HHO generator?

Unread postAuthor: brother361 » Wed Jul 02, 2008 10:51 pm

has anyone succesfully built an hho generator and if you have can i see some pics. iam currently trying to build 1 and im trying to get an idea i understand how they work

HHO is for people who failed chemistry.

I have some friends that made one. Sorry I have no pic of it.

It did generate HHO and they think it will work in a car but I don't think the science supports it. The energy that goes into creating the HHO can be higher than what you get out. You can fry an alternator if you are not careful. If you use salt in the water it can create chlorine gas wich is very toxic. It also can get hot and create steam that goes into your engine and that is not good for it.

But don't let me stop you. This is an area that I would like to be proven wrong. Good luck and be careful.

I concur. There's nothing new with this "HHO". It's amazing though, many people think this is some new found miracle gas.

First, I'd recommend you to use google, learn some chemistry. :idea:
Then even read more, like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrolysis

But even then, hydrogen(H) is quite dangerous, not even mentioning the chloride gas(when burned with the hydrogen it will create hydrochloric acid), and I think thats one of the last things you would like in your car/lungs/whatever :D

If you are trying to HHO-power your car, then yes.
If your just having fun with Hydrogen and Oxygen gas mixtures, then no.
Im building one too. :)
I just need to find RVS wire to connect the electrodes inside.

Here is my electrolysis generator machine:

Image

Soldered to each electrode is a one-foot-long length of wire with an alligater clip soldered to the other end. At the top of each gas collector is a one-foot length of .170" ID plastic tubing. The larger, open pipe is to hold water.

I tested it with three 6-volt batteries in parallel, and it generated gas (I had to unscrew the caps on the gas collector to see it) but not a lot. I need a better power source and I'm low on funds (hence no car battery), so any suggestions would be helpful. I want to have a steady flow of gas, but I don't have delusions of any significantly forceful output. I was thinking about a computer power supply, but that's expensive too.

Thanks,
goose_man

Why do you think chlorine gas would be involved?

chlorine is only made in salt water.

goose--get a wall socket and a diode. try not to kill yourself. :D
Starman--well, when there's salt in the water electrolysis seperates it into Sodium(OMG reactive metal) and chlorine(OMG poisonous gas)

Uuuhh yeeahh, I'm familiar with the chemistry of it. And why would you suppose salt would be anywhere within 50 feet of a proper hydrogen electrolysis operation?

Yeah, I'm in the process of making one ATM, I'll post the results.

I treid this: http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/how-to- ... 11635.html

But I think I did it wrong at it kinda sucked, so I'm trying my own design. If it works, i'll post a how-to.

ok ive already dont that im not an idiot i researched and eveerything and btw chlorine gas is only produced when you use salt im using backing soda so thats not a problem :o

i believe you could use the realy big flashlight batteries in parrell that might work im not sure how much they are but you could try
