Only half LPM, 18 amps
I am trying to get some good out put with the smack design. I have 10 plate 2+ on one end and 2- on the other, the others are N. They are 2 1/2inchs by 4 1/4 inches. 1 gallon of mixture in 4inch pvc, after 5 minutes goes from 10 amps to 18 amps and still only half a LPM. Any idea how I can get more output per min, with out going to dry cell. The smack design can work just need help tweeking. Does it help to punch the cell plates? I did not do that there just 316 ss. Is one LPM what is needed to put in a four cylinder. Or is 1 L every two good.
Correction on some of that. I get half a liter per minute. then I tryed it with out my bubbler, witch is 1/4 tube to 3/4 pvc,1 foot long 1/2 filled with water. I put the 1/4 tube into a liter bottle upside down with the head just in the water, so very little restriction. I got great result at 16 amp it emptyed the 1 liter bootle in 1 minute. Does any one know what could be wrong with my bubbler. Why is it restricting my hho from comming out.

Check valve?

Leaks?

Did you wrap it?

I have a check valve in it. There are no leaks I can pressurize it and it holds. I did not rap the cell with shrink rap yet. It produces great bubble as long as it does not have to work against water too.

Maybe your check valve is too restrictive.

I put the check valve onto the main houseing into it own hole. That way when the gas contracts or any thing it pulls outside air in, while keeping a pressure when hho is beening made.

So it lets air in, but not out.

At this point you need to recheck everything. Looks like you're overlooking something.

Could my plates need something else. Does dimpling them with a punch help the bubbles fall off, or should I sand then. Do I really need 1 lpm for it to work or can a little less work fine.

I'd suspect miswiring, spacing or shorting before sanding or dimpling.
