FOAM IN BUBBLER
Hey everyone,


I just finished building a 6 plate dry cell, and I'm getting 2 lpm at 20 amps. Great production but every time the cell is on for any length of time I get foam in my resevior and bubbler. I am using sodium hydroxide and distilled water so I'm not sure what could be causing this. Any ideas...Confused

Welcome to the forum!!
Six plates at 20 amps are you also making steam along with the HHO?
Is your fluid level dropping ?
Did you condition the cell yet?

No I don't believe so, there's only 2vdc per plate so that shouldnt be making any steam. And yes I conditioned the plates and rinsed them in clean distilled water when done. Thanks

RE: FOAM IN BUBBLER
The foam can be the result of body grease from fingers that has been left on the plates. Once fat molecules caught in electrolysis, they turn into soap... So you're blowin bubbles.

On a new cell it does take a while to break it in. Even with high grade steel, Iron will leak out of the SS for several hours of use. You will need to change the water often at first.Also you can reduce some of the foaming by adding a little back pressure.May a 1 or 2 lb check.I know of one using a cigarette filter for this.
