A Detailed Study on Design and Fabrication of an Efficient Handling Water Weed Removing Machine

Water hyacinth, which is dense, long, shiny, ovate leaves, is the most known free-floating perennial aquatic plant. It may rise as much as a meter in height above the surface of the water. The leaves are 10 to 20 cm long and float above the surface of the water. They have stalks that are long, spongy and bulbous. Purple-black are the feathery, freely hanging roots. A single spike of 8 to 15 conspicuously attractive flowers, mostly lavender to pink in color with six petals, supports an erect stem. Water hyacinth can be mistaken for frog’s-bit when not in bloom. Such water weeds must require large amounts of water to grow, which is a major concern in today’s world where the supply of water is limited if it is reduced. Water hyacinth, one of the fastest growing plants known, reproduces mainly by way of runners or stolons that eventually form daughter plants. Thousands of seeds per year can be produced by each plant, and these seeds can remain viable for more than three decades. So far, only with the use of human resources has the lake water cleaning process been carried out. This project deals with the design and manufacture of a system for effective water weed removal handling. With the concept of minimizing working time, remote control of the system for water weed removal has been suggested. The water weeding machines are developed and implemented using smart phones to ensure human ease of handling by monitoring the removal of water weeds. The experimental scenario shows the successful handling of the unit for water weed removal. In the further scenario, “The engine for effective weed removal operation should be set and the profile of the blades of the weed remover should be optimized.”
