Project Title Redox Clothes Drying Rack
Project Category Innovation
Abstract Redox Clothes Drying Rack is one of the innovation products to monitor clothes drying process by electrolysis method (Redox). Normally, people just dried their clothes under sun drying and monitor it manually. Most of the time people especially housewives spent more time to monitor their clothes for drying process (under sun drying) and this situation makes it very difficult for them to go out for other activities. Besides that, unpredictable weather conditions during daytime also makes this drying process becomes more complicated. Then, by applying this method, monitoring clothes drying process becomes easier especially during rainy days. Electrolysis process is non-spontaneous reaction, in other words, no energy is produced without presence of water even though it is being connected with secondary source energy. During rainy days, water flows into the electrolysis cell and the presence of water will derive electrolysis from non-spontaneous to become spontaneous reaction which OH-(hydroxide ion) will be oxidized to produce electron and transfer to Na+ (sodium ion) and be reduced. This process is redox process and will produce electricity due to electron transfer. Once electricity is produced, it will rotate the motor to pull the clothes drying rack into the house. The advantage of this innovation is that it can be operated without electricity power supply (semi automatic control) and only requires secondary source energy like battery (save energy).
