replacement for SS plates
Does anyone know if there is a replacement for the stainless steel plates. Every forum I have read has the constant complaint of eventual erosion and discoloration.

Titanium has VERY poor conductivity.

There are many grades of SS you have to just use a good one 316 or better yet 316L will hold up fine.

what's the point you've made up your mind already.If I showed you a cell that is made with a coating of Titanium would that make a difference.OK check out http://www.safeHHO.com

Why would you say that "I've already made up my mind" Sad Me stating that titanium is more resistant is just info that is common knowledge type info. I just wanted an explanation as to why you think they may work better. That said

I dont no much about "Titanium Substrate Technology" but it seems to be way more than just solid Titanium. I think scarecrow has tried regular solid titanium with less than impressive results.


Not sure if this is the same stuff "Titanium Substrate Technology"

Then there is Iridium Oxide coated Titanium, i believe in this case the coating is the key

RE: replacement for SS plates
I have tried Ti plates but results were no good. The plates quickly form a resistive oxide layer which reduces thier effectiveness, also any stainless touching the titanium automatically becomes sacrificial.
