tube cell 1.0
« on: January 08, 2011, 18:08:58 pm »
my tube cell is pretty simple. The ouside of the outer tube is powder coated, the inside of the inside tubes are capped. The cell doesn't have spacers between the tubes; I simple used some 3/4" pvc male addapter and drilled some holes in it to let water in and gasses out. I can get high voltage across the cell whens its not underwater(300volts) The next thing to try is to apply high voltage when the cell is under water. I'll post back with the results  :)

Hi Dave,


Looks good!
So, you hit it with the ignition coils?

hello steve
yes i've been trying an modified ignition coil with little success. I haven't been able to get more then a few volts across the cell when it is in water.

thanks Steve, i havent had time to read through all the info on this forum yet. Tonys 8XA replication looks promising, i think ill try to build my own in a few weeks when i'm home from school again.

I'm tired of just throwing this cell in a bucket of water so i'm going to try to design something to put it in. Hopefully something that can withstand some pressure.
I'm also going to insulate the exposed parts and wires with high voltage red varnish, i just bought a case of 12 cans. I need to find more things to insulate haha

Good idea...


i would no go for a closed cell, if it works suddenly it can explode... be careful

yeah sounds like a bomb right haha
I'm designing the end caps to pop off if something like that happens. I'm not planning on putting it under pressure any time soon, and if I do I wont be anywhere near it!
 
heres a picture of the cell. just about ready to be dropped into the housing.
