RE: Ignition pressure of HHO
I'm brand new here. This is my first post, lol. I'm looking to build an electrolizer that keeps the hydrogen separate from the oxygen and store it for use as a cooking burner fuel. I won't go into the electrolizer portion, because my question pertains to storage.
My idea is to build a barrel in barrel system where the outer barrel is full of water and the inner barrel is upside down inside of it. As hydrogen is generated, it displaces water inside the inner barrel, lifting it up against weights to create low pressure storage.
My questions are, how much weight will I need to add to a standard 55 gallon plastic drum to create 10-15 psi? Surface area is about 20 square inches, so I'm thinking 200-315lbs. Multiple square inches by pressure and get PSI?! I will be adding a gauge to check it.
Second question is, how high in the air do you think the plastic barrel will fly if the hydrogen ignites, lol. Seriously though, how safe would this be assuming I am storing only the hydrogen?
