Bifurcation of Aquatic weed by Reap Cleansing Organon

The beauty of nature lies in simplicity.

Water hyacinth mats physically slow the flow of water in large and slow-moving bodies of water, causing suspended particles to precipitate and silt to form. If a flowing waterway contains approximately 13600 liters of water, the water hyacinth absorbs approximately 4760 liters (35 percent) of freshwater, which is significantly larger than its normal evaporating percentage. These plants reduce the flow of water by blocking canals, rivers, and chambers during floods and have a negative impact on irrigation systems due to their densely compacted linkages and thick abusive nature. The Water Hyacinth plants which grow in thick mats on the water’s surface, block the path of sun rays passing through the water, preventing aquatic animals from living there.

Our excursion starts on the exceptionally following day of the stormy season. The water over streams the way through the extension and spreads everywhere near and in. The tightly packed blockage of water hyacinth in the progression of water bodies in extension and pine lines made it difficult to pass through. Although it looked beautiful yet the plants tend to interrupt the water distribution.

Our solution BARCO isolates the water hyacinth alone just before it gets converted into strands and the assortment and the interaction happen AT THE POINT SOURCE. I propose you this machine that chips away at unbiased lightness where it doesn’t sink or rise and stays stable all through the interaction. We don’t just collect the plants here but they’re also changed over into slender strands via the mechanical process.

Principle of BARCO
Here as you see the conveyer belt which is inclined at a 45degree position collects the water hyacinth plants from the surface of the water and transfers them into the two crushing rollers one of which rotates in a clockwise direction and the other vice-versa. During this process, about 50% of water is drained from the water hyacinth, thus reducing the payload of the plants during collection itself. The crushing plants are then collected and stored in the storage chamber.

The mobility of the machine is with the help of thrusters which is responsible for the movement on the water surface.
