Thread: New Design Idea

  1. Default New Design Idea

    Has anyone ever tried using Stainless Steel Ball Bearings as the negative and a stainless pipe as the positive.
    Figure a piece of PVC in the middle a 1/2" Stainless Steel pipe outside that a 3/4" stainless pipe with holes drilled. Then fill the PVC pipe with ball bearings attaching stainless wire to a few as they fill the outside of the pipe. All the bearings would be grounded because they would be touching. The area is three times that of a single plate.
    If you took the neutral pipe to the top you could separate the hydrogen from the oxygen.
    Any thoughts. Like I said this is just an idea.
    6mm to 8MM ball bearings.

    Default It won't matter in this case if you are running only a few amperes.

    Current is what produces the volume of gasses. If you are at or below the current flux density of an ampere per square centimeter ( rule of thumb to prevent plating action ), extra surface area is a moot point. If you are running thousands of amperes, then your idea has merit.
