Hey Guys, a question. I am making an HHO generator. I have been advised on several types of electrolyte. Baking soda, caustic soda and sulphuric acid diluted 5:1.
Advice please
Stay away from baking soda; it produces CO2, the same flame retardant that is in fire extinguishers; NaOH or KOH will work but don't spill it on anything aluminum and make sure you've got a double bubbler, or put some vinegar in your bubbler to neutralize any Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) or Potassium hydroxide (KOH) coming out of your generator. Sulphuric acid is a poor producer. I've had luck with citric acid and HTC Metal Stain Remover (sold at Wal-Mart in the swimming pool chemicals section).
Thanks Tom,
OK I will put vinegar in my bubbler. Sodium Hydroxide, Is that Caustic Soda ??
I live in Queensland Australia, out in the bush. So no wall marts here.

Caustic soda usually is NaOH, however to be sure sodium hydroxide is usually called "lye".

RE: RVS treatment
Thanks again Thom.
"LYE " is that the same stuff, as old soap was made of. It came in blocks lye soap ???
I am hopping to get a flow meter, so I will know exactly how much HHO I am making. To compensate for the lack of vacuum. I thought I might pressurize the tank with compressed air
when bench testing. I have adjustable reducing valves. We use to spray cars. Also considering a pressure release system, using a funnel with a conical weight in it. Fit a schrader valve in it, set the pressure to say 50 PSI. By adjusting the weight of the cone. The old MIGs had a flow meter, our new MIG does not.

Llew:

Yes, it's the same stuff soap is made of, however, don't use the commercial grade, it's 75% NaOH and 25% Nacl. Hope you have "RED Devil" lye or "Roebic" drain cleaner. Look in hardware stores for drain cleaners; read the ingredients; if it just says sodium hydroxide you're probably safe. It comes in powdered form, sticks, and the commercial brick (to be avoided). What's your weather like now in the "bush".

RE: RVS treatment
Thanks Tom,
Its winter now and during the day its perfect weather. Gets cold at night
Should get the rest of my material this week. One of the guys reckons I should have half of my plates neutral, to reduce the voltage to about 2.5 volts across the plate stack. Instead of about 13 volts strait of the battery. What do you think, I would have thought the more voltage the better. One guy is running 110 volts ac using an inverter. Of course he would have very little in the way of amps. I would think.

Llew:

anything over 2.5 volts is wasted as heat; peak electrolysis occurs at about 2 to 2.5 volts.

http://www.rvs-tec.com/English/index.htm

Manufacturer says it dramatically lowers friction, increases engine life and makes engine run easier, smoother.

I've read many customer reviews about this thing, and most of them are satisfied. Haven't tried myself, though. I'm going to try this on my cars transmission.

Comments, please.

I'm in the middle of trying these stuff out. (the US distributors version of it) I got it in 2 vans. I put it in last Saturday 10-03-09
I have to say my compression appears to be up over 5 PSI per cylinder in 7 days. So far so good.

I plain on recording the progress over the next 3 months.

As far as MPG, really not enough time to have solid info. My MPG is up in my big van but not enough testing yet. My wife MPG are down a little ( she does not no about the testing I'm doing, i guess shes my " blind tester') anyway the increase in compression has me a bit optimistic.

An english version about that ford escort test i spoke about.

Not interested in debating about this anymore, just sharing info.

RE: RVS treatment
Hi, this is hard to belive. " Molly Slip " is the only thing that worked for me. Mollyblem deham is its cemical name, I doubt I have the rite spelling !!! :-). But don't put it auto trans, the bands will slip. I am presentley using Proma in my engine, because the idle oil pressure is low. There are no rattles or knocks in my engine. Jaguar XJ6. Oh I am a retired pro machanic.

RE: RVS treatment
I have a '96 volvo 850, 240 000kms. just bought RVS treatment and flush. Waiting for my shipment. I am nervous from all the things you have been talking about, but my engine is old and I figure the risk is OK. I should have my second vehicle ready for the road soon, so if I screw my engine, I can survive.

I will do a compression test before flush, after flush, and during treatment, maybe a weekly basis, depending on how i feel. I am nervous about the flush as I have lots o sludge in my car....we will see.

it is expensive....i spent 178$ cdn on it.....ouch, considering i cna get an old motor for 500. Hopefully this works out and saves me the hassle of doing a swap.

wish me luck.
