Specific Gravity of HHO or Hydroxyl?
« on: February 19, 2010, 03:29:06 am »
Hi group,

Trying to help a friend help a company come up with a way to measure LPM of HHO or Hydroxyl right out of a cell.
Seems like there is plenty interest in a metering device in this group class of gas.
He bases his stuff on KOH and distilled but I'm thinking it still will be pretty near the same specifics in all cases of water to gas by any electrolyte and types of water, spring, tap, rain, snow.
The combination of ortho and para hydrogen along with the various combinations of the oxygen molecule will basically be averaged anyway.

They are asking for a specific gravity of the gas.
So if anyone has some good input on the specific gravity then maybe soon a better form of measurement device will be made.

One approach, slightly different, would be to buy a flow meter used with other types of gasses, such as argon, and then re-calibrate it for Hydrogen and Oxygen.

Another method, for really high gas production, (resonant action type awesomeness), would be to have a water level indicator integrated into the cell, but isolated for the disturbance of the rising gases, and then have a tall thin tube on the cell so you could actually watch the water level drop as gas is produced. Then factor it 1:1800 or what ever it is exactly, to get your measurements.

When it comes right down to it in a real system, it doesn't matter, all that matters is that you "have enough" and then can adjust the production accurate to satisfy demand.

I've heard a couple of times now that Dwyer meters makes one just for hydroxy.Never looked into though.

The company were trying to share this information with is Dwyer.

According to my budddy they don't make one for browns gas.
They plan on making one thats affordable in the $100 range, designed with specific materials and tempurature ranges because of the heating when using chemicals.

Just that specific gravity thing.
Any numbers from anyone they have heard about or seen posted somewhere.?
