CINVA RAM PDF

Tags: earth blocks , natural building , My wife and I are very interested in using compressed earth block CEB building techniques for the homestead we are planning in northeast Georgia. Also, have there been any new developments in sealing CEB walls against moisture? One of the design features of the original CINVA ram was that it could be fabricated just about anywhere a welder and plate steel are available. Local fabrication, compact size, and manual operation have made it ideal for international development projects and owner-builders such as you. So, where will you find one today? Internationally, the Auram press made in India is an excellent manual press.

As for sealing CEB walls against moisture, there are not any new developments that I am aware of. Most of the tried and true methods, some of which are centuries if not millennia old, such as lime plasters, have been working just fine. A linseed and bees wax mix would be an example. You can make it yourself or purchase it from several companies that recommend it for sealing wood; however, some brands are much better then others.

Land Ark is one company I have used successfully in the past. Standard masonry sealers will also work. When looking for a sealer, choose one that is non-toxic, biodegradable and vapor permeable.

Cinva Ram Compressed Earth Block Press Plans

FREE House Plans Cinva RAM The advance of CEB into the construction industry has been driven by manufacturers of the mechanical presses, a small group of eco-friendly contractors and by cultural acceptance of the medium in areas where it is seen as superior to adobe. However, manufacturers of the mechanical presses enjoy their heaviest sales overseas. Mexico and Third World countries have been attractive markets for the presses for years. The advantages of CEB are in the wait time for material, the elimination of shipping cost, the low moisture content, and the uniformity of the block thereby minimizing, if not eliminating the use of mortar and decreasing both the labor and materials costs. Because it is not wet, the drying time is much shorter. Some soil conditions permit the blocks to go straight from the press onto the wall. A single mechanical press can produce from to over 5, blocks per day, enough to build a 1, square feet m2 house in one day.

Is the Original CINVA Ram Still Available for Making Compressed Earth Blocks?

I hope it helps people. I hunted and hunted around for a set of plans to build one, and came up empty handed. So I bought a set of paper plans from a dealer of natural building books. I forget her name. I believe she retired immediately thereafter and someone new is running her show. This was ok, except that the plans were in metric units!

Notes from Windward: #67

It might help to think of a sustainability organization as a set of concentric circles that interest with other concentic circles. While Windward has lots of tools, and even tools that make other tools, there are times when it helps to have friends who have tools that complement ours. And so when it was time to start making our own CINVA ram, it made sense to head to town and use their heated shop to at least do the initial work. Behind the shop, our friends have this wonderful storage area that contains all sorts of used metal, hyraulic hoses, bearings, tanks, motors, etc. As a snow flurry swirled its way through the work yard, we focused on finding what we needed before it got covered up with fresh snow. With a bit of luck and imagination, we found a large piece of scrap that suited our needs and dragged it into the heated shop. In order to make a straight cut with an acetylene torch, you need a fence to drag the torch head along.
