I recently made an hho generator, when i turned it on it started to release something green in the water what is that?? I used water and salt.

I just made mine by aluminum (because I don't have any stainless steel). Then I realize I can't choose a conductor (normally, they used NaOH or KOH but I can't, because they react with aluminum). And when I use salt, a thick gooey grey layer appear. What I should use or how can I prevent this layer forming?

I am not sure how or where to hook the generator into a car, and I have also heard that it is important to use a pulse generator into the unit to control power flow does anyone know where I can find more detailed concerning the installation into an engine, as well as information on how to build, or buy a pulse generator?

Hello Everyone, I recently found out about Sodium Hydroxide as an electrolyte. I have read that it does not affect the electrodes like salt or baking soda and it does not create any weird gasses like chlorine. The main reason for using stainless steel electrodes is to prevent this corrosion, but since sodium hydroxide does not create this corrosion, can I just use the much cheaper iron or regular steel as the electrode plates? Thanks in advance

I'm keen on starting a serious discussion group of folks who share my enthusiasm for HHO alternative fuel generators. Thus far there's only been one Instructable (Serge) and loads of YouTube videos, but most other sites either want to sell you plans or sell you a retail device. I'd like to start a club of sorts with folks who want to 'roll their own' but perhaps lack some of the electronics or other material fabrication techniques. We could help each other design & build stuff (like an hho generator for you car) and then post the how-to's here on Instructables. Anybody interested?

Does anyone know how to test for output quantity of HHO gas from a Hydrogen Generator when connected to a vacuum such as your intake manifold? The output is easy to test when just checking with a submerged bottle with the generator running on its own without being hooked to a vacuum source. The generator will put out substantially more volume under vacuum than when not. How do you check for output volume when under vacuum? Pylgram

One of my friends asked for my help for a project for his school expo. He wants to run a car on water and I have told him not to be too optimistic. when I googled it all I found was that it was not possible(as of now), but no other detail. I did stumble upon an old episode of myth busters in which they came to the conclusion that a car can run on hydrogen, but they were unable to provide enough hydrogen from their electrolysis setup, however, I noticed that the HHO generator created by king of random produces way more gas then theirs. so I wanted to know your opinion and knowledge on this matter and whether this can work or not.

I've built a hho generator (the spiral electrodes kind) and am trying to use it as a welder i use salt as my electrolyte (should i use something else???) THE PROBLEM IS THAT WHILE I DO GET A CONSTANT FLAME, I DON'T GET A BIG ENOUGH FLAME (it melts metal but it takes ages to do so) does anyone know of a way how i could get more amps to speed up gas production or of any way i could get more preasure (+maybe my gas isn't pure enough because i use salt as an electrolyte, could that be it?)

I know someone who is considering adding an hho (hydrogen generator) system to their car. however, their concern is that the system will wear out the engine faster than normal, and therefore cancell out all of the savings. would the engine be affected negatively by the higher temperature and pressures, etc?
Question by biolethal | last reply
Reproduced verbatim from The Fortean Times issue 249, republishing from FT35JUNE 1979On the 15th a demonstration of a "revolutionary" energy device took place at an undisclosed location in the UK. Iowerth Thomas, 58 a Welsh inventor, hoped to interest both government energy officials and an Arab consortium. Mr Thomas had been experimenting since 1936 with ways to make petrol engines burn more efficiently. His "bolt-on" device promised between 25 and 40 per cent efficiency using "the electrolysis of tap water", plus a cleaner exhaust. The government scientists' response - that it was impossible - spurred Mr Thomas to demonstrate it for them. He reported to the motoring correspondent of the Daily Telegraph that his stationary engine ran for 112 seconds with his device and for 77 seconds on the same amount of petrol without it. The usual objection to electrolytic systems is that the energy needed to run them is greater than that produced. With some sarcasm, New Scientist sniffed that the device needed to be much smaller than the room-size contraption Jones used. What really stoked their scorn was Thomas's reply when asked how it worked: "It's beyond me," he said. That was the last we heard of him and his promising device.How has this technology improved in the last 30 years?L

Hi all, I've been wanting to build a simple hydroxy generator for using it as a torch. I've seen about 500 gazillion tutorials and alot of them talk abour having 3-5 neutral plates between each positive and negative plate. What is the point of this? Isn't it better to have all plates connected as electrodes? Also, what's the difference between having 5 neutral plates between positive and negative plate, and just having the positive and negative plates installed farther apart (same distance as if you had the neutrals between them)? Thanks!

I've seen and built HHO generators before, and have been able to build a rig that produced a flame big enough for welding... before it fell apart. But I'm having trouble with the funds and time to get thinking and do some real engineering. To put it simply i've hit a brick wall with this idea and i thought Instuctables.com might be a good place to discuss my problems and get other people thinking too. my plan was to create a wet cell hydroxy generator with hard drive platter, why hard drive platters? because they are plated in platinum.... the best substance known to man for electrolysis. I just want sombody to share my ideas with that wont say somthing like " uhhh what's a hard drive?". Please help, I'd love to get info and opinions from sombody other than google once in a while.

Question by LiquidLightning | last reply
Is it possible to take a 12V lead acid battery, remove the acid from all 6 cells and replace with water and connect to a 12V power source, and get H2 and O2 gasses bubbling out the top? The reasoning behind this question is that the 12 volt lead acid batteries are made of 6 cells, each producing about 2 volts, connected in series. If instead of producing 12V we could (by removing the acid and replacing with salt water) feed it 12V, wouldn't we have 6 hydrolysis cells running at 2V each? 6 cells of 2V hydrolysis cells is nothing new, but has anyone of you ever tried to convert a lead acid battery before? Is the lead going to be any good as electrodes? Will the lead oxidize too fast? Will the there be any chemical reaction that would change the produced gasses? Should I be worried about lead poisoning for even typing these words? Should I be asking anything else I haven't thought about? Thanks!

I have an electrode made of 304 SS that when hooked to a 12V automotive battery draws about 80A. That is WAY too much amps, and I want to boost the output voltage to 36 or more, and reduce the amps as low as possible. I plan to drive the flyback with a square wave generator. What do I need to know to wind my own coil: what core, size of wire for primary and secondary and how many turns of each? Thanks in advance. I've already found that an ignition coil will not work, unless you know of some way to adapt one so that it will.
Question by galveston | last reply
I saw an article today on how HHO generators are just a scam. There are of course many scams associated with it, but I have yet to test the whole thing myself so I have yet to form a solid opinion on the whole thing. One of the biggest arguments is that based on the laws of thermodynamics, the same energy is required to split the water as is released when they recombine. This is true, but couldn't there be other benefits to the whole thing which are being ignored. If that statement was true wouldn't eco-boost engines be a scam. The turbocharger can't just create energy can it. The exhaust which spins up the turbo causes back pressure on the engine right. Then there are friction and slip as well. It seems very lossy right, but it works. It isn't a scam. The same goes for a supercharger, the same energy of the added compressed air is taken from the engines drive train. Now I understand that the compressed air causes a better burn similar to mixing KNO3 with sugar vs just burning it in plain air. But what if you mix gunpowder and sugar, why is that any different. I feel like this analogy accurately displays what is going on in both cases, and I feel like there could be an argument for the benefits of HHO. Again I have no experience in the subject yet, but it all seems reasonable. The HHO isn't being used as a fuel, it is being used as a booster which pulls more energy, more efficiently from the petrol.

For something I am in the process of designing, I need a valve that can be connected to a high pressure source and will allow the gas from the high pressure side to to flow into a sealed container on the other side until a pre-set pressure is reached. It should then shut off. The system used to do this should also be able to handle a very high pressure spike (possibly even the type of compressed pressure wave generated during a super-sonic combustion / detonation) on the sealed container side. If you can provide a diagram or the name of a type of valve or even just a description of how this could be done it would be appreciated. No computer controlled stuff please. ##################### The answer I have discovered is to use a regular diaphragm-type pressure regulator. ######################

I need a relatively simple way to produce a few milliliters of dry H2 gas. I do NOT want HHO and I do NOT want electrolysis of water, I also would like this method to produce little to no water as a byproduct. I'm looking for generators because the minimum tank size of hydrogen I could buy (unless someone could locate a supplier in the UK that would sell me something the size of a propane tank or smaller) is far too large. I'm Interested in a chemical reaction or hydrocarbon cracking method that would require a maximum of 200 degrees C if it requires energy input, but I don't mind if it's terribly exothermic (unless its an thermite-like reaction, then we have a problem) since I have a very effective cooling system in place for it and the rest of the system. I forgot to add what its for, glow brazing. It'll be ionized and remove surface oxides while simultaneously heating the parts to be brazed.

This could explain a lot. (From RichardDawkins.net via Slashdot )Apparently, the course on "Intelligent Design and Christian Apologetics" at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary has, as a requirement worth 20% of the final grade, "(4) provide at least 10 posts defending ID that you've made on "hostile" websites, the posts totalling 3,000 words, along with the URLs (i.e., web links) to each post (worth 20% of your grade)."The next time I see a lengthy, ad-hominem-laden, scientifically dubious argument for Intelligent Design on this site I'm going to wonder whether it is a college student fulfilling course requirements by trolling. I notice that reading the replies to your 3,000 words of propaganda isn't required. Now we just have to find whoever it is offering photocopies of Tesla's secret notebooks and plans for perpetual motion machines if you post enough stuff supporting overunity HHO generators.Note to those so inclined: this is not flamebait, I'm reporting a piece of news relevant to this community (because of our semi-regular flamewars debates about ID etc.). Flames will be reported as spam and subsequently ignored. Intelligent Discussion will be welcomed.
