7 Dollar Fuel cell container
« on: July 24, 2008, 04:21:56 am »
Hello, We have to make our own containers and it's a hassle and very time consuming! many of us just want to build a cell and stick it down in a box capable of holding a few pounds of pressure without leaking, If you feel you can provide this website with a source of such a container then feel free to advertise a container here!

Please realize many people buy Polycarbonate part by part and screw, clue tack, whatever they can do to get it to work, thats lots of work and alot of time the containers always leak, its aggravating. So to anyone that thinks they can provide a container capable of holding fuel cells that comes with outgoing hydrogen lines and battery terminal lines that does not leak, i think youd sell lots of them here!!!!! i know i would pay for a container, the only one i have found is in the photos, and it needs work, but it is very nice, and all it requires is leak free connections, real rubber seal and hydroxy output hose.

 I can tell you what to seal the connections to the box with.   Any Marine store will sell you a tube of 5200. Some hardware stores may even have it.

  You will need to sand off the slick finish on your container, unless you use glass  ::) ::)

  Then wipe it clean with Alcohol or brake cleaner.

  Apply the 5200 around both sides of the container, and install the fitting. Tighten snugly, but, don't try to wring out the last little bit of 5200.  Wipe off everything in sight with Mineral Spirits.

  Trust me. You will have this stuff in places you never thought you went to, after using it.  ::) ::) :o

  Once dried, 24 hours or so, you have a strong, flexible connection, that CAN be removed with a hardback razor blade, IF you are careful.   

  This stuff is used to seal leaks on boats while the boat is IN the fresh or salt water. IT WORKS.

  DO NOT get the fast dry.  5200 in White or Black, whatever fits yer color scheme.   ::) ;D ;D ;D ;D

  ALSO, have y'all ever seen Battery Promo boxes ???  Y'all know what I'm talkin about. It's simply a Lead acid  Battery box, used in Displays.  Comes with compartments and the top comes off. Posts are molded  with the top. Just drill and mount the leads.

  They come snapped together, or partly glued.  I have one, somewhere in Fl, IF my Son hasn't cleaned out the warehouse and trashed it ???  ::) ::) ::)  Call or stop by your local battery shop, and see if they can getcha one ???

  Battery cases will hold some pressure, especially with brackets and 5200.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
