I will start building it if i am lucky in 3 weeks from now (College final exams!!!! ouff)! ! End only if i found an optimal thin plastic tube ! AND KICK OUT!!!
I will make a freaking tutorial !
This is more or less close with what i am thinking Space suit cooling system
I am not going to disappoint you guys!
all you need is a pump, tubing, and resevoir. in the backplate section of the armor you have more than enough room to create a heatsink that will draw the heat out of the water. Attached File cooler.bmp ( 729.05K ) Number of downloads: 15
Hm! i don't thing so
I will make the cooling system in separately sectors ( Fore example right leg, left leg,right hand,left hand torso,back,head) with a therm sensor (therm-resistor) in each one of them! In order to secure the fact that each part of the body will have the right temperature! No i am not going crazy! I all keep the cost very low!
Wow! You read my mind. Just the other night I was pricing thermoelectric peltier junctions. Mind you, I have no formal background in thermodynamics, so I was just going with the trial and error route. Power was the main thing I was concerned about, but a cordless tool battery is a great idea. It would be cool to see someone who has a background in this kind of thing make one.Loess said:I just got my heat transfer books back out, it's been a while since I took that in school though. Give me some time for relearning forced convection in tubes. The vest that has coolant supplied to different zones equally is the design I was looking at.
The current plan (subject to modification, physics is a cruel mistress) is to use a 12 volt cordless tool battery for power. That will be running a circulatory pump and thermoelectric cooler module to move the heat out of the water into a heat-sink where a fan can move the heat into the air.
Give me time to run the numbers on sizing everything, I have to relearn it as I go.
500watts i seriously dont think you need to remove that much heat also were the fin like area on the back of the armour is well large enough to mount most radators.Loess said:That's very close to my plan, I just have to figure out if it's possible to fit a large enough heat sink into the armor to dissipate 500 watts of heat without raising the temperature of the sink to where it's dangerous to wear. Don't want to burn the user or melt their armor. The hose will be built into the underarmor, and cool most of the torso. I've got some tubing and a fountain pump now, so I can test water temperatures for comfort, and get an idea of how to size the cooler.
