frame of the Battery.
Several layers of Graphfoil and Carbon Black sheets, are heat sealed to form the Sidewall.
The hole is the fill hole for Zinc Bromide.
The hole gets sealed and then changed the battery.
Build many, create battery banks and be off-grid. Or for Emergency Power
PS next Moulds, EV scooter/car Full 1 piece Frame, with GHDPE and Drive Wheel Hubs.
Tim, we just need the 1MM Rad on the outside Corners and to looks like all we need for the design.
Great job, TY 🙂
I’m thinking that we can mould into individual uint, or several.
Yet maybe able to press in a continue tube and cut to 1cm Wide??
@nicam Join us and we can share “POWER we ALL Need and Can HAVE It!!” https://davehakkens.nl/community/forums/topic/power-we-all-need-and-can-have-it
Hi Tim, Great to get this from you. TY
1. There is no bottom, Just sides walls frames (HDPE sheets will form the top/bottom walls)
2. Corners will have a Rad. 1mm? or cutting tool dia.
3. I forgot to mention the Liquid fill hole. On 1 side of the 8cm sides, need a 2mm hole in the center or 4CM from the edge.
The Drawing can show the hole. Yet when making the mould, maybe easier to drill the hole out as to creating a Mould??
Thanks and looking forward to building 🙂
This could also be printed with 3D printer HDPE Filament.
What plan, or vision do you have?
Yes that is Correct Zinc Bromide Batteries. I have a way to create on a small scale and once we get set up, can mass produce, and open it up for others to Create 🙂
Hi Tim 🙂
Thanks for this.
The Battery is getting 1.85V 3A with 10K cycles at this time. Yet we are looking to get more with bigger batteries in the future. We want to create a battery for Charging cell phones first.
Craig from NL, and we are digging out from the Super Winter Storm and 80cm of snow. It’s Canada A 😉
I have lived across Canada, NL, NS, NB, ON, QC, AB, BC, and travelled through the rest. We have a Great Country, yet we have a lot to do to make it the Best.
Each of us is doing a small part to make it the BEST!!
I’m interested and looking into setting a PP in NL. There are a few on the Map.
If you have not, done. Look to see if you have funding available to you, for Creating yours. In NL we have http://mmsb.nl.ca/funding-programs/ I’m hoping to get a $15K Grant to start.
Yet at this time I’m looking to create Batteries so that we can become more sustainable.
I need to get an HDPE Case designed, Moulds built, and Manufacturing components
If you have the skills to Create the Design, Make moulds, manufacture.
Then let’s do this.
For the small amount that the Shredder can spread at one time. I feel that the motors are overrated. Liking the idea of the mobile unit, has anyone tried a 12vDC high torque, low-speed motor? like these shorturl.at/fDUV4
Much Cheaper and lighter 🙂
I have been looking at the idea of making the Shredder with Plastic,
First, you mine the Graphite. Crush to different mesh size, depending on the Flakes needed for the market. To make Graphene there are several different processes. In the past, mass production was the problem. That is now solved and mass production of graphene is possible. This will open the markets to Graphene now. You can buy here for testing. https://workingink.co.uk/ What Robert to see what we can now do with Graphene 🙂 LOTS :)) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4AkVj-qnJxNtKuz3rkq16A
I will have to order more paint to work with.
Any pics, videos, to share.
Great work and keeping Precious Plastic alive 🙂
Getting a few buckets for testing 🙂
Was this problem resolved?
Seasteading is a Great idea. https://www.seasteading.org/
Yet I would look to getting into International waters to have or create True Freedom and become the Plastic Nation. Floating islands can be made with GHDPE Composit Structure and Graphaircrete for the Floating Modular Block
Is this the Video?
From packing peanuts to disposable coffee cups, each year the US alone produces some two billion pounds of Styrofoam — none of which can be recycled. Frustrated by this waste of resources and landfill space, Ashton Cofer and his science fair teammates developed a heating treatment to break down used Styrofoam into something useful. Learn more about their original design.
Yes it would be great to get the stats and see what the best ratios are for making pavement blocks
Not sure if dog owners would like their dogs to be chewing on plastic. Yet there seems to be a lot of toys made for dogs, out of plastic.
This unit looks to have a good design, to make smaller.
