Anyone Else Having Steam Issues?
Every single hho cell that i have built minus the one that seperates the oxygen and hydrogen produce a lot of steam after 20-30 minutes. Amps or in the 15-20 amp range hot. I have tried the different electolyte mixes and all have the same results.

you need to use a pwm if you use straight dc current will heat up everytime go to hydrogen garage.com around 28$ you build it your self easy instruction also you might beed to know the basic of hho and whats happening go to eagles-research.com buy book called browns gas book 1 a must have when i first stared building my gen had the same problems now ive built one 3 series cells with no heat or steam pwm works

Hydrodine, what's your plate design? Do you have any neutral plates in the middle (not connected to + or -)?

I built the x cell that byte312 has. Similar to what Wulfram is using. It is 2 plates and each one is bent 90 degrees to form the X with about 1/2" between the closest point in the middle.

If you add neutral plates between the + and - , it'll drop the voltage and heat down.

Something like this (- N N N + N N N -) would run cooler.

Positive in the middle and two negative plates and neutral plates (no connection) in the middle.

With brute force electrolysis it is very difficult to keep the generator from overheating unless a pwm is used (already mentioned). On the other hand, a true series cell design where each cell gets about 2 volts, in its own separate bath of electrolyte, is much more efficient. It will produce more gas at less amps, and it should create very little heating. The issue with a true series cell is space.
