what are you making a sealed cell or a submerged cell

Hmmm, i am not sure yet what to do...i will start with just some gaskets at both ends and in the middle.
Them middle is needed because of the 0.5mm gap....

Ok,

I got my 50 plates. Its weight only is incredible!
I sandpaperd 10 of them and made some gaskets.
The material of the plates are looking fantastic! It might be 316 in stead of 304!
Absolutely nice stuff! Very happy with it..and i have 50 of them...man i should start building a zeppelin like the Hindenburg . I will make so much hydrogen......

Ok,
Back to reality.
First test.
10 plates
0.5mm gap
+nnnnnnnn-
50v unregulated DC
4 amps

Water stayd clear....strange..no orange stuff, yet

Go have a look at this most simple setup.
1 variac with bridge rectifier
No coils of anything.

hrmmm if you add one more plate your voltage is still not going to go up enough, and amps still not gonna drop enough, TRY 13 or 14 neutrals for higher volts lower amps.

Then again, thats only 206.5 watts, this makes me wonder what your production is with your gas stevie, hrmmm,,, i must know...

Does a small gap mean more efficiency? now would be the time to note this down....
My wild guess is 175 cc's per min...

Also, your plate cell is long, i wonder if you get the bottom off the ground if it changes the production or wattage any at all... mine is on the ground but not long like yours.

Yeh,

When i add more plates, i can go up in voltage.
Tomorrow i will sandpaper another 10 pieces
See what that will bring

My vid is bad on youtube. In real life it much better!

Add: I added my video as attachement  in my previous message. The quality is much better then on youtube!
It was not possible till now, because of a small error on the webserver. Its fixed now. I also increased attachement size.

hi stevie,

does your variac allow you to push a higher voltage while keeping the amps low ?
reason i ask is although you are putting 5.6v across each cell your resistance is very high, 12.75, or 1.4 per cell.
series plate cell designs usualy achieve about 0.2 ohms each cell. or spikes series tube cell 0.1875 ohms.

i would guess that your current production of gas to be:...........4a x 9 cells = 273cc / min

br
james.

That i get higher voltage is possible because of the lack of chemicals in my water.
I run tapwater strait on. No KOH or whatever.
That means that conduction is not low till dead short. There is a need for higher volts because of that and so ohms are raising as well.

I did a gasoutput test, but my casing is fouling me. Its a soft plastic casing and when pressure come, the casing flexes.....
I am making a hard case now. See what that will bring

420cc output into a torch!
