Step 8: How It Works

Hahas there you go for those curious one.
Sorry guys haha but this is drawn during my slacking class periods.

Do Question me for deeper info on how it work!
Put a vent on the other side of the radiator to blow air throu
where did you buy the radiator??? link please :D
Well done, all of your coolers are great ideas, hope to see more stuff from you on the site!
<br> Wow you have a really creative mind. This is really awesome. I tries it and it sort of works just fine.<br> <a href="http://www.iqappliances.com/">http://www.iqappliances.com/</a><br>
where did you get that radiator? cant find one that cheap.
btw you spelled artic air wrong its arctic air<br>
thnx alot u are very intelligent
Add some salt to the water. Mythbusters proved that salt in the water will drop the temp big time, meaning less ice pack change outs and probably a cooler breeze.
Meaning MORE ice changing NOT less.
It only dropped water temperature because it was in direct contact with the ice. Salt melts ice in direct contact hence salting the roads and side walks in winter in the northern states. It melts the ice faster causing the water overall the be brought closer to freezing point. So salt=less time cold=colder temperature for time being. Not with ice packs tho.
I wonder if there are any portable AC's out there that don't use ice. Something like:<br> <br> ___________________<br> | &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; | &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;<br> | &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;____________ &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; |Cold air out<br> | &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; | &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;| &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; |<br> | &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;| &nbsp; ________ &nbsp; &nbsp;| &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; |<br> | &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;|_| &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;|_ | &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; |<br> | &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;__ &nbsp; FAN &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;_____|<br> |___| &nbsp; &nbsp;|________| &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;<br> <br> Left side is the radiator. Theory: The fan would compress the air in there. When the air decompresses, it releases energy and so cools the environment. It's only a maybe so... nah. rated as 4.5 :D
how did you get the box? I'm a Singaporean too!!!
hardware shops in tampines! or go to a fish shop! ask for an ice box!
but I live in the west...
Hmm... tries any fishing shops??? there? shure have one! good luck finding one! sometimes skp have them
Try FIshing SHOPS! at changi.
many people said it ws a waste of electricity to make the ice: however i disagree because the ice is made no matter what. so technically ur not paying for anything but the water.
This is really awesome. However, someone like me who is totally clueless about anything related to manual construction, a portable air conditioner though more expensive, would do just fine. I thought I would share some great thechnological advancement with you all out there about portable air conditioner industry. It is a new invention called AutoDrain NanoMist Technology introduced by Amcor Plasma Cool. Check it out -<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.plasmacoolportableac.com/What-is-AutoDrain-NanoMist-Technology-.php">http://www.plasmacoolportableac.com/What-is-AutoDrain-NanoMist-Technology-.php</a><br/><br/>I had the pleasure of seeing one of these units at my friends place and she could not stop raving about it.<br/>
nice this is a good idea i want to try it some time
gr8 job....but could give much more detail abt the positioning of the radiator and vent as even i was planning on making an ac as my PC gets really hot....plz give much more detailed info and pics
hahaha i built one of these two years ago out of an old hairdryer and some pvc pipe! pretty sweet! a cool idea would be to use a Stirling engine to power the fan!
Yeah.. maybe the cold can be used for the stirling engine instead of the heat. haha good idea tho!
Great job. Pretty cheap. Do you notice any difference in the air room temp.
ouhh.. my room is pretty small but btw i dont hav any thermometer with me. But ive cooled my room with it. and its noticable after 2-3 hours operating this bugger at a hot day.That is with 2 times of reloading of ice. and one thing good about this is that ive set a timer plug and for first 1hour of cooling, by the time.. im asleep then it will be a normal fan. hahas cool ehk this thing replaced my normal fan f.y.i.
