THE *COOL* COOLING HAT

Ok I had an idea... Yesterday while I was taking processors off of motherboards.... I found a rather normal looking heat sink. and droped it on my hat. By now you have probably figured it out that I have a messy room and I want to make a cool(ing) hat. So I am thinking of running a little pump (very little) and fan off of 1-2 9v batteries. Some Kind of coolant (water) and a couple of prototypes And I will have a cooling hat.... (YES PEOPLE I REALIZE ITS WINTER!!! (where I live)) Any ideas ?

My project I would like to complete is a thermoelectric piece of turbo piping to cool on my friends drift car it needs to be able to run on a 12v battery .I am looking at buying a few of these http://www.allelectronics.com/make-a-store/item/pjt-7/40mm-x-44mm-thermoelectric-cooler/1.html building a square piece of turbo piping to put it in. I am still not quite sure exactly how it works. I am a Ford Technician, Ford uses them in the heated and cooled seats so they kinda explained how they work but they left quite a bit out. So a lil info or suggestions would be appreciated thanks. If I build it I'll be sure and put the build up on here.

Laptop Cooling Question

I'm using a laptop-sized, vented, inverted vegetable tray to keep the laptop cool. It's quite effective even without any fans in this scorching heat. I added a CPU fan underneath ( 12 V, 0.42 A), and ran it off a USB cable from the laptop. The air is quite nice, but one thing I'm a bit worried is, when I touch the top of the laptop, it slightly vibrates constantly due to the fan underneath. Is that dangerous for the laptop? I'm planning to add another fan beneath the hard disk. The one I have now, is under the laptop's CPU fan. Another thing I would like to know is that, is it okay to run two fans of 042 A each, from two USB ports? Each USB port can supply 0.5 A max current. Running one fan off each port should be okay? But, today, the temperature was quite high in the afternoon, nearly 50 degrees! I'm thinking of buyin a readymade laptop cooler. One of these three cheap ones at ebay India: http://cgi.ebay.in/Folding-Chill-Pad-Stand-Laptop-Cooler-Cooling-2-Fan-/250631119144?cmd=ViewItem&pt;=LH_DefaultDomain_203&hash;=item3a5ac76128 http://cgi.ebay.in/Chill-Pad-Stand-Laptop-Cooler-3-Fans-USB-Fan-LED-Light-/250629679857?cmd=ViewItem&pt;=LH_DefaultDomain_203&hash;=item3a5ab16af1#shId http://cgi.ebay.in/New-Super-Mini-2-Fan-Foldable-Laptop-Cooling-Cooler-Pad-/280504780978?cmd=ViewItem&pt;=LH_DefaultDomain_203&hash;=item414f6348b2 Please advise / comment.

Power supply cooling

I'm building a power supply for my cnc machine that gives off about 37volts at 8 amps, and 12 volts at 0.9 amps. All of the transformers are from radioshack (using 6 heavy duty, 25.2volts, 2 amps transformers, 4 in parallel giving off 25.2 vdc at 8 amps, and 2 12.6 volts in parallel. Together in series gives about 37 volts at 8 amps. using 1 25.2 volts 450mA transformer, center tapped) My case does not have enough room for proper cooling such as fans. My case is water tight though, should I fill it up with something like mineral oil to keep the transformers cool?

power supply cooling

Normally I'm pretty good with electronics, but I need some help with this problem. I'm building a power supply for a cnc machine and I need help designing a circuit to power fans when it's over a certain temperature. Here's some things it needs: 1) 12 volts supply (easy with a transformer and filtering it) 2) power fans when it reaches a certain temperature. 3) still keeps the fans on even though the rest of the system is off. 4) after the system if off and it's down to temperature then the transformer turns off, to save electricity and to not make it hot after a long time. If possible can someone draw up a schematic? Thanks in advance!

Liquid Cooling - Body

Its so hot and... well.... I made a device to cool myself down! I might make an instructable, but basically, I took two 20oz bottles with caps, poked 2 holes in the top of one, 1 hole in the other. I then ran tubing between the two, and in the bottle with 2 holes, I added a bit of tubing to put the air intake below water level. I filled the 2'holer up with icewater, and blew a bit on the air intake to get it started. It works very well, to say the least! :P

Is a possible way to super cool a gas (nitrogen or oxygen) to liquid temperatures by using a sub-zero tank of 5000 psi compressed air to blast that gas over a radiator and therefore cool the gas in the radiator to a liquid, then quickly pump it to a chilled high pressure insulated tank.

Maximum cooling efficency

I am looking to build a compact cooling unit, sized under 12"x12"x12".  I have seen and built 2 of the most common types of home made air conditioning units.... 1) Run air across a block of ice or other frozen object. 2) Blow a fan through a whirl (or other pattern) of copper tubing and pump very cold water through. So my question is which would offer more cooling capacity? The first option is cooling with Ice which is below freezing, with minimal surface area.  The second option is cooling with cold water but still above 32 degrees, could potentially have more surface area.

Thermal Cooling and Heating

It is very possible and it is in use today by using Thermal Cooling and Heating from the earth. Performed by using a 6" well at least 100' deep, with thermal tubing inserted into the well carrying the liquid to be cooled/heated. Process is done by a circulating pump in the interior unit - through the coil - sending back through the well system and returning. It starts out from the main unit circ pump.......through the coils.......out to the "down tube" into the 6" well pipe, a sharp 180* turn back up the system returning to the circ pump. Such a system is used by many facilities to Air Condition or heat rooms of about 15' x 15' or so. I have even seen a system that utilized creek water as the "cooler" of the tubing on a circ pump system. That one really was cool, about 52 degrees. Have you heard of these systems or seen something like it or close?

Can one cool air with a bicycle pump?

Here is the thing. I'm going on a 5 day trip and I'm taking a cool box with me. A cool box will only stay cold for half a day with ice in it. Compressed gas becomes cold when it expands, but buying cans of whatever gas and releasing them in the box is wasteful and expensive. Air out of the bicycle pump is kind of cold, but not near cold enough. How can I decrease the temperature coming out of the nozzle ? Or does someone have a better idea on how to turn muscle power into cool drinks.

Super cooled Water

Hey all, I wasn't able to find where a short discussion about Super cooled water was posted not long ago, and I wanted to relate this incident; so if I get no replies, that is ok. I just thought it was kind of neat the way this occurred. Last night, well, I guess it was actually this morning ( 00:30 ), I left work and went to my car, got myself situated, and before driving off, I grabbed a bottle of water that was in the cup holder. I distinctly remember shaking it to make sure the water was NOT frozen. I also took note that the bottle was partially imploded; something I would have expected as the temp was down to about 17 o F. When I opened the bottle, put it to my mouth and tilted it, the unexpected happened. Between the moment of releasing the vacuum that had formed and my trying to drink from the bottle ( about 3 seconds), the water froze to a Slushy consistency. For a moment I was perplexed why I was getting no water in my mouth, and then it slid from the bottom, and it stopped at the neck of the bottle. I had forgotten that this could happen. I must have sat there looking at it for a good 2 minutes trying to get something out of the bottle, when I thought I would blow some warm air into it. The bottle inflated slightly, and the air passed by the slush, and when I released, I got a face full of slush. I had to laugh at myself all the way after that little incident. :-)
