Work in Progress January 4, 2019

The boxes that were made to house the balloons were abandoned for shorter interconnecting air passages since the boxes had created longer air passage route and had taken too much air supply leaving less air for the inflation/deflation for the balloons. The new configuration for the 16 balloons using tighter and closer connections between balloons was more efficient and lesser taxing on the compressor.

60 gallon tanks will run the 16 balloons for 16 minutes at 40 psi and a separate regulator at 20psi for the air flow for air signal timing device.

Work in Progress, December 2018

The Balloon Project in Progress. 16 balloons. Compressor 60 gallons tank, 3.5 HP, 220V. The 60 gallons full tank will run at 40psi using a regulator for 12 min. The inflation/deflation of balloons at 4 sec in 3 sec out.

Fantasizing running the balloons like in a circus with a monkey peddling a bike that channel air into the balloons. If anyone knows the mechanic of doing this please email me. It’s the same principle of a motor running the Ferris Wheel. A stationery bike with an electric motor would work similarly. Talking out loud and throwing ideas in the air.
