MEG Eco fair Waterwheel Tests

MEG Eco fair Waterwheel Tests
=========================
We trial installed the MEG Hydro waterwheel at Whitegates and ran it under load. Here it is powering up 2x 20 watt household Halogen lamps. They only slowed it a little.. meaning that we should easily double the power output to 80 watts 🙂 -- We ran it for 45 minutes under power and it performs even better than we had hoped. Passing walkers seemed to love it 🙂 We need to raise the gearing next to spin the generator faster and perfect the sluice height at the delivery end to fill the chambers a little better... but it performs very well and great for our ECO fair on Friday 1st December 2017.

When I purchased one of my Fuji cameras a few years ago I tested it's high speed mode - at 490 frames per second !! Here is the short video I created.. It's called ' WHEN MILKDROPS DANCE' and features white milk drops dropping into black tea revealing a world that we seldom notice. Not exactly Montgomery focused but I hope you like the result 🙂
