Plate cell construction tips

(1/3) > >>

The turtle has built three differing plate cell configurations, the difference found in the means of attaching and spacing plates.

As time goes on I will post those specific projects in detail to share the plus and minus qualites of each.

For now, drop by the photobucket


to see what's there.   I ain't got the bucket organised the way it needs, but that too, in time.

If anyone has a spare clock to send me, I've found something better than anti-depressants...

Take said ticking clock (it needs to be a working clock), place on an anvil, and swing a 12 pound sledge with vociferous determination, aiming for the center...


Man, I feel better already!

Timeless Turtle

Thats a very helpfull tip, my friend Turtle.... ;D

Keep on crushing the time!

Another plate cell design has emerged from the pond muck.

Acrylic slab sides, 61 plates 3" x 3" 24 ga 304 SS with the end plates a little taller for the only two connectors.

The plates got stacked in a fixture with 1/8" balsa wood in between each one, and the sides got treated with a combination of GOOP marine down the bulk of the center, and FUSOR brand structural sheet metal epoxy along the top and bottom.  Slap on the sides and let 'er cure.

The whole thing is ~9" long, and I'm jes finishing up a containment vessel that will facilitate circulation of electrolyte, as well as provide a modicum of flash-back protection.   Still gotta test it.

Driving it with 120VDC [rectified wall mains], not over 15 amps for now.

Turtle, still building

I’m in the process of constructing my plate cells with an arrangement of +nn-nn+ a total of 70 plates


Just a question. Why do you use 2 neutral plates? Did you run tests on how many are the right choice?
I am very curious about this, because I have tested neutral tubes in the past.
I also wanna make a plate cell.
What size plates do you advise?
