I built a wfc, bought a dc gated pulse generator ala dave lawton, added distilled water and got pretty much nothing.  I next bought a dimmer switch (poor boy's variac) hooked to a fwbr with floating ground and got bubbles and heat.  Burned out 2 dimmer switches and for giggles hooked up 12 volts dc straight to the wfc wired parallel and got not as much bubbles but less heat.  Water bath is about 2 degrees F above ambient.

Construction:

7 - 5/16 inch 316L allthread rod cut to length
7 - 1/2 inch od 0.035 wall T304 pipe 100 mm approx 4 inches in length
42 - zip ties superglued 120 degrees as spacers gap approx 1.5 mm
hardware ss nuts, washers and hose clamps for electrical connections
hoseclamps attached approx 0.25 mm from bottom
silver plated copper wire seems to hold up in the water bath wired as per figure 2 in the patent

With tap water it seems no problem producing bubbles and steam at 12 vdc unrectified.  Puzzled and surprised...

Alan:
put the dimmer on the negative and see what happens

handyandy:
tried both ways and same results.  burnt out 2 dimmer switches.  hooked up straight 12vdc and got gas also.  am increasing number of tubes by 6 and going to modify an inverter to see how it handles half rectified ac as in the patent.  with straight dc temp rose 2-5 degrees F.  with dimmer switch temp rose more depending on voltage 100F+

Regards and thanks,
Andy

handyandy:
I attached a short video dissociation of distilled water 12 volts dc ambient temperature rise 2-5 degrees F.  Am adding more "wave guides" and have an inverter to hack and test with half rectification.

Andy

Nice video Andy. Production seems very little.
How much mA does the circuit pull here?
