Ok, I am starting this post, because I see a lot of trial and error, and let's self moderate this one.
Please only post hardcore information to help out, and put the theoretical stuff in the other threads.
Be BLUNT and right to the point. If you are incapable of reading, or do not understand, I suggest using the search feature or Google to find out more.
So here's the first shot.
I see a LOT of people who experiment using SS of different grades, and yet still end up with murky water.
Let's look at the basic elements here shall we?
Stainless Steel (SS of any grade) is NOT a pure element. It is an ALLOY of several DIFFERENT things.
So the basics of electroplating come to effect here. The ones that electrochemically dissociate the easiest are the first to leave the alloy bonds. After that, the next group will leave, and the next and the next. All polluting the water. Now when this is all done, you are left with the primary base metal, which in many cases ends up being NICKEL.
I have discovered that you can use something as simple as a t-shirt material to sandwich the plates, and for the super daring, nylon stockings. Now these systems are put under a vacuum. The vacuum draws the HHO out from between the plates. The vacuum pump is the first stage of compression for storage/ flow.
It's no secret that a vacuum will increase the internal efficiency of the cell because it removes the gaseous resistive layer of hydrogen and oxygen bubbles that form on the plates. Hydrogen and Oxygen are NOT conductors, they are insulators.
For those that seek to have the highest amperage and the lowest voltage, I suggest using a PMA alternator, and a full bridge rectifier on each segment of the TRI-Phase to rectify it to straight DC.
Now using a PMA is important. As the rotor turns it excites the field, which is now regulated by FIELD TENSION. The field tension is regulated by the internal resistance of the cell. Once the internal resistance is overcome, the voltage (whatever it may naturally be) will self adjust according to the temperature and electrolyte level/content. The remainder of the field is converted to the coveted AMPERAGE. I have a 2KW unit. It works just fine. I can connect to a 6 volt battery and it self adjusts to 6 volts for charging. 8, 12, 16, 24, 36, 48, whatever. After it overcomes the initial resistance the rest is converted to amperage.
It takes me 4 hours to convert an alternator to PMA.
DO NOT use a PMA on a fuel injected vehicle. The amperage will FRY your PCM. On the isuzu models, the TCM (Transmission Control Module) will fry out, and the ECM will remain intact.
I hope this helps anyone who is looking for blunt answers. It's basic and all can be validated.
