• Swamp Cooler

    For BM2013, I wanted to try to cool our Hexayurt using evaporative cooling. This device, commonly called a swamp cooler, uses evapoarting water to chill air. This chilled air is then blown int the Hexayurt.
    It did work, but only slightly. This was due to low airflow and a porrly built Hexayurt that leaked cool air out into the playa.

September 25, 2013 - I like to test swamp coolers!



August 16, 2013 - Been a while! Getting ready for burning man 2013. Its been an amazing amount of effort. I'm building (with help of course) a shade structure, a hexa-yurt, shade structure lighting, swamp coolers, power box, and one amazing lighted costume. These pics are of my swamp cooler. I built it with Duracool internal fabric and a 200mm fan. At 110 cfm on the fan, I'm hoping it keeps our hexayurt nice and cool!. The fan even has lights!
