Thread: My hho dry cell does not work..please help

    Default My hho dry cell does not work..please help

    i am shaunak from india...
    i m a mechanical engineer ..i have designed a fuel cell as part of my engineering project...
    but problem is its not working.
    its a dry cell.
    details
    its a 7 cell
    i used 8 stainless steel 304 grade plates of dimension 200mm*160mm
    9 pvc spacers of 200mm*160mm and made a hexagonal large hole at centre of each spacer.
    240mm*200mm acrylic backplates.
    stacked and tightened it using bolts and nuts ...insulation tube is provided around each bolt to avoid contact with plates...
    used 25% NaOH and passed power using 12v car battery..it dint work..then used KOH 28% that too dint work...but when i plced only 2 ss 304 plates in a jar and supplied voltage electrolysis started...i checked my fuel with multimeter and no shortage was found...
    i was wondering if it has anything to do with my power supply...
    the car battery i used had 9.16v and the power supply i used had 13 volt but maximum 2ampere limit...
    PLEASE HELP ME OUT

    Dear Shaunak,
    Kindly call me on 9145470480 and discuss with me about configuration,connection type series/parallel and gap between the plates, and by using 200mm x 160mm plates how much production of hho you aimed at.

    I believe the problem is the amount of voltage in your battery. If you take a multimeter and measure the voltage between two plates that are next to each other, I bet you get close to 1.55 volts. Electrolysis needs more voltage. If I recall correctly, I think it needs 1.8 - 2.2 volts. Take one or two plates out and I bet you will get HHO. This is the reason it worked when you used only 2 plates. There was enough voltage.

    As with anything...I could be wrong, but try it and let me know what you find.
