of the structure of the lava l amp Preparation Manufacturing Finished lamp Links Clarifications __________________________________crea your lava lamp first of all: If you want to build your own lava lamp you should be aware that i t is at your own risk. Some of the chemicals you use can be dangerous not only f or their own health, but also for the environment. Please take precautions! = = Lava Lamp This type of lamp can be used to illuminate or the mood places, splashing the wa lls with light moving, creating incredible shapes, always different and infinite ly variable within the liquid. Can be placed in any room, bathroom, living room, office, bar, restaurant, business, etc ... The energy consumption of the lamp i s minimal! Now that better than creating your own design, using different shapes , color combinations, reflecting your personal touch. Examples of lamps: __________________________________crea your lava lamp then the materials and steps to make your lamp, making it fun! __________________________________crea your lava lamp Materials: Glass Bottle Sp ring embedded base of copper Trichloroethylene - Perchloroethylene Paraffin (Wax ) Industrial salt (or the purest you get) Detergent Concentrate Ethylene Glycol (antifreeze) RECOMMENDATIONS: Paraffin: Used to make candles, can be found in craft stores an d grocery and market, sold per kilo The spring or spring: preferably should be b ased on copper, as this is the best conductor of heat. Bottle: may be one of any alcoholic beverage, but should be well washed and well dried so it does not bre ak out with the formula, I recommend you find one that still retains its top. Ba se: this should be metallic, may be the packaging of a soda can cut, depending o n the width of your bottle, it will focus inward. When your lamp is not hot or c old should give the air and can form small bubbles in the wax, which will be ver y bad. Trichloroethylene: non-flammable volatile liquid, transparent, heavy and colorless with a sweet odor. you can buy at places that sell chemicals not found in pharmacies or hardware stores. (read the precautions for use) Ethylene: a th ick liquid with no odor, is used as antifreeze. __________________________________crea your lava lamp manufacture of the structu re of the lamp: Step 1: Set the lamp holder at the bottom of the can with plaste r. Warning: It takes some time until the plaster dries completely. Please be patient and wait before turning the lamp with the power to prevent a short circuit. Step 2: In another I can cut a hole in the bottom, so that the bulb socket can f it through it. Step 3: Both cans fit together perfectly. This is only a suggestion out of thousands. But it works very well. The second p icture shows the Dareks solution. It also works very well. __________________________________crea your lava lamp

Step 4: I took some time to find a suitable bottle made of crystal formed and fi ts well my lamp. You have to clean the bottle carefully before use. If the bottl e is not clean the lava is pasted on the inner surface that looks quite ugly. It is important that the bottle can be closed without any leakage. So please take care! Step 5: a bottle cap for out of a can. Printing on the surface was removed with sand paper. Step 6: The spring in the bottom of the bottle is very important. Crusher acts a s the surface tension for bubbles coming down. This is so the bubbles can be eas ily combined with the remaining liquid lava, and that the bottom of the bottle i s always covered completely. Spring is also responsible for the size of the bubb les. Large bubbles even if the viscosity of the fluid lava is low when the lamp is hot. Step 7: Okay, the lamp is ready to use now, but there is something very importan t missing ..... on !!!!!! fluid lava __________________________________crea your lava lamp Manufacture of the lava: Mix well in a water bath of paraffin 70%, 30% of Triclo roetinol, and some drops of food coloring for color candle with the wish that ho lds the lava.€To check whether the mixture is well throw a drop in a jar with w ater and have to sink because as the fleet is poured paraffin trichlorethylene t o decant and melts faster. In the case of having to add more cool trichlorethyle ne all, do not take the hot mixture. __________________________________crea your lava lamp Preparation: We take a gla ss bottle that will make the lamp where it will be floating in the liquid lava a nd we introduce a spring previously embedded in lava. The spring will see that t he lava moves and bubbly as it leads the heat better. On the basis that we hold the bottle to a bulb approx. 1 cm. Which would be responsible for heating the li quid, the value of the bulb should be taken as per the following table: 25 Watts 40 watts 60 watts 100 watts Up to 300 Up to 500 cm3 cm3 cm3 to 1250 cm3 1250 The values in this table are hypothetical will also depend on the distance to th e bottle and glass thickness the same, and the type of lamp that we use as the h eat ditroicas a short distance over which are more suitable. Once we entered the lava prepared everything in the bottle, in this case if prep ared long time step must be warmed to make this malleable and can place it in th e bottle. The floating liquid where the lava is made up of distilled water which has fewer impurities, antifreeze ensures that the lava does not stick to glass, industrial salt to level density and detergent to break the surface tension of water. Having explained the components used to move on to: __________________________________crea Finished your lava lamp lamp light the la mp should NOT to be completed in full with liquid and capped. Pour in the bottle with distilled water mixed with industrial salt or that are managed, more cryst alline high purity water. The lava in this case would have to begin to float but not in the form of pellets as this occurs only when you are finished. This is t he time of calibration of the lamp, this is very important to work correctly. (T he salt is to level the density of the liquid) The lamp is calibrated when you h ave a small amount of floating lava and most of the lava in the background. I re commend you start adding very little salt water without any floating lava and ad d salt to the water that we are adding up to float the lava, not to rub salt tha

t does not come out directly, I recommend this way because if we spent the entir e fleet of salt and should take the liquid and add it again. Finally we added et hylene glycol (antifreeze) and a few drops of detergent, if we spend, sausages w ashed out, unless large bubbles. The turn on and then takes about 10-15 minutes to start working. Notes: For calibration if you look to reach a lower speed you can add do not use it in the forum is that t. Calibration is safer with salt. tifreeze but not much, always with that up too fast and the salt can not fix it more trichlorethylene but drops it to me but you can add a few drops. I do not recommend i If it sticks to the walls of lava add more an the liquid cold water.
