The International Open Source Hydrogen On Demand Builders Network.
HODINFO is a collaborative think tank. We are an International group comprised of inventors, scientist, mechanics, tinkerers, fabricators, and out of the box thinkers. Our mission is to find innovative solutions to the problems that primarily limit the production and delivery of H2. As the world wakes up to the idea of using hydrogen it also becomes clear that immense infrastructure initiatives will be required to make it happen. If adequate solutions can be found to support HOD systems then the world can remove great and costly limitations on future applications. It is important to realize that the future is not just Hydrogen, it's Hydrogen-on-Demand.
Another Idea that I had in mind.. winter is comming here in Canada.. this usually mean the end of season for HHO boosting.. Unless you have heater and a place where you can always plug in.. There are heating wires that are meant to keep water pipes from freezing, sold at the harware store.. has worked fine for me.. but don't ever forget to plug it or your cell will go bust.. I've tried methanol in the cell, but it clog the cell to a point where there's no more current flow.. Don't waste you time trying it.. Another alternative is to use a very strong NaOH or KOH. It won't freeze up to -5 C But there's a limit to it because too much of it will create vapours that are bad for the engine. Remember caustic solutions will attack aluminum right on contact, wich is what your engine is mostly made of, including pistons and block most of the time. SO... I thought about using a strong peroxide solution as electrolyte or mixed with other electrolytes. Peroxide is H2O2. It's almost the same as water so it should not create residues? The one sold at drugstores is 5% wich is probably too weak to protech from freezing. You need something like 20% but that's only a guess.. Any ideas comments or experiences on using peroxide as an anti-freeze for HHO cells?
One possible drawback I see is that it may evaporate and you should have to replace it more often?
You could just create a thermostatically controlled water pump to drain the cell to a separate container if it is about to freeze.
I have now switched to a 5 neutral, drycell type, and put in the range of 20% KOH, so it " slush freezes " at about -10 deg C.
This at least keep the cell from being damaged if it freezes out. Also, I've installed a "Quick Release" setup, so that the cell can be taken out easily if temps are very cold.. Works for now..
