Hi, guys just about to install my new drycell, was thinking the resevoir bubbler needs a check valve at top to negate vacume of electrolite in resevoir,+ a check valve from cell output too resevoir bubbler , any thoughts on this ? cheers : )
We use check valves on our systems but they are placed 12"-15" from the point where we inject HHO into the intake manifold at the PCV valve. We place the flash arrestor 6" from the check valve between the check valve and the engine. As soon as the engine starts the vacuum pulls HHO from the reservoir. If the vacuum is stronger than the amount of HHO being produced, there will be a vacuum placed on the entire system. This will keep the check valve open as long as the engine is running. The check valve keeps any excess pressure from a back flash from damaging the reservoir or cell. We use a check valve with 75psi back pressure and 1 psi to open the valve. We don't use a bubbler because we route the HHO from our cells back into the reservoir and then to the engine. It accomplishes the same thing as a bubbler but without the cost. I hope you are using a vacuum switch/relay circuit to activate the power to the cell.
HI , been running wet cells for the last 4 years ,used a check valve just to let air in on the cell top,with my new drycell was mainly wondering if the resevoir bubbler top needed a check valve ...as i thought the gravity fed water flow might be restricted by vacum .... like when you dip a straw into water ..put ya finger on it ..holds it till ya let go ,i also have an integral dryer filter within the resevoir bubbler .
We too have an intergrated filter in the top of the reservoir cap which keeps any water from sloshing into the HHO line going to the engine. As far as keeping sodium or potassium from going to the engine it does nothing for that. To moy knowledge, aside from extremely strong magnetic field filters, there is no filter material made that can filter an atom. If the cell is working properly and is flushed every 6 months or so, you should have no problem with sodium or potassium doing harm to the engine. You do want to be careful about engines with aluminum intakes because soddium and potassium corrode aluminum quickly. This is why I don't recommend anyone injecting HHO into the engine through the air filter housing. This puts sodium or potassium directly onto the throttle plate which 90% of the time is made of aluminum. We had a customer with a self installed HOD system where he injected the HHO into the plastic ducting after the air filter. It cost him north of $600 to replace his intake manifold because the corrosion on his throttle plate got so bad the plate no longer opened.
the answer is a second bubblier with plain water.
this bubblier will scrub the hho and cool the gas temp for much less evaporated e-lyte and cool gas temp.
I would also add a drier to the system. example one to a air compressor they are very cheap
sorry the second bubblier has vinegar and water
I had a brain fart
