Brown's Gas Discussion:
This forum is for discussion of Brown's Gas. For those that don't know, Brown's Gas is 2 parts hydrogen gas, and one part oxygen gas (by volume). Because it has has the same elements and in the same proportions as water vapor, and because it is composed of Oxygen and Hydrogen, it is often not clearly understood what makes Brown's gas different from what you might buy from commercial suppliers of industrial gas (for instance).
Ordinary hydrogen and oxygen gas, when purchased commercially, or when produced by electrolysis by ordinary electrolyzers, comes in the form of 02 and H2. That is the molecules of both gases form molecules of 2 atoms each. This is a more stable state for these gases than when individual atoms are separate as molecules of one atom each.
The problem with H2 and 02 as a combustible gas, is that before they can react together to make H2O, they must first be broken apart into separate H and O atoms. The energy required to do this is a large fraction of the energy you get back when they combine to make H2O.
What makes Brown's gas unique, and much more valuable to us, is that the hydrogen and oxygen have not formed into H2 and 02 molecules. They are in their monatomic (one atom per molecule) state. In this state, more energy will be returned when the hydrogen burns (combines with oxygen). More importantly, monatomic hydrogen makes a superior catalyst for breaking down and burning other fuels, such as petroleum based fuels.
This forum is for the discussion of the use of electrolyzers, oxygen, hydrogen and most importantly Brown's gas as described above.
