Anyone need a box for a cell? Maybe zipstor.
I have one of our prototype boxes for sale.Aluminum,22" high,14" deep and 17"wide with hinged lid.Includes shelf and instrument panel,cell mounts in base,two Flambeau 6 quart tanks,one for circulation and other set up as bubbler.12volt extractor fan for cooling.Asking way under cost at $150.00. Also will provide surface mount,snap disc thermostat so you can wire the fan to cycle on at 120f and off at 105f.Files too large to post so if interested ask me for pix.Ideal enclosure for larger cells.

You do know that the combination of Aluminium (aluminum) and sodium hydroxide will result in a very violent reaction, sometimes known as WHOOSH!!!, usually followed by a few choice expletives (Swear words).

The other side of the coin is that there are of course benefits. You can produce hydrogen, lots of it, with no electrolysis required.


Stainless steel would have been IMHO a better choice for construction material.

And what can happen when aluminium falls into the wrong hands.

Being British I recognise the correct spelling of aluminium and understand the meaning of an expletive.Please stop trying to be so superior.Whilst I live in the US it seems from the time difference on your posts you are still in the UK.
Notice I used the word 'prototype'. The first was wood,the second and third Al. and the production boxes will be SS. My cells don't leak but if there are concerns of a reaction then it's easy enough to coat the interior with rhino liner or epoxy.

If I came across as trying to be superior then I apologise. That is/was never my intention in any post on this forum. Yes, I do live in the UK. In this case, I merely wanted to point out the pitfalls of using aluminium where NaOH, or in fact, any acid or alkali, was concerned.
OK on your cells not leaking, but there is always the potential for leakage from a number of other sources, including bubbler, reservoir, hoses, connectors, or from spillage during topping up of the system.
Even a minor leak has the potential to cause a lot of damage.

RE: Anyone need a box for a cell? Maybe zipstor.
Thanks for that mate, yeh show us some pics. I'm more in a state of mind of NOT using a box because it will make the production costs to raise consequently. I'm going to design a cradle, a bit like for a geny.. But yeah why not, show us what you got!
