the tohmahak cell
Hello again everybody, I made a 3d animation of a 36 plate dry cell, its a little bit different from the conventionnal dry cell. The plate offsets the gasket so that the unit is going to act like a mini radiator and exchange heat with its environement more efficiently. I also have widen the inlet and outlet port in the plates to get a better gas and water flow.

tell me what you think, I've call this one the tohmahak cell
here's the link:

RE: the tohmahak cell
Soon people... soon!
I have the standarg drycell version of fireinthewater.com 6"x6" 36plates
but not with the wider inlet and offset plate. The video of it running will be up soon on youtube, youtube.com/tohmahak. Right now the video of the cell assembly is there under the title DryCellBuildup or something..

This animation was more to get your opinion about this desing, did you ever had any problems with cell overheating or if you've ever tought the dry cell were hard to fill and empty?
beside of that the cell is the same exact thing as a standard dry cell and should give about the same exact results...

If you want results then I had some interesting one with the previous prototype, 24 plates with 3"x6" exposed surface. The connection setup is
-nnnnn+nnnnn-nnnnn+nnnnn-. After conditionning for 2 nights it pukes 2lpm at 16V 14amps. I hope to get better efficiency with the 6x6 once its conditionned and mounted on my new bench test.

yo
last detail for the "results part" plate space = 3/32

This is just a suggestion, but with that long hole in the bottom your cell is going to have a lot of current loss through the edge of the holes. The hole in the bottom doesn't have to be that big. Put the long slot on the top to let the gas out and you'll solve tha proublem. I did like that video, good work on that.

RE: the tohmahak cell
Tomahak: testing at 14v would be more appropriate for automotive purposes. 16 is totally changing the configuration of the cell blocks by adding voltage across the cells.

RE: the tohmahak cell
Aren't the gm's alternator 16V?
I think there are two type of voltage in cars, 14,4 and 16, correct me if I am wrong.

As for the remark on the current loss in the cell, you say this loss happens at the edge of the slot? Can you explain this in greater details?
Why is it so, and thank you for this tip, i'll make the water inlet hole smaller.

i'm not aware of any system gas or diesel that has more than 14 v todays production especially gm.

RE: the tohmahak cell
I might be wrong then, I'll check with my friend, he's a mecanist...
He told me there were lots of alternator in the automotive market that put out 16V especially GM's older models.
