Another Dry Cell Project
Yo everybody, I need Help!! I've just made a dry cell and it's not puking HHO like it should.... It's a 6x6 36 plates 316Lgrade spaced by between 1/16 and 1/8 of an inch. The power setup is +nnnn- . I cant seem to get over 4 or 5 amps at 12volt. I've conditionned the plate for 2 nights at 3 to 4 amp, the water stays clear now. But I do not have any significant HHO production.
On a previous model I made I had about 2lpm at 15 amp, 16volt, I tought this one was going to be even more efficient but it seems not....

There is one things I suspect, I did not sand or crosshatch the plates. Could it be only this?

With that plate setup, you should be able to boil water. I don't think not sanding the plates could stop it, Like asked before, what are you using for electrolyte?

RE: Another Dry Cell Project
Yo, I've just found out what was the problem with the cell...The gasket i've used were a little bit oily, tought I've washed them there were still traces of oil which turned immediatly to soap in touch of the KOH.... this produced lots of foam between the plate and dropped the amp, slowed the production, and bla bla bla....

so conclusion your plate and gasket should alway be free of any oily substance even in trace...

I put mine in the washing machine and used gloves after to handle them. squeaky clean.

Do you mean dishwasher? I was wondering, you guys that use the dishwasher; do you use soap or just the hot water.
