In this instructable I will show you how to do the correct wiring for the Nitric acid reactor shown in the video above
Step 1: Watch the Video
In the video you will get a general overview about the project and how it goes.
Step 2: The Wiring of the The CFL to the The Transformer
1- First you must Identify the windings on your flyback transformer , the easiest thing to do is to check the circuit board of your TV if it has any marking , or perhaps google any writings on the transformer itself .... It that is a not an option, there is a load of videos online showing how to Identify the primary and secondary on a flyback transformer like this one :
Step 3: AC Mains to CFL Ballast
Connect the AC plug to the CFL ballast circuit as shown and place screw-on terminals to 8the output of the ballast
Step 4: CFL Ballast Output to Flyback
The long black wires coming out of the ballast should hook up to the primary of the flyback transformer ( the polarity doesn't matter )
Step 5: Attaching the Ground Wire and Final Preparations
Attach the ground wire to the ground pin and you are good to go and create arcs !
Step 6: The Reactor in Working Order
This is showing the reactor after assembling everything together
