The electrolysis of water to provide a hydrogen and oxygen gas mix from which a small internal combustion engine can be run.
The start of my HHO gas producing system
(2 parts Hydrogen and 1 part Oxygen Gas)
A bank of four electrolysis dry cell modules on the bottom separately feeding the accumulator situated above. Operating voltage will be 24 volts at around 30 amps, however during the experimentation process this may well change.
Without any form of catalyst and just running off distilled water the device is consuming 5.18 amps at 24 volts, this will change significantly when the catalyst is added.
A bit of baking soda and the gas production shoots up as well as the
Testing with more water and outside because these things have a habit of exploding! Now to see if it produces enough HHO to run a 6.5HP lawnmower IC engine.
My choice of engine is a lawn mower replacement unit, cheap to buy and thus I don’t feel so bad taking it apart to experiment with it.
Carburettor removed as well as the petrol tank and throttle unit.
I temporarily removed the outer case to check on the possibilities of altering the timing, however it cant stay off as it also provides the forced air cooling for the engine.
Simple carb fabricated witch will allow the basic control of air flow and gas injection.
