How to solve corrosion Problems on the Positive Electrode and the negative side of the Neutral Plates ?

Corrosion forming at the Liquid Flow Ports in the Electrode Plates, which are fitted in staggered Formation.             

Should the Voltage between the Plates be reduced,     or can the Problem be solved by increasing the Plate thickness  ?

 Should we increase the Gap inbetween the Plates ? Have observed that HHO Production always increases, if the Gap is

 reduced to a minimum.

Or add more Neutrals ?

Have fitted a 60Amp PWM now . Corrosion Problem on liquid Flow-Ports is completly resolved ! !

Electrolyte stays Clear for the last 4 Weeks now.

If you run your cell with a pwm thats running close to optimum frequency I have seen no corrosion. If no pwm then thicker plates at an 1/8 any closer and I would recommend a small pump to move bubbles off the plates so more water can be electrolyzed(which may increase output of the cell so be careful). Also this is pretty important but overlooked alot, make sure there are no 90 degree corners on your plates that are exposed to electrolysis. 90 degree corners cause current leakage and corrosion mostly starts at these corners. Especially through gas and electrolyte port holes on your plates.

Hi Stephan, my gap voltage is between 2.2 to 2.6 Volts. But with less Voltage the Gas Production also goes down.

Voltage seems to be a very large factor. What is your current gap voltage? I run 2.3V and it's way too high in my opinion. I would like something closer to 1.6V.
