The Basics of a Hydrogen Dry-Cell





Introduction: The Basics of a Hydrogen Dry-Cell

This Power-Point Shows The Basics Of A Hydrogen Dry Cell.
Also Here: hydrogen dry cell PP
Some of the benefits of a dry cell are that it is much less corrosive than submersion.  They are also very efficient, some 90% and up, unlike the average 20% of a combustion engine.  They have much higher output than other generators too, small ones get up to 6 liters per minute, 3 huge party pop bottles in a minute.
The down sides are that they are extremely expensive, and ... I don't know what else but feel free to tell me.

    the PDF link is no longer good would you please send it to me =), Thank you

    Oh, lol, this is the other half. This is the HHO generator, you need to look up a hydrogen fuel cell. It uses the hydrogen that this produces.
    this is how I first figured it out.

    can i request the pdf of your hydrogen dry cell please? thanks for sharing your bright and great idea. my email add:

    thanks a lot bro.

    Yea, I will put a pdf together, and I have an idea of my own that involves juice concentrate metal lids that I will be including and later putting into an instructible

    Did you wan't a copy of the file, If so I can send you one, I will also throw in my latest Idea which is awesome and a ton cheaper. Please Include an email if you wan't the file and the link isn't working

    OK, the solution here as you rightly corrected below is that if you have the negative closer, i did pos-n-n-neg and it begins bubbling quiet vigorously.

    The closer the you connect the neg the hotter and more nigerous it bubbles but things start getting hot but also the AMP per density of the Soda causes it to suck more AMPS in so i just to to tweak around a bit.

    But happy :) it's working.

    B.T.W i did grind every cell but still that didn't change anything it's the neg pos to far spaced apart, i guess as you say more volts and amps would get it going but my aim is to run 12 Volt battery bank!

    I am glad you got this running, the sell looks really cool and that is really good output.

    Yeah, thanks for the info. I followed your info and no other as it was a great digest of information more intelligent then i am.

    I would never achieve anything without such ppl sharing there bright thoughts. Thanks a lot!!!

    P.S. I will run this in my car next week.

    Just made an interesting observation.

    I turned the cell upside down while still connected by chance to begin drain empty the distilled water and soda to add some salt instead then i noticed it was producing hydrogen bubbling only in the small area just around the larger 10ml thick holes where it was drilled right through i also had to angle grind the bevel edges around the hole after drilling to get them smooth.

    So could it be that the plates are coated with something other then stainless steal and once gridded it is stainless steal below?

    I think your simplest solution right now is take your plates and see if they conduct electricity. The metal doesn't matter, we just use aluminum and stainless steel because it is not corroded by the process. From what it sounds like you may need to grind your plates down. I also have done some more research and need to do a follow up of this. One of the better wiring patterns is Pos-neutral-neutral-neutral-ground-neutral-neutral-neutral-pos. either that or something close that divides evenly into your number of plates. I actually learned that you should probably have between 2 and 4 neutral plates instead of the whole stack.
    If you have a port on both sides I bet that the electricity flows from around the hole through the hose to the other hole which also could explain the bubbles around the hole. I also may recommend lye for an electrolyte, it is much better than baking soda and salt. I also don't recommend aluminum. I am not sure if it is just me but my rods have been corroded down to nearly nothing in my $100 cell that produces just like yours. Thanks for your interest in my post, I like to help people as best I can. You have a very nice cell from what I can tell, thanks for telling me about the washing machine, I am going to the dump soon to look around.
    MY BEST advice is to grind down each plate and then try it, if that doesn't work I guess I may have to ask for a video of the whole thing.

    Before you race out to the Tip fridge & washing machine repair shops out in Industrial areas often have them out the back and can be picked up even cheaper then the Tip! That's where i got mine and a couple of fridges (for smoke house, hot water storage and heat duct encapsulation insulation, food dehydrator. The radiator will make an excellent cooler for a cell but i haven't got that far yet.

    I'm not sure on how to test conductivity of the plates? but will try the grinding of them soon. Goal is to use this in a shipping container unit as cooking and who knows it may run a Sterling engine or something but the goal is to use 12 Volt regular car batteries or a 12 Volt source and least expense as possible.

    I don't recommend using the salt as i immediately noticed rust appear across the entire plate surface and the water turned black from the black die in the gaskets. Not sure what the gaskets are made of but some sort of rubber. Just using Soda for now to test as it's cheap but not sure of where the other stuff is.

    I have a heap of batteries i got from the Tip that are still good and have 5 connected up in series on 12Volt DC i think that would have increased the AMPS they are 12V x 36 AMP Hr batteries each so i will try that connected next. But first will grind each plate.

    Thanks for your ideas and reply and helping! How is a 'ground' plate make effective?
