Thread: Which is the best plate configuration

  1. #1

    Default Which is the best plate configuration

    Ok... so... I'm gonna experiment with another set-up but I don't have a flowmeter.... I want to get the most HHO gas using less than 30amps.... I have about 8 plates.....

    Which would be the best configuration to get the most HHO?

    1) + n n - n n +

    2) + n n - - n n +

    3) + - + - + - + -

    4) + n - n + n -

    Well that all depends on who you ask-everyone has differing opinions. Here goes-

    #1 and #2 are the same, #2 extra "-" plate only produces on one side while #1 does so on both.
    #3 produces very well, but with alot of heat and amp pull(unless a true series cell)
    #4 ? Never tried that one

    I tried #1 and #2

    #1 produced more heat for some reason on the (-) negitive terminal averaged 10 degrees more.

    #2 Is what I use on my unit which produces a minimum 1 LPM 198 sq.in. surface area w/ .0625 plate spacing.

    From what I have been reading, the closer the plates are the less draw in terms of relative hho production. I have done 1 and 3. The 3 was a definite producer, but I wasnt using good electrolyte. Plate spacing and the concentration of electrolyte will allow you to adjust the cell for the best bang for the buck.

    Hi IronBear,

    The #3 is mostly used for brute force type Oxyhydrogen (HHO) gas generators ( give it as much as it can take )

    I use #2 because of the "distilled white vinegar" in the Oxyhydrogen (HHO) gas generator I use. The reason being because of the .0625 plate gap and the Electrolyte being totally ECO friendly ( dump it on you and smell like a pickle and not get your skin burnt off or go blind ).

    I always go safety first, to many little kids around "eye" level and curious, couldn't live with a accident hurting anyone for just for some HHO.

    Regards,
    Fuzzy

    SUPER THANKS guys for all the input!!!! Very informative!!

    I think I'm gonna go with #2 since a couple of you have tried that & seem to have some success.... I'll use vinegar & water to keep the temp down a bit. My plates aren't completely straight so I'll use two of those .062 washers in between the plates

    One of these days I'll quit being a NOOB & get me a flow meter

    Waht about

    +nnnnnn--nnnnn+
    or
    +nnnnn-nnnnn+
    Would the second - in the middle help or take away

    The double neg. in the first one produces on only one side. The single neg. on the second one produces on both sides.

    I have been playing with two cells with:
    1- +nn-nn+
    2- +nn--nn+

    The only difference I have noticed is a slight temp difference. #2 being a little lower. I used same electrolite measurements in both. I mixed up the electrolite in one container and split it between the two cells.

    yea... with this project... I only had eight plates....

    I did the +nn--nn+ like several others recommended.... works GREAT in my 4 cylinder (25mpg to 40mpg)

    NOW you can help me on my NEW project with 24 plates =)

    I am currently using a 9 plate dry cell. I have tried two different configurations.

    #1) +nnn-nnn+
    #2) -nnn+nnn-

    To my suprise the the #2 configuration was visually pruducing quite a bit more hho. I dont have a flowmeter built yet to verify my findings. I am using baking soda (1/8 cup per liter) and tap water and a battery charger set at 12v. Water only gets warm to the touch on either configuration.

    Has anyone else tried this configuration? same results?
