Which type of electrode? Rods, spirals, plates, perforated plates?
Which type of electrode works best for you (draws less ampers at the same rate of HHO-production):

- The simple rods?
- Water4Gas' spirals?
- Square shaped plates?
- Circle shaped plates?
- Perforated plates of any shape?
- Other designs?

What counts more:

-The size of the surface?
-The shape of the electrode?
-The number of edges on the electrode? (I have read somewhere that the edges, where the most of the gas is forming. So, more the edges on the electrode, the more the HHO-gas is forming. Is that true?)

What are your observations? What the pros are saying about this?

Square plates work best for me. And I've tried spiral, plates, and bolts. It'd be interesting to see a gen with all three. Wink

Wait a sec... I have 138 posts and I'm simply just "member".. yet this dude above me has 6 posts and is a gass guzzler and some other person on here has something like 40 something posts and and is a supermod. what gives??? Laugh (don't take me too seriously.. but I am actually curious).

RE: Which type of electrode? Rods, spirals, plates, perforated plates?
can ask more about ur plates? I made a 8 plater from wall plates but looking to build something better. how think are ur plates and how far apart. I got a 2 plate but not doing much. I got the 2 so close I used a small strips of milk jug to keep them from touching. plated are .063 2x4x24
Thanks

Yes, please describe your electrode designs here. How many electrodes, what is the distance between them, shape, surface, what amount of water is surrounding it etc.

Yeah, I'm a Gas Guzzler, since I don't have a working HHO-system in my car yet. I'm just experimenting now. When I have a finished install and that one is working, I'll be Gas Saver... Smile

Has anyone used SS cable instead of wire twisted together? I built one using SS single strand wire (Picture frame type) and twisted two together with a drill and found it very hard to weave through a tower made from Plexiglas with holes drilled in it about 3/16 apart. The SS cable was very easy. I don't know what grade it is but it was free.

I have made a double helix spiral from 0.08" welding electrode. Huh, that's hard to working with! But I won the fight, it has got the spiral form finally. I also got some vesicles on my hand. Smile
It was a small electrolyzer, half a quart water, 1/8 teaspoon baking soda and this double helix. It produced 0.25 liter HHO per minute. But it heated up and the ampers went up also within 30 minutes. So, the single "cell" design is not the one I'm dreaming of. I'll experiment with a 9 or 10 cell of sealed plates.

My answer to the topic title...

#1 whatever gives you the most surface area
#2 whatever fits your enclosure the best to achieve #1

My first one used 304 SS fine mesh screens rolled into tubes and spot welded. It was pretty effective for a single parallel model. Current model I'm working on will use flat SS plates most likely, maybe perforated plate, still crunching some numbers. Working on a 7 series cell, single container, separate cell chambers within main container.

RE: Which type of electrode? Rods, spirals, plates, perforated plates?
. I tested my wire set up, I found that you have to run it for a while before it gets going. The water temp got up to about 100deg. @ .53 amps. I built this one with extra wrap of negative wire wrapped around the exterior of the tower or what ever it is called. I probably used about 8ft total of wire. There wasn't a abundance of gas, but steady. I will test the cable set up next. I'm going to build one with 2 sets but would like to know if it would be better to have a single positive wrap on the inside and a negative wrap on the outside, or positive/neg inside and pos/neg on the outside.
Thinking surface area, any thoughts?
How much gas is enough to make a difference?
